the best homemade pizza crust recipe..ever

Most of you know that every Friday I make pizza. Tuesdays are usually tacos, and the rest of the week is a gamble. My culinary creativeness is definitely in hibernation right now. But, despite the lack of creativity in having pizza for dinner, there is still a recipe to be had, and some pictures to go along with it. (I know, it’s been a while and I’m not even going to start with some random excuse at how busy/tired/writers block  consumed me)  I was gone living life, loving Christmas, writing things other than recipes and taking photos of things other […]

spinach “burgers”

DSC_0015-31

I promised something a bit more “booty-friendly” and here it is! These are high in protein, low in carbs and absolutely delicious. Now, if you’re not fond of green things.. stick around. I have something pink and fluffy later. Mix well in a bowl like this: Now, form into burger-sized patties. (or you can do spinach balls) Heat a non stick skillet over med-high. Spray with a bit of cooking spray. Some may have to wait their turn, depending on your skillet size.   Serve on your choice of bread product, or eat them “naked”. I you want to know […]

chicken divan

And the answer is… chicken divan! I have to admit, I never had this dish until fairly recently. I don’t know why either, because I love curry…. hmmm maybe it’s because my mom never made it growing up? Maybe because it’s one of those dishes you just don’t see on restaurant menus? I guess I will never know. Now for the recipe: Bear with me because the first recipe I had for this was made with mayo… and that after baking basically became an oil slick that resembled an oven version of the exx on-Valdez. No. ugh. Don’t want that! […]

spinach stuffed flank steak

It begins with garlic… oh the glory of garlic…. Mix your chopped garlic with butter and dab it all over your flank steak…and put some coarse salt and fresh ground pepper all over it. Oops… this is blurry. Sorry. It’s a mixture similar to the spinach stuffed chicken breasts except with some chopped fresh basil added to the mix and extra garlic-butter from earlier. Wrap it up like a big tortilla… and secure with cooton kitchen twine. (I love that stuff) I baked it about 45min at 350. It was well done at the ends and pink in the center. […]

This is not what we had for dinner last night, but it was dessert. We had spinach stuffed flank steak, I just didn’t want to be redundant with the spinach thing.
