Easy Peasy Bruschetta Pizzette

L-A At Home

I love making pizzettes. They are so taste and you can do so many different varieties, the combinations are endless (strawberries and basil drizzled in balsamic glaze, caramelized onions and brie – you name it). I love pairing this version of bruschetta with a melbec like Kaiken. Very smooth, light and easy drinking. You can also find the original recipe on my first blog post It’s all about the food!

Here is what you will need:

  • Naan breads
  • Mini bocconcini cut,
  • Olive oil,
  • Tomatoes cored and chopped
  • Garlic minced
  • Fresh basil chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Balsamic glaze.

How to make the bruschetta pizzette:

  • Preheat the oven to 425. In a bowl combine bocconcini, olive oil, tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Place Naan bread on a pizza pan or baking sheet. Spread bruschetta mixture over the Naan bread. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Take out of…

Beautiful Bread

L-A At Home

There is nothing like the smell of homemade bread wafting through my house as it bakes early on a Saturday morning. Making bread from scratch use to scare me until my parents bought me a bread machine. Don’t worry, this post is NOT about baking bread in a bread machine but it is unfortunately how I started to learn how to make bread.
There is something gratifying and therapeutic about making homemade bread. I don’t think I’ve bought a loaf of store bought bread for about 3 years – it is just that good!
The big differences that you will find with homemade bread vs. store bought bread are taste and shelf life. The taste of homemade bread is out of this world and is probably one of the most comforting tastes you can have when a warm slice has been cut and smeared with butter…just heavenly! The other difference…

Newfoundland Cod Cakes

L-A At Home

My husband is from Newfoundland, so cod is a fish that we eat quite often. When we go “home” cod is always something that we look forward to having because it is so fresh. This recipe is a very simple dish that has been a staple in many Newfoundland kitchens, it has a mild flavour and is a flakey white fish, so I find that most kids will eat it. I usually top the cod with coleslaw and sliced avocado but it also tastes good with hollandaise sauce. I also use my homemade bread recipe to make buns but you can easily use brioche buns which, tastes so good with it. Haddock comes from the same family as cod, so you can easily substitute with it in this recipe.

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 1/2 – 2 pounds of salted cod
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 onion chopped

Mediterranean Potatoes – The Wacky Spoon


Mediterranean Potatoes – The Wacky Spoon


🐟 The Habit Grill hack. 11/12/19

This might not fit in with my day’s reblogs today, but it was just too cool of a suggestion to avoid. I’m assuming she’s using tuna steak. You have to be rich or feel rich for the day you do this.


When it comes to sort of fast food, I like to eat at The Habit Burger Grill.  But I do not want to spend precious WW points eating a burger on a bun. That would be more than half of my total daily points! At The Habit you can get their burgers and sandwiches as a lettuce wrap. So I order the tuna filet sandwich as a lettuce wrap.

Tuna lettuce wrap

I am not satisfied with a piece of tuna in a bunch of lettuce, though. I bring along a toasted pita half, cut a pita-sized portion of the tuna and stuff it, some lettuce, and a slice of tomato into my pita. Now I have a nice hand-held sandwich to eat. WW points=4 for the tuna and its dressing (no teriyaki sauce, please) and WW points=2 for the pita, so a total of 6 WW points.

Tuna filet…

Slow Cooker Pulled Ham

Are you a ham or turkey kind of person for the holidays?

I’m a turkey kind of gal. Actually, I could care less what the entree is; my favorite part of holiday meals are the sides. Give me a plate full of stuffing and mashed potatoes any day over sliced turkey or ham.

My family usually cooks a turkey for Thanksgiving and a ham for Christmas. One year, my mom really, really wanted something called a “country ham”. She had it specially ordered from Virginia or Georgia and hung it up in our pantry for the month leading up to Christmas.

When it was time to bite down on the treasured ham—you couldn’t get through one bite. It was so, so salty. It was the saltiest thing I had ever tasted in my life. We had to throw that country ham away and have been doing turkey for both holidays…

Bruschetta Cod


Cod not to be confused with salt cod is something I eat often. Most seafood I’m really not that into but ill make a exception for cod. I prefer meatier fish like cod, mahi, or tuna. The challenge is keeping me interested so I’m always trying to think of different ways to get it in my diet.

I pass up my paella pan on the daily. Sometimes I wonder why I don’t use it more often since its perfectly good pan and I make paella only maybe twice a year. So I promised my pan I utilize it more. So here’s me keeping my promise to it. I can’t be the only one that thinks this pan is incredibly under utilized right? I love it because its the epitome of one pot , pan to table meals. You don’t need a serving platter or extra dishes. Everything looks pretty impressive…

Bucatini and Meatballs


So it’s that time of year, the squirrels are stealing patio furniture stuffing, to carry up the trees and it driving me absolutely crazy. I thought that ended there, but I noticed my basil plants look a little… manhandled and distressed. So that’s where I drew the line. So, although I’m trying and working on it. I have absolutely no green thumb. But I must pat myself on the back because its getting a little better. So this unprompted attack on my basil was a big blow and now personal. So I collected a good portion of the plant. I just want it outside as much as it can be before I have to bring everyone in before the real cold sets in.

With that being said I’ve been having to think of ways to utilize all this basil. Meatballs came to mind and I love meatballs, but I live…

Honey Bourbon Buffalo Ribs


I’m getting a cold so maybe I just have honey bourbon on the brain. I went to the store the other day and I saw this franks red hot dry mix. I figured it looked interesting enough. I saw it a couple times before and it definitely stood out in the spice aisle. This time I went for it.

With the cold weather out I’m already getting ready for a lot of smoking. I’m even getting a lot request from people to not forget about them when I do. It’s not till after these storms and showers that I’ll resupply the wood and keep a pile just for smoking. The only thing with a wood pile comes snakes. The thought alone stresses me out. Since the last couple storms haven’t passed and its a beautiful day out. I decided let set up the grill. This was probably my best fire…

Recipe #28: Easy Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Lindsay's Cooking Adventures

I don’t think I have ever made a carrot cake but after making this one, I will definitely be making it again. If you are looking for a beginner recipe, this is it. What makes it even better is the cream cheese frosting. Yum.

It’s also one of those cakes that seems like it can’t be healthy, but it’s really filled with goodness. First of all, it has whole wheat flour (I used half white and half whole wheat) which is very healthy. There is also tons of grated carrot – 1 pound – so that gives has a lot of nutrition and it helps to keep the cake moist.

The greek yogurt keeps the cake moist too and the cinnamon gives nice flavour. I also like that it wasn’t overly sweet, it was the perfect amount of maple syrup in the batter. Another thing I liked is the chopped…
