Porkapalooza!

Hello, all!  I’m taking a much needed mini break but never fear!  Mr. O has something he wants to say. 🙂   Hey all!  Slight interruption to your regularly scheduled blog.  Sashi has given me, Mr. Onion-Hater, this space to talk about something near and dear to my heart. Pork. Some of you may have noticed that we eat a lot of pork in our … Continue reading Porkapalooza!

Oven Roasted Tomato Pizza

Fresh tomatoes are roasted and blended for an amazing sauce on a simple pizza. Happy Secret Recipe Day!  This month I was assigned Catherine’s Living The Gourmet which she and her kids have been doing since 2008.  I really enjoyed the photography quite a bit on LTG!  I ultimately decided on doing the Oven Roasted Tomato Pizza for a number of reasons: 1) it’s been … Continue reading Oven Roasted Tomato Pizza

Chipotle BBQ Pizza with Bacon & Pineapple

Crispy crust topped with spicy BBQ sauce, lots of ooey gooey cheese, sweet tart pineapple and salty bacon… better make 2 because everyone will want some of this!   Holy chipotle!  Can you believe I haven’t had a pizza recipe on the site since October??  That just doesn’t seem right.  Yeah, yeah, never mind the hiatus.  It’s still been too long since I posted a … Continue reading Chipotle BBQ Pizza with Bacon & Pineapple

Mushroom & Bacon Pizza with reduced balsamic

Bacon.  Mushrooms cooked in bacon grease and butter.  Cheese.  Balsamic vinegar reduced to a syrup.  Life really doesn’t get much better than that, in my opinion.   I have been having so much fun during my short stint so far with the Secret Recipe Club.  As a quick recap of how it works, members are assigned the blog of another member and we then choose … Continue reading Mushroom & Bacon Pizza with reduced balsamic

Quick & Easy Garlic & Herb Rolls

I am fully aware that carb-y meals like spaghetti don’t *need* the extra carbs of garlic bread or rolls, but they taste so good and work perfectly for sopping up any extra sauce on the plate.  But, in the spirit of trying to eat right, I usually forego this wondrous side when making pasta at home. The other night, though, my craving gave way to … Continue reading Quick & Easy Garlic & Herb Rolls

Spinach & Mushroom Calzone

After posting the sinfully decadent cheesy stuffed bread a couple of weeks ago, my mind has been ablaze with other things I could do with that.  Then I smacked myself upside the head when it dawned on me: I could make calzones! I have no idea why, with my pizza loving ways, that this had NOT occurred to me before now.  It uses all the … Continue reading Spinach & Mushroom Calzone

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Being an avid lover of pizza, I’ve had a number of cheeseburger pizzas and, while tasty, they always just tasted like a pizza with some burger flavors on it.  One of the biggest mistakes I think pizza makers do with their version is using pizza sauce topped with ground beef and a bit of cheddar.  Not bad but definitely doesn’t taste like a cheeseburger.  On … Continue reading Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Pizza Burger

Valentine’s Day at our house is not really a big deal.  We’ve made commitments to one another to show we love one another every day and don’t feel the need to make a big, expensive gesture once a year to let each other know.  I fully understand how important it is for some and I’m not going to lie, getting flowers at work is an … Continue reading Pizza Burger
