Shaved Asparagus Pizza

I don’t have much to say about this asparagus pizza, except that it is delicious. I saw this recipe on Smitten Kitchen (obviously) and was immediately intrigued by the fact that it was tomato-free and involved shaved asparagus - which sounded both delicious and impressive. I love recipes like this that are incredibly simple but seem sophisticated…

This pizza is so yummy I've made it numerous times… despite the fact that it is no longer asparagus season, I indulged a friend’s request to try it, and it did not disappoint.

Happy Pizza-ing!

Felicia's Chocolate White Chip Cookies

Working at a preschool means eating a lot of cupcakes. It’s possible that KNS keeps the midtown Crumbs and Buttercup in business with all the birthdays and other celebrations at our school. Of course, I prefer to celebrate with home-made treats. My former co-teacher Felicia and I worked well together for many reasons. For one thing, she taught me the joys of color coordinating tacks and artwork. I swear my life, or at least my classroom, will never be the same… but on a food related note, she loves sweets as much as I do. After a little sneaky digging, I found out that she particularly loves chocolate white chip cookies, and Felicia’s birthday cookies were born… For the third year of these treats I decided to use a new recipe and the results were even more scrumptious. This recipe is simply the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe with added cocoa. Why mess with a good thing?

Happy Indulging!
