Chorizo Taco Pizza

My husband and kids love pizza and they love tacos.  If I’m being honest, even though I also really enjoy Mexican food, sometime I just get tired of eating tacos and burritos.  There, I said it – will you still love me?  One night, I looked at the ingredients in my fridge and the idea for this Chorizo Taco Pizza was born.  It’s Mexican flavors on top of a pizza crust, but it doesn’t feel like your eating a taco or a pizza, it’s just straight up delicious.  What’s not to love?  There’s a crispy crust, chorizo, black beans, lettuce, avocado, onion, jalapeno, eggs, and cheeeeeese.  

Creamy Dreamy Shrimp & Vodka Sauce Pasta (With Fresh Tomatoes!)

This Creamy Dreamy Shrimp & Vodka Sauce Pasta has a secret ingredient.  Do you want to know what it is?  The secret ingredient makes the vodka sauce extra creamy and thick, provides some tang, and is downright delicious.  Ready?  It’s goat cheese.  Goat cheese is melted straight into the vodka sauce and trust me, it’s the way to go.  I also added goat cheese as a garnish, but it’s the goat cheese that’s IN the vodka sauce that is the hidden gem.  The flavor of the goat cheese is not prominent in the sauce, in fact, I don’t think you could detect it if you didn’t already know it was there, it blends beautifully with the flavor of the vodka sauce.  We have even gotten to the fresh tomato flavor yet.  Are you ready to get cooking?  This dish comes together quickly and has outside dinner party written alllllll over it. 

Easy Greek Chicken Pitas

Confession: I’m a bit of an introvert and not very good at hosting people at our house.  I always enjoy it when we do have people over, but for some reason, I just don’t do it that often.  As my kids are getting older (they’re currently 4 and 7) I’d like to start inviting family and friends over more frequently.  One thing that I don’t love about hosting is the time you have to spend to prepare all of the food (let’s not even get into cleaning the house!).  Last weekend I got the idea for this Easy Greek Chicken Platter and I have to tell you, it’s going to be my new go to hosting meal.  It’s easy, take almost no time at all and with all of those toppings choices, there’s sure to be something for everyone.  I have another confession, I took some major help from my grocery store to pull this off – details below!
