Breakfast Pizza (Version 2)

After making breakfast pizza before, I didn’t make it again for awhile. Until now. I had been super happy with my latest pizza dough and I found a recipe to make breakfast pizza a different way. So, I decided to try to combine the two. I made the dough one night and then woke up in the middle of the night (thanks, Chiplet) to find out the power was out in the house. In fact, most of our region was without power from a wind storm. So, I was left with dough that I couldn’t cook since our generator was not quite strong enough to risk using the oven. So, I contacted the pizza dough recipe creator on Twitter and he actually gave me the idea to try grilling the pizza. It was dry and not too cold out so I decided to give it a go. And of course it started raining as soon as I started grilling. And then it was so dark out that I couldn’t quite tell what I was doing. So, the first pizza was just so-so. Then a few days later I made a second pizza with the remaining dough and it actually turned out much better with the oven, so maybe a regular pizza would be fine on the grill but not this version? Who knows. Either way, this one was great.

As for our power?

Simple Oatmeal Bites (Allergy Friendly)

I feel like I do so much cooking and baking now since the Chiplet was born. Especially this time of year…I have his birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and regular cooking. On top of that, the Chiplet can’t always eat the same stuff we do so I have to make extra meals. Sometimes it is because he is still growing his teeth and sometimes because of his allergies. So, when I see recipes I can adapt for him that are easy, I take advantage.

Dahlia Bakery Baking

Today I wanted to share a few recipes I made when my dad and M came to visit last month. I asked my dad for some ideas to bake since I wanted to make two treats to take care of two months of desserts that I make him (I usually ship them but fresh is always best). He picked muffins and scones, so I made some muffins for while they were here and made scones to take home (we ended up freezing some of each to take home). The biscuits I made were for their first dinner here. They were coming straight from the airport at rush hour/dinner time, so I wanted food ready for them. I made sous vide salmon, broccoli, and biscuits.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Lots of Baking

I haven’t been making as many new savory dishes recently, but have been making new baking recipes to try out. After making the World Peace cookies that I just shared, I made other cookie recipes, including this bar you see below.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Strawberries and Cakes

I know…it isn’t strawberry season, but I still wanted to share these. I used a recipe from Smitten Kitchen and also a recipe from a cookbook. But to be honest, I can’t tell them apart. I’m not positive which recipe came from which place. I think the ones directly below were from a cookbook and the circle ones were from Smitten Kitchen. I think.

German Pancake

Once again I am bringing a breakfast food we had for dinner…because that is what we often do around here. I’ve gotten around to making more of them for brunch on the weekend, but sometimes it is easier for dinner when I can be louder while cooking (for lunch, the Chiplet is often napping until right before we eat, so I wouldn’t be able to do things like use a blender/etc. This recipe doesn’t look like much, but it was tasty and enjoyed by all of us.

Breakfast Puff Pastry Packets

Today is a simple recipe that was inspired by some puff pastry recipes I found. I ended up doing my own using some Trader Joe’s dough I had stashed away. If you haven’t tried their puff pastry dough, you should. It’s only available around December, as far as I know, and not only is it a great price but it tastes really good because it is all butter like the DuFour kind. But for whatever reason, I like this one better and have had better luck with it. I didn’t realize it was a limited edition kind of product the first year, so the second year I stocked up!
