Easy Greek Salmon and Orzo 2

Day 3 of #TripleSBites! Today let’s talk about making sacrifices for love. For example, I cannot tell you the number of times I get scoffed at for not liking seafood with the pretense that since I am a food blogger I should love everything edible. Well I hate to break it to you but I don’t love all foods. I only love the ones that I like to eat which happens to be quite a lot, it just doesn’t include things such as seafood, pickles, and coffee. However, that doesn’t stop me from utilizing those things in the occasional recipe, especially when I am cooking for someone who will greatly appreciate it.

Easy Greek Salmon and Orzo 1

Salmon is my sacrifice. It is the last thing I think of when picking a protein for dinner. Chicken, beef, pork, and even tofu occur more frequently than any kind of fish in my kitchen. In fact I think this is only the third fish recipe I am sharing on the blog. Since my salmon cooking skills have not been truly tested I rely on simpler, foil-proof recipes. Pun intended as this is a recipe for foil-wrapped salmon. This Greek-style salmon was incredibly easy to throw together and while it baked I whipped up some orzo to go with it. I have to admit, I didn’t hate it. In fact it was quite good. It seems great sauces makes nearly anything pleasing to the palate.

Black Bean & Chorizo Soup

This comforting black bean soup is pumped up with spicy chorizo and is quick & easy to prepare, making it the perfect weeknight meal for a cold evening.

Black Bean & Chorizo Soup 1

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I cooked from Nicole’s blog, Hapa-tite. Her cooking passion involves the mixing of different food genres together in order to create one fantastic meal, because as she so well stated “that’s how some of the best dishes (and peo­ple ^_^) are made!”. Which leads me to the first recipe that caught my eye on her blog which was her Soy-Glazed Burgers. I will be adding that to my menu plan very soon. Other potential recipes to appear in my kitchen include Rhubarb Ginger Crumble Bars and Pistachio, Cranberry, and Crystallized Ginger Cookies.

Black Bean & Chorizo Soup 2

The recipe I first had to try was this fast and easy black bean soup. Since I moved back to Ohio from Tennessee during the coldest temperatures of the year, I’ve been in desperate need of comforting soup to warm me up from the inside. After seeing chorizo in the ingredient list for this soup, it was promptly added to the menu. The flavors from the chorizo blended exceptionally well with the rest of the soup, little to no salt was necessary, and made it heartier than a typical black bean soup. Cooked rice or quinoa could also be added if you need more oomph. In fact I may try just that next time because I am definitely going to make this again.

BBQ Chicken Pizza with Cornmeal Crust

Break out of the traditional pizza mold with this BBQ chicken pizza. A cornmeal crust topped with BBQ chicken, mozzarella, smoked gouda, and red onion.

BBQ Chicken Pizza with Cornmeal Crust

I love pizza, mostly for it’s versatility. Just like brownies andcookies you can cram just about anything in there. Change the crust, sauce, cheese, toppings, seasonings – the combinations are endless. This allows you to make your pizza your own which is why making pizza at home is so much fun. You can even stuff the crust, adding a whole new variable. Did anyone else drool over Pizza Hut’s commercial for their new bacon and cheese stuffed crust? Come to mamma.

If my childhood self knew the kinds of things my adult self would be putting on top of a sacred cheese pizza I would have be dumbfounded. Falafel? Butternut squash? JalapenoEggs!? The horror! And to think I even dared to put onion on today’s pizza. My childhood self would not have stood for it. It was a brave day when I would have sausage or pepperoni. As you can tell I was a very adventurous child when it came to food and I have come a long, long way. Some of my family members still like to recall how picky of an eater I used to be whenever I whip up something particularly unusual.

But I digress. Bring on all the toppings! Today I give you the recipe for a pizza I discovered upon moving to Memphis nearly a decade ago (holy crap), BBQ pizza. I thought Cincinnati was weird their their combination of chili and spaghetti, but BBQ on pizza? Yes BBQ on pizza and it’s wonderful. I even added cornmeal to the crust to give it a cornbread-like flavor. BBQ pizza was the first pizza to open my eyes to the world of non-marinara sauce based pizzas. And what a fabulous journey it has been!

What is your ideal pizza?
