The one frozen food I have seriously always loved are hot pockets. I remember eating them as a kid, and definitely as a freshman in the dorms. And maybe like one time last week. So, I decided to make a healthier, “adult” hot pocket version, aka a calzone. It was so good!
Because we want to help cure any Monday blues you might have and because we love you, we’re doing an Instagram giveaway! And, oh, the places you’ll go if you win!
Up for grabs is:
- $100 Southwest Airlines giftcard to help you get your travel on.
- Bottle of extra virgin olive oil – a necessity in our kitchen.
- Williams-Sonoma pizza pan – since a stone would be a little difficult to ship, we scouted for the best lightweight pan and we found it! This pan will help you achieve crispy crust like you would on a stone, and can also sustain heat up to 550 degrees, which is key for perfect pizza.
To enter, all you have to do is follow us on Instagram and like the giveaway post! Pretty simple.
If you want to increase your chances of winning, you can do so with the following additional entries:
- Follow us on Pinterest and re-pin your favorite recipe/travel destination.
- Re-gram the giveaway post, tag @pizzaandchampagne, and use the hashtag: #pizzaandchampagne (re-gramming will count as an additional TWO entries, so re-gram away)

For years my mom has had the absolute best spinach and artichoke dip recipe…perfect for parties. Instead of devouring a bag of crackers and an entire dish of the dip for dinner, I decided it’d be more acceptable if I made it into a proper meal. *Just add pasta*. This is a quick 30-minute-meal, has a bit of a kick, and you can always throw in some chicken or bacon to bulk it up.
Who says eating healthy isn’t exciting?
Me. I do. I say that. Almost every day. Except for last night when I made these delicious mini chicken and spinach meatballs and served them with whole wheat penne and some simple crushed tomatoes. AND I did it in like 30 minutes.
I just got back last week from an absolutely amazing trip to Utah with Justin and his family. We were in Park City skiing for the majority of the time, and thanks to American Airlines overbooking, Justin and I got to stay an extra night in Salt Lake City and scored $1,000 in travel vouchers between the two of us. YES.
So, let’s continue our perfect pizza dough search. It’s really, really important. I know last time I vowed that Neapolitan is the best, which I still stand by, but this time, I made a little bit of a thicker crust, and it was absolutely delicious, too. And I loaded up with a ton of cheese, so maybe that had something to do with it.
Does anyone love bruschetta as much as I do? I’m thinking about starting a support club, seriously.
My dad always made it when we would cook at home, and my obsession just escalated from there, especially when I visited Italy. Literally, give me all of the bruschetta. All of it.
If you know me, or read our first post, you know I’m in denial I’m turning 25 this year. Why? I don’t know. It’s just a freaky age, okay? I think it means I have to stop eating goldfish and chicken strips or something. To ease the pain of turning 25, I’m hoping to spend it at Oktoberfest in Munich, which starts a couple days after my birthday. That’s an adult thing to do, right..? So, I’m starting to plan the trip, which made me want to reminisce on our trip to Munich earlier this year. It’s an awesome place.
Lexi and I went with our parents for a long weekend in January, and we drove there from my parents’ place in Frankfurt (that’s still weird to say). Munich is in Bavaria (Bayern) and what you picture typical Germany to look like. Beautiful old buildings and lots and lots of beer.
