The Hubby asked for some homemade jam the other day. I asked him what flavor and his response was: “Blueberry! There isn’t enough blueberry stuff in the world.” I had made a fruit reduction for my strawberry-filled rosewater cupcakes in the past, so I figured it probably couldn’t be too much more difficult than that.

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

The hubby and I have taken a liking to a local stir fry place over the course of the past year, but eating out a lot can get expensive pretty quickly. I got a stove-friendly wok from Nana, so I decided that now was as good a time as any to break it out and

One of my favorite drinks (next to rum and Coke or Jägermeister and Dr. Pepper) is hard lemonade. I’ve been drinking MIke’s since I was in college. I’d grab a bottle and take it outside with me whenever I had to work on my bike. Now that I’m older and I have more to do

Last winter, people got really excited about red wine hot chocolate. I thought it sounded kind of dumb, so I let it be. Well, here I am, months later, faced with a chocolate craving and a remaining third of a bottle of merlot. So I said, screw it, let’s try it. I’m going to come

This recipe is brought to you by Mother Necessity. Back in May, I was scrambling to put together a birthday dinner for my hubby after a busy day, and I realized partway through that I hadn’t made him a cake or a pastry or anything. Crap. So, I scrambled to toss something together, and after

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant is kind of a strange fruit. It’s mostly water, and other than providing a reasonable amount of dietary fiber (about 5 grams per cup of eggplant), it really doesn’t have much else to offer on its own. However, its blandness and lack of… everything makes it a great vehicle for sauces, breadings, and other

This past weekend, this Miss became a Missus! To celebrate, I’m bringing you some delicious, way too easy to make, rich chocolate cake — in a mug! Don’t let the idea of eggy, dry mug cakes deter you. This mug cake is rich, moist, and doesn’t use egg! It’s an awesome dessert to make when

Last summer, I made my first batch of homemade ice cream. After the Neapolitan was a success, I tried my hand at huckleberry ice cream, which was also good, though I ran into the issue of huckleberries being a little too expensive to use for the whole recipe (note: if you want to imitate the flavor of

Pizza: The Basics

Pizza: The Basics
Posted in : dinner, easy, food, pizza, recipe, spicy, vegetables on by : Jeanette Rueb
Tags: , , , ,

Pizza is one of those foods that we order out so often, the art of making it at home is often overlooked. It’s not terribly difficult, it’s super customizable, and it is WAY cheaper than ordering delivery (and less greasy). Longtime readers might remember my Greek pizza recipe from… geez, three years ago… but that was
