I love the "fake it, don't make it" cooking philosophy. Semi-homemade cooking. Whatever you want to call it.
Friend Dave and I tried this Samosa recipe from Real Simple magazine, and it turned out wonderfully. (This is Real Simple's photo - ours actually looked better!)
Easy, fun to make, pretty to look at, delicious, and vegetarian to boot. Nice way to use up whatever veggies are in the fridge. When Nate's a little older, I think he'll have a lot of fun making these with me.
You can find all of their Fake it recipes here. I've tried the lasagne before and it was fun and easy.
Got any other good ones to share?
