Last weekend I was motivated to make something new so I gave calzones a try. The one in the picture is not perfect, because ideally there would be more sauce over the top of the calzone (but I ran out). The calzone was great and, like pizza, there is so much you can do with it. A calzone is just a stuffed pizza so try some other sauces inside besides a red sauce. I was thinking a yummy pesto sauce or maybe even hummus! The dough takes a little time because it has to raise but you can be cutting up your veggies (for the innards) and working on the sauce while you wait.
The beauty of calzones (again, like pizza) is that you can make one per person and can completely customize the toppings for the individual person. I made these for several of us and made sure each person gave me the toppings they like so that it was made-to-order. It's a fun way to cook and everybody gets just what they want! The recipe for the calzone is in the recipe section of this site.
Another item I made last weekend was our favorite Pumpkin Spice Muffins. They are quick and very easy and the whole family loves them. In fact, I usually make a double batch and through one dozen in the freezer for a few days. These can go bad quickly so definitely keep them refrigerated and if you make a large batch, put the extras in the freezer.
These can be a nice complement to a meal, or they can even be a dessert by adding a sweet jelly to them or over a cup of coffee.
This Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe can also be found in the "recipes" section of this site.
