How can I be sad when I have breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Strawberry Pizza

January 29, 2019 2:09 PM

I really like How Sweet Eats. Jessica Merchant just posts so many interesting recipes. During my food blog browsing I came across Strawberry Pizza with Bacon and Caramelized Onions.

We're trying to conserve electricity by only having the kitchen light on.

Which sounded real intriguing. I looked at the ingredients and I like pretty much everything that she put on the pizza. Of course I also scrolled through the comments to make sure someone actually tried it and gave it a good review.

It's kind of making the pictures have awkward lighting though.

Making anything involving dough kind of scares me, but my sister is great with dough so I had to make this while she's here. Plus strawberries were on sale!

My sister calls this contraption a "pastry wheel".

It was delicious. If I ever make it again, I'd need to make note of a couple of things.

Concluding with a super artsy shot of a single slice pulled out of the pizza slightly.

Chili with Chocolate Ice Cream

January 29, 2019 5:00 AM

That's right. I saw this Fire and Ice Chili recipe from How Sweet Eats, and I was so intrigued by the fact that she put chocolate ice cream in her chili.

You can't tell in this photo, but I could not stop crying from that onion.

I actually looked for dark chocolate ice cream in three different grocery stores, but I couldn't find it until I went to Whole Foods. And then I spent a whole $9 (!!!) for a Haagen Dazs-sized thing of Jeni's ice cream, which is ridiculous.

Okay, but I gotta admit, Jeni makes pretty good ice cream.

Dropping a scoop of chocolate into the pot of chili
Yeah, a scoop of ice cream in a pot of chili is not the most eye-pleasing thing.

A very full pot of chili
It was thiiiiis close to overflowing.

This was a really interesting tasting chili. It was sweeter and less tomato-y than I'm used to, but I liked it. Not sure I'll ever make it again though, mostly because it took two hours, and that ice cream was stupid expensive.

But if I ever see it on sale, I'm totally trying the coffee flavor.
