What's cookin.....

I've been a bad blogger. Honestly, the tragedy in Japan makes me feel guilty about discussing purses, lipstick and the rest of it all. I know "life goes on", but situations like this really help you put things in perspective. Don't get me wrong, I still love all things beautiful and pretty and horribly expensive....I just felt it was good to take some time off. I have, however, kept things going in the kitchen. Here's what has kept me motivated to get on my treadmill:

Ms. Big boobs Pea Pesto Crostini. Don't just put this on crostini-a.k.a. bread that you could lose a tooth on---we have had it on salmon and tilapia. Yum. I also may have eaten it by the spoon full.

Chocolate Mint Pixies. Stupid good. And ridiculously easy to make. Not a fan of mint? Leave it out. I should be a life coach.

A very tasty THIN crust pizza dough recipe. My husband made this the other night and added fresh cracked pepper in the dough. Insane.

This BLEW my mind. I subbed spicy chicken sausage, and added more crushed red pepper.

Smitten Kitchen Toasted Coconut shortbreads. Just try to stop at two. Try.

Um, yummy - I love anything pesto! I might actually try to make that and the pixies! Of course, I think the pixies would need to be tested out as a shake too, vodka being optional. And I am pretty sure I saw your doppelgänger at Target on Sunday afternoon in OP.

I am seriously sad we don't live in the same city. I would stalk your doorstep looking for dinner scraps. That lasagna is going on my dinner list for next week. and the Mint Pies, I am speechless.
