Breakfast Pizza & Cuisinart Pizza Swag Giveaway

Tailgating. The pregame for the big game. The moment when you dawn your teams colors before they square off at the battle front, and share a warm meal with your friends and enemies. The communal moment of a great meal before things get heated. Things are about to get really amped up, real quick. And i would hate to send you off to battle on an empty stomach. So, let me introduce you to your brand new tailgating secret weapon. Wait until you see the reaction when you whip this out. It’s like that scene with Tony Stark and Rhodey, […]

Thin-Crust Skillet Pizza for Two

Skillet_pizza_0357

Cooking for two is tough. Stupid tough. Everything is packaged either too big or too small. I feel like Goldilocks. Don’t get me wrong, we eat like champs around here and I’m not looking to make everything with tiny portions, but some nights we just need something for the two of us that doesn’t leave us dreading leftovers for the next few nights. Lately I have been trying to tie in a few more cooking for two recipes on the blog. Where I do love making big meals, these quick and easy date night dinners (and desserts) have been awesome. […]

Farm Country Grilled Pizza

Brace yourselves. It’s the last week of grill themed action packed calorie loaded fat kid Mondays here at Pass the Sushi. I know, I cried a little myself. But don’t worry, there’s a weekly online counseling program and an all new theme for Monday taking over that is just as good. Let’s be realistic, nothing is as good as a flame kissed perfectly seasoned burger, but it’s just about as good.

Waffle Pizzas and Celebrating My 200th Decline

Waffle_pizza_0080

Two years of ‘blogging’, 532 posts, and today we are classic up the joint with these waffle pizzas and celebrating my 200th decline from Foodgawker! Foodgawker, Tastespotting, Tasteologie and others are sites worth drooling over if you are looking for inspiration or just looking. They update a large selection of new recipe posts daily linking back to original recipes from bloggers like myself. Needless to say, I felt that 200 declined posts was a pretty monumental event in my food blogging career. Grab your party hats and kazoos so we can get party started. Recently Declined:     Now, I am […]

Personal Grilled Taco Pizzas

taco_pizza_0099

Today’s story has to be told, to get to tomorrows. After bragging about how much I love my job last week, I feel it is only fare to try to explain to you what being a part of the Captain Blue Hen family can be like. Some of you may be too young to remember a show called Cheers, so go wikipedia it. For the rest of you, you get exactly what I am saying. When you walk into our store, it is an extension of your living room. That level of comfort and friendship. We are the place everyone […]

Super Bowl Food: Pizza Nachos

pizza_nachos_14

Next weekend is the Super Bowl, where even people like myself who know little about sports, and less about football, gather around the television and are suddenly avid fans. Every year I pick a team, usually based on colors, ‘outfits’, hairstyles (I like the dudes with big bushy long hair that poofs out of the helmet), or something else as equally meaningless, and I root for them, until I get distracted and forget football is even on. Usually socializing or jamming more food in my pie hole, because the other great part to the Super Bowl, besides the commercials, is […]

Pizza to make angels sing: D’Lorenzo’s in Port Deposit MD

pizzaA

I bet you were expecting some fancy five star places when I mentioned I wanted to start writing reviews in 2012. Sure, there is a time and place for that, but if I’m being real with you, it’s not where we eat. So for my first review of 2012, I wanted to take you to a place that I visit probably more than I should admit. About two summers ago, Handsome’s parents told us we had to try a little pizza place in Port Deposit Maryland. A one road town built low into a cliff on the Chesapeake. The buildings are […]

Grilled Everything Pizza

grilled_pizza28

  I may have a new obsession this summer and it took me by surprise. Normally I get excited at the smell of smouldering charcoals and start to anticipate burgers, steaks, chops and other hearty meaty goodness – but this year I grilled my first pizza and there is no going back. I may love my pizza stone but once I clumsily laid that first dough on the grate my opinion was changed forever. Sure, dinner takes a little planning ahead so that you have time to prep your dough and let it rise, but once that’s done, everything comes […]

Quick Dinner Fixins: Bubble Up Pizza

bubbe_up_pizza16

New to Pass the Sushi? Don’t miss a moment of randomness! Follow on Facebook and Twitter. When you love to cook, it’s hard to remember that not every dish needs to be elegant, time consuming and complicated. Sometimes it’s about coming back to the basics – which is something I am guilty of. I like to put a nice meal on the table every night, so spending a few hours in the kitchen isn’t even something I blink at – but not everyone enjoys cooking the way I do (why you’d be reading a food blog and not enjoy cooking […]

They love it when we think we’re in charge

pizza

I have two of the most awesome cats in the world. They are unlike any other cats Ive ever know. They have the best personalities. I love that they never snub me and don’t scratch or bite *unless being played with.* They come when called, play fetch and are all around cute, adorable lights of my life. But some days… Some days their over aggressive awesome personalities drive me up a wall. Sewing machine + cat that must be in your lap = fail. Every time I put one down today the other popped into my lap. There was non-stop […]

Serenity Prayer

cookstips

I am a ‘doer.’ The type of person who doesn’t wait for anything else – if something needs to change, I change it. Its an amazing ability I poses that I have learned not everyone does. Some people just don’t change things. Or change things very very slowly. So, where I have not embraced my inability to pick up the universe it and change it, I am trying to be more accepting of the things I can change. I’m currently referring them to The Things I Can Do Something About in my daily inner narration. I can not pay myself […]
