Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion BBQ Naan Pizzas

What I Ate This Week | BBQ Sweet Potato Naan Pizzas Are Everything Delicious

I think I use naan as a pizza crust more than I actually use it as naan. You know how when you’re 10 and you discover English muffin pizzas and then everyday after school, you’re making English muffin pizzas because they are the easiest, best snack? Naan pizzas are the adult equivalent of that. Sweet…

Twice-Baked Butternut Squash

What I Ate This Week | Twice-Baked Butternut Squash & Other Thanksgiving-y Things

If I were making a big Thanksgiving dinner this year, I would make Twice-Baked Butternut Squash. But I think we’re probably going to get stuff from Whole Foods for dinner next Thursday. I am a bad food blogger! Bad! Our families are in Illinois so it’s just Chris and me, so while every year I…

Peach and Kale Salad with Maple Miso Vinaigrette

What I Ate This Week | Back to Normal!

Back to normal! I can barely contain my excitement! I’m finished with the recipe part of my cookbook, which means we don’t have to eat cookbook food all the time. The cookbook food was delicious, of course! But sometimes it’s nice to be able to say, “I’m not hungry for a big dinner tonight. Let’s…

Sweet Corn, Sausage & Thyme Pizza Recipe

Recipe | Sweet Corn, Sausage & Thyme Pizza

It has come to my attention that other bloggers have already started posting pumpkin and apple recipes. Sorry guys, I’m not letting go of summer produce that easily. You’re going to have to drag me away from corn and zucchini the same way you have to drag your 3-year-old out of the toy department at…

Oatmeal Chia Berry Crisp

What I Ate This Week | Healthy Blueberry Crisp & The First Corn Pizza of the Summer

There was corn at the farmers market last weekend. Corn! In June! Granted, it was only one stand. And really, it wasn’t even a stand, it was just a pick-up truck full of corn. But still: corn! That’s something to get excited about, right? (And clearly I’m not the only one who gets excited about…

Grilled Caprese Naan Pizza Recipe

Recipe | Grilled Caprese Naan Pizza

When we were in Atlanta last week, we ate lunch at a restaurant a few blocks from our hotel called Naan Stop. I got a naanwich filled with chola (no, not that kind of chola) and a sweet apple-tamarind curry, which was messy, but delicious. Why are there not more naan restaurants?! There really should…

Stuffed Zucchini with Creamy Peanut Lime Sauce

What I Ate This Week | Stuffed Zucchini with Quinoa & Peanut Sauce + Other Peanut Buttery Things

You know how sometimes you get to the last few bites of a meal and you feel a little sad because you don’t want it to end? (You do, right? That’s not just me?) We had a lot of those kinds of meals this week. It was glorious. And full of peanut butter. Here’s what…

Lemon Gremolata Pizza with Cauliflower Crust Recipe

Recipe | Lemon Gremolata Pizza with Cauliflower Crust

I am so tardy to the cauliflower crust pizza party. I’ve been reading about this magical pizza crust for years, but until a few weeks ago, I had never tried it myself. So I sought out the original cauliflower pizza crust recipe and gave it a go. It looks almost like a giant omelet, right?…

Indian Cauliflower Pizza

What I Ate This Week | Indian Pizza, Vegan Matzo Balls & Moving to a New Host

Thank you for bearing with me as I switched hosts yesterday. The last time I moved to a new host, I didn’t turn off comments and it was a complete disaster, so this time I disabled them for 24 hours. I guess maybe I should have announced that beforehand, but I tend to be better…

Green Mexican Chocolate Smoothie

What I Ate This Week | Quinoa Mac & Cheese, Green Mexican Chocolate Smoothies & My Crazy Week

I always find myself telling people, “This week has been crazy.” It’s true to a degree, but also a slight exaggeration. Is it really crazy? No. Just busy. But holy heck, this week has been crazy. For real! Chris was on a business trip this week and the second day he was gone, I suspected…

Portabella & Kale Pizza with Roasted Garlic Sauce Recipe

Recipe | Portabella & Kale Pizza with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Do I post too many pizza recipes? I hope the answer to this question is no, because I’m about to post another. I just couldn’t help myself! I’m feeling pretty jazzed about pizza lately since I made two discoveries: 1) The best whole wheat pizza crust recipe in existence. 2) The magic of pizza stones….

French Bread Pizza with Pesto & Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recipe

Recipe | French Bread Pizza with Pesto & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

When you first move in with someone, you learn all sorts of little tidbits about that someone’s personality. Some of these things are endearing, while others, not so much. After moving in with me, for example, I’m sure my husband wasn’t pleased to find out that I make up little songs about everything. Especially cats….

Apple Cheddar Pizza with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts

Recipe | Apple Cheddar Pizza with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts

Working on this recipe was quite an internal struggle for me. I knew I wanted to do an apple cheddar pizza, and I kind of thought I wanted to add walnuts too. But a little voice kept nagging at me. “Add caramelized onions! Caramelized onions!” I tried to resist because, well, I don’t want you…

Roasted Butternut Squash Tacos

What I Ate This Week | Butternut Squash Tacos (with Corn!)

Early September is a pretty good time for fresh produce. Most summer fruits and veggies are still in season. But! Fall produce is also starting to be in season. It’s like when The Real Housewives of Atlanta is wrapping up and the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is just starting and…

Recipe | Spicy Mango Pizza with Black Beans & Zucchini

Before we get to the Spicy Mango Pizza, I have something really important to share with you. Are you ready? I’m writing this post while sitting at a desk. And fine, maybe that doesn’t sound all that important to you, but it is to me. Because for the year and a half that I’ve been…

Pesto Pizza

Recipe | Pesto Pizza with Roasted Red Peppers, Cremini Mushrooms & Asparagus

It’s no secret: I’m excited about spring. Super excited! While the weather and sunshine and longer days are nice, it’s the gardening that I’m really psyched about. Last summer was our first as homeowners and I was finally able to grow a variety of herbs to cook with mere steps from my kitchen. Oh yes,…

Roasted Broccoli Recipe

What I Ate This Week + A Super Easy Roasted Broccoli Recipe

I make this easy roasted broccoli recipe at least twice a month, sometimes more. It’s so simple, it hardly qualifies as a recipe, but since we had it this week, I thought I’d include it in this post. Here’s what you do: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with olive…

Wild Mushroom & Potato Pizza

Recipe | Wild Mushroom & Potato Pizza on Whole Grain Naan

There’s a little song by the band Cinderella that’s called “Don’t Know What You’ve Got Till It’s Gone.” (Stop judging me for my encyclopedic knowledge of hair metal! Every rose has its thorn.) And when it comes to restaurants, my husband and I didn’t know how good we had it in Madison until we moved…
