My Type of Pizza

This week I was on my own for dinner, twice, and do you know what I made myself BOTH nights? A homemade pizza, Nikky Style. What is Nikky style you might ask? Well, that means the pizza has to at least have (lots of) onions, prosciutto, arugula, and absolutely no red-sauce. I made two variations…

Strawberry Rhubarb Cookies

Last year I got a rhubarb plant from a friend, planted it, and forgot about it. Then this year it came back, happy as can be, thriving and taking up so much room with those massive leaves! I am an amateur when it comes to rhubarb. I think the only time I had tried it…

Roasted Peppers & Onion Spread – Dutch Oven

The other day I got an assortment of peppers for free. Anaheim, Banana, & Bell pepper, a spicy and a normal. I went about trying to think of what to do with them, and decided to make a sweet pepper spread, with the use of my new dutch oven. 🙂 With only a few ingredients…

Curried Chicken Noodle Soup

Easy Pad Thai

I realized the other day that I have never made Pad Thai before, at least not the sauce. I have cheated and bought the pre-made stuff, which is so-so, but never actually made the whole meal from scratch. I started to look for a recipe and then remembered, my mom made the best Pad Thai…

Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I am attending a wedding this Thursday, and the dress that I rented for the event is very fitted. I was nervous about that fact, so I decided to give up gluten for two weeks, and all I can say is, thank goodness I am not gluten intolerant. It is so hard to not eat…

Colorado Green Chili

I have been driven mad with trying to find the perfect recipe that compares to the green chili we get here in Colorado. If you have never had it, then you are missing out, I’m obsessed! There are two places in particular that have the very best green chili, and I am trying to copy…

Purple Basil Ravioli

This invention of a recipe has dough made with purple basil, and a filling of steak and peas. I have this purple basil plant growing, and lately it has been looking a little wild, so I was trying to think of a way I could use a large chunk and not make the same ol’…
