Life & Style Vegetable Pizza with Parmesan Scone Crust Vegetable Pizza with Parmesan Scone Crust
The idea for this recipe stems from one of my all-time favorite cookbooks, Biscuits and Scones, by Elizabeth Alston; it was a going-away to grad school present from a favorite aerobics class participant. It is petite perfection: 62 sweet and savory recipes, of which I have tried almost all (biscuits and scones fit well with a graduate student budget). Ms. Alston's accompanying prose is lively and informative, and the recipes are flawless.

I was never really meant to bartend. I bitterly became one because the real one never showed up to work. The real animosity comes from having to make ten lemon drops for a bunch of high-fiving babe magnets. To avoid displays of idiotic behavior such as this (the dudes And the lemon drops), here are some must-have starters for your home bar:
Life & Style Seattle, make your own Lynchburg Lemonade Seattle, make your own Lynchburg Lemonade

I was one of Rachael Ray's biggest fans when she first hit the broadcast cooking scene: her fresh and kicky spirit matched the colorful, quick and healthy dishes she seemed to turn out with little effort but loads of personality! This was one of the first recipes I tried from her ever-expanding collection, and it's still my 'go-to' version for delicious ahi at home. Her on-air presentation taught me how to cook it correctly (fast and hot!) so that it will be rare on the inside but seared brown and crisp on the outside. This recipe looks long and complicated, but it's so fast and easy...perfect for a busy weeknight. As she would say: DELISH!
