Gimme Pizza… P-I-Z-Z-A

Yes, that is an Olsen twins reference. Did anyone else grow up wanting to be an Olsen twin? I know it wasn’t just me. Every time I make pizza from scratch, I can’t help but think of that song… and sing it a little, maybe.

The pizza dough takes a little time to rise, but other than that it is a simple straightforward recipe.

Taco Tuesday!

Its taco Tuesday, so I thought I would share my go-to taco spice mix. You can put this on chicken, fish, beef, pork,  veggies… Anything your  little heart stomach desires.

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

As a kid, I hated mushrooms. Sure, it was a texture thing, but they also just looked gross to me. They weren’t a pretty colorful veggie like carrots or bell peppers. They were dull and dirt covered. Anyway, mushrooms and me were never pals until switched to a vegan diet my Freshman year of college. I was hit quite quickly with the realization that the majority of vegan menu options had mushrooms…bummer. Lots of mushroom sandwiches and pastas. So, it was then that I decided to give mushrooms another chance. The verdict: I am so happy that I did because now I love ’em! Moral of the story: some things/ people deserve a second chance.

Banana Walnut Muffins

The secret ingredient in these decadent tasting muffins is (drum roll please) ground flaxseed! The ground flaxseed acts as a binder while adding heart healthy Omega-3s. Make sure to get ground flaxseed versus whole flaxseed for this recipe because you want it to mix into the batter and thicken it. I’m also not a huge fan of seeds in my food… just a personal preference.
