Mini Polenta Pizzas

By on October 28, 2014

I know, I know, I have been MIA for a few days now, I do apologize.  I missed you guys, and I meant to blog every day, like EVERY SINGLE DAY and life happens.  Kids are sick, work is crazy, tweeting evening while watching Pressure Cooker, falling asleep on Lightroom, falling asleep at 9.30pm on a Friday night.  I am such a party animal :)!

What do you want to hear about first?  My simple and yummy gluten-free mini pizza or my crazy fun experience on the show Pressure Cooker?

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw those pictures (and if you don’t, follow me, it’ll be fun!) and if you follow me on Twitter you might have seen my tweets from last Tuesday when it aired.

What is the show about?  Pressure Cooker is a cooking competition for home cooks.  Grab 5 ingredients in your fridge and make a meal for your family.  It sounds easy, challenging and fun and it is!

7 simple steps to a Caprese pizza

By on June 14, 2014

7 steps!  It is that simple to get a soft dough, bubbly boccocini cheese and the flavorful pesto!  Oh and did I mention that bubbly cheese?  All melting and it will make a string of cheese from the pizza to your mouth!

Gosh, I got myself convinced!  I will do some more tomorrow!  Too good to be ignored!

Also, I made mini pizza because it is easier for the kids, each their own.  But you can make 2 big ones with that recipe.  Or still make small ones as an appetizer.  Yes, I will do that tomorrow.
