Spinach and Garlic Alfredo Pizza (With or Without Onions and Anchovies)

Monday, I declared this week to be Pizza Week. Today is the first pizza in the series. All of these pizzas will use the No-Knead Whole-Wheat Semolina Pizza Dough recipe I posted Monday. As much as I love a good, plain old pepperoni and cheese pizza, there is something about pizza that makes me wildly [Read On]

No-Knead Whole-Wheat Semolina Pizza Dough | Make Ahead Mondays

I’m about to do something I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time. I declare this week to be pizza week. I’ve run a handful of pizza recipes (this, this, this and this) but I’ve never gone deep into pizza territory in this space. This -to put it mildly- is nuts. Why? Because I [Read On]

Japanese Salmon over Linguine

There are some dishes that come to define special occasions. We have a few of them… The boys’ birthdays almost inevitably have Sticky Chicky Bones and Pig Tails. Thanksgiving means Cranberry Upside Down Cake and Baked Chocolate Custards. Christmas Eve is our potsticker extravaganza. Easter always brings Bunny Bread. Just as much as we can [Read On]

English Muffin Bread Pizzas

I’ve entered that parenting stage where I am, apparently, running a taxi service for my children. I always thought the whole “Mom’s Taxi” thing was a cliché. It isn’t. Clearly. I mean wow.

Yeah. Like I said, they’re good sports. They [Read On]

Bubble Pizza (Pizza Monkey Bread)

Isn’t there some sort of sporting event coming up this weekend? Some big deal? Football something or other? I’m a little fuzzy on that point, I’m just thinking I’ve heard talk. Anyway, if you happen to be going somewhere or having lots of people over, you might be expected to have some finger food available. [Read On]

One Pot Tex Mex Pasta Toss

Yesterday, I banged the drum for playing with your food and above is my proof of why that is a virtuous kitchen activity. You are looking at a creamy tomato pasta with chorizo, black olives, cilantro, sour cream and candied jalapenos. …And scene. No. It doesn’t really end there, although since we are two days [Read On]

Creamy Tomato and Bacon Linguine

Oh, I know. Thursday is Thanksgiving, but we DO have to eat between now and then, and I’m thinking we all need something simple and satisfying that does, most emphatically, not involve turkey. Add to that the fact that it’s seriously cold (at least where I am) and we need something comforting, too. Simple, satisfying, [Read On]
