Major Stuff Happening

by Courtney on September 20, 2011

We had some major stuff happening in the kitchen tonight, folks. Yes, it was in the kitchen, so if you decided to check out this post because I reeled you in with my “major stuff happening” title, than I succeeded. But no worries, because now that you’re reading, that means that you’re making out pretty good, too. Here’s why:

Remember that ‘ol pizza dough that I shared with you all this afternoon? It has yet to disappoint me, after yielding two amazing pizza recipes, so I was rather excited to get my hands on today’s dough and take it from this…


to THIS…



All I can say is thank goodness for Cooking Light magazine. It always seems to come at just the right time, when my cooking mojo is on its very last leg.


I came across their recipe for Chicken and Herb White Pizza last week but decided that today would be the day to make my version. I mean, c’mon…I had Trader Joe’s pizza dough to use.


So I’m just going to go ahead and share the recipe with you all because I love you…and because I want to go grab another piece of it right now.


I started out by enjoying two pieces for tonight’s dinner, but that’s because I could only fit two comfortably on my plate; I most definitely went back for a third.


And I enjoyed every last bite.


Thank you again, Cooking Light, for giving me my dinner mojo back. You’ve certainly saved me on more than one occasion…

Chicken Souvlaki Pitas with Tahini Sauce

Broiled Herb-Marinated Shrimp Skewers

So Good Shredded Chicken Tacos

Spice Rubbed Flank Steak with Fresh Salsa

Grilled King Salmon with Tomato-Peach Salsa

Thank You Pizza

…and I have no doubt you’ll be saving me again. Quite possibly tomorrow. Winking smile

Wow, that looks insanely delicious. You’re making me rethink my decision to cancel all my food magazines! They were just overwhelming me and would end up in a pile with a million dog earred pages and not enough time to make them all!
