Last weekend I was working on some shrimp recipes for a project and when I mentioned the thought of shrimp pizza to the Taster he got a little excited. Before I knew it there were multiple topping ideas being tossed out, but in the end, we went with pesto (as the sauce), red onion, roasted red pepper, goat cheese and shrimp a top none other than my favorite sprouted tortilla.

It had been weeks since I had had my beloved tortilla pizzas and as soon as I realized they were no longer a thing of the past, I was the excited one.

This pizza concept would work on any crust, I also made it on some Middle Eastern Flatbreads for my cousin who I wasn’t sure how he would feel about the sprouted tortilla. For the record, he said he liked them both the same. :) Score for kids eating whole grains!

I love these pizzas vegetarian, but I must say that I’ve been slacking on protein lately, and I can definitely tell. So an added opportunity for some additional protein from the shrimp is a score for a healthy adult!

daily eats: 9/13/11

I’m officially in the midst of wedding-week madness. But besides a minor breakdown on Friday (it was just a very emotional day) I think I’ve been handling everything pretty well. Others may disagree. Yesterday was filled with last minute errands and I declared it a day for myself! The day started with some coffee and

Monday started like most – with a yoga class. But then the similarities ended. It was a long day of traveling. I had my last work trip and so I’m currently down south in the land of shrimp and grits. For the record, I’m only allowing myself one meal of grits – do you know

We finally got to Masu Sushi & Robata. It has been quite the hot spot since it opened a few months ago and I’ve been pretty anxious to get there – mainly because of their Pork Belly Ramen. The decor is amazing. It’s fun and interesting, hip and each wall has something interesting for your

grilled lake trout recipe

grilled lake trout

Living in the land of 10,000 lakes, we should probably be a little more familiar with trout. In fact, we should probably be out at one of those lakes catching our own trout. But can you really imagine the Taster and I fishing? (Hmmm, I’d probably have my laptop, or at least the tablet so

Wednesday 6.8.11 6:25 am: Realize I’ve overslept. Ugh. Roll out of bed and head downstairs for a quick, but intense 30 minutes on the elliptical. Thank the weather gods that it is no longer 103° and humid, I like to save those temps for hot yoga. Stop by Caribou for daily coffee + coconut creamer…where

grilled shrimp & bbq sauce

I recently cleaned out all of my “stuff” for our move, just to another floor in the building, but I love this purging of everything excess – shoes, clothes, old kitchen goods and a very large stack of recipes. Some of these recipes were my old “favorites” before the idea of photographing and blogging about food had
