|Prosciutto, Mozzarella, and Basil Pizza|
A side note. Honestly, I did not read the last paragraph of this recipe until after I had already made the pizzas. I was not aware that you... pop them back into a 400 degree oven for a few minutes... to heat through or until the tuna is opaque. I would have eaten opaque tuna! I will be making these again using the tuna next time! A lesson to be learned here…always read a recipe through to the end! Happy Friday everyone!
This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook “Around My French Table” or here on Epicurious.
|A delicious lunch!|
|Rounds of the puff pastry|
|Easy and delicious!|
|A winner for sure!|
And now for the IFBC….
Almost three years ago, I joined a group of bloggers on a journey to cook through Dorie Greenspans cookbook, “Around My French Table”. Joining this group was definitely a stretch, out of my comfort zone. Yet it excited me. I had been reading food blogs for years and, baking was a passion. Who would have thought that, three years later, this group would have forged virtual friendships? Three years of visiting each other week after week, commenting on all those recipes, and getting everyone’s take on whatever we were cooking or baking that week. It has bonded us. We are the kindred spirits of the food world. We share a love for food, cooking and baking! We sang the praises of Marie Helene’s Apple Cake, and wondered about Salmon and Potatoes in a Jar (at least I did). We were there when Guyla welcomed her new grand baby. We shared the sadness when Mary lost her dear husband. We saw Liz, Cher, and Tricia send their teens off to college. We watched with interest and excitement as Betsy started raising her bees. Susan has gone through the government furlough. Alice has given birth to another lovely little girl, and made a move back to the U.S. from England. Trevor has taught us Haiku, and always keeps us laughing! In fact, he’s the one who coined the phrase “Dorista”. Adriana will be traveling the furthest (Puerto Rico). As for Nana, at 82 she just inspires me!
Well, after three years, some of us will be meeting for the first time on September 19, at the International Food Bloggers Conference in Seattle. It seems fitting, that Dorie Greenspan is our keynote speaker. She will also be making some time to meet with our little group of Doristas. Of course, this is really exciting. The planning started months ago, and finally we are down to the wire. The excitement is building! We are all looking forward to finally meeting each other, and Dorie. The IFBC is organized by Foodista.com and Zephyr Adventures, and was the first ever conference for food bloggers. It debuted in May of 2009. This year it will have over 300 bloggers in attendance. The conference focuses on three main themes: Food, Writing and Technology. There will be educational and informational sessions including food photography, cooking demos, technology seminars, writing and food sessions, and opportunities to network and promote your blog. I’m sure I will be bringing home some great ideas to make my blogging journey even more fun and exciting then it has already been! I will be posting more about our adventures in Seattle…so stay tuned for the fun!
