These individual pizzas with pomodoro sauce, burrata cheese and balsamic glaze are a perfectly portioned meal.

A few days ago someone posted on Facebook asking us to list our five favorite foods. After careful consideration, here’s what I came up with:

  1. Pizza
  2. Sushi
  3. Avocados
  4. Ice Cream
  5. Cool Ranch Doritos

I’m so healthy, I know.  Out of all of my favorite foods, pizza is definitely at the top of the list for me. I swear I could eat it every day.

This grain-free paleo pizza crust uses almond meal and arrowroot in place of traditional flour. You'll never miss the wheat!

I love pizza. I have always loved pizza. It is one of my top comfort foods, right up there with ice cream and sushi. I live very close to one of my favorite regional pizza chains (I’ve been their loyal customer since childhood) but over the past several years I’ve grown very fond of homemade pizza. I still love going out from time to time but let’s face it, homemade pizza is a lot less greasy. When I decided to cut back on grains this year, pizza clearly wasn’t something I was considering. Once I realized the stupidly obvious- that cutting back on grains would mean cutting back on one of my favorite meals, I knew I had to take action. Some things are sacred. What is the point of existence without being able to enjoy a hot cheesy slice of pizza?  [Read more...]

Use these Cheddar Brioche Buns for grilled cheese sandwiches or with cheeseburgers! They're also amazing dunked in stews or soups.

Brioche is one of my favorite yeasted breads. I often buy it pre-made to use for french toast or bread pudding, but making it from scratch is something that I recommend every home baker try at least once. Yes, it’s a bit time consuming but it’s really not complicated. And if you love bread, I promise you there is nothing quite like hot brioche, fresh out of the oven.  [Read more...]

This Gnocchi with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Pancetta and Roquefort Cheese is so incredibly savory and flavorful you won't be able to put down the fork!

In my mid-20s, before culinary school, I was fairly unadventurous in the kitchen. Once I came up with a good recipe I would make it over and over again until I was sick of it. One of my favorite dinners was a pasta dish made from olive oil, basil, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts and parmesan. Kind of a deconstructed pesto. It was delicious. I don’t find myself making it very often these days but it did serve as the inspiration for this gnocchi recipe.  [Read more...]

Spaghetti with Parmesan, Pine Nuts and Brown Butter Sauce - a simple, comforting dinner.

It is very difficult going through life as a space cadet. I am constantly emailing myself reminders because I know most thoughts won’t stay in my head for more than a moment. I’m the only person I know who can repeat the two thing I need from downstairs, out loud, all the way down the stairs and still forget one of the things.  [Read more...]
