In addition to yummy sticky buns, my mom also made my favorite breakfast: bagels with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and capers. She also added thinly sliced shallots, tomato and arugula. So freaking good!
This past Friday was a big day for me so I decided to celebrate with pizza, wine, and friends. I bought some pre-made pizza dough from Trader Joe’s (but dough is super easy to make – just didn’t have yeast) and used what I had in the fridge to make a delicious mushroom, arugula pizza with truffle oil. I had fun showing my friend Monica how to stretch out the pizza dough. I also made a pepperoni and mushroom pizza for the meat-eaters. Fun night with friends!
Another easy-peasy recipe. I always like to pound out my organic chicken breast before I put it on the grill – I think it cooks faster and more evenly that way. I don’t have a meat-pounder-thingy so I just use a heavy sauce pan and it works like a charm. Olive oil, salt, pepper and Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute and that’s it on the chicken. For the salad, it was a simple mix of spinach, arugula, shaved carrot, cucumber, and peas. The salad was dressed simply with olive oil, sesame oil, lemon, salt and pepper. Simple, light and delicious.
