Mmmmm. Pizza. Ok, ok… I work in a pizza place so it is not usually my first go to when making dinner. But I was at the grocery store and came across this dough:
Well, this was not too much of a success. I kind of burnt it. Crazy thing is I only cooked it for 1/2 the time it said… I’ll have to watch it more closely next time. If anyone has any tips I am happy to hear them…
Here was my process…
Mix oats, walnuts, cinnamon, clove and pumpkin seeds:
Mix cranberries and bananas together:
Well, spring is here and so are my allergies! I never really had allergies until I moved to Colorado. Since I have moved here I have had to take some form of medicine to feel like a normal human being.
I have always heard that consuming local honey can help relieve allergy woes, so there was no better week than this week to buy some!
I went to Vitamin Cottage to get some and was not disappointed. I found a honey from Greeley, Colorado from Rice Family Honey.
They have been open since 1924. After listening to the audio book from my last thing on my list, I have really enjoyed looking more into the history of Colorado and historic things. So this seemed like a perfect honey to buy.
I remember when I was little I used to make cookies from scratch all the time! I used to love it and often my moms friends would ask me to make them some too! I was the neighborhood baker.
It has been a while since I made cookies and I have to say it was quite reminiscful. Although I forgot that I used to make them in Florida and today (obviously) I made them in Denver… I forgot to change the recipe for altitude so they came out pretty flat, but they still taste delicious so that’s all that matters.
So I searched Pinterest and it did not take very long to find a recipe that sounded intriguing.
Everyone should try this recipe for Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken from Carlsbad Cravings website.
It was pretty sweet for me, so I added a good amount of extra sambal, Asian chili, and I absolutely loved it.
Here’s my photo steps but check out the recipe link above for the full ingredients, step by step instructions, and all the details. I’m no professional chef but I think mine turned out pretty well. Also, I bought Archer Farms Basmati Rice for the first time. It comes in a bag you can throw in the microwave for just two minutes and it was delicious!
Mmmmmm. Cheese. 😂🧀
The fine cheese selection at the market is hard to walk away from without spending $100. There are so many good choices.
I had most of them before so it was a pretty slim selection of picking something new.
I chose Blue Stilton which is a blue cheese specifically imported from England. It is VERY blue and has a super distinct harshness to it. I liked it but definitely could not eat a lot of it. I am thinking I will make a walnut salad with it.
