Pork Spring Roll Bowl – everything you love about spring rolls in a bowl! Rice noodles in a spicy peanut sauce, with thinly sliced pork, cucumber, carrots, avocado, fresh herbs, and chopped peanuts on top!

Pork Spring Roll Bowl - everything you love about spring rolls in a bowl! Rice noodles in a spicy peanut sauce, with thinly sliced pork, cucumber, carrots, avocado, fresh herbs, and chopped peanuts on top!

Before we moved, I had this routine when my kids were with their dad for the weekend. And by routine, I mean I didn’t leave my house. I would marathon whatever season of American Horror Story fit my mood and I’d order pho every day the kids were gone. And my favorite pho place back in our old city had the best pork spring rolls. It was super thinly sliced, super flavorful pork rolled up with all the veggies and served with a peanut dipped sauce.

And now I live 45 minutes from them and they won’t bring me spring rolls.

So I’ve started making my own pork spring rolls and when I’m too lazy to actually roll them, I’ll do this Pork Spring Roll Bowl.

It’s everything I love about those spring rolls: rice noodles tossed with a light and spicy peanut sauce, thinly sliced carrots and cucumber, fresh cilantro and mint, chopped peanuts, and the pork, of course.

Bacon Alfredo Pizza – homemade pizza recipe with easy alfredo sauce, crispy bacon, spinach, and mozzarella! 

We’re not going to talk about this crust.

Okay, fine, we’ll talk about it.

So I didn’t use my regular crust recipe because it calls for, like, 5 cups of flour and this was Spring Break and I’m not about to take all my kids to the grocery store for flour. So I used a recipe that sounded delicious – I mean, honey wheat pizza crust? That only needs 2 3/4 cups of flour?

Sold.

Mini Hawaiian Calzones - easy homemade calzones filled with ham, pineapple, red onion, and mozzarella cheese! The perfect way to switch up pizza night!

Heeeey guys, happy Sunday!

How was the week? I told you guys all week that I’ve basically locked myself in my house for the last 7 days to just catch up on work. And also because it’s seriously been raining for a week now. It finally stopped this afternoon and it’s sunny and beautiful and I’m writing this is my bright blue lawn chair that I’ve set up in the driveway because that’s where the sun is brightest.

Sorry neighbors.

Switched up the pizza thing this week with some mini calzones. I actually made these twice this week because the first time it started monsooning as soon as I put them in the oven and the pictures were garbage.

Strangely, no one complained about calzones twice this week.

Weird how calzones twice a week is fine but kale salad twice is a no go.

Pesto Sausage Pizza with Mushrooms and Olives - sausage, mushrooms, and olives on top of a creamy pesto sauce, topped with monterey jack cheese!

You guys.

I didn’t think this post was going to happen this week.

Months ago I started complaining that my oven temp was off because all my cookies were turning out flat and I almost had a full on breakdown a few weeks ago when boyfriend asked for cookies for a work thing and both batches came out flat and I had to send them anyway because he didn’t tell me until the night before.

Not that I’m still upset about it or anything.

Men though.

So yeah, it finally stopped working this week. And I, of course, didn’t realize it until after I thought it had been preheating for 20 minutes and was about to put 2 sheets of veggies in for dinner.

Ugh.

Anyway, the guy came out the next day and got it heating up again but now the whole house smells like gas when I turn it on and maybe I just won’t bake anything else until I move out of here.

Fig, Burrata, and Prosciutto Pizza - sweet fig jam, salty prosciutto, and creamy burrata! Topped with fresh arugula and crushed red pepper flakes.

Hi guys, happy Sunday!

It’s pizza day.

I used some suggestions from you guys this week, spent a stupid amount of time watching pizza videos on Youtube, and stopped into Trader Joe’s for their crust. Oops.

Really though, you just can’t beat their crust. Its fresh, it’s less than 2 bucks, and it works perfectly every time.

Oh, can we talk about this Trader Joe’s I went to? I usually go to the one by the Arboretum because it’s the closest to my house (still an hour away, y’all) but we happened to be further south and ended up at one that involved a parking garage and an escalator.

And y’all, I expect that sort of thing from Whole Foods but Trader Joe’s? That seems extreme.
