A Quick Monday Dinner

SAMSUNG CSC

If you are anything like me, Mondays are really busy and by the time dinner rolls around I want something really quick and easy. One thing that always seems to be eaten in my house is pizza.

I love pizza, but my favorite is Margherita Pizza. There is just something about the fresh Tomato and Mozzarella…and oh my goodness fresh basil that makes me grin from ear to ear.

So, I can up with my own Margherita Pizza that is to die for. So good!

What I Made for Dinner

The other day I was craving homemade roast….of all things to crave…roast…really?!?! So that night I pulled the roast out of our second freezer and allowed it to thaw out overnight.

Typically, when I make dinner I usually do my own thing…but this particular time I came across Pioneer Womans Perfect Pot Roast Recipe and I knew it was something I had to make.

If you know anything about me, I am a huge Pioneer Woman fan! Everything that I have every made of hers, I absolutely loooooved it!

So, I had a funny feeling that we were going to enjoy her Pot Roast.

These cookies are definitely my go-to cookies to make in the summer, literally for some simple reason….I don’t need to bake them! Plus they are Peanut Butter and Chocolate…need I say more?

I have been making these cookies for Sophia and I in the summer for the last two years that keep resurfacing every year!

Look, I totally get it….. they’re aren’t pretty and probably the most ugliest cookie you’ll ever see, but they totally makeup for it in taste. I promise!

Summer Salad

I enjoy trying new recipes especially for summer, there seem to be more of a variety of fall and winter foods than summer foods.

By the end of May, I am so over the usual hamburger and hot dog ordeal…that even suggesting it for dinner becomes and instant no. Can anyone else relate?

Last week when I was browsing Chip and Joanna’s Magazine Magnolia I found a recipe in there that I had to try with the grilled chicken breasts we were having for dinner.

Luck must have been on my side, because the only item I did not have on had was the corn on the cob. So I ran up the street to Aldi’s and grabbed them.

For about a week Pittsburgh has been more snowy and cold than it has been all winter long. Just a few weeks ago we hit 78 degrees…it was heaven, but I must admit I am really anxious for April. With the cold weather upon us still…..

I thought it would be fun to put a twist to your normal Hot Chocolate and make Unicorn Hot Chocolate. Plus, I knew that Sophia would just love it.

Jo’s Favorite Lemon Pie

When life gives you Lemons make…Jo’s Favorite Lemon Pie! I have been going through a wicked sweet tooth recently that I just can’t get a grasp on. It doesn’t matter how many yoga classes I take or how many times I try to distract myself…nothing and I mean nothing seems to be helping. Until….I came across Jo’s Favorite Lemon Pie.

But let me back up…I have a huge confession and obsession. I am a HUGE Joanna and Chip Gaines fan from HGTV Fixer Upper! My mom and I will watch them for hours. Their style is basically my style, everything they do I love. So when I came across Jo’s Favorite Lemon Pie recipe in their magazine…my inner obsession came out…

And I had to try it!

It is probably the best pie I have ever had. Hands down. I mean it’s rich, packed with flavor and lets say not legging pants wearing friendly…but perfect for a cheat day…or week. Whatever tickles your fancy…I will do a week cheat please!
