Salami and Hot Pepper Sicilian Pizza

Most favorite thing about quarantine: this Salami and Hot Pepper Sicilian Pizza! Least favorite thing about quarantine: not being able to physically share it with anyone outside my own home. I NEED you guys to make this – it’s so delicious and a thick-crust, cheese-loaded, spicy moment is guaranteed to make your life better.

Charred Corn Salad

This salad has me feeling all shorts and flip-flops and outdoor dining vibes. And, super grateful spring is here. Charred Corn Salad is fresh and full of crispy-crunchy romain lettuce, raw chopped green beans, bright scallions, spicy jalapeño, creamy avocado, and beautiful shards of golden yellow corn, that’s been charred almost to death, making it toasty, juicy, and super sweet.

Golden Oreo Rice Krispie Treats with Salted Tahini Drizzle

Typing this with marshmallowy fingers and I don’t care! Big, chunky, Rice Krispie treats speckled with little vanilla-y pops of Golden Oreos and the occasional hit of salty tahini. Where have you been all my life😱 !

Dessert is a once-a-week endeavor for me and we have been snacking on these little monsters ever since I made them last Sunday. I remember Rice Krispie treats back in the day used to become cement blocks after the first day, right? I’m not sure if things have actually changed or if it’s the slick little trick this recipe includes that makes them still completely chewy and tasty a week later. Either way, they last as long as you can resist eating them.

Sausage and Broccoli Pizza with Hot Honey

Living that pizza life today, drizzled in hot honey 🙌 We’ve also got fat dollops of ricotta cheese, thinly sliced red onion, a roasted garlic crust, and, of course, crispy crumbles of sausage and perfectly roasted/borderline burnt broccoli. I feel like I’m really delivering the goods today.

Roasted Garlic Pizza Dough

Roasted Garlic Pizza Dough because… why the heck not? Why order plain french fries when sriracha fries are on the menu? Or, why drink water when there’s wine? Pizza dough is a delicious, yeasty, blank canvas and roasted garlic is your sweet, aromatic crayon to liven it up with. Mixing some soft, oozy cloves of roasted garlic into your pizza dough gives it an infusion of garlicky flavor that is the perfect match for almost any pizza topping. Next week, I’ll be posting a sausage and broccoli pizza that is truly next level thanks to this roasted garlic crust 🤤

Fried Sweet Potato Fries

Oh, man… sweet potato fries…. Taking one of nature’s most delicious creations, plunging it into hot oil, and coating it with a spicy, sugary blend of seasonings. What a privilege! It’s times like this that I’m really grateful for the ability to cook and eat and taste and enjoy food. I know – deep thoughts on deep fried sweet potatoes. I can’t help it. They bring out all the feelz in me.

Stuffed Mushrooms with Kale and Cream Cheese

High five for little roasty mushrooms stuffed with onion-y kale and cream cheese, topped with toasty breadcrumbs! These were my recent addition to a family Christmas get-together where I was tasked with bringing some kind of vegetable appetizer. I’m not a crudités kind of girl, I refuse to bring something raw to the party. I’m here to cook and make things creamy and roasted and crispy on top. Can’t stop me. So, vegetables? No problem – earthy, meaty mushrooms + kale. Appetizer? I gotcha – bite-sized + finger food. Let’s party.
