Just a Little Something

February 14, 2019

A grand gesture isn’t always necessary when it comes to Valentines Day. Simple quiet expressions of your affections are equally appreciated, especially when the holiday falls mid-week and you would prefer to spend the evening in. Here are just a few suggestions that are sure to be well received should you be drawing a blank.

Just a few perfect fragrant blooms makes the perfect simplequietmodern statement.

Pizza Night

October 6, 2017

In less time than it takes to run out and pick one up, you can bake a pizza and have it on the table. A few ingredients gathered up beforehand have you at the ready when your new Fall schedule has you slammed. Pre-made pizza dough, jarred pesto, a red onion and some cheese is all you need for my favorite Pesto Pizza. While the oven is coming to temperature at 500 degrees simply pat out your dough into a round or rectangle, start with some provolone, then an even layer of Pesto, a scattering of sliced red onion and then finally some mozzarella. Ten to twelve minutes in the oven and you’re done.
