Overnight Deep Dish Pizza

I meant to share this pizza about a million years ago, but I think just in time for the weekend is as good a time as any. Here’s what I especially love about this baby–you can let the dough rise overnight in the fridge. Something about knowing that a dough is rising in the fridge, waiting for me to use it whenever the mood should strike, really brings me joy. It just makes everything sound easier.Β So, let’s all throw some dough in the fridge and eat this super duper delicious, maximally cheesy overnight deep dish pizza tomorrow!

Instant Pot Red Chili Chicken and Pinto Bean Burritos with Pico de Gallo

I was recently gifted an Instant Pot and it has opened up a whole new world of last minute dinner possibilities. You want shreddable chicken but you’re starving and in a hurry to watch This Is Us? Oh yeah, no problem! The Instant Pot is so user friendly that I took a mere cursory glance at the user manual and have the thing mastered (knock on wood… so far, so good!).

Baked Sweet Potato with Sausage, Crispy Kale and Roasted Garlic Sour Cream

I conceived the idea for this little baked sweet potato beauty a week ago, but I was so disheartened when I read this Bon Appetit articleΒ and discovered that sweet potatoes are on the list of food trends to end in 2017. Are we really done with sweet potatoes?! Also, sunchokes? I just discovered that those were a food! How could they have risen to such trendy heights and subsequently fallen out of trend just as I was flirting with the idea of eating one?! And now that I think of it, this dish also features kale, the food darling of 2015… I am so off trend. You now what’s not off trend? A dinner that’s easy, composed of real food, crave worthy and healthy-ish.
