Buffalo Shrimp Pizza - Shake up pizza night with this weeknight-easy recipe! Buffalo shrimp, celery, two kinds of cheese and ranch dressing = flavors the whole family will love. | foxeslovelemons.com

It seems a little crazy, but it’s been almost three years since I last shared a pizza on this blog. What?!? Pizza is frequently on our menu at home, usually as a vehicle to use up extra odds and ends hanging out in the fridge. Often, these leftover ingredients are from two or three recipes I’ve made for work, resulting in one big Frankenpizza.

But some weeks, there aren’t odds and ends in the fridge, and I decide to actually, you know, plan out a pizza idea. This Buffalo Shrimp Pizza is my newest creation, and I hope you’ll love it as much as my husband and I did.

Since I’m a culinary school graduate, it may seem strange that I still jump at the chance to attend a cooking class. But, I’m a person who just loves learning, and I believe that any class will lead me to grow and evolve in the kitchen in a way that I wouldn’t without that experience. So, ask me to take a pie baking class before Thanksgiving? Sign me up. Does your sister’s girlfriend’s Italian grandpa want to teach me how to make his famous risotto? I’ll be over in a jiffy, with a bottle of wine.

Watermelon & Avocado Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing http://foxeslovelemons.com/watermelon-salad-bacon-dressing/ http://foxeslovelemons.com/watermelon-salad-bacon-dressing/#respond Mon, 19 Jun 2017 10:00:23 +0000 http://foxeslovelemons.com/?p=21579 I think I’ve told you this before, but growing up, sprinkling a little salt on watermelon was automatic. Expected. It’s just the way watermelon was eaten in our household. Without the salt, even the best watermelon tastes bland and flat to me. It’s just the way my taste buds have been trained. So to me, […]

Watermelon and Avocado Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing - An irresistible sweet and savory summer salad! Butter lettuce, watermelon, avocado and peanuts are topped with an easy warm bacon dressing. | foxeslovelemons.com

I think I’ve told you this before, but growing up, sprinkling a little salt on watermelon was automatic. Expected. It’s just the way watermelon was eaten in our household. Without the salt, even the best watermelon tastes bland and flat to me. It’s just the way my taste buds have been trained. So to me, watermelon has always leaned toward the savory end of the spectrum vs. being served as a sweet, dessert-like fruit, if that makes sense.

In particular, all manner of fermented and pickled things, and anything that packs an umami punch. Umami is a fifth basic taste – alongside sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.

Let’s talk about funk, as it pertains to food. In particular, all manner of fermented and pickled things, and anything that packs an umami punch. Umami is a fifth basic taste – alongside sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. The Japanese word translates to “savoriness,” and it’s sometimes described as “meaty” or “earthy,”  but I most closely associate it with “funky.” Umami is naturally present in things like beef, pork, tomatoes, mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, miso, kimchi, soy sauce and edible seaweed.

If you had told me back in 2008 (or whenever I first bought a bottle of sriracha, I can’t remember), that I would still be eating it (and eating a lot of it) in 2017, I might not have believed you. At the time it first started to gain popularity in the U.S., it certainly seemed, at least to me, like something that would be passing fad.

Easy Churro Cracker Snacks - With just 10 minutes and 5 ingredients, you can create this simple, delectable sweet treat! | foxeslovelemons.com

Do you guys watch “Better Call Saul”? While “Breaking Bad” is definitely one of my favorite shows of all time (I’ve watched it all the way through three or four times now), it took me a little while to warm up to the spinoff. Unlike a lot of “Breaking Bad” fans, Saul Goodman was actually never one of my favorite characters. Sure, he provided a bit of comic relief in what could otherwise be a pretty dark show, but I also found him annoying. So, when my husband was excited for “Better Call Saul,” I wasn’t so much. He watched the first season while I glanced at magazines and catalogs, and it was saul good, man <— see what I did there?

People sometimes comment about how colorful my Instagram feed is. And sometimes I do browse through it, and I’m almost blinded by the amount of color I see. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. My husband and I eat meals comprised of mainly fresh, unprocessed foods, which includes lots of lots of fresh vegetables, some fruits, and eggs. And by nature, those things are just . . . very colorful.
