We have these free wall calendars at work and every month a recipe is showcased along with a large picture of it. After staring at this recipe/picture of this recipe for the last month I decided to make it. I love the main ingredients in this and figured this would be right up my alley and it sure was. It also took less than 10 minutes to make this from start to finish, which can’t be beat AND you don’t have to cook anything or heat up an oven so it is very heat-wave friendly as well.

We have made pizza before in the oven and on the grill and enjoyed it, but used a store bought dough when doing so. It was a good dough that was made in the store and frozen, so at least it wasn’t a Pillsbury canister but not quite as good as fresh so we took that final part on. Being our first time, we wanted to just go with a Basic Pizza Dough Recipe courtesy of the food network. It was fun and easy to do it all ourselves despite living within close proximity to Aiello’s, the best pizza in the world.

I was going to call this a white lasagna but as you will see there are plenty of ingredients that are not white. Alfredo sauce was involved and I called on a previous recipe (which we featured twice) of ours for that. I won’t say that this was that difficult, but it did take a while which was well worth it because it was “one of the best things I made in a while.” That was an actual quote from Eileen about this great dish and I think she was right!

Oh, Summer… so sad to see it come to an end but luckily the produce from the summer crops are still going strong. We have been growing these lovely little tomatoes all summer and have been thoroughly enjoying them. One of our favorite ways to have them is with fresh basil and penn mac’s fresh mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. So simple, so good. Recently, we received some ‘lemon-basil’ in our CSA and naturally a pesto came to mind.

As a Foodbuzz participant (yeah, over to the right there) we receive promotions in return for trying them out and letting you know about them like the recent Godiva coffee. This summer we received KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade. I wanted to do something different than the cliche buffalo chicken and had some boneless pork chops on hand with fresh blue cheese and a nice summer grill.
We’ve been in Pittsburgh for a whole year now and we have been loving it, especially all the great food! We have created some of our Pittsburgh favorites, such as pierogies and Italian Wedding Soup, both staples of many restaurants here, and here is another dish commonly seen on menus around town- fried zucchini. We had some fresh mozzarella in the fridge and zucchini and I decided to whip this up. It took all of about 15 minutes from start to finish and was delicious!
We have been on a roll with Bon Appetit recipes recently and this is an adaptation of one. They have section where they recreate/figure out recipes from restaurants that readers request. This was an adaptation of their version of Mahi-Mahi with Tomato, Pepper, and Caper Sauce from Cabana in West Palm Beach.
