Recipe #81: Moroccan Roasted Carrots, Arugula & Wild Rice Salad

Recipe 81. Wow. This is the last recipe I will be posting from this cookbook. Like I mentioned when I first started this challenge, I did skip certain recipes like the alcoholic beverages and a few other things for various reasons. But for the 81 recipes completed, I have to say that this was an…

Recipe #80: Spicy Breakfast Fajitas with Fried Eggs & Guacamole

Many of the past 20ish recipes that I’ve made have been Mexican inspired.

Recipe #74: Crispy Kale Pizza with Marinara Sauce

I’m continuing the final stretch of cooking with this kale pizza. I’ve never thought of putting kale on a pizza, but it works surprisingly well. Combining delicious cheese pizza with crispy kale chips, which are both good on their own, somehow taste better together. This pizza uses the same dough as the heirloom tomato pesto…
