This Bird Dog Pizza recipe is the basic Bird Dog recipe in pizza form. The Bird Dog pizza is also available from a local pizza restaurant. It’s our son’s favorite one to order. He orders it every single time we get take out, and every single time I sort of cringed thinking how odd it must be. That is until I tried it myself during that one very satisfying homemade pizza night a couple of weeks ago. No more cringing from me. No sirree bobtail. I couldn’t believe how unbelievable the combination was in pizza form. We were all fighting for the last piece.
One of the great things about this snack recipe is that all the ingredients can be kept stocked in your fridge so you’re ready to go if a crowd of hungry teens happens to drop by, or if a last-minute occasion pops up and you’re in need of an appetizer to take along. These Easy Cheesy Mozzarella Bites are also the perfect savory snack for picnics or tailgating too (if they make it out of the house before being devoured).
A savory with a tad bit of spicy cayenne pepper make these Ham and Cheese Breakfast Muffins a warm welcome to the day. These muffins are easy and can be made ahead the day before they are needed, then rewarmed before serving. Serve with butter or a drizzling of honey for a delicious savory sweet bite.

Yep, white beans in a sandwich. I know. It sounds a little different, but different is good, right? Especially with this sandwich.
The soup came together in no time and disappeared just as fast. Although this lighter version uses a reduced-fat milk instead of heavy cream, it was still mighty rich and creamy. Serve alongside a salad, and/or a baked potato for the perfect lunch, or low-key weeknight meal. I can’t see how you’d be disappointed with this one. It’s one totally satisfying soup.
This past year I’ve kept ingredients on hand for making cracker pizzas: crispy individual pizzas that are baked in no time. The kids have really enjoyed making their own versions for dinner or even as a great after school snack. I revised the Easy Bean and Cheese Flatbread recipe from Bush’s Beans to use the thinner tortillas we use for the cracker pizzas.
When it comes to cheese, I’m not much of an expert. Not in the least bit. Honestly, I’ve given little thought to how cheese is made, especially sliced cheese. When I was contacted to have a casual taste test between Natural Sargento Cheese versus processed cheese I thought it would be a good chance to…
