The Trend now in the world of Pizza Topping is adding Kiwi to your pizza pie! Many are familiar with Pineapple Pizza, otherwise known as Hawaiian Style Pizza and the ingredients are Canadian Bacon or Ham plus cheese with a red tomato base sauce.

Chefs are whipping up Kiwi Pizza and saying, HOLD OFF ON THE PINEAPPLE and ADD the KIWI! Pizzerias are saying that Kiwi pairs well with Ham, or Canadian Bacon, and cheese. Also, during the winter months now, as when the Super Bowl or Valentine’s falls, Kiwi are in season and less expensive than Pineapple. Give it a try, and Let us know what you think!


Often foods high in antioxidants and protein, are considered Superfoods. There is a new one to be added to the list, Algae is now a Super Food. Now we are unsure how good it tastes, or how quick the concept of algae over spinach or blueberries will take off, but they are speculating it to be a Hot Super Food in the years to come as Spirulina easily grows in both fresh and saltwater.

What to do for the Valentine Holiday, or what to BUY for Valentines? The big questions pondered every year when this almost seems like a “Hallmark Card” made up holiday after just barely recovering from the Festive Christmas Holidays. Feeling burned out still? Not sure what to do? OR do you just look the other way and hope it goes unnoticed that you want to forget Valentines? SMILE all the reasons are okay, and understood. BUT we are here to help!
It is not so much what to buy, but instead think of What To Do. Guys, Husbands, Men they enjoy activities. So instead of breaking the bank on a gift, go for the experience. Shoot for a “Guy Thing” which in Tigger’s mind, he offers the following. Go out on a “Date” to a Distillery or Brewery, enjoy a flight of the joint’s best drinks paired with an appetizer. Another option, try out a new activity like “Ax Throwing” or check with local Gun Ranges, they often actually have specials on “Date Night” to encourage men and women to have fun at the range together. Bring your own firearms, or often you can rent a model of something you’ve been considering purchasing. Regardless, get out and have fun.
Women today are thinking not about roses, candy and jewelry for Valentines. Women want Valentine’s experience! They want to be surprised, an experience they do not have to plan, arrange childcare or have responsibility. Women appreciate the anticipation of a date. For example, finding little notes or receiving text messages to “clear your evening” or “calendar” and to “wear something nice”. On this one day of the year, regardless if it is a new girlfriend, wife or someone special in your life; making the effort to surprise your woman with a carefree, planned evening or day means the world. BEC suggests visiting a Winery, sharing a flight of fine wines with cheese & grapes. Antiquing or visiting quaint boutiques that one drives by all the time but never stops. Starting off the morning with a surprise stop at a new coffee shop or breakfast place.
1. CHARCUTERIE BOARD: Use your own homemade sausages and jerky along with adding in a couple favorite cheeses, grapes, nuts and then complimenting it all with Mickey’s Mustard! (LOVE Mickeys Mustard – You Will Too!) And don’t forget the crackers.
2. PIGS IN THE BLANKET: Using your homemade sausages or store bought. Cut sausage into single serving size. Wrap each sausage with a crescent roll dough bought from the store. Cut the pre-made dough to fit the sausage size. Bake according to the dough package. 
3. 3 INGREDIENT CHILI SAUSAGES: Everyone loves little smokies! Change it up and use your own. In a crockpot mix together grape jelly and chili sauce, stir in the cut up smoked/cooked sausages and heat until hot. Ready to serve. Want spicy, add 1 tsp of finely chopped jalapeño!
