‘The Wedgie’ Revisited

In my early college years at IUP, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, there was this little pizza shop called Romeo’s within walking distance of campus that we loved to frequent. The most popular item on the menu and something I had never heard of before was…’The Wedgie’. It was a pizza and a hoagie combined. I shared a Wedgie recipe back in 2015 but for today’s post I decided to make it with the new store bought Cauliflower Crust Pizzas that are in the frozen section at my local grocery store.

Pepperoni & Cheese Soft Pretzels: Revisited


Linda’s post put me in mind of a previous blog I did in January of 2017. And… Since it is tax season again, I am back to catering to all the employees at my Hubby’s firm on Fridays. They work so hard and I love to spoil them, so this Friday I will make a new version along with a hearty soup and share next week… but here is the previous blog post from 2017…

I sometimes get the hankering for a good homemade soft pretzel. Today I made them a little different. I added pepperoni and cheese!!! Serve with some cheese dip and a little marinara and you have pizza in a pretzel. You can also make little bite size pieces which would be great for your upcoming Super Bowl Party!!”

Baked Crispy Calamari

Baked Crispy Calamari 1

Now it’s something we just make at home. It’s a way to ensure you’re getting just what you want. It doesn’t matter what you eat it with, but I served ours with an Orzo Florentine. Enjoy a super satisfying and super healthy way to have your Calamari and eat it too! Continue reading
