Pizza Fingers

I took English muffins and turned them into little pizzas because… well, why not? I love pizza.  Let me count the ways I can eat thee… take out, homemade (aka traditional style crust), homemade with whole wheat crust, naan style, and skillet style (which is the most famous of them all on my blog… by far).  You can really get creative with turning foods into pizzas (or things that resemble pizza ingredients).  Sometimes it’s out of necessity because you’re a college student and all you have is sliced bread, sauce, and string cheese.  Sometimes it’s about the fun to see what you …

I shared this pancake recipe with you about two …

We got over a foot of snow yesterday and it’s very cold out today.  Yup, this means I’m in hibernation mode with thoughts of warmer weather and flowers.  We haven’t had a bad winter (as far as New England winters go) but I find myself constantly dreaming about things that involve being warmer.  Although, being at a beach means I’d have to wear a bathing suit and the thought of that seriously makes me want to work out twice as long tonight. I’m guessing that a full plate of orzo isn’t helping my cause.  But let’s …
