Pizza Bread

You heard it right.  Pizza Bread.  Pizza in bread form.  Well, I guess pizza is really a bread in the first place, but instead of being covered with toppings, the toppings are incorporated.  Brainless but genius, you say??!  You’re right! This bread is like a pizza party in your mouth.  Every bite is like the … [Follow your taste buds…]

Perfect Pizza Dough

Buddy the Elf has his sugar food groups.  Therefore, I find it perfectly appropriate to have my own carbohydrate food groups–dairy, bread, sugar, and wine.  After all, ’tis the season for (not so) guilt-free indulging.  I am fairly certain that pizza fits all of those food groups, except for wine, but there’s a quick remedy … [Follow your taste buds…]

Panko Parmesan Crusted Salmon

Downward dog, half moon, warrior 1 or 2 or 3 (or 4 is on the floor), clavicle, ischial tuberosity, piriformis, “23 yogis”, garudasana, ustrasana, vrksasana, mulabanda, vyana vayu, Ganesh, the Trimurti, and more.  That’s been my life for the last month as we are deep in the heart of Yoga Teacher Training.  And when not … [Follow your taste buds…]

Stuffed Parmesan and Artichoke Bread

My last post–Superbowl Lentil Chili–I discussed how important it is for me to bring healthy foods to the game day spread.  Well, this stuffed parmesan and artichoke bread is on the exact opposite side of the healthy spectrum (and will also be making an appearance for our Superbowl party).  Balance, people, balance.  That’s what is … [Follow your taste buds…]

Rosemary and Thyme Biscuits

There is something to be said about a good biscuit.  Perfectly fluffy but dense, buttery but light, and flaky but moist.  So why does everyone smother them with fat-laden gravy or hollandaise sauce, or serve them with a massive hunk of greasy, leathery, and cholesterol-packed red meat?  Sorry about my soapbox moment, but it is … [Follow your taste buds…]

Artichoke, Mushroom, and Parmesan Sourdough Stuffing

Yes, Thanksgiving is over and it probably would have been helpful to post this blog before my favorite food holiday, but I got so consumed with cooking, cleaning, and being thankful for my friends and family that it never happened.  Therefore, you’ll just have to make this stuffing for Christmas. Trust me, this is the … [Follow your taste buds…]

Pretzel Poppers

A few weeks ago, we made these pretzel sticks that were absolutely divine.  They certainly were the best soft pretzels I have ever eaten in my entire life.  We decided that an out-of-this-world combination would be to stuff the already delicious pretzel with jalapeno popper filling.  That’s precisely what I decided to bring for our … [Follow your taste buds…]

Cauliflower and Broccoli “Breadsticks”

Who knew that cauliflower and broccoli could be turned into “breadsticks”?  Sounds like a magic trick.  I suppose this transformation is better–and certainly healthier–than taking a blue box of noodles, adding some powder, and calling it mac and cheese (which I absolutely love, don’t get me wrong). These “breadsticks” truly taste like something straight out … [Follow your taste buds…]
