The Best Mushroom Pizza


Let’s make some delicious mushroom pizza! I recently spent several days with my friends at California Grown visiting farms (including a mushroom farm) along the Monterey coastline and learning about innovative farming methods that California farmers are employing to keep California, and the US, fed and it was a beautiful, delicious trip! About this Mushroom Pizza Most mushroom pizzas go for…

Best Pizza & Sauce Recipe + CA Agritour


This was my second year participating in the CA Grown Agritour. Last year, we met up in Santa Barbara and toured a bunch of local farms and ag businesses and sampled everything from passionfruit and tomatoes to wine and cheese. You can read more about the trip here and get my recipe for Cherry Jam Streusel Muffins. This year, we had…

There are soooo many more (more pumpkin stuff, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin gnocchi, scones, etc etc etc)…but I narrowed it down to a reasonable list for you. Will this become a…

Marinated Olive Beer-Crusted Pizza | Recipe via DisplacedHousewife Rebecca Firth

Marinated Olive Beer-Crust Pizza


First, let me say that I’m using the phrase ‘marinated olive’ very lightly in the title of this Marinated Olive Beer-Crust Pizza. When CA Grown sent me olives to futz around with for this post, I had several ideas. The first one was to create olives like my favorite sweet-hot peppers (that I love on pizza) which sounded fun in…

Pesto Pine Nut Pizza


Before I get into this Pesto Pine Nut Pizza (and how much I love alliteration), let’s just talk about pesto, shall we? There is a lot of hub bub about grinding your homemade pesto in a mortar and pestle instead of using a food processor to sort the situation out quickly. I’m here to tell you it’s fine either way.…

Lemony Brussels Sprout Pignoli Pizza


Man oh MAN have I had some pizza cravings lately. And this combination of flavors has been my current go-to: bright bursts of lemon zest, slightly charred and crispy Brussels sprouts, bitter radicchio and toasted bits of pignolis (aka Diamond of California pine nuts). Sometimes I’ll add prosciutto (which is heaven) and other times sun-dried Kalamata olives (which I can’t…

Savory Truffle Mustard Knots


{This post is sponsored by Maille} I hope you have lots of festive occasions coming up this month and if so, I have the perfect holiday appetizer to share with you. I use one of my favorite doughs as a base (it’s a brioche dough with eggs and butter and lots of richness) and then fold in Parmesan, fresh thyme…

Squash Blossom + Tomatillo Brunch Eggs


Totally flummoxed as to what to call this thing. It’s not a frittata because it’s not cooked like a frittata…but it seems to be a very close cousin to one. I don’t want to use the words casserole or bake because for some reason that feels a little like I’m cooking from the back of a carton of egg substitute.…

Burrata Squash Blossom Beer-Crusted Pizza


You guys, I just started a bi-weekly show with the feedfeed called SPLURGE and I’m so excited about it! Each month will be themed (the theme for July is yeast-based treats) and will deal with both sweet and savory baked recipes. This recipe was for my first episode, which I will link to as soon as it is up on…

Portuguese Soup With Crispy Prosciutto + Manchego Toast


I wanted to create a soup that was Caldo Verde adjacent, with potatoes and kale and sausage, but I wanted (NEEDED) more of a clear soup rather than creamy. So I set out to use all of the key Caldo Verde players: Portuguese sausage (I offer several substitutions below if you can’t find it), loads of kale and potatoes. Then thoughts…

Spicy Sausage + Burrata Penne Pasta | Recipe via DisplacedHousewife | super quick + easy midweek dinner

Italian Sausage + Burrata Penne Pasta


This penne pasta comes together so quickly that it could easily be a mid-week, just-got-home-from-work dinner. But it also has a ton of Sunday supper potential. This sauce, sitting on the stove, going low and slow and filling the house with lots of warm basil and tomato smells. Yes…that’s the kind of Sunday I want to have. This penne pasta…

Strawberry Freekah Salad With Pistachio-Crusted Goat Cheese


Guys, you need to get on the freekah bandwagon. It’s delicious. I was skeptical. I mean REALLY skeptical. But it’s amazing. When it comes to salads, I need them loaded. I mean, I need every flipping bite teeming with taste and texture. We have that here. Right now. With this salad. We start with a base of freekah. Then we…

Burrata Caprese Burgers With Lemon Basil Aïoli


Holy moly. These Caprese burgers. Like a late summer farmer’s market collided with your local Italian butcher. All the best summer flavors (heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil leaves), a thick meaty-burger fortified with egg yolk and finely grated parmesan, an oozy layer of burrata and a bright pop of flavor from the lemon-basil aïoli. And the bacon rounds, let’s not…

Breakfast Nachos


We take our nacho game very seriously around here. We eat them for dinner, as a snack…basically any time we have an excuse to shove them in our mouths. Last summer we were lounging around and Gavin wanted nachos. I said ‘everyone, stop what you’re doing and follow me into the kitchen.’ I told them I would be oh-so-proud if…

Easy Peasy Labneh


The thought of making cheese never entered my mind. In fact, making this type of cheese (labneh) seems somewhat fraudulent…like it really isn’t cheese…but it is…and it’s so amazingly luscious and delicious you will never not (love a double negative) have it in your fridge. At all times. It’s true, I like to dazzle people with food. I like it to…

Pour Me a Martini Pizza


I realize we’re not officially in summer, but it’s here at our house. The kids have been out of school for several weeks and it’s a revelation. The lightness and joy that has descended upon our home is nothing short of bliss. Pure, peaceful, bliss. We’re going to bed late and sleeping in. We’re eating quesadillas, playing legos in the living…
