I love making my own pesto at home. From Walnut Sage to traditional Basil to Kale Pesto, I’m kind of a pesto fanatic!

Homemade pesto is so much better than store bought and it’s easy to make in just 5 minutes. It’s so incredibly flavorful, I promise after one bite you’ll be hooked on making your own pesto too!

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto has a sweeter taste than pesto made from greens. I love this recipe on a variety of dishes. Try it on a sandwich or panini! Add it to this Portobello Caprese Sandwich for a fun low carb meal.

It’s also great on pizza or pasta. I’ve used it in these recipes for Mini Polenta Pizzas and Vegetarian Pesto Tortellini.

It’s flavorful enough, that you can simply toss it with penne pasta and top it with a little fresh grated parmesan cheese for an easy meal, made in less than 15 minutes!

Hawaiian Pizza with Sriracha Pizza Sauce

Delicious Hawaiian Pizza is easy to make at home! This recipe is topped with a scrumptious homemade Sriracha Pizza Sauce that will instantly become a new family favorite!

Pizza might just be the greatest food ever created. It’s carbs, sauce and cheese, plus a variety of delicious toppings all combined in one dish!

Starting a pizza recipe with a delicious dough and scrumptious sauce is the key to a great pizza. I love experimenting making different pizza sauces. The Three Cheese Jalapeno Ranch sauce that I created for this Jalapeno Sausage Pizza is an all time favorite. But this Sriracha Pizza Sauce is now tied for first!

Growing up, one of my favorite pizza restaurants in Oklahoma was Hideaway Pizza. I would always order their “Maui Magic”, a pizza topped with pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and Canadian bacon.

This recipe is my adaptation of that delicious pizza! In this version, I added homemade Sriracha pizza sauce and swapped out the Canadian bacon for prosciutto.

The spiciness of the sriracha pizza sauce pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the pineapple and mandarin oranges. If mandarin oranges on a pizza is just too weird for you, they can always be left off. Already have ham at home? Use that in place of the prosciutto.

But for the love of Sriracha, take a little time before preparing the pizza to make this sriracha pizza sauce! The recipe makes enough for 3 pizzas. Save extra sauce in the fridge or freezer to make delicious pizzas over and over!

I love pesto! All different kinds of pesto, sun dried tomato pesto, basil pesto and kale pesto!

I love tossing pesto with tortellini, stuffing it in chicken and adding it to potato salad.

The best part about pesto is how you can make an easy, flavorful meal with it in less than 30 minutes. I combined kale pesto with pasta, sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese to make this easy pesto spaghetti recipe in just 15 minutes!

I’ve made this recipe with both traditional spaghetti and corn spaghetti, to make the recipe gluten free. Both versions work great!

Rosemary Focaccia Bread

Baking homemade rosemary focaccia bread is easy, fun and delicious! This Italian bread recipe can be served as a side or appetizer. Or slice it up to make a delicious sandwich!

There’s really nothing better than the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven!

I love to bake up a couple loaves of rosemary focaccia bread on the weekend. One is served with Sunday family dinner, usually with Beef Ragu or Creamy Tortellini Soup.

And I save the other loaf for making sandwiches throughout the week. I mean, you could eat Rosemary Tri Tip French Dip Sandwiches on another type of bread. But why would you want to?

My Dad has been making this easy focaccia bread recipe for years. He always makes extra loaves to share with coworkers, friends and neighbors. It’s one of the most requested recipes he makes. Well, that and his Famous Captain Crunch Fried Chicken, of course!

Gluten Free General Tso’s Chicken

Gluten Free General Tso Chicken is easy to make in only 20 minutes! This recipe is healthy & even better than Chinese takeout with the most delicious General Tso sauce!

In the blogging world, I’d say that I’m most known for my recipes with buffalo sauce. But coming in at a close second are my gluten free Chinese recipes!

Around the same time I started blogging, my brother was diagnosed with celiac disease. He asked me to recreate some of his Chinese food favorites to make them gluten free.

Being the wonderful sister that I am (haha!) I obliged and created some of his favorite recipes. This Gluten Free Orange Chicken is his all-time favorite. But these recipes for Gluten Free Honey Chicken and Gluten Free General Tso Chicken, both come in at a close second!

Typically, general tso’s consists of battered, deep fried chicken thighs, covered in hoisin sauce. I made this recipe healthy and gluten free by lightly pan frying the chicken, instead of deep frying it. I also used chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs.

Chicken breast meat is lower in calories and fat, creating a healthier dish. I switched up the general tso sauce recipe to give it a similar taste to hoisin without the gluten.

The sauce is slightly spicy and so delicious! It’s so good that I’ve also used it to make General Tso’s Vegetarian Noodle Stir Fry and General Tso’s Chicken Wings.

You can actually double, or triple, the sauce ingredients in this recipe. Keep the extra sauce on hand to make more chicken, noodle stir fry or chicken wings throughout the week. The sauce will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
