Spinach and Artichoke Fondue

Spinach and Artichoke Fondue

A few months ago I took a girl’s trip to Las Vegas with one of my best friends. She’d never been before so we did just about everything one can do in Las Vegas in just 4 days. We went to the Hoover Dam, went shopping, dancing, did an aerial arts class, saw some shows, way more gambling than I care to admit, and of course – we ate. Oh you better believe we ate. We ate so hard. On {Read More}

Classic Lasagna Recipe

Classic Lasagna Recipe

I’m sharing my favorite Classic Lasagna Recipe with you today!! I love lasagna, and this easy recipe is prepared with the oven ready noodles so it’s quick to throw together. I like to bulk up my lasagna with spinach and ground sausage; the spicy sausage to be exact. Feel free to use a more mild sausage, or no sausage at all if you prefer. I keep the sausage and spinach a separate layer than the sauce so it’s easy to {Read More}

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip

————————————————————— This Spinach Artichoke Dip is cheesy, delicious, super easy to throw together and perfect for any gathering.  Let me tell you a little bit about the town I’m living in right now… It’s small… really, REALLY small. You see, I was born in Los Angeles, grew up in Phoenix, and went to college in Houston. Those three cities right there are probably in the top 5 largest cities in the United States. Now, I’m putzing around a town (village??) {Read More}

Salami Pinwheels

It’s that time of year when we are busy shopping for school supplies, new shoes, and the coolest new shirts and shorts for our little scholars. School time! I’m not sure I’m ready to let go of summer yet. One thing that I do get excited about is packing school lunches…. Ok, that’s a lie. It can get really monotonous packing the same ol’ pb&j day after day, after day. My kids get bored with it too. Last year I {Read More}

Little buds of green grass are finally starting to peek through the barren ground and pretty soon fields of gorgeous flowers will be in full bloom. The sun is shining longer and longer each day, producing tiny beams of warmth on our faces as we finally emerge from what seemed like the longest winter ever.

Spinach and Artichoke Flat Bread Pizza

Spinach & Artichoke

Sometimes inspiration for my recipes come in the most random of ways. Take this Flat Bread Pizza for instance; I was eating a Lean Cuisine for lunch one day {don’t judge, they are delicious}, it was a spinach and artichoke dip with a slice of pita bread.  Instead of just dipping the pita bread into the spinach and artichoke dip, I covered the pita bread with the dip, and the spinach and artichoke pizza was born. Of course I needed to {Read More}

White Pita Pizza

White Pita Pizza

Have you ever been to California Pizza Kitchen and ordered their White Pizza? It has a creamy white base then topped with spinach, and all sorts of yummy cheeses. It. Is. Epic. And then one day I wanted some of that epic goodness for lunch, but didn’t want to have to drive all the way there, so I created my own. Instead of using pizza dough, I put all the elements of the White Pizza on some pita bread. Yes {Read More}

It became on of my favorites because I found out that it was one of the healthiest Greek foods you could eat, and it still tastes incredible. I love {Read More}
