Happy Halloween!

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.

As for the pizza, continue on for the recipe.

Stay safe this Halloween!  Continue reading
