Today’s big idea can be titled, “Pasta Water”. Once I figured out how to use it correctly, I realized I could make a pasta dish from a combination of any veggie, any pasta, and any cheese. The world was my pasta oyster. Now I want to introduce it to you!
While I was making this pizza I got a really annoying phone call. I was peeved, but then I thought about how good the pizza was going to be, and I got over it. Is that like, comfort eating? No, this pizza was just THAT GOOD. Haven’t enjoyed a meal this much, I dare say, all SUMMER!
I really don’t like meatloaf. The words “meat” and “loaf” are fine, but they shouldn’t ever be set next to one another. Meatloaf is a generational thing as none of my friends make it anymore but I’m pretty sure it’s still part of my mom’s repertoire. I’m not hating – seriously, because it was my mom that first made this incredible recipe!
The woman I babysat for in college (and then had as one of my bridesmaids because even though she’s older than me, we became besties) almost always had a 9×13 of banana cake with cream cheese icing on the countertop. It was her husband’s fave. I would play the old “clean up the edges” game with that cake like it was my job (when my job was, in fact, babysitting).
I ran into a friend toward the end of my pregnancy that keeps up with my blog – she asked me if I thought I was having a girl. I said, yes, but why do you ask? She said “you’ve been posting lots of sweet baked goods lately”. It’s true, my 80/20 rule of healthy eating was more like 20/80 in those last few weeks. The fun, my friends, is over.
There seem to be certain foods that are untouchable – you’ll never hear a bad thing from the health industry. Salmon is one of the golden “super foods” that I know I should be eating at least once a week and I’m lucky if I eat once a month. Why? It’s kind of expensive. Enter – canned salmon!
I’ve had this cookie on my website for a while but it was an oldie; I love “hybrid” cookies and this one is my very best. It was definitely time to remake the post!
