I am in Tampa near USF every week for about three days and have yet to find a really Chow worthy place. Casa Don Jose is OK, but that is about it. I need help for places within 10 -15 minutes of I-75 and Fletcher. Thanks.
We taste product recommendations from the staff of four different Trader Joe's locations.
Easy Philly Cheesesteaks
Philly cheesesteaks are delicious but divisive. This easy version has thin-sliced rib eye, sautéed peppers, onions, and optional mushrooms, and Provolone (sorry, Whiz fans).
Easy Spinach Lasagna
What's not to love about layers of pasta, gooey cheese, and rich tomato sauce? Lasagna is simply delicious, and this spinach and ricotta version (with Parmesan and mozzarella too) is as easy to make as it is to eat.
Sear-Roasted Lamb Loin Chops
Lamb loin chops may seem fancy, but they're super easy to cook in a single pan. Just sear, roast, and rest for juicy perfection.
Three Cheese Mac and Cheese with Panko Bread Crumb Topping
This three cheese mac and cheese with Cheddar, Asiago, and Romano is creamy, gooey, gloriously cheesy, and beautifully crisp on top thanks to the panko bread crumbs.
Authentic Black Bean Recipe by Gregory
Perfectly tender and deeply seasoned with garlic, onions, peppers, and bay leaf, these authentic black beans take a while to cook, but are totally worth it.
