Pizza pizza

Using the oven makes my apartment waaaaay warmer – so obviously pizza time.

Used my trusty pizza dough recipe – made two pizzas.

Pepperoni and Sausage:

– spread olive oil over the rolled out crust, rolled super thin, 1/4″-1/2″

– sprinkle with mozzarella

– cook some spicy italian sausage, crumble over top of pizza

– sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and basil/rosemary

Sausage, Red Onion, Goat Cheese, and Balsamic

– olive oil over thin crust

– mozz

– crumble italian sausage, then diced red onion, then goat cheese

– top with black pepper and drizzle with balsamic

Bake both at 500 until cheese bubbles, 7-10 minutes. Enjoy!


Spicy and sweet


This summer weather has me in an eternal grilling mood.


Also my basil plant is finally leafy enough I can cook with it!


Found a recipe for avocado basil pasta that was simple enough to assemble on my deck while I grilled some Spicy Honey Chicken and salmon burgers I found in my freezer while looking for chicken and only finding one breast.

Recipes below – I grilled my avocados for some extra flavor and the chicken glaze was less messy than the recipe led me to believe so fear not! Did get some significant flare ups the next time I grilled though so burn it off before you finish grilling – or clean your grate unlike my lazy self. I also grilled some asparagus for a snack while I was cooking the rest of my dinner – easy and tasty and fast. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and grill till bright green preferably rotating a few times without being lost into the grill.




Enjoy! PS goes well with an IPA and a view.
