Pepperoni, Mushroom & Black Olive Pizza Quesadillas

I’ll eat pizza pretty much any way it is served and these pizza quesadillas are exceptional. Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest and trust me, this is the epitome of easy. Pile your favorite toppings on one half of a tortilla shell, place in the skillet, flip, slice and serve! Dinner doesn’t get more straightforward than that. …

Loaded Avocado Fries with Garlic Aioli

Zelda and I are always looking for healthy alternatives to not so good for you but oh so delicious snacks and these Loaded Avocado Fries are right up our ally. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my child is addicted to both avocados and bacon, so for her this was a match made in heaven. …

Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

We are all guilty of eating raw cookie dough and while no one I know has ever gotten sick from salmonella, I'm willing to try consuming it the safe way. Safe to eat cookie dough takes all of about ten minutes to make and might just be a little too easy. As some one who usually eats one or two dollops …

Sweet Summertime Peach Flatbread

I usually don’t make peach flatbread at home because I can never quite recreate that special restaurant magic, until now. This was the first time I ever put Flatout Flatbread in the oven and it makes for a super crispy and delicious crust. Grilling the peaches beforehand is essential – it adds a lovely char that makes the …

Kelly Nelson’s Texas Sheet Cake

Looking at most of these photos you would never know I experienced a major baking fail when making Rad Mom, Kelly Nelson’s Texas Sheet Cake. Sh*t happens when you bake and sometimes it is not always pretty. I was just reading an article about a mom who dropped her daughter’s perfect birthday cake right …

Grown Ups Only: Colorful Tequila Lollipops

Cosmopolitan featured these Tequila Lollipops in a video that went viral and when I saw it I set out to make the pops. Turns out, Cosmopolitan’s recipe left out some crucial information – like the temperature the syrup needs to be before it reaches the hard crack phase required for candy making. Needless to say, our …

French Apple Tart

With Bastille Day on Friday we have all things French on the brain! If your little ones are a little older, Zelda and I fully approve of throwing a French themed tea party with this delicious French Apple Tart. Working with puff pastry is always a little intimidating because it is so delicate. I was worried that this recipe might …

Spiro’s Famous Tzatziki Recipe

Okay, you guys -- this is BIG. Spiro makes the best tzatziki I've ever tasted in my life and he finally agreed to let me feature it on the site. He had two conditions. The first was that I had to showcase each step in detail and the second was that he got to make it and write the recipe …

Rachel Leykind’s Juicy Baklava

Full disclosure: My baby daddy is Greek and I’ve never made baklava before. This was my first attempt and I made two aesthetically fatal errors – I didn’t grind the nuts into a powder and I froze the phyllo dough prior to making the recipe. BIG MISTAKE. I received this dessert recipe from Rad Mom, Rachel …

Skinny Smoothies That Can Be Made with Alcohol

Sometimes mom needs a little something extra in her skinny smoothie (and I don't mean Lisa Rinna style!). These couldn't be more reminiscent of summer, and if your littles want to participate, just whip up a batch without the tequila. They taste amazing with or without alcohol. Use an adorable watermelon lollipop as a garnish to add an extra pop of fun! …
