Buffalo Cauliflower Blue Cheese Pizza

Buffalo Cauliflower Blue Cheese Pizza by Alison's AllspiceI spend a fair amount of time over on pinterest looking at recipe ideas and getting inspired by other bloggers.  Buffalo pizza’s caught my eye there because I love all things buffalo.  Reviewing recipes, I noticed that the sauce you can use on a buffalo pizza varies quite greatly.  Some people use the buffalo sauce as a base, but that means every bite is is loaded with spice and their is no relief from the heat.  Some recipes use bottled ranch dressing, but I didn’t like the sound of that either.  I developed my buffalo cauliflower blue cheese pizza with a homemade blue cheese pizza sauce!

Holiday Butternut Pecan Salad with Berry Vinaigrette

Holiday Butternut Pecan Salad with Berry Vinaigrette by Alison's AllspiceIn early September, I visited a small Italian cafe for lunch.  They had a pumpkin ravioli and butternut squash salad on special that I tried and loved!  The salad came topped with cold ravioli, and a mixed berry vinaigrette on the side.  I loved all the fall flavors, and the colors reminded me of the holidays.  This months recipe redux theme was to create “naturally-colored/naturally-dyed holiday fare.”  When I recreated this holiday butternut pecan salad with berry vinaigrette, I knew it was perfect for the redux!

Peach Basil Pizza with Balsamic Drizzle

Peach Basil Pizza with Balsamic Drizzle by Alison's AllspiceThis pizza is one of my favorites.  Pizza is on regular rotation at my house, and it is always something special, like this peach basil pizza with balsamic drizzle.  It is loaded with fresh summer flavors; we simply can’t get enough!  I love to incorporate fresh seasonal ingredients on pizza.  The peach is juicy and along with the balsamic drizzle, there is plenty of moisture so you don’t need any sauce.  Top with melty cheese and some fresh herbs, you’ll be eating it all summer long!

Buffalo Blue Cheese Vegetarian Taquitos

Buffalo Blue Cheese Vegetarian Taquitos by Alison's AllspiceThese buffalo blue cheese vegetarian taquitos were created completely on a whim.   Oftentimes I buy a few extra ingredients that aren’t on my grocery list at the store, simply because they are on sale. One night when I needed a quick weeknight meal, I riffled through the fridge and found some 6-inch tortillas, so I whipped up these taquitos .  I had seen a vegan buffalo taquitos pin on pinterest and thought it looked like a fantastic idea, but I hadn’t even look at the recipe. As it turned out, my version is loaded with tangy blue cheese, as well as a healthy does of vegetables! Continue reading

Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Veggie Bacon

Blue Cheese Wedge Salad with Veggie Bacon

I love to eat salads at restaurants.  They are always so much more indulgent than the salads I tend to make at home.  After trying blue cheese wedge salad at many restaurants,  I couldn’t resist remaking the recipe at home.  This salad recipe is made with iceburg lettuce.  This is the only time I use iceburg in my kitchen.  Other lettuces don’t hold up to my standards for a wedge.  The crispness and texture are perfect, and I can indulge in my blue cheese obsession.  The only true down side to iceburg lettuce is that it is not nutritious like other leafy greens.

Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing

Some girls are over the moon chocolate fans.  Or they swoon over a slice of decadent cake, or a soft and chewy cookie.  I’m not that well acquainted with my sweet tooth.  It’s there, but when I crave something indulgent, it is usually savory.  This blue cheese dressing comes to the rescue for me.  Sharp, salty and creamy, and all the more, ready and waiting to dress a salad or dunk a veggie stick! Yum! Continue reading

Black and Blue Veggie Burger

Black and blue is a flavor combination that is hard to beat!  Tangy blue cheese and spicy blackening season complement each other so well, it is a classic combination.  Before I started to focus on whole foods, I would put blackening seasoning and blue cheese on frozen burgers.  This homemade black and blue veggie burger is so much better, and better for you!Black and Blue Veggie Burger Continue reading

Cracker Crust Pizza

Hello Friends!  This is another recipe fantastic for football season!  Some thin crust pizzas lack in crust texture. You get a slice and it flops in your hand.  The flavor is all there, but that’s just because you have a delivery service for ooey-gooey cheese.  This pizza crust is thin and crispy, the best of both worlds!
