Pizza night just got a little more fun with this homemade sheet pan pizza!
Happy Friday everyone!
Do you know what that means at our house? Yep, you guessed it. Pizza night! It’s my family’s favorite night of the week, and the best start to the weekend. A few homemade slices, a glass of wine, some laughs and silliness from my boys— I can think of few things I love more.
This sheet pan pizza right here is the pizza we enjoy almost every week. It’s made with my favorite from-scratch pizza crust, covered with our favorite toppings, and baked on a sheet pan.
The only homemade pizza dough recipe you’ll ever need!
Friday night is pizza night at our house, and this is the pizza crust recipe I’ve made from scratch almost every Friday for many, many years.
I’m updating this post today not because I’ve made any changes— it’s always the same, week after week— but because I love it sooo much. And I want you to fall in love with it too. It’s light and crispy on the outside while staying chewy on the inside. A wonderful base for whatever ingredients you like.
Three ingredients are all you need for these light and airy coconut macaroons made with whipped meringue.
What happens when you cross a light and airy meringue with an intensely sweet coconut macaroon? You get these delightful little snowballs.
It begins with a beautiful Italian meringue— hot sugar poured over whipped egg whites and beaten until thick and glossy. Add to that an insane amount of toasted coconut and you’re on your way. All that’s left is to scoop and bake them just until they’ve turned golden brown.
There’s more than meets the eye with these coconut meringue macaroons so don’t be fooled by their plain appearance. I’ve baked them many times over the years and every time I do I fall a little deeper in love with their simplicity. These “cookies” are light, sweet, and wonderfully chewy.
My Instant Pot seriously sat in its box in a corner of my office for months before I finally got the courage to figure it out. And once I did, I discovered it wasn’t hard or scary at all! One of the things that helped me the most when I got started with my Instant Pot is my friend Barbara’s site Pressure Cooking Today. Her recipes and video demonstrations were a lifesaver, and I still make dishes from her site all the time.
And now Barbara’s new book, The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook is here to help us all take our pressure cooker game to the next lever. It’s filled with 200 simple recipes— everything from three-ingredient pulled pork, to beef bourguignon done in less than an hour, and even desserts like New York cheesecake.
These heart-shaped almond cookies sandwiched with raspberry jam make such a beautiful treat!
Come on, you guys knew I had a heart-shaped dessert coming! How could I not, with Valentine’s right around the corner?
These raspberry almond linzer cookies are delicate and dainty, but it’s not all about their looks. The combination of almonds, lemon zest, and raspberry jam is just wonderful. More like little cakes than cookies, these linzer cookies would be star of any Valentine’s Day party, and they’re also perfect for gifting! You can easily change the shape and even use a different flavor of jam to create any look you’d like.
This sparkling pretty-in-pink cocktail perfect is for any celebration!
I don’t consider myself a super girly-girl, but I gotta admit it— I love pink! Pink foods in particular, and especially this time of year. February is when I can make all my pink, cute, and (okay, fine) girly sweet dreams come true. ♥
This fun and easy cocktail requires just 2 ingredients, raspberry liqueur and sparkling rosé. It’s sweet, fizzy, and perfect for sharing either with your Valentine or your girlfriends.
This steak and fettuccine alfredo is a simple but elegant dinner for two!
I love Valentine’s Day! There, I said it. It seems to be the holiday to dislike, but I can’t help getting excited about it every year. Though, I will confess that we do it a little differently than most.
There are no flowers, no gifts, and no restaurant reservations. Instead we stay in and get the whole family involved with fancy table settings, candles, and champagne (and sparkling cider for the kids). I make us something a little nicer than my usual weeknight fare and we have a lot of fun. The kids go nuts for it! Which, honestly, is my favorite part.
This decadent chocolate sauce flavored with sweet wine is a wonderful topping for ice cream, cake, and fresh fruit!
Known as zabaglione in Italy and sabayon in France, I admit this dessert sounds a little fancy. But all you need to know is that it’s a light custard made from whipping together egg yolks, a little sugar, and wine over heat. It’s very simple, but amazing. Add some chocolate and it’s irresistible.
