Life-Changing Crispy Fried Pizzas

Never underestimate the power of warm creamy tomato-balsamic soup, soft bread, and melted cheese. Specifically the bread and cheese part. But as much as I would love to dedicate this entire post to bread and cheese, I must move on to the only thing I actually made here. The soup. But please note how well this soup complements warm bread and melted cheese, and how cute all of it looks in a handmade mug? Lucky for you, there’s more [...]

The Food You Need to Be Trying at Target Field This Summer

Oh hi there. Meet my golden brown panini of melted Muenster cheese, turkey, cranberries, crisped sage, pear slices, goat cheese, and bacon. No but seriously. THAT JUST HAPPENED.
