Boise Food

Courtney, Kris and I recently had a girls weekend in Boise. Basically, that means we went shopping and ate well. We tried to go to Brick 29 Bistro for lunch in Nampa, and they were closed. We were so bummed. … Continue reading

Another lunch option…

Yummerz. Whitey and I left work together to hit the grocery store and find some lunch recently. We rarely go out to eat because we work so much, and our schedules overlap. After our shopping trip, we decided to try … Continue reading

Hello Deliciousness!

Name that pizza! No sauce, just the sauteed juices from the protein which was done in a skillet with pure butter, garlic, and salt with a splash of (unbelievably thick & gorgeous) port wine. Whole-milk mozzarella and thinly-diced green onions … Continue reading

To char or not to char?

These are small slices of our Red Potato pizza. They’re from the same crew pie, only the one on top was put into the oven for a little longer, to get a nice char on the bottom. I love the … Continue reading

It’s hot… Holy hot!

For Juan’s birthday, I made a beautiful Chicken Enchilada pizza and bought habanero peppers to put on top of it. He smiled when I pulled them out of the walk-in, and I then asked if he eats them whole. “Si,” … Continue reading

Baby Lobsters

A regular patron of Paizano’s (and SIL of one of our front gals) brought me dinner recently. She caught them in Haines, and had a big ol’ crawfish boil at her house. She brought me some of these succulent little … Continue reading

That’s just nuts!

“I can’t believe you charge for extra nuts,” she said, arms crossed and lips pursed. “I wasn’t charged the last time I was here.” At a measly dollar for an extra 2 ounces of toasted pinenuts, she probably didn’t realize … Continue reading

Tempting your Tastebuds

Lately, I’ve been on an anchovy kick. Normally, you couldn’t pay me to eat these things, but about a month ago I tried one yet again and surprisingly, I didn’t spit it out. I ate another. And another. The saltiness … Continue reading

Different strokes for different folks

“I can’t believe you serve moldy cheese,” he said to Freebird when she asked how everything was. “That’s gorgonzola,” she replied. “It’s blue cheese crumbles. If you’d like, I can bring you a new salad without gorgonzola on it.” She … Continue reading

The Great Ranch Debate

It happens every day. Someone will order a slice of pizza, pay for it, and sit down. When we deliver the slice, they’ll say “Can I get a side of ranch?” (first of all, no. you can’t. dipping your slice … Continue reading

Catering like a pro

We had our third large catering gig this weekend, and besides a few minor hiccups, it went off smoothly. These things exhaust me, though. The prep involved, the to-do lists, the timing of everything has to be incredibly accurate, otherwise … Continue reading

Let’s a Make a Pizza

Our pies are big. Really big. Learning to toss one of these enormous dough balls into a thin, perfectly proportioned circle of heaven takes time and patience. A tad of OCD helps, too. Let’s begin. Lightly flour your paddle and … Continue reading
