Chicken Ranch Pizza

Until now, we hadn’t tried any unique pizza recipes. However, we remedied that this weekend by trying chicken ranch pizza! We are Catholic, so every year we give something up for Lent. This year, we are challenging ourselves by giving up meat. Since Lent starts Wednesday, we only have a few more days to eat…

Pesto Focaccia

Focaccia is something we have always had mixed feelings about. A lot of the focaccia we have had is kind of salty and crispy, almost like a cracker but thicker and more chewy (and more often then not, bland or way too herby). But then again, we had never had it homemade before, and 95%…

Guacamole

Updated to add a new photo on 3.9.13 We are both convinced that there are few things better than really delicious guacamole. It makes a great lunch, snack, or dinner. Our mom likes to buy the guacamole from Trader Joe’s, and we like it too, but homemade is way better. We’ve made this a couple…

White Pizza

There’s a moderately funny reason that in this picture is only one sad, small slice of white pizza all by itself. After making a lot of pizza the other night, we made sure to put aside half a pizza to photograph for the blog. We decided to let it sit on the counter for twenty…

Homemade Pizza

Now that we finally got a pizza stone-something we’ve wanted for a while- we obviously had to make pizza on it, and so we did it as soon as possible. We were really, really happy with our first homemade pizza attempt involving a pizza stone! We’ve made homemade pizzas before but (with the exception of…

Spinach Artichoke Grilled Cheese

Growing up, grilled cheese was never one of our favorite things. Plain cheese (usually American cheese) and bread was not usually an option that we picked. Now that we’re older, of course, we have realized that there’s a whole word of flavorful and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches that don’t involve processed cheese product and nothing…

Roasted Chicken Wraps with Black Bean Salsa and Guacamole

After having Halloween last week and way more candy around than usual, we were ready for something healthy and light! This dinner fit the bill quite nicely. The flavors from the black bean salsa perfectly accompany the guacamole. Bonus, they say the more colorful a meal is, the healthier, and this wrap has plenty of…

Hummus and Whole Wheat Pita Bread

If you are used to eating hummus from a supermarket, and have never had the homemade variety, you are truly missing out! Homemade hummus has a much fresher taste and is highly adaptable. The best part is that it can be made in less then 15 minutes, which is probably less then the time it…

Grandma Pizza

We don’t know who Grandma is, nor did we invent the name of this pizza, but whoever she is, she should be proud of this pizza! It’s wonderful, and it proves you don’t absolutely need a pizza stone to make good pizza at home (that being said, we still want a pizza stone and for…

Asparagus Bacon Hash

Often times potato hashes or pan-fried potatoes are bland chunks of potato that are undercooked and dull. However, this version is a real improvement! The potatoes are cut pretty small so they cook fast and are filled with flavor. It’s a relatively simple dish, too; only asparagus, bacon, onion, and potatoes. It made an excellent…
