Fig and goat cheese naan pizza

fig and goat cheese naan pizza

Fresh figs seem to be everywhere lately.  We’ve seen them in all the best restaurants, too.  I grabbed some the other day and paired with my favorite cheese!  Boom.  Gotta perfect pizza. This pizza would be a lovely lunch, a nice light dinner or the perfect appetizer! Naan is a wonderfully light bread that’s not heavy by any means, so you don’t get the chewy, thick, gluteny stuff that’s in regular pizza dough.  It makes a great pizza crust. Most...

Pesto Chicken and Zoodles

I have a spiralizer that we’ve been using like crazy.  Zoodles have become a new favorite.  Even the pickiest here in the fam are embracing them.  So, pesto chicken and zoodles have been added to the dinner rotation. Zoodles have a nice texture to them.  Even if you’re a noodle devotee, you’ll be surprised at the nice consistency.  They have a bounce with a slight crispiness.  And incredibly easy to make! The first time I made them I kinda worried...

Spicy Meatball Soup

Summer isn’t exactly soup season, but that doesn’t stop us from eating it every so often.  I was browsing through the Food Network Magazine when I came across the Moroccan Meatball Soup.  So, I tweaked the recipe to include the ingredients I had on hand and it became Spicy Meatball Soup. It looked fantastic, but I didn’t have harissa on hand, which would basically be the key ingredient to make it Moroccan.  So, I went to my Sriracha of course.  It’s...

In our house we eat a ton of sweet potatoes.  Whole, diced, cut into fries.  Why not spiralized?   We’ve seen plenty of recipes for zoodles, so I bought a spiralizer and I found myself sticking a sweet potato on the thing first.  They turned out great! Using this was the easiest ever.  It made a ton of little curly sweet potatoes.  Once I figured it out, it took about 30 seconds to cut each potato.  I’m not usually into gimmicky kitchen...

Who doesn’t love fish tacos.  They are so good and anytime we’re at a decent restaurant and spot them on the menu, I’m getting them.  Everybody needs to have a recipe for easy fish tacos on hand. For so long I hardly made them. They always intimidated me for some reason.  I guess because I didn’t know where to start with the sauce or what fish to use.  But, Sriracha oh how you have change me!  I discovered mixing some of this...

Best turkey burger ever

best turkey burger ever

Years ago, I was watching Oprah and she was raving about this turkey burger she tried.  She said it was the best burger she’d had and even shared the recipe.  I immediately downloaded it and I’ve been making it ever since. But, there were quite a few ingredients in it.   For the sake of time and sanity I’ve streamlined the recipe over the years so it’s much easier, but kept the key ingredients.  I can’t tell a difference in taste at all...
