Cheeseburger Lasagna Rolls

Everyone has to play 'Pantry Roulette' with dinner every now and then. Whether it's a budget thing, an expiration date thing, or a grocery shopping thing. This recipe was born from the last. We needed something for dinner, but I would not be able to go grocery shopping for a few more days. I didn't… Continue reading Cheeseburger Lasagna Rolls

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Guys, I had pizza on the menu for tonight before even realizing it was National Pizza Day!

Tonight I’m making a buffalo chicken pizza on this homemade pizza dough.

I’m definitely not a pizza dough novice anymore. It might be time to do an updated pizza post soon! Until then, use this recipe to make your own delicious pizza. 🙂

I experienced some firsts with this recipe: first time using the dough hook on my KitchenAid mixer, first time ever using yeast, & first time using my new pizza & pastry roller!

My friend Beth has pizza every Friday. I love her life! She almost always makes it from scratch, & after enjoying some of her awesome pizzas myself, I asked for the recipe.

She shared that it’s from one of her favorite cookbooks: Brown Eggs and Jam Jars.

This dough was really easy to make, even for a yeast novice like me. I halved the original – if I messed this up I didn’t want to waste like 5 cups of flour! – & used ‘regular’ flours instead of bread flour. The results were wonderful. The dough calls for honey, but it is not an overly sweet crust, so don’t omit it.

I had to Google how yeast is supposed to…

Nursing Mommy’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

Cupcake is 2+ months old & growing like a weed! It's very satisfying to look at her double chin & chunky legs & know that I did that. Thankfully breastfeeding is going very well with little intervention from me, but every now & then I'll drink some Mother's Milk tea or malta to 'help' my… Continue reading Nursing Mommy’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

Burnt Chicken (honey Italian chicken tenders)

In college my friend, Frank, & I used to make dinner together all the time. He made these delicious chicken tenders one night & I have been hooked ever since. The recipe is incredibly simple - just a few ingredients that marinate into the chicken & then caramelize beautifully. Frank got the recipe from this website,… Continue reading Burnt Chicken (honey Italian chicken tenders)

Grilled Balsamic Skirt Steak 2-Ways, Part 1

My husband loves to grill. We hadn't even moved into our house yet when he was already planning all these barbecues & football parties he wanted to throw. I'm totally on board. My dad was sweet enough to surprise us with a grill as a house warming present. We came home from church one day… Continue reading Grilled Balsamic Skirt Steak 2-Ways, Part 1

Busy Nights & Shepherd’s Pie

Life is busy. Like, really busy. Time is flying by. One of the reasons that time seems even more fleeting for me lately is the fact that I don’t like to consider my job as part of my life. When you factor everything in, I am away from home because of work for 50+ hours a… Continue reading Busy Nights & Shepherd’s Pie
