Four-Cheese Pizza

4-cheese pizza

This pizza also came from the Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook that we received as a wedding gift. [click here to buy] The cheese combination is very unique and scrumptious. All you need to do is prepare your favorite pizza dough, which can be homemade or store bought. I know you can buy the fresh pizza dough from Whole Foods or maybe even …

So there’s this restaurant, well, tea room here in Tulsa called Dragonmoon Tea Room. It’s a great place to host baby showers or bridal luncheons, and it is an especially great place to get lunch! I went the other day with my friend Megan and she ordered this killer sandwich that I decided I needed to attempt to recreate at home. I couldn’t stop thinking …

I saw these breakfast bars on pinterest and knew I had to make them immediately. They combine your basic breakfast foods into one delicious and easy casserole… biscuits? check. eggs? check. bacon & cheese? check. check. I chose a birthday breakfast at work to test the recipe and it was very popular. It might be the easiest breakfast casserole in existence, which makes it perfect for …

I couldn’t resist these roll-ups on the 4th of July because of their name, Philly Firecrackers. I mean, how perfect is that for the 4th celebration? These are perfect year-round though as they are quick, easy and pack a punch with the tangy horseradish sauce. 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup sour cream 1 green onion, chopped 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish 8 (12-inch) flour …

not your potluck’s pasta salad

I love pasta salad. It’s basically a hodge-podge of anything you have in your fridge or pantry. That’s what I love about this recipe from My Recipes, it’s a unique combination that I would never put together in a “regular” pasta salad. Plus, it doesn’t have any mayo – which I know will make some of you happy! Here’s what you’ll need: 6 ounces uncooked acini …

I bought double the ingredients for the Chicken & Avocado Salad with Lime & Cilantro I made last week. So later in the week, I re-invented the recipe into a chicken melt. It was the best sandwich I’ve had in quite a while. I’m typically not a fan of hot sandwiches (call me crazy) but for some reason the thought of lime, cilantro, and chicken with …

Last week I was on a carbohydrate kick and happened to have some leftover pizza dough in the freezer so I decided to attempt my very first calzone. I started with this recipe from Food Network and altered it based on the reviews and my personal taste. The flavors of this calzone are spot-on… salty, cheesy, meaty, yummy. Unfortunately, my pizza dough was a little …

So in an attempt to shed some last minute poundage, I went low carb for a week or two before the wedding. We all know that carbs are the devil, but bacon? Bacon is our low carb best friend. So I whipped up a quick crustless bacon and spinach quiche. It’s so delicious, you won’t even miss the crust. Promise. Here’s what you’ll need: 3 slices …
