We love making homemade pizza. Josh is the dough master and I take care of the sauce and toppings. I usually choose a veggie loaded pizza while Josh goes for a sausage or pepperoni pizza . This time I decided to really switch up the toppings.
We love making homemade pizza . Josh always makes the pizza dough, while I make the sauce. Well, last week I was craving pizza for lunch, big time! I was tempted to call my “dough boy” home from work so he could whip up some pizza dough, but I decided I should probably let him work:) I was busy with Caleb and didn’t have time to make pizza dough from scratch, so I took the easy route and used pita bread to create an Avocado Pita Pizza with Cilantro Sauce. The pita bread made a great pizza crust.

Leave it to Sunset Magazine to come up with a variety of delicious marinades to suit any purpose and serve them up in one cool issue (August 2010). Recently I made the two "Perfect for Seafood" marinades - Lemongrass, Chile and Coconut Milk Shrimp and Chile Ginger Shrimp . Both were fantastic, so this time I decided to try the honey lime marinade from the "Perfect for Chicken" section and I was very pleased with the outcome. It doesn't get any easier than this - 5 simple ingredients (not including the salt and pepper), marinade overnight, and throw on the grill.
Do you stand in front of your closet thinking I have nothing to wear even though its full of clothes? I do this all.the.time. It drives my husband crazy because my closet seems like clothes are exploding from it half the time and my dresser drawers are way too full when all the laundry is clean. Its frustrating to him, but he does the same thing when he looks through the kitchen, he always says there is nothing to eat. Its true that I keep very few packaged foods on hand these days; there is usually a box of crackers and some granola bars for lunches but other than that, its pretty much pantry staples.
Although we are not huge meat eaters, we sometimes eat an occasional pork chop. We are Bulgarians, after all, and pork is by far the most popular meat in our country, especially during winter months. It’s incredible how many different recipes for pork exist – quick and easy, slowly cooked and elaborate, and also from virtually any type of cut. It’s freezing outside, and we can’t even think of barbeque, but this method is almost as easy. In fact we find it to be one of the best ways to cook boneless pork chops.
