Just Peachy

by jessica on August 15, 2016

So here we are…that awkward moment when I have not blogged since mid-February and now it’s mid-August and I’m blogging. No real reason for a break. Nothing crazy or catastrophic going on over here. Not even lazy. I’ve been living life, and the blog fell off my own radar.

But I’m back. For now. For at least another year because that’s how long this domain is paid.

I have two favorite foods – tacos and pizza. Any foods put into one of those two formats, have a good chance of ending up on my plate. Recently, everything in my kitchen is becoming pizza. Leftover carnitas? Put it on a pizza. Questionable looking produce? Roast it and put it on a pizza. Slightly bruised peach? Slice it and put it on a pizza. Yes.

Prosciutto + Peach Pizza:

  • Fresh pizza dough, this recipe is my favorite and is always in my freezer
  • Olive oil
  • 2 cloves of roasted garlic
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 6 slices of prosciutto, further sliced or chopped
  • 1 peach, sliced
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic glaze (buy it or make it!)

Cracker thin crust, lots of cheese, tangy balsamic. It’s a winning combo

I cannot say enough good things about The Kitchn’s thin crust recipe. It makes the perfect cracker thin crust and is stupid easy to make. If you like thin crust pizzas, this is the way to go!

Using a pastry brush, brush olive oil on the rolled out pizza dough. Using your fingers, break apart the roasted garlic cloves and spread out over the dough. You could also use the tube of garlic paste in the produce section, but I prefer the flavor of roasted garlic. Next, spread the ricotta cheese over the pizza. Add your toppings – peaches, prosciutto, walnuts, arugula. Sprinkle with mozzarella and blue cheese. Bake on a pizza stone or cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.

Drizzle with balsamic glaze after removing from the oven.

Salted Nutella Brownies

February 22, 2016

When I think about some of the my favorites that my mom made when I was a kid, brownies is absolutely on that list. They were not fancy by any means. Always the Pillsbury box mix brownies and she would dust them with powdered sugar. I still keep Pillsbury mixes in the pantry for when […]

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

I woke up this morning with one thing on my mind – pancakes. Well two things on my mind – not getting out of bed AND pancakes. After spending most of my morning with a book and Gryff, I finally got around to those pancakes. Not just any pancakes – buckwheat pancakes. I didn’t grow […]

Spaghetti Squash Burrito Boats

January 25, 2016

Chipotle is bae. I cannot get enough Chipotle. However, every single time I have it, I am in a food coma for hours. While it isn’t the worst “fast food” out there, I also wouldn’t call it healthy. Obviously, I had to find a solution to this problem and involving spaghetti squash was an added bonus. […]

Nutella Banana Bread

December 28, 2015

Sorry I have been MIA this month. I suppose MIA is an understatement since my last post was on December 1st. Let’s just say I’ve been a little busy making major life decisions which means I’ve been over here stressing out about little things, working out to try and de-stress, and eating a lot of […]
