BBQ Chicken, Asparagus, and Apple Naan Pizzas

This has to be my new favorite pizza flavor combo ever. EVER.

BBQ Chicken, Asparagus, and Apple Naan Pizzas

I’m a super big fan of fruit on pizza, just ask my suspicious-of-anything-fruity-on-pizza boyfriend – I’m always tormenting him by begging to get pineapple on my half.

And the use of naan as a crust? Not to toot my own horn, but that was genius. No pre-baking necessary, and it results in this soft and chewy crust. Everything you love about naan, now in a pizza. Continue reading

White Pizza Dip

I am unashamedly Team Football Party.

State Fair Part 2 – What Lamb Testicles Taste Like

I want to start this post by acknowledging the deep debt of gratitude I owe my good friend Charlie Cosimini.  Without him, I would have no idea what lamb testicles taste like.

One of the new foods at the Minnesota State Fair this year are the Lamb Fries from Holy Land Deli. Please do not be fooled by the name, these are not chicken nuggets made from lamb. They are indeed lamb testicles. 

And since I have a strict “No Ball” eating policy at The Culinary Capers, I was a little disappointed I couldn’t share the Lamb Fries experience with you all.

Until my good friend Coz stepped up to the plate. The following is a guest spot from Coz, and if you haven’t checked out his blog Chuck Does Art yet, you really should. He does even more amazing things than sampling lamb testicles there.
