So, the Chicken Piccata was a huge hit!  I thought that I would share with you another equally delicious dish. Again it can be a crowd pleaser with the kids; minus the sauce that is.  I typically serve this with mashed potatoes but pasta works just as well.  Even if you are not a big…

Do you ever have those days when you don’t feel like cooking?  Here is something that I make on those kinds of days. I love this pizza.  It reminds me of California.  This my take on one of my favorite pizzas at California Pizza Kitchen.  It is so easy and delicious.  Pick-up an extra pizza dough for the kids…
