My camera got a lot of action this weekend, both in the iHeartFaces Atlanta Photo Walk and in the kitchen. Friday was National Doughnut Day, and although my family snickered and insisted it wasn’t a real holiday, I thought it was a mighty fine excuse to try Rachel’s doughnut holes recipe.


Saturday night we had homemade pizza. I have pizza crust recipes that take some time before the dough rises, but this recipe that I downloaded from ’06 is ready in a snap. I love seeing bloggers like Sandra that started about the same time as I did and are still here. 🙂 My husband is diabetic and I try not to make my crust too thick, so I take the recipe for a single pizza times one-and-a-half for two pizzas.

The first pizza was barbecue chicken (am I the only one who wants to put a “q” in barbecue? It’s not there. Trust me.), and the second was a white pizza with fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, fresh pressed garlic, and sliced tomatoes from our local produce stand.




[I’m inserting a note here about the Parmigiano-Reggiano: I know it’s crazy expensive—I think I pay over $12 a pound—but it’s a very dense, hard cheese and lasts a good while, both in freshness and use. We grate it for pizza toppings, over pasta, and mostly in Alfredo sauce, where it truly shines.]
