Life's Easy Pleasures - Shrimp Pizza & Chocolate Muffins
It is February and Valentine's Day is fast approaching so it seems like every food site is focused on chocolate. I do have a few very decadent, very delicious, very fattening options I could have chosen my own creation
But today, reading through my email... I found a recipe from Robin Hood Four that I had to try... mostly because I have buttermilk in the fridge, bought for some Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins - not chocolate, but so good and so easy to whip up. But I digress, the Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins , seen at the top of the post are wonderful. Perfect for a mid morning treat or... well... whenever the mood strikes.
So that's the CHOCOLATE part of the story. The reality is, as good as chocolate tastes and it even has lots of health benefits... particularly in terms of mood enhancement... we still need more variety in life.
Being more of a savory than sweet kind of girl, I love spicy and salty and, frankly when feeling hungry, I'd head for the fridge for some cold chicken or meat or maybe whip up a quick pizza like this one...
pizza dough from scratch, but recently I discovered some prebaked pizza crusts at the grocery store in the bread department and , while not exactly homemade, they certainly speed up the process and taste delicious.
The weekend is coming up, and after running lots of errands or whatever you do on the weekend... what is your favorite, easy to prepare sustenance?
