Summer Peach and Balsamic Pizza. To me, this is pizza.

Summer Peach and Balsamic Pizza

To Taylor, it’s flatbread. Fancy fruit-topped flatbread. Then again, I think anything without tomato sauce or pepperoni is flatbread in Taylor’s mind. But whatever you decide to call it, it’s delicious. The sweetness of the peach, the richness of the cheese, with bright and tart accents of basil and balsamic vinegar… yup. If you happened to have, say, 50 year old balsamic vinegar handy, it would be pretty spectacular. Summer Peach and Balsamic Pizza Ingredients:1 batch pizza dough (use your favorite recipe, or use mine here) 1 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons olive oil 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced or grated 2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled 4 peaches, pitted and thinly sliced 1/2 cup coarsely chopped basil Directions:To prepare the balsamic reduction, pour balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan, bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Italian Lasagna (with meat)

I wish that I could take credit for putting it together, but that would be a lie. many years ago I had followed the recipe on the back of the Creamette lasagna box and was sold. However, each time I wanted to make it, I just looked on the back of the box, always throwing the one away before it. Well one day I was in the grocery store picking up the noodles. I looked on the back of the box (I always bought the groceries I needed from the recipe as well) and it had VEGETABLE lasagna on the back. WHAT?! So I hoped and prayed that I still had a box in the cabinet. This is the best lasagna recipe ever. :) Italian Lasagna This recipe is now available for download on Kindle or you can get 6 recipes (5 baked pasta recipes and my favorite regular pasta recipe of all time as a bonus) in my new ebook series, Bite Size Ebooks.

It's no surprise then that he comes home hungry at only 5 p.m. For those days especially, I have a list of go-to meals that can be whipped up in no time. And while P's sweet enough to try almost anything I cook, I reserve this list for only the dishes he gets excited about. Chief among them is this fabulous spaghetti alla vodka. P's not much of a foodie. I'd actually seen many versions of this dish long before, yet was always scared off by their copious use of heavy cream. Do you also have a go-to list of quick, delicious meals for those really hectic days?
