Busy, busy summer! It. Is. HOT! But not like the regular hot, I mean hot to the point people don’t even want to go outside let alone vacation. Still, we decided to brave that scorching heat and travel a couple hours away for a nice stay in Austin. Were we able to still have a fun time and not melt under the pressure???Continue reading “2022 Family Vacation Austin TX”
Happy Foodie Friday fellow eaters! I am so excited about todays meal because todays meal was brought to us compliments of delicious canned cranberry sauce!
Happy Foodie Friday!!! Eating veggies is super easy with this recipe from Honeyed Home. It’s jam packed with a medley of mushrooms, bell peppers, scallions, and jalapeños for a spice kick.
The only thing I didn’t make was the crust (I’m 9 mos prego, there’s no way I’m making pizza dough lol). No worries though because I love to sub it with one of my favorites, Naan original bread. It can be found hanging out in mostly any deli and it tastes AMAZING!
The veggies are so fresh and accommodating with this pizza. The mushrooms almost taste sausage like with a sprinkle of salt and pepper when sautéed. I also used some fresh tomato sauce that my youngest sister made from scratch right from their garden and let me tell you, it is one of my favorite parts of the whole meal! It’s sweet and acidic just like I like. Unfortunately it’s not available in store, but I’m sure any marina will work for this dish.
This pizza was gone in minutes! I almost forgot to take a picture because it was so good. I had to snag hubbies plate so that’s why it’s missing a slice. Point proven lol!! Until next week, happy eating 😊
This is no ordinary pizza. This pizza has been the most requested pizza hands down by my husband since the first time I made it. At LEAST once a month I get the request for us to have this dish and with good reason….it’s the BEST pizza ever! Hands down!
The recipe I used is a slight variation from the Bobby Flay original Pizza with NY Strip, Blue Cheese and Balsamic Glaze. For my dish I use the Garlic Naan in the bread section of most grocery stores. I do use the New York Strip as well. It has to be the NY Strip or one of those finer cuts because otherwise it just doesn’t do the pizza justice.
Chef Flays recipe calls for watercress, but I can never seem to find it so I sub in fresh arugula to give it a nice peppery cut. And then the cheese I never deviate: Monterey, Smoked Amish Blue Cheese, and shaved Parmasean. The blue cheese and parm really add a nice sharpness to the mild monterey cheese.
The icing on the cake is a tangy sweet balsamic glaze that is striated over the top. Talk about absolutely delicious! I never have to ask hubby if he wants to eat this. He always wants to eat this lol!!!!
Til next time, happy eating 😋
