Piggy Pizza

Celebrate National Sausage Pizza Day

Posted on October 12, 2016
So it was National Sausage Pizza on October 11th. Not a big deal. Just another day dedicated to pizza. HA! I know, I’m funny. There is nothing better than pizza. Okay not true. Homemade pizza with garlic and cheese and sausage and more sausage with additional cheese, THAT is better! Piggy Pizza is my take on the classic meat pizza that’s been taken up a few notches.

Five Cheese Pizza

With Stuffed Crust

Posted on September 08, 2016
Five Cheese Pizza With Stuffed Crust is a heavenly delight that was perfect for celebrating National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5th. Imagine a perfectly baked crust, slathered in garlic butter, and stuffed with stringy mozzarella. Top that with a delicious tomato sauce, followed by mountains of cheddar, Monterey jack, and Havarti cheese. Medallions of fresh mozzarella grace the surface of this cheese mountain, while fresh garlic and parsley falls like snow. Finally, after baking to a bubbly perfection, this masterpiece of cheese and dough is ready for the finishing touch of perfectly fresh parmesan cheese.

Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Potato salad with crunch

Posted on August 05, 2016

You know, some of my best recipes come from somehow messing up. Getting the wrong ingredient, not having all of the ingredients, or some other such mishap. That’s how Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad came about. I realized that I only had baking potatoes when my husband had a hankering for potato salad one evening. I figured everything would be alright, so I proceeded as normal. I peeled, sliced, and boiled, but I wound up overcooking the potatoes. To save things, I decided to make them crispy potatoes. After that decision, I wound up undercooking the eggs too! This was fine with me, but definitely not in accordance with the way you make potato salad. As I see these ingredients coming together I decided to roll with it. What’s better with eggs than bacon? I was also using baking potatoes, so under all that crunchy outside was a light and fluffy inside, another perfect place to put bacon. When all was said and done, it was like eating forkfuls of baked potato and breakfast wrapped into one, delicious, summery, side dish. It was amazing.

Hassleback Style Garlic Bread

Hassleback Style Garlic Bread

On COBS Bread Sunflower Flax Sourdough

Posted on July 27, 2016
There is nothing better than a loaf of fresh bread. Well…. Okay garlic bread made from a loaf of fresh bread could tie for the top spot of nothing-better-ness. That’s why I made Hassleback Style Garlic Bread On COBS Bread Sunflower Flax Sourdough. The bread was super fresh and smelled soooo good! It was all I could do not to go all “my precious” on it. I did wind up sharing the bread with other people at dinner, much to my chagrin. Though, they did enjoy it, so I guess that makes up for having to share.

Gourmet Steak Pizza

Gourmet Steak Pizza

on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia

Posted on June 15, 2016
If you’re creative enough just about anything can become pizza. Gourmet Steak Pizza on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia proves that. I used very fresh ingredients for this recipe, and you can taste the difference. The tomatoes served as the sauce instead of using a traditional tomato sauce. I did this because I didn’t want to top the cheesy goodness of the fresh herbed focaccia with anything that would mask its delicious flavor. Instead, I enhanced the delicate herb and cheese flavor by adding succulent steak slices and red onion.

Horseradish Potato Salad

Horseradish Potato Salad

Perfect potato salad with a kick

Posted on May 10, 2016
Horseradish Potato Salad is the perfect creamy potato salad with one heck of a kick. Craving potato salad one evening, I found that I didn't have all of the proper ingredients for traditional potato salad. I substituted cabbage for celery, but was running out of mayonnaise. Since I had some horseradish mayonnaise kicking about, I thought “why not?”. Turns out that it was the right decision indeed. You have to be careful when adding horseradish to things. It will clear your sinuses. If you love hot stuff, kick things up a notch with extra horseradish. Pair this side dish with sweet and sticky ribs or wings, and you will have the quintessential barbecue meal. Perfect for #BarbecueMonth.
