What Would Betty Do Logo Pan Pizza

“Was It Supposed to Look Like Pizza Hut?” Well, no. The answer was most definitely no, but the appearance definitely gave me flashbacks to college. I suppose that when you combine cast iron, dough, sauce and cheese, there are a finite number of ways that things can look. I really like this pizza. It was […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Don’t Try This At Home, Part 3

Cauliflower Pizza Crust It started with the Paleo-dieters, the ones who eat nothing but bacon and eggs for breakfast — but no carbs! Never carbs! — but then ordinary everyday people in my social media feeds were posting various recipes for how to turn a head of cauliflower into a low-carb pizza crust. And I […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo A New Vehicle for Enchilada Sauce

Quinoa Enchilada Bake I love enchilada sauce. Possibly much more than normal people. So when my friend sent me this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod, naturally I had to try it. In order to make it kid-friendly, I eliminated the jalapeƱos and added the spice at serving with an array of hot sauces. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Don’t Try This at Home, Part 2

Egg and Biscuit Cups Remember last week when I talked about those trends where everyone seems to post the same recipes on Facebook and Pinterest at the same time? This is another one: the egg cups made with refrigerated biscuit dough, like this one, this one and this one. And while I’m not a big […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo What to Do With Your Zucchini Harvest

Kid-Friendly Zucchini Fritters I’m kind of surprised that I’ve never posted this one before, considering that I’ve made it half a dozen times. I came up with this recipe a few years ago when the school sent home a massive zucchini from the garden. What does someone do with a 3-foot zucchini? Fritters. Fritters are […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Coconut Waffles

Waffles + Coconut = Delicious It wasn’t until after we returned from Hong Kong that I learned that they make their street waffles with coconut milk. I’m seriously willing to hop on a 15-hour flight to go back and try that, but instead I just attempted my own. This is a minor modification of the […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Bringing Hong Kong Home

Homemade Potstickers While in Hong Kong, we ate close to our body weight in potstickers. Every night, we’d go to the Dragon Centre and eat our fill. By the time we got home, The Assistant was starting to go through withdrawals. I first tried making them with store-bought wonton wrappers, and you know what? They’re […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Ricotta Gnocchi

Homemade Gnocchi I can’t believe that it’s taken me so long to post this. Months ago, I made the homemade ricotta gnocchi from Bryn at Writes4Food. When I first made it, I was certain that the recipe was a complete failure. The mixture was more soup than dough! I was texting with a colleague in […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Clean-Out-the-Fridge Pasta

Chicken Apple Sausage Pasta We were heading out for our trip to Hong Kong and I needed to purge the fridge and pantry. I had a mishmash of things that didn’t really go together, and lacked a few key ingredients for regular family favorites. I had chicken apple sausages in the freezer, my go-to meat […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Blueberry Pies

Mini Blueberry Pies I had a free afternoon and picked up The Assistant earlier than usual. “Let’s make blueberry pies!” he shouted in a tone that implied that he had been thinking about this for some time. It’s not exactly blueberry season, but we always have an extensive supply of frozen blueberries on hand for […] Read More
