black bean enchiladas.

My family came to visit this past weekend for the Easter holiday, and I knew just what to make for dinner Friday night that was easy, filling and above all, meat-free: Enchiladas. This recipe for black bean enchiladas was a winner all-around (and, in my opinion, tasted even better than most meat-filled enchiladas I’ve had).

mexican molletes ftw.

I’m coming at you with a new series, friends! It’s called “Meatless Monday” (original, I know). Every week, I plan to post a quick and easy, real-life meatless recipe Elliott and I often eat during the week or on the weekend in hopes that, if you are aboard the Meatless Monday bandwagon, want to get on it or just need a little inspiration in the veggie department from time to time, this will help set off some creative sparks.

Why am I doing this, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you.

When it comes to pizza crust, this gal doesn’t mess around. I’ve been around the block, if you will, when it comes to homemade pizza crusts. So when I find a new pizza crust recipe, it better be good.

Oh. Magosh. Did this one ever fit the bill.

You see, there are two things I love to eat more than most things in the world: Pizza and garlic bread. If these two things were their own food groups, I’d be super-duper healthy. I would freaking own the food pyramid. You get the idea — I have a serious food crush on pizza and garlic bread. So when mine eyes laid upon this particular recipe which COMBINES THE TWO, I was utterly bewitched, body and soul (all Mr. Darcy-style).

cheesy pizza puffs.

There are so many cookies in my life right now.

Seriously — I’ve got pepperminty candy cane cookies, fudgy chocolate crinkles, peanut butter balls and snickerdoodles coming out of my ears. You’d think — and normally, I would think, too — that this is a Christmas miracle, but I’ve come to learn that my sweet tooth can handle only so many sweets. It’s a diva like that.

Holy snowfall, Batman!

That’s right, we had our first snow here today (well, more like a rain/snow snot — yes, snot — but snow was involved). We also had the most insane wind gusts — so insane, that my poor umbrella became a casualty. I’d show you the remains, but I maintain respect for my beloved umbrella. Just imagine a tangled mess of wires and me, once dry, now soaking wet, my bangs in a bird’s nest-like shape. It was a lovely sight, I’m sure.

Needless to say, I was looking forward to coming home tonight and cozying up with my cat, my husband, a pair of warm socks and a tasty Indian dinner I had planned, complete with chapati.
