When Do You Blow on Your Liquor?
Hint: It's not when it's too hot.
Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet cake is festive, fine-crumbed, moist, and delicious with cream cheese frosting.
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.
Crispy Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
Ridiculously easy yet super impressive (and naturally, delicious), these crispy prosciutto-wrapped asparagus spears are perfect appetizers or cocktail party food.
Homemade mayonnaise is surprisingly easy to make, and since it tastes so much better than store-bought, it may sway even avowed mayo-haters. Plus, you can turn it into all sorts of other sauces and dips.
