Arugula, Black Garlic & Cherry Tomato Pizza

Sweet, spreadable black garlic is the star of this pizza. The whole wheat thin crust is also topped with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, cherry tomatoes and baby arugula.

I should be in Memphis today. Weezer is performing at Snowden Grove tonight and a few months ago I swore I would find a way to get there but as time ticked away I realized it was not fiscally responsible to buy tickets for a band I’ve already seen 3 times – even if it’s been over 7 years since I last saw them. Of course that’s not all, there’s also a Dishcrawl event in Memphis today for bacon lovers. To compensate you might find me jamming out to Weezer all day while eating bacon.

While this pizza does not have bacon, it does have prosciutto which is basically fancy bacon. It also has a bunch of other fancy things such as fresh mozzarella, arugula and black garlic. What the heck is black garlic? It is caramelized garlic which is the result of being heated at a low temperature for about 40 days. So yea you can make it yourself if you feel like leaving a hot plate/slow cooker on for 40 days straight or you can just buy some like it did (I found it at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati, OH). It has the spreadable consistency of roasted garlic but a sweeter flavor. In other words you’ll want to spread it on everything like butter.

Surprise Flapjacks

These flapjacks (pancakes) have all kinds of surprise ingredients from pecans to cornmeal, dubbing them as surprise flapjacks! It is no surprise however that they are quite tasty.

Surprise Flapjacks 1

I started off my week with a phone interview, only to receive a rejection letter for the same job the very next day. I am still waiting to hear back about my in person interview supposedly happening this month, which I’ve been planning on since May. I e-mailed them 2 weeks into July to which I received a reply saying they would be in touch. It’s been over a week since then and July is coming to a close. I’ll give them 2 full weeks before I follow up again. Hopefully they are truly sorting things out and not blowing me off. With that kind of apprehension, how about we end this week with some pancakes?

I am not sure why these flapjacks (pancakes) were dubbed as “surprise” other than the slew of surprise ingredients such as corn meal, oats, and chopped pecans. Makes me think that “compost flapjacks” would have been more appropriate. But no matter what the name is I am certain you will be calling them “delicious”. All of those ingredients come together for one hearty and tasty breakfast. I thoroughly enjoyed the texture the pecans added.

Whole Wheat Bread Bowls 1

In case you were unaware, USA beat Ghana last night!! Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch the game live and ended up knowing the final score before watching it but it was still fun seeing it play out. Now here’s to hoping Portugal (and mostly Cristiano Ronaldo – beautiful, beautiful man who happens to also be amazing at soccer) doesn’t take out it’s frustration on us Sunday for being demolished by Germany yesterday. Germany is one amazing team!

Unrelated to the World Cup is my newest U-pick farm adventure. On my and my dad’s last strawberry picking outing we also had the chance to pick our own broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage! I may have gotten a bit carried away and had to freeze one of the larger heads of broccoli (it was the size of two large heads combined found at the grocery store), but the rest is being thrown into all kinds of recipes. Although these bread bowl were not made with any of those three things, they were created to hold my favorite broccoli cheddar soup which is one of my earlier recipes on this blog.

I have yet to figure out what to do with the cabbage, thoughts?

Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies 1

Cookies for breakfast are even more acceptable when it’s cookies for brunch! These cookies were inspired by the “vegetable dessert” lovingly known as carrot cake. At first, it took a lot of restraint to not top these off with cream cheese icing, just like it’s dessert-cousin. In an effort to keep these breakfast cookies more breakfasty and less desserty, I topped half of them with shredded coconut (half without for the coconut haters). This small addition made all the difference, adding just the right amount of sweetness without being overbearing. And now you can start your day with cookies (without the guilt and/or judging eyes).

Oven-Fried Chicken & Biscuit Waffles

After getting you liquored up yesterday with my Raspberry Tequila Sunrise, how about something savory? For brunch today I am serving up a combination of chicken & biscuits and chicken & waffles using my favorite technique for oven-fried chicken. But this time the Panko breading was seasoned with Cajun seasoning. Then I made waffles out of biscuit batter and topped it all off with a dollop of homemade basil pesto. For a sweeter option, this would also be great topped with some Bonne-Maman fruit preserves.

Cheesy Vegetable Enchiladas

Searching for a great meatless meal? These cheesy vegetable enchiladas are packed with so much flavor that you won’t even miss the meat.

Cheesy Vegetable Enchiladas 2

For the past 5 days I’ve been on the opposite side of the country, visiting family in LA and San Diego because my nephew is turning two, doubling his age! Can you believe it’s already been another year since his first birthday? I certainly cannot. His birthday party was this past Saturday but I am waiting to share the photos until his actual birthday this Wednesday, March 26th. Stay turned for that if you’re into adorable two-year olds.

In the meantime, feast your eyes upon my latest enchilada creation. With  sweet potato, black beans, corn, bell pepper, rice and cheese, these veggie enchiladas are packed with so much flavor you’ll find that meat would be completely unnecessary. And then throw some avocado on top while you’re at it.

Whole Wheat Scone for One

When the craving for a scone hits but you don’t want to bake an entire batch, why not just make one? This single serving scone recipe can be any flavor you desire and only takes 15 minutes.

Whole Wheat Scone for One 3

Other than the joys of trying new recipes and meeting like-minded-food-obsessed people, I’ve really enjoyed how food blogging has conquered more than one enemy. By enemy I am referring to food that I dislike, or disliked in this scenario. The newest victory? Scones.

I’ve always considered scones to be dry, dense, crumbly versions of a biscuit or muffin because that’s what my experiences have reflected. Since I do not like coffee, their appeal was lessened further by the inability to soften them by soaking in coffee. No thanks, I’ll take the muffin please. But all the while I have seen several scones recipes that have sounded absolutely amazing, if only they were of a different consistency from what I assumed all scones to be.

Whole Wheat Scone for One 1

One day I stumbled upon a single serving scone recipe and knew it was time to finally make one for myself. If it proved to be as disappointing as always, at least only one would go to waste. But as you can already guess that did not happen. It should not have been surprising to me that I enjoyed this homemade scone immensely despite previous lack luster experiences with purchased scones. Not only do most things taste better homemade (such as homemade pita), the same experience had already occurred with meringue and macarons. Why not scones? This single serving scone was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, just like a fresh biscuit but with more flavor. I have seen the light.

What is your favorite scone flavor/recipe? I have some catching up to do!

With the coming of yet another snow storm, I figured many of you were in need of a sweet comforting breakfast option today. Even in east TN  the temperature dropped 40 degrees in less than 24 hours and there were even snowflake sightings. I think Florida is yet again the only state to be spared the wrath of the polar vortex.

Homemade Whole Grain Pancake Mix

On Friday I resubmitted my paper to the editor, hopefully satisfying the reviewers’ questions and comments. Since then I have been anxiously watching my e-mail inbox. I’m so excited to finally be able to pubmed myself after all these years of hard work! I will let you know when that happens.

Homemade Whole Grain Pancake Mix 1

In the meantime, let’s make pancakes. Pancake mix is a handy way to make pancakes but instead of buying it from the store, make it at home! This mix is full of oats and whole wheat to start your day (or end if you like breakfast for dinner). In the spirit of the holidays, I made a batch of pancakes with eggnog instead of buttermilk. It was a most excellent decision.

Quick Turkey Noodle Soup

Last Sunday I showed you how to cook a Thanksgiving meal for two with a little bit leftover to enjoy another day. Today I sharing a fun way to utilize Thanksgiving leftovers, inspired by my grandmother and her ability to make soup out of anything.

When I first decided to make a noodle soup with leftover turkey, I realized that gravy is literally reduced stock (assuming you cook down the turkey juices to make gravy) and therefore could be reconstituted in this soup. Take a moment to bask in my glorious realization. Of course you could use premade stock or a store-bought stock concentrate but if you have gravy you may as well use it! After how delicious my gravy turned out, I couldn’t see how it could possibly be a bad idea.
