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.

Heeeey guys, happy Wednesday!

I feel like I haven’t shared a cocktail in forever.

But, you know, I buy a bag of blood oranges every time I’m at the store just in case it’s the last time I see them. And I have 3 children which means that I’m at the store at least every other day.

I swear half my fridge is blood oranges right now.

Anyone else finding that the blood oranges this year just aren’t as red as they usually are? Mine have all been a dark orange color with orangish-pinkish juice.

Whatever, still amazing, still beautiful.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza – a delicious and easy recipe for pizza night! Barbecue sauce, chicken, bacon, pineapple, and red onion layered with colby jack cheese!

Hi, hello, I sliced a portion of my finger off making this pizza yesterday.

I came very close to quitting cooking forever because that was beyond traumatizing. I’ve never cut myself while cooking. Sure, I’ve accidentally grated my thumb on the cheese grater because haven’t we all? But to just slice off some of your finger?

No.

No.

No.

If you never see bacon on this blog again, remember this post.

Hi guys.

I’ve put pickles on something you’re not supposed to put pickles on again.

I’m sorry.

But listen, I’m having this thing with burgers right now. I took my kids to In-n-Out for our Christmas Eve dinner – did I tell you guys that? We defininitely had animal fries and double doubles in between making cookies for Santa.

And I’ve been thinking about burgers since then but, you know, New Years resolutions or whatever. So going into this long weekend I told myself I’d get In-n-Out by myself on Tuesday if I was good the entire weekend and then you know what happened yesterday?

Snow day.

A. SNOW. DAY.

In central Texas.

It didn’t snow. It was 19 degrees and I’m happy I didn’t have to go anywhere but I either needed snow or a burger in my life.

Maybe today if it warms up enough for me to leave the house.

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.
