pizza, pals, parents and a sourdough pizza recipe in that order

If you’re here for the sourdough pizza dough recipe, skip to the end, this is going to be a real rambler. I have had more pizza these past two weeks than I’ve had all year. And I’m not complaining. Just thought I’d share. We wrapped up the Long Beach leg of our Homeless Tour 2013 […]

sourdough tortillas

The best thing about keeping sourdough starter is being able to share it with friends.  The best thing about sharing sourdough starter with MY friends is that they are all a bunch of super creative freaks who take an idea and run-forest-run with it, often to my direct benefit.  When I give a friend a […]

Perfect Sangria

sangria alone

It’s amazing how just a few short months ago I was so sick and tired of cold weather  I was cursing the snow and talking smack to the sun about how incredibly weak it was.   I craved heat like a Kardashian craves attention (and if you don’t know who the Kardashians are, be grateful and move on).  […]


This last weekend I had a boat-full of fun in the sun.  My husband’s family all met up in Laughlin, NV, with water toys in tow, for a little R & R at the river.  So. Rad.  The whole idea for this get-away came from Randy’s grandmeire.  This lady is amazing.  In fact, his whole […]

it’s about the fish

Back before my husband was even officially my boyfriend, he blew off Christmas Eve dinner with my family to fish.  To fish, people.  Not going to lie, I was pretty mad.  We were at the beginning stages of figuring each other out and let’s just say that little episode taught us very valuable lessons about […]

slices of heaven

As I make more and more of my own food, I’m finding that there are amazing bonus foods to be had by being creative with the excess.  I don’t want to just make two loaves of sourdough and four loaves of wheat bread every single time I bake.  Even after giving some away, we end […]

holy whole wheat, batman

Early this weekend my mom came over and taught me how to use her mill to make wheat bread.  Compared to the sourdough process, this is a total breeze.  It should have taken about one hour total time, but it took us a little longer because I took extra time to take a bunch of […]

sourdough bread is so awesome

Oh man.  Sourdough Bread.  Nuff said. Ok.  I’ll elaborate some because I know you want me to and I aim to please. My mom sent off to Alaska for a wooden spoon dipped in sourdough starter.  Bless her soul, her beautiful, beautiful soul. I am now addicted to all things sourdough and if that’s wrong, […]


I do not hug trees.  I have to make this abundantly clear so that you, dear reader, don’t feel like I’m leading you on.   I eat things with faces.  I love meat.  I’ll be honest with you, if there was more meat on them, I would eat the faces.  I like whales and white rhinos, […]
