New York Pizza

Pizza comes in many forms, the best of which is New York pizza: thin crispy-but-foldable crust, a little sauce, a little more cheese and some drip-on-your hand grease. Yum. It's really hard to find pizza like that in California. And believe me, MO and I have been searching since we moved here. Here's a shout out to one of our favorite pizza places around, aptly named The New Yorker.

The New Yorker is located in downtown Petaluma. They also have a variety of Italian specialities, all of which look good, but we always get the pizza. And usually a green salad (not much more than lettuce, but with the yummy house dressing, its perfect for holding you over while you're waiting for your pizza).

Magical Minty Ice Cream Cake

I'm back!!! It's not that I haven't been eating and drinking and cooking - but (with the weddings, traveling, birthdays, and other stuff), I've just been too busy to post anything. But now I am back because I had to tell you all about the delicious ice cream cake I made for MO's birthday. It had a chocolate cookie crumb crust, a layer of cookies n' cream ice cream and a layer of mint chocolate chip, topped with ganache and more cookie crumbs...yum!
I have to give props to this blog I found with a very easy to follow recipe for ice cream cake. Their ice cream cake is much prettier than mine and I haven't gotten to the homemade ice cream level yet, but there's always next time.
