I am a winner!

I won a giveaway on Today's Creative Blog, which led Kim to post a link to my blog in big print on her site. Which led me to realize I haven't updated in months!

So here is a random update with a delicious summer recipe I tried from Smitten Kitchen a few weeks ago.

Lemony Zucchini Goat Cheese Pizza:

I used Smitten Kitchen's really simple homemade pizza dough recipe, which was seriously simple and only took a couple of hours!

Here's the dough, waiting 1-2 hours to rise


The finished pizza - sooo good! I added an heirloom tomato and summer squash in addition to zucchini. All local from the farmer's market, delish!
Also, I have to plug Laura Chenel's goat cheese, my absolute favorite. Hopefully you can find it at your local market, like I did at mine, and I also discovered it recently at my local Costco! (Seriously, they have a huge 11 oz. log for $4.99! I almost fainted.)


Yum!

This was my first attempt at a homemade dinner that involved more than just boiling some water in a long time. In September I switch from a full-time job to a part-time new position and my goal is to cook (and blog!) a lot more. I hope this recipe inspires you to try something new.


P.S. I won a cute onesie from Kara's Cupcake, just in time for my niece's 1st birthday!
