National Pizza Party Day!!! 

Wow first Caesar day and now Pizza!!!!!! Some of my favorite eats…. yes eats …Caesar are a meal in itself!!!

Pizza is a treat in our house we enjoy making it from scratch. The kids love helping measure the flour and watching the dough rise. Special childhood moments I believe they will remember for a lifetime. However after a long day of garage sale hopping my princess is fast asleep and my prince stayed at Nana’s for a sleepover. 🙂😉 


Our Favorite quick pizza dough recipe… MUST TRY

The above link is a recipe for the best pizza dough recipe I have tried. It’s a quick rise only take 30mins and is truly amazing …. definitely in my must try list. 

Sooo adult theme pizza it is to honor national pizza party day !! Tonight menu is Seafood Alfredo with herb soft goat cheese  and a Ham / Salami with onions…. YESSSS ONIONS…..pizzas YUM 


Onions are always a staple in my cooking as they add tons of flavor. My kids tho aren’t as in love with them as me, soooo when I can put them on my pizzas in full visibility it’s a treat for this mommy. 


Once our pizzas are all prepped and made using that great pizza dough recipe above. 

The dough will make two 12inch pizzas. 

*** top your pizzas with whatever ingredients you love and as a busy mom of two I feel no shame in using a store bought pizza sauce***

We will cook them at 425f for 20 minutes.

And the results are yummy…. there nothing better then homemade pizzas!! Hand down worth the time..

Simple Summer Potato Salad

Let’s see what should my first blog be about……. Got it… one of my favorite summer eats ..good old simple potato salad. There are so many versions that you can make of potato salad but I really like to keep it simple especially being a mom with two little kids that aren’t overly adventurous in their food right now. So let’s keep it basic some potatoes, some eggs, little bit a green onion and all my favorite spices so here we go.

Some of  you might ask why am I starting with a potato salad because it’s on the menu tonight… Simple barbecue burgers with potato salad on a nice sunny day nothing says summer like it.


I always say the first thing to a great recipe is great ingredients, so make sure that your green onions are fresh you’re using great eggs , Hellmann’s mayonnaise and only Yukon Gold potatoes. I pick Yukon Gold potatoes because I fine they have a lot of flavor maybe not so starchy  and they hold their shape very well unlike say you’re russet potato.

So the first thing you’re going to want to do is clean your potatoes up. I like to fully peel my potatoes as my family is not very keen on the potato skins in their potato salad so I peel them right up, I keep them whole and put them in a pot of water.

Peel 5-7 medium size potatoes


Helpful tip #1 ….

As a mom my time in the kitchen usually rushed everybody’s hungry right now and wants something on the table in a hurry. So instead of wasting your time going back-and-forth to the garbage throwing out potato skins or onions peels … pull out of a large bowl and have a scrap bowl right beside a cutting board until you’re done prepping your meal.  Shoot out to the fabulous Rachel Ray #rachelray for teaching me that along time ago…


Just like a pot of pasta season your water aggressively. I like to use lots of just regular table salt to make sure that my potatoes come out full of flavor.

Cooking times will vary on the side of the potatoes that you have in there. A good rule of thumb is to check them every 10 minutes make sure they come out fork tender. I like my potatoes to maintain their shape just a little, however if you tend to like a more slight mash potato consistency just keep them in for an extra five minutes.

Strain your potatoes in a colander making sure that all excess water is out put them in a mixing bowl and cool them in the fridge.

I make a standard hard boiled egg so I’ll use one egg per person that I’m feeding on general. My family likes it a little heavy on the eggs so that’s kind of my rule but again if you want less eggs put less… for those of you that aren’t comfortable altering a recipe yet stick to mine I swear to you you’re gonna love it.

Hard boil 6 eggs for 10-12 mins and peel

Again you’ll have to let your eggs cool you want them fridge cold not room temperature. There are very good warm potato salad recipes however this one is best with very cold ingredients.

Some people will argue the fact that you should mix your potato salad well ingradients are still warm, that way the potatoes will absorb some of the mayonnaise flavors however our potatoes our well seasoned, our eggs are perfect so mixing the ingredients cold for this recipe is the way to go.

Let’s get mixing this tasty salad

First slice your potatoes into bite size pieces


Quarter the eggs and then slice into bite size pieces



Fine dice two large green onions and add to bowl


Yum right!!!!! Time to add some spices

First let me tell you about what I call my house seasoning. It’s a great mix of salt, pepper, onion powder , garlic powder, celery seeds, dash of sugar and cumin. Receipt to come…

Add 1 1/2 tsp House Seasonings


Add salt please remember when we were using the salt that if you’re using the Hellmann’s mayonnaise I find it a tad on the salty side so you might want to add 1tsp at first and adjust as you go.

Add 1 tsp black pepper … I love the Kirkland Tellicherry Black Pepper Grinder.


Next is the mayonnaise. Again as I mention earlier we like Hellmans but you can use whatever you have on hand. Do remember the whipped dressing / mayos are seasoned and will alter the flavor.

Add 3/4 cups Hellmans Mayo


We are ready to mix it all up, lighty folding the ingredients all together until it’s well mixed.

Your salad should have to texture and consistency shown below.

Helpful tip# 2

Tasting as you go…. you always want to try your food your making along the way to insure the seasoning are on point.

So taste your salad insure it’s seasoned perfectly … if you are happy cover and chill still served.

We eat this tasty salad all summer long and I hope you love as much as we do.

Tonight supper ….
