Thin Crust Pizza Dough

Happy Memorial Day weekend! ‘Tis the season for grilling but with the crazy wind outside I decided to move cooking inside. The art of perfect pizza has been a labor of love – and a lot of cardboard crust. The biggest key to a good flavor? Patience. I’m not good at it, but it’s the key to the texture and taste. There’s just something to the slow raised, fridge fermented dough. This recipe makes 3-4 pizzas that feed 2-3 people depending on toppings, appetite, size, etc. The one pictured was 1/4 of the dough. And I ate the whole thing. I wish you all a happy bonus weekend Monday – it’s my last one of maternity leave and I’m eating my feelings. Cheers!

Classic Burger Bun

Oh, heyyy 👋🏻 Long time no see! I posted these buns on Instagram the other day and I realized I’ve been a bad friend for not sharing. Ok it’s worse than that. When I downloaded the WordPress app on my new phone it reminded me it’s been over a year since my last post. In my defense, it was a busy year. Husband. House. Baby. Basically all at once – but I’m back. Ok, back-ish. Let’s see how much the boss baby allows! I discovered Better Batter GF flour from Nicole at Gluten Free on a Shoestring who has an amazing library of resources for new and seasoned GF bakers alike. While it’s more expensive than making your own blend, my goodness is it a handy, versatile solution and baking at home is always better and cheaper than surrendering to the $7 pack of hockey puck hamburger buns. This dough is so easy and so quick. Start the dough before you start prepping your burger/chicken/portobello for the grill and they’ll be ready in time to …

Crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken {Gluten Free}

One of the coolest developments in the Fenway neighborhood in recent years is the transformation of the park into a concert venue for a few select shows during the summer, and this summer is no exception. Billy Joel and Zac Brown took over the field for 3 incredible shows this past weekend, and the roommate and I got to enjoy a lovely evening of friends, food and music, all in our backyard. If you’re familiar with Zac Brown Band, then you already know where the inspiration to make fried chicken came from, but along with the obvious, it just seemed like an appropriate summer meal.  Oh and we had attended a food festival earlier in the day that was serving up gluten-UNfriendly double fried Korean chicken wings that smelled like Heaven. This was the inevitable. I embraced it. Amazingly, I haven’t even tried fried chicken since going gluten free, which was 3 years ago last week. I’m not sure why but probably reasons including but not limited to: 1) The mess of butchering a chicken. 2) …

Pepperoni Pizza

It’s 4:08am in a New York City diner. Tick Tock Diner, if you were wondering. Only I could manage to turn a 4 hour train ride within the same time zone into a ‘red eye’. I’m meeting my wonderful little (and by little, I mean grown man that towers over me) cousin in a couple hours to enjoy an east coast weekend tour of NYC and Boston. What comes to mind when you think of New York? For me, it’s the food. (It’s always about food). Right now I’m lamenting the fact that I can’t go get a couple large pepperoni slices from some guy named Vinny that will tell me how gorgeous I look in my scrubby clothes and glasses at 4:08am. Side Note: This place is playing Billy Joel right now. If you haven’t hung out in a New York City diner, it is exactly what you picture. Stereotypes exist for a reason. I love it. As I was saying… Pizza. I made some last week and I think I finally came up …
