J: While Erik and I do enjoy a good meat-burger every now and then, we are both trying to eat more vegetarian, for the health benefits as well as for the expense. So, when we want to make burgers, we often turn to veggie burger recipes instead to get our fix. This burger recipe is one we came up with, inspired by the ingredient list on a box of MorningStar Farms southwest veggie burgers. We loved the burgers so much, looked at the ingredient list, and realized, hey — there’s nothing crazy in here. We could make these! So, we did.

E: This is a pizza I’ve been waiting for months to try. It came to me one time when I was thinking about how just about anything food-wise could be put on pizza and would be tasty: one of the wild ideas I thought anyone else might actually want to eat was a southwest-inspired pizza with taco-style toppings. It is pretty quick and easy (assuming you’ve got pizza dough lined up) and my goodness is it tasty. This was the best pizza we’d had in a while.
But before we start, some annoying news from my side. My Mac has died its second death now (the infamous 8600M graphics board failure) so I’ve got to get that to Apple and see if they will cover it (it is a pretty old machine now, but I can’t remember exactly when I bought it). For now I’m on my old XP machine, which takes some getting used to. My monitor here also isn’t calibrated as well, so if these pictures seem a bit off, it’s not you. I’ve also got the photos for one post (the one I was going to do instead of this one) stuck on that hard drive for the moment, so you are getting this post slightly early.
In any case, and all technical issues aside, let’s get working on some pizza.
