Pizza and a Movie by the Sea
Dear blogging family,
It’s been a long journey these past months away from posting. After a very serious surgery and a long road to recovery, I feel so grateful to be cooking and blogging again- just in time to celebrate my favorite holiday at the beach with my family and on zoom with friends.
In my house, pizza is a must for Halloween. I have a simple yet tastey recipe for a caprese pizza that I love to make. The real question is what to watch tonight. We have our childhood favorites – ET, Hocus Pocus, Practical Magic, the Burbs, and Arachnophobia. As the night darkens and the tide roles in, by unanimous decision, The Fog wins. As for the pizza, continue on for the recipe.
Stay safe this Halloween!
