A Thin Crust Potato Pizza with Thyme is my new favorite obsession.  I enjoyed a variation of this pizza at a local restaurant and have been wanting to recreate it at home ever since.  I must say, mine tastes just as good!  The base is a homemade pizza dough that is topped with shredded cheese, thinly sliced (almost paper thin) potatoes and onions, and fresh thyme.  It’s easy to make, flavorful, and delicious. I used my recipe for Thin Crust Pizza Dough for the crust.  If you have a different crust recipe you prefer, go ahead and use it, but this recipe is simple to prepare and doesn’t require any proofing so you can make this recipe on a whim and don’t have to worry about added time for the dough to rise.  Easy weeknight meal?  I think so. The recipe for the Thin Crust Potato Pizza with Thyme can be found here.  It does include instructions for … Continue reading

Gruyere & Onion Flatbread is a wonderful recipe for a quick weeknight meal.  It’s light and will leave you feeling satisfied without being overly full, and it has great flavor!  It’s a little salty but has this rich and nutty flavor from the gruyere cheese and a hint of tang from the red onion.  The Lavash flatbread makes the perfect pizza crust.  If you aren’t familiar with Lavash, it’s a flatbread that is low in sodium, low in cholesterol, and is very thin (less doughy).  I think Lavash is perfect because it is paper thin and get a nice, crispy bottom, so each bite is crunchy. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  This recipe makes 2 flatbreads so go ahead and cut the ingredients in half if you only want to make one. Place one piece of Lavash on each baking … Continue reading

A simple Ham & Gruyere Quiche is sure to please your taste buds so look no further for a quick and easy (yet delicious) breakfast that is perfect for a weekday morning or weekend brunch! If you are unfamiliar with gruyere cheese, it’s a traditional Swiss cheese that is semi-hard and has a rich, creamy, salty, and nutty flavor.  It works well as a substitute for Swiss cheese in recipes but also tastes great on its own with some crackers or bread.  In this quiche recipe, the gruyere cheese pairs well with the tender and salty ham and the soft and creamy eggs. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F. Next prepare the pie crust.  If you are using frozen pie crust, make sure it has time to fully thaw before you start.  If you are using refrigerated pie crust, let it sit on the counter … Continue reading

I recently acquired a spaetzle maker and thought I would play around with creating a fun and delicious recipe.  I bought the spaetzle maker without ever having spaetzle before but thought it looked like a neat kitchen tool to try and after researching recipes, thought it wouldn’t be too hard to make. Spaetzle is a type of pasta made with eggs and flour and it’s typically served as a side dish.  I wanted to make mine into more of a meal, but you could easily half the recipe or tweak some of the ingredients to enjoy it as a side dish.  It’s very popular in German cuisine so keep this in your back pocket when Oktoberfest comes around and you need a unique dish to celebrate with 😊 My recipe is for Bacon & Onion Spaetzle.  The spaetzle is homemade and perfectly tender.  When you pair it with onions, cheese, and bacon, it becomes quite the … Continue reading

Halloween is fast approaching. For some, Halloween is a lifestyle and obsession, for others, it’s a day to be someone or something else.  I personally love decorating the house, buying candy to pass out to trick-or-treaters, dressing up the dog…. but mostly, I love the food!  I like to take a traditional dish and “dress it up” for Halloween.  For example, a pepperoni pizza might have the pepperoni in the shape of a jack-o-lantern.  You get the picture 🙂   This year, I have quite the spread.  It’s going to be one big Halloween celebration at our house, starting with breakfast, and ending with dinner.  Here’s what’s on the menu: Eyeball Donuts Spider Web Donuts Candy “Charcuterie” Board Eyeball Asparagus and Gruyere Tart Spider Web Loaded Potatoes Festival Feetloaf Mini Skeleton Cheesecakes   Halloween is full of candy and treats so why not start the day with something sugary?  Eyeball … Continue reading
