Homemade Pizza: Add What You Want To It!

Homemade pizza, add what you want to it.

I woke up yesterday knowing it was time to feed my bread starter. I laid in bed wondering what to do with my day and suddenly a fun idea floated across my brain. I asked my son “Do you want to make homemade pizza today?” He looked at me and said “homemade pizza?” I nodded, then said (more…)

 Vegetarian Chile Verde paired with Sutter Home White Zinfandel #SutterHomeSweetOnSpice

Have you ever tried a sweet wine with spicy food? Mmmmm, I think it may be my new favorite flavor combination. I had never thought about it, until recently I was out to dinner and I ordered a super spicy green chile enchilada. I took one bite and the chile heat in my mouth shot up to ‘can you handle these flames’ status. As I sat there inhaling ‘save me’ gulps of air my friend handed me her glass of Sutter Home White Zinfandel . I reached for it thinking it was my life line back to a neutral palate, but was instead surprised at what a lovely transformation the spicy combined with the sweet wine evolved into. I immediately took note and asked “what are you drinking?” (more…)

Spicy Peanut Sauce Noodles: An great way to make your family swoon.

Feeling my fitness I drink lots of water and eat salads. If want to relax, I drink tea and have a cookie. When I miss my Grandpa (which is often) and want to feel closer to him I eat Mexican food or a sandwich with chips. You get what I’m saying. (more…)

I’m a mom. A mom that tries to satisfy everyone in my family. If you follow me on social media or here on my blog you know my son is a strawberry fanatic. He is extremely picky with the quality of strawberries and will not allow them to pass his lips if they are not red to the stem or even slightly bruised. With this type of inspection going on we have bought strawberries grown around the planet in search of what is ideal to his tastes. He has finally nailed down that he prefers strawberries grown here in his homestate of California. (more…)

Tomato Olive Jalapeño Focaccia:

Tomato Olive Jalapeño Focaccia is a nice mix of Italy meets California all wrapped up in a billowy bread.

Over the Summer of 2017 I had the grand experience of exploring Italy and all it’s glory. We adventured from the south tip of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the northern peak of Venice to the mountain tops of Perugia to the Piazza De Popolo of Rome, and what I found was Italy is very similar to California as far as produce is concerned.
