Fig + Prosciutto Pasta Salad


Get ready for the most summery pasta of your life from Savory Simple. It is light, yet hearty, savory, yet sweet, and most importantly delicious. It’s perfect for the poolside, picnics, a date night, or a night in. You can even hoard it in your fridge to dole out during the week (seriously, this dish is perfect for that).

I was talking with a friend this week about the dilemma we find ourselves in on a weekly basis. We want to save money by preparing meals at home, but on a busy weeknight the thought of getting in the kitchen, let alone making the trip to get groceries before hand, seems daunting, tiring and undesirable. I’m a huge fan of recipes like this that you can store away and lean on when that tired and exhausted feeling hits you on a Wednesday at 7:30 PM and you’re starving.

Creamy Spaghetti w/ Leeks


I’ve been obsessed with leeks. Literally. Every time I go to the grocery store, I find some excuse to get one. My attitude towards life right now is: “Put a leek on it.” (Portlandia anyone?) So when my F&W daily email popped into my inbox with the subject line “Creamy One-Pot Spaghetti with Leeks,” and I saw that there was ONLY ONE STEP in the directions, I knew I had to test this recipe. Like. Now. Not even one ingredient being an anchovy could deter me from the task. It turned out amazing (anchovy and all), and just as pretty as the photo on their site, if I do say so myself. I highly recommend this if you need a quick meal for a week night, especially if you’re doing some entertaining. Five Stars.
