    Like every good Italian girl, I appreciate a well-made meatball sandwich. There's just something about the combination of textures -- crispy French bread meeting cheesy, aromatic chopped meat -- that makes my taste buds very happy. But I'll be honest. Your typical meatball hero can get a little boring. There, I said it.

    So I was over the moon to find a recipe that incorporates a few unorthodox ingredients and really kicks your meatball sandwich up a few notches. Chili powder? Check. Cinnamon? Yes, please. Allspice? Now we're talking.

    Oh my goodness, it's so COLD out there! Can you think of a better food to warm your body and soul than a hearty, delicious, and -- yes -- extremely kid-friendly soup?

    Tomato soup is a notoriously easy one to make, a quality that comes in handy on days when your commute drags you down and the last think you want to do is slave away in a kitchen when you get home. But what really kicks this creamy soup recipe up a notch is the addition of fun grilled cheese croutons. It's pretty common to see grilled cheese sandwiches accompany tomato soup as a side dish -- but grilling them into a crispy state of perfection and chopping them into cute crouton cubes = amaaazing

    Christmas has come and gone. So now you're left with a bunch of ham ... turkey ... goose ... duck ... maybe even steak after your Christmastime eating and drinking binge. Not only do you feel extremely bloated and exhausted, you need a detox ASAP. And what to do with all those leftovers?

    What better way to use up that meat than putting it over some fresh greens and chopped veggies? This base recipe for steak salad from Giada De Laurentiis, with a delicious red wine vinaigrette, is great to start out with, then you can do whatever you like. Mix up the type of lettuce, cheese, veggies ... and a special shout-out, if you are from Pittsburgh (like I am!), there's nothing better than putting some warm French fries on top.

    When it comes to my all-time favorite places to eat, Paris tops the list and Rome comes in a very close second. But while chefs in both of these cities do wonderful things at dinnertime, they always leave me wanting more around noon -- when the best food in the world to chow down on is a big, hearty, delicious American sandwich. I am far from the only one who feels this way. The country actually pays tribute to this culinary treat with National Sandwich Day on November 3, and incredibly cool maps like this one show the best sandwich from every state. But don't be surprised if, like me, your favorite sandwich didn't make the cut.

    I know what you're thinking: ooh, a salad -- big whoop! Or maybe you're wondering what this side dish would go well with -- where's the beef/main event? Well, I'm here to tell you that my red meat-devouring husband wasn't just satisfied with this delicious Autumn Chopped Salad (along with a warm, hearty slice of baguette bread on the side), he was begging me for seconds. It boasts bacon and is a perfect mix of salty and sweet. And isn't it just about as pretty as an autumn wreath?
