Thumb_9821_Ham, Pineapple And Mushroom Pizza

This pizza fills out the full spectrum of tastes. There's sweet pineapple, tart tomato sauce, salty ham, a hint of bitter olive oil, meaty mushrooms and ham, and spicy red pepper flakes. We've found that really thin lavash bread works best for homemade pizzas, but pita bread and tortillas work, too.

Thumb_10339_Sausage, Spinach And Cheese Lasagna

Thumb_10339_Sausage, Spinach And Cheese Lasagna

Lasagna takes time to assemble, but the sighs of joy and contentment with one bite of this cheesy, spinach filled Italian delight makes it all worth it.  For a vegetarian version, try omitting the sausage or replacing it with a soy substitute - it tastes just as good. 

Thumb_15062_Simple Spaghetti And Meatballs

Thumb_15062_Simple Spaghetti And Meatballs

This is Claire's grandmother's classic spaghetti and meatballs recipe. She always made twice the meatballs she needed, because inevitably a few would get swiped from the pot before dinner. If you have any meatballs left, make a meatball sub the next day.

Thumb_5028_Whole Wheat Linguine With Andouille, Carrots And Tarragon

In this simple pasta dish whole wheat noodles stand up well to smokey andouille sausage. Tomato sauce and carrots balance that richness, and fresh tarragon adds an aromatic note.

Thumb_7117_Prosciutto, Mozzarella And Basil Pita Pizza

We love to use lavash or pita as pizza crust. It's fast, easy and gets perfectly crispy, especially when you go light on the toppings and really crank up the oven. New to cookthink?  Welcome!  Try our innovative search tool, or take a look at the blog. 

Thumb_9730_Texas Chili

Thumb_9730_Texas Chili

Here's a basic Texas chili recipe. It calls for beef, of course, and never beans. You can buy your beef pre-ground, but try pulsing cubed beef in a food processor until coarsely ground for fresher, tastier chili. The list of toppings is endless, but diced onion, sour cream and cheddar cheese are classic.

Thumb_8670_Lima Beans And Radicchio With Pancetta

This is a dish that might just change your opinion of lima beans from "yuck" to "yum!" Stick to fresh or frozen, instead of canned, and the results are quite delicious.

Thumb_5554_Beef, Okra And Potato Soup

Thumb_5554_Beef, Okra And Potato Soup

A great catch-all soup when you want to use up leftover okra or potatoes. You could add just about any vegetable to this soup -- winter greens, corn, squash. Always look for small, tender okra.
