Fried Mozzarella, Basil and Nectarine Stacks with Balsamic Glaze

I can’t stop stacking. Ever since these BLT corn fritter stacks all I want to do is stack like all my food. Stacked veggies, stacked fruit, stacked desserts, even stacked pasta. Something is wrong with me. I have a food stacking problem.

Avocado and Gouda BLT Corn Fritter Stacks with Chipotle Bourbon Dressing

Monumental BLT. Honestly, I am not sure this should really be considered a BLT. I mean I swapped the lettuce for arugula, added melty smoked gouda cheese and some mashed up avocado… because it just works and it needs to be there.

  • Brown Butter Brussels Sprout and Bacon Ravioli. Because Monday night just needs really GOOD and easy food. So ravioli for the win --> it's tossed in a nutty bacon pan sauce and topped with crispy Brussels sprouts (soo delicious). Every bite is a touch buttery, a little cheesy, and pretty close to perfection. Recipe link in profile. If you need a 30 minute dinner make this...I'm about to on stories. #eeeeeats  #f52grams  #imsomartha
  • Cinnamon Spiced Sugar Cookies with Browned Butter Frosting. Did nothing but cook and bake all day because what else do you do on a snowy Sunday? This is an oldie, but such a goodie.
