Handmade Artisan Wooden Furniture...

We had a truck arrive last week with the most unusual and special pieces on it! This wood and glass showcase shelf has many uses in any home! Handmade and finished by skilled artisans this piece is perfect for displaying the items you hold dear. I can also see it in a bathroom filled with beautiful jars of bath salts and soaps and beautiful cream towels folded on the shelves. Or in a kitchen with baskets of produce and mixing bowls and supplies inside the glass doors...use your imagination!

This two piece hutch can add a statement to any room with it's gorgeous finish and intricate design. This piece went through many steps and treatments, and was hand painted by skilled artisans, giving it a special and unique touch. Love the old red paint finish and touches of vintage turquoise. Great storage and accent piece!

Lovely French style screen with vintage vibes and soft hues...cover a unsightly closet door or place in a corner for an accent piece!

Spicy Hawaiian Pizza

Spicy Hawaiian Pizza
1 pound pizza dough, divided
2-4 Tablespoons cornmeal
Pineapple Sriracha Jam (Pick Your Jar Up At Bonnes Amies)
3 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
4 pineapple rounds, peeled, cored, and cut into half rounds
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped

We’ve added a little kick to your traditional Hawaiian pizza. Sweet, savory, salty and spicy… and so simple to make.
Preheat oven to 500° F.
Roll dough out very thin into desired shape. Transfer to a baking sheet that has been sprinkled with corn meal.
Spread a thin layer of Pineapple Sriracha Jam over the pizza crusts. Top with prosciutto, pineapple, red onion, bacon and mozzarella. Bake 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts, the pizzas are thoroughly cooked and the crust is crispy.
Sprinkle cilantro over pizzas, cut and serve.
This delicious jam has a character all of its own. It starts out with the sweet, sunny taste of pineapple and a touch of citrus and then a kick of heat from sriracha! A uniquely bold and brilliant flavor, it's great for apps, an artisanal cheeseboard or served with pork, grilled chicken or fish.
