Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
This was a hearty lentil soup, overall I'd absolutely add it to the bi-weekly menu. I'd change just a few things.. 1. Use whole (canned) tomatoes, instead of crushed. I personally like my tomatoes to be something I can bite into and know I'm eating it. 2. Increase the amount of celery to 3 and decrease the carrot to 2, or just buy smaller carrots. 3. I added bacon (5 pieces, diced) and that added a smoky flavor that hit the spot. But, I needed to add water to reduce the saltiness of the soup. Plus, I like my broth-based soups with a good amount of broth. Excellent soup base, you can dress it up or down for your taste, def should be added to your recipe box if you like savory and lentils.

Grilled Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
The dough recipe is on point! Since we ran out of gas I popped these in the oven at 375 instead. Same process, cook on one side till 75% done, remove, flip, add toppings and bake till "done". In my opinion, the dough should be rolled out to a very thin consistency, that's how you achieve a thin and crispy crust. I used Hunts Tomato Paste w/basil, garlic and oregano and that is what really made these things pop. Also, we had extra dough, so we rolled it out into a big rectangle, pressed a knife into the dough to create "breadsticks", drizzled olive oil, rubbed minced garlic all over and topped with cheese. Awesome with the tomato paste too!
