Supreme Pizza Pasta Bake

Loaded with your favorite pizza toppings, this Supreme Pizza Pasta Bake is an easy and delicious weeknight meal!

Loaded with your favorite pizza toppings, this Supreme Pizza Pasta Bake is an easy and delicious weeknight meal!We eat a lot of pizza here in our house.  We spent many Saturday nights tweaking (not twerking…although I know it sounds similar) and perfecting our homemade pizza dough recipe, and now it’s a staple weekend meal around here.  But here’s the thing.  Homemade pizza dough takes a bit of planning to make.  You’ve got to start it the night before so it develops flavor.  Then you have to mix it up in the afternoon and let it rise so that the dough is ready for some awesome toppings come dinner-time.  I don’t mind the extra effort…especially when the pizzas are so darned tasty!  But I wanted to find a way to adapt this pizza recipe into a weeknight meal.  Say hello to the Supreme Pizza Pasta Bake.Continue Reading »

IPA Pizza Crust

We all know beer and pizza go well together…so why not try using beer in your pizza?
This IPA Pizza Crust is a fun twist on a classic!

We all know beer and pizza go well together...so why not try using beer in your pizza?  This IPA Pizza Crust is a fun twist on a classic!A couple of summers ago, I had the distinct pleasure of flying out on a last minute trip to Wichita, Kansas.  There was a chance I would be needed to testify as a witness in a trial, and so off I went…on a 5:30am flight on Sunday morning.  I didn’t have much choice in this matter, and it happened to fall over my birthday.  Needless to say, I wasn’t terribly excited about this trip.  I have nothing at all against Wichita…I just didn’t want to go there over my birthday.  Sure enough, I wasn’t called as a witness, and I was sent back home on Wednesday morning.  But that didn’t stop me from making the best of my first (and quite possibly) last trip to Wichita!Continue Reading »

Turn one of your favorite dips into an entree with this tasty Spinach Artichoke Tart!What is your one go-to recipe?  You know the recipe I mean.  It’s the recipe you pull out when you find out your husband’s boss is coming over for dinner.  You’ve made it 1,000 times.  (Ok, maybe not 1,000…but you still almost know the recipe by heart.)  You know it’ll taste awesome.  You know it’ll impress your family or guests.  If you’re anything like me, then you probably have a handful of recipes that could fit this description.  But one of my favorites is a savory artichoke and asiago cheese tart.Continue Reading »

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Seasoned with curry powder and cumin, a hot bowl of this Roasted Cauliflower Soup is the perfect lunch on chilly spring day!

Seasoned with curry powder and cumin, a hot bowl of this Roasted Cauliflower Soup is the perfect lunch on cold winter day!A couple of weeks ago, my wife went out of town on a work trip.  Now I love having her here, but there is something totally awesome about having the house all to yourself for a few days, too.  Tell me you know the feeling!  I was tempted to sit in the basement and play video games all day…but nope, I used that quiet time to get some work done.  I know, I know.  All work and no play makes David boring.  I guess I was a bit boring for those couple of days…although I did wander out for a late-night curling game one night.  That counts, right?Continue Reading »
