    I love good new york style pizza, but can't find the perfect pie yet.. Have tried all the pizza places in town to no avail. One place comes close, with a vodka sauce pie with fresh mozorella, prosciutto, and marinated mushrooms, but they often really skimp on the toppings and nobody like a slide where only half of it has toppings or cheese on it. I also love pasta and good steaks.

    Gordon Ramsay has a good black iron frying pan steak recipe that I use. The only difference that I do is to flip the steak every minute for more even cooking.

    One dish that I make that is great to bring is black beans for tacos.
    3 cans black beans drained
    1 can rotel (any hotness)
    1 can diced green chiles
    1 large sweet onion diced
    3+ cloves of garlic minced or put through a garlic press
    1 "box" of chicken or beef broth
    1/3-1/2 block of cream cheese softened
    salt and black pepper (to taste)
    garlic powder ~1/3tsp
    onion powder ~1 tsp
    chile powder ~2 tsp
    cumin ~2 tsp
    paprika ~1-2 tsp
    lemon juice ~1/2-1tsp
    Saute oniions and garlic until very tender and translucent
    Add Rotel and diced chiles
    Add drained black beans, broth, and spices
    Stir to combine, cover, and bring to a boil.
    Lower heat to medium and cook, stirring ocassionally until beans are tender and the mixture has cooked down (should cook down to roughly half the amounto f liquid or less).
    When the mixture appears thick enough, taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
    Remove from heat.
    Use a hand-held stick blender or food processor to puree half the mixture.
    Add softened cream cheese and stir until well combined.
    If the mixture is not tangy enough, add lemon juice. If the mixture is too bitter, add a little white sugar.

    This makes a great addition to tacos, eaten with rice, or completely pureed and served as a bean dip. It should keep for a week in the fridge and when eaten with meat / rice for tacos, makes about 10-12 servings depending on your portion size.

I did want the extra capacity for larger pot roasts, and because I eat dinner leftovers for work lunches.

    It was well worth the money because my cooktop died right after Thanksgiving last year, the cheapest replacement I could find was $600 so I haven't bothered with getting a new one yet, and since I can fry/saute foods in the Instant Pot I actually don't miss the cooktop.

    Thank you! I'll try that this weekend. Normally I coat the eggplant in egg and then cover it in panko before baking the coated slices for 15 min. It may be the flour that I'm missing.

    Every time I buy eggplant parm at the local pizza place, I find that it has this taste that I just can't replicate. And they won't tell me how they do it! Something about magicians never revealing their tricks.... In total theirs isn't as good as mine, but if I could find how to create that taste, my homemade would be absolutely killer!

    My apologies for the delayed response. Here’s my version with my tweaked notes.

    INGREDIENTS:
    1/4 (16 ounce) package saltine crackers (may need a few more depending on the size of your sheet pan)
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I use a whole bag of Nestle Minis)
    1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
    1 cup white sugar
    3/4 cup chopped walnuts (or other nuts...if desired)




    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

    2. Cover sheet pan or cookie sheet (with raised edges, not totally flat) with aluminum foil and arrange crackers in a single layer.

    3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar, and bring to a low boil. Continue boiling, stirring constantly to prevent burning, approximately 3 minutes. You want the butter and sugar to be completely blended, no layer of melted butter on top or sides of sauce pan. Drizzle sugar mixture evenly over crackers (I also spread with a spoon back if needed).

    4. Bake at 425 degrees F for 5 minutes, or until edges begin to brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top. As they melt, I like to smooth the warm chocolate with a spatula for a more even layer of chocolate. Sprinkle with nuts, gently pressing into the melted chocolate. Cool in refrigerator until chocolate has hardened, and break into pieces. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.


    I also substitute the saltines with graham crackers and white chocolate chips. Delicious, but the white chocolate doesn’t usually melt as evenly as regular chocolate.
