Zucchinis…you either love or hate them…or rather, you love them but then hate them because you have so many at the end of the gardening season that you can’t possibly fathom eating another one of those massive green squashes.
Yeah that sounds about right.

Continuing on with the pizza and pesto of the previous posts, here is a pizza stacked with some awesome flavours! Delicious fresh pesto, juicy mushrooms, savoury red onion, finished off with the smokey flavour of creamy smoked gouda! A pizza that not only looks great, but tastes awesome too!

For whatever reason, this week just felt like a pizza week, but truth-be-told, every week could be pizza week because that stuff is freakin’ amazing! Especially with this ridiculously easy pizza dough recipe. It literally takes about 5 minutes to make (maybe less).
For this pizza I decided to keep it simple and go with a classic margherita style pizza with tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, topped off with a sprinkle of salt! So simple, so good!

This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes, where I just toss a bunch of ingredients on something until i’m satisfied! Those are the best kind of recipes anyways, right?
Now you may have noticed this isn’t actually a pizza, more a faux-pizza, using delicious toppings you might find on a pizza but rather than pizza dough, I use a portobello mushroom! Low-carb and delicious, not that I particularly care about low-carb, but I DO care about delicious!

Tomorrow (or I guess today once this post is published), I will be making my way to New York for the first time, where I will most certainly be enjoying a slice of pizza or two! In the spirit of New York and pizza, I felt this recipe that has been hanging out in my blog archives for quite some time needed to be shared!
This awesome pizza uses Jim Lahey’s amazing “no-knead” pizza dough, making it ridiculously easy to make! You basically just put everything in a bowl the night before, and voila, the next day it has become an amazing pizza dough! Now that’s my kind of recipe! Of course, I had to add a little bit extra to it, because following a recipe to the tee is never as much fun!

Now I know some of you guys(/girls) will disagree with me here, but often times I feel the need to expand my cooking/blogging repertoire by focusing on more non-sandwich dishes. Of course the pull of the almighty sandwich is a strong one, and soon enough, I find myself relapsing with yet another grilled cheese recipe on my hands. Fortunately, my Grilled Cheese support group (a.k.a our faithful readers!), make me realize there is no shame in creating one more grilled cheese!

I’ve been feeling guilty lately.
Guilty because it has been A LOOONG time since i’ve gone to the gym (which I used to do regularly), and guilty because my blogging output has been pitiful the last couple months.
With big intentions to go to the gym today, I got home from work to find this delicious looking focaccia bread on my counter. This is where my resolutions fail me.
Food blogger guilt takes over.

We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to create a unique and tasty using some of their fresh frozen vegetable mixes. Bob & I decided that creating a veggie packed BBQ pizza would be the best option! Now here is something cool about Cookin’ Greens which I really appreciate: all their frozen veggies (chopped kale, chopped spinach, chopped rapini, Designer Mix and the Athlete’s Mix) are frozen within six hours after being freshly farm picked, then are double washed, double blanched, chopped and flash frozen to seal in the maximum amount of nutrition and flavour. Because of Cookin’ Greens intense process, you can find these frozen veggies in the organic isle. But I’m hungry, so let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading
