Spice-Roasted Carrots

These Spice-Roasted Carrots are really flavorful. I used baby rainbow carrots. Roasting them brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots. They are good hot, warm or room temperature.

Skillet Lasagna

Lasagna, in general, is too much work. I do not like to make it and rarely do it. This Skillet Lasagna is WAY easier and just as good. It's all done in one skillet and ready in about 30 minutes.

The Luggage Room’s Avocado Festival Pizza

The Avocado Festival is my favorite pizza from the Luggage Room, which is a pizzeria attached to La Grande Orange, housed in the old luggage room of the Pasadena train station. The Avocado Festival is topped with avocados, tomatoes, basil, and lemon zest. At Luggage Room, they use a sourdough crust which is sublime! Here is my take on this pizza that you can make at home.
