THE SECRET TO ITALIAN LOAF PIZZA

THE SECRET TO THE BEST ITALIAN LOAF PIZZA

Homemade pizza is the best kind of carb! I love the cheese and all of my favorite toppings, lately I have been all about olives and mushrooms on my pizza. I am slowly acclimating myself to cream cheese, I feel like its a great addition to make the pizza extra cheesy and creamy. You can edit this recipe however you’d like, but this is how I make my own Italian Loaf pizza (you can also use french bread, but I happened to have this loaf on hand). This recipe only takes about 15-20 minutes since you don’t have to deal with making a pizza dough, which is awesome because you don’t have to wait as long to eat!

I wanted my second Valentine’s Day look to be a little different because so many looks involve dresses, so I decided to wear pants. Pant outfits can still be sexy and perfect for Valentines Day! (If you haven’t seen my first Valentine’s Day look, check it out here)

WHAT THE HECK IS A LIP MASK?

I do use lip scrubs (my favorite is the lip scrub by Lush Cosmetics, click here), it really helps keep my lips exfoliated, especially if I am planning on using a matte lipstick. I decided to do some research and try them out for you!

If you live in the Midwest (like I do) or anywhere it gets below freezing in the winter, you are probably like me and take any chance to have cozy days inside by the fire with a warm mug of (insert your favorite beverage here).  I have only ever had Hot Buttered Rum once when I visited Colonial Williamsburg, it was pretty good. This recipe definitely isn’t the same but it’s just as tasty.

I will include the full detailed recipe in this post below, but for now, here is my account of making hot buttered rum. There aren’t many tips I need to add to this recipe as it’s very easy to make. However, I would recommend serving with a spoon as some of the spices settle to the bottom after a while.

If you don’t end up using all of the drink mixture you can save in the freezer for a later date! This recipe makes about 6-8 servings; it was quick and very easy to make (my favorite kind of recipe).
