Quick and Easy Spaghetti Carbonara

I always like to try and re-create the meals I've enjoyed on my travels, and this Spaghetti Carbonara not only brought back some wonderful memories of Italy, it was so quick and easy to prepare that my husband and I could spend less time in the kitchen and more time reminiscing. It uses only 5 ingredients, and it's ready in just 20 minutes. When Under the Tuscan Sun came out in movie theaters in 2003, I watched Diane Lane fall hopelessly in love with the picturesque countryside of Tuscany -- and I, too, fell hard.

Swedish Meatballs: Quick and Easy Meals

We're big fans of the smorgasbord, the Swedish buffet-style meal where groaning plates of herring, cheeses, salads, sausages, and vegetables present a perfect Scandinavian feast. And no smorgasbord worth its salt would be without kottbullar (Swedish meatballs). They're hearty, meaty party food (small enough so that they're easy to eat while you're mingling), and, served with a side of buttery noodles (sprinkled with parsley) or mashed potatoes, they're a great entree for nights when you don't have time to fuss.

Holiday Quick Breads and Cakes: Easy Does It

Fancy Christmas cakes are best left to professional bakers, except for those rare times when you feel like taking on a major project -- maybe a Cherry-and-Chocolate Buche de Noel or a Six-Layer Coconut Cake with passion fruit filling that takes almost 6 hours to make! Personally I go for fast-and-easy whenever I decide to bake. That means quick breads and loaf pan cakes -- always festive and perfect for entertaining or even gift-giving.
