Rising dough

Homemade pizza

Homemade pizza

I followed the instructions from this NYT article on making better homemade pizza. The results? I liked the toppings, but the crust still isn’t right. It is a tricky thing to master — pizza crust. Also, I wanted a healthier pizza and in truth? I missed all that gooey cheese. I am going to keep playing with different flours this summer to try to get it just right.


I also turned a handful of peaches from a friend’s tree into a fun dessert — a modification of this great Pioneer Woman recipe.

Matt and the giant peach

Peach and blueberry cobbler

I’ve noticed when eating farmer’s market or garden produce, I eat less. The flavors are such much more intense — you need less. Someone should write a silly new trendy diet book on this and get more people gardening and eating locally.

    Sounds like you didn’t love your pizza, but when I caught a glimpse of it, my stomach growled just a little bit.
    Also… waiting for my handicap revision to come out because I’ve been golfing like a crazy woman. Want to be able to update you on any progress. :0)

  3. I want all of those things in my belly. And as soon as Ryan and I shack up in a new place, you can bet I’ll be coming to you for gardening advice!

  6. Ummmm yummm I’ll be right over!!

  7. lol I think the locavore diet already exists. Yum, I want peaches. šŸ™‚

  8. Your comments on eating less because the flavor is better reminded me why I only buy good quality ice cream, mayonnaise, and alcohol. šŸ˜‰
