Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Pizza

Every Last Crumb Review + Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Pesto Pizza

I was perusing Instagram one night when I happened to see a post from @brittany_angell asking food bloggers to identify themselves. I hardly consider myself a food blogger — updating once a week is lucky for me, and my lack of DSLR makes my pictures fall short of my own standards. But, I like sharing recipes, and it’s something to do in my free time. So I commented on the post, identifying myself as a novice food blogger.

To my amazement, @brittany_angell herself commented on one of my pictures, telling me she loves my blog name and wanted to send me an advance copy of her book, Every Last Crumb: Paleo Bread and Beyond! Starstruck, I almost squealed like a child. And that doesn’t happen often. In case you didn’t know, Brittany Angell is a gluten free baking genius…probably most popular for her insane paleo crispy waffle recipe.

Although I was never asked to review the cookbook, after receiving this stunning piece of work I feel like it’s necessary. I’ll just jump right into it!

Ginger Butternut Squash Soup

 

Hey look! A recipe that isn’t a baked good or dessert! This is a big deal!

Of course, dessert isn’t the only thing I eat. However, most of my meals are so basic they aren’t worth sharing a recipe for. But, this Ginger Butternut Squash Soup is an exception. Creamy, popping with spicy ginger, and using one of the world’s best squashes as a base, this soup is definitely worth making.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers

Spicy Shrimp

I made this shrimp for my first grill-out of the summer.  How weird is it that it’s almost mid-July and I’ve only grilled once?  Well, I don’t have my own grill and I’ve been working an overnight shift, so it’s kind of hard to find people to grill with.  But I finally managed it, and I made some bomb spicy shrimp.  I’m just glad I wrote down this impromptu recipe so I could share it!

First, I’m going to get a little emotional up in here.

Hearty Beef Stew

I like smiling.  Smiling is great.

Life has been great.  I’m still unsatisfied with my job and looking for something new, but there’s not much I can complain about (except for the ever-growing stack of dishes in my sink).  It’s just great when you can take a look at your life and really feel like you’re on the right path.  I can look at myself in the mirror and smile, and not feel like I’m forcing a smile.  I certainly don’t have everything figured out yet.  But dang, what I do have is pretty good.

Okay, enough of that.  On to the recipe!
