Burst Tomato Galette with Corn and Zucchini

Burst Tomato Galette with Corn and Zucchini

I’m not a vegetarian.  Far from it: one of my favorite things in the world is a thick, juicy cheeseburger.  At one point in my life, I pretty much threw in my chips with the “a meal isn’t a meal without some kind of meat” crowd.  I imagine that my husband still thinks the same way.  But over the years, something funny has happened… we’re just not eating as much meat.  Without an effort, we’re eating more vegetarian meals than ever.  And it happens just sort of… accidentally.

Fig, Ricotta, and Arugula Pizza

Fig and Ricotta PizzaSince I just gave you guys my favorite recipe for easy pizza dough, I thought it only right to give you a little something special today to top it off.  I know this isn’t your typical pizza recipe- but that’s what I like about it.  Don’t get me wrong; I will worship at the altar of cheesy, saucy goodness any old day.  But sometimes, I’m craving a little something different in the pizza department.

No-Knead Pizza Dough

No-Knead Pizza DoughSo, I figured it was about time that I just went ahead and gave No-Knead Pizza Dough its own post.  Every time I toss a pizza recipe at you guys, I link up to the recipe that I use for dough as an afterthought.  But after taking down another fabulous pizza last night, and realizing that this crust is really what we are in love with, I thought it only fair to let it shine all by itself.  So while it’s not exciting, it’s one of the recipes I use over and over and over again in my kitchen.

Croissant Ice Cream Sandwiches

Croissant Ice Cream SandwichYOU GUYS.  This is not so much a recipe as a public service announcement.  I’m not even going to waste time with a pithy little intro on this one.  I just need to cut straight to the chase: CROISSANT ICE CREAM SANDWICHES. I have made these twice now, and both times, I’ve managed to mumble through a mouth full of buttery flaky dough, ice cream dribbling down my chin, “How is this not a THING?!”  As in, why haven’t we always been doing this?  Why has no one else thought of this and shouted it from the rooftops?  How is there no trendy downtown ice cream parlor that specializes in this funky delicacy?!

Nectarine and Blueberry Poppyseed Cake

Poppyseed Cake with Nectarines and BlueberriesThere are a lot of good things about being a parent.  But there are also some pretty lame parts about being a parent. You know what one of the worst parts of being a parent is?  When you have to be mean mommy. You know… you have to insist that naps are indeed necessary, even when the park is still way more fun.  You have to take away the favorite truck after it is thrown across the room. You have to explain over and over again that food goes in our mouths, not on the floor.   Basically, you have to be the meanest mom ever. [Read more...]
