Easy Margherita Pizza + Yogurt Dessert

I have a confession to make: I'm addicted to California Pizza Kitchen frozen margherita pizzas.  Like, I can eat the whole thing myself.  And I do.  But with my mission to eat healthier, I've put a stop to that pizza binge.  I knew I'd have California Pizza withdrawals, so I racked my brain for a tasty alternative.  What is a margherita pizza, anyway?  It's basically dough and mozzarella and tomato and basil. 

What you need for my easy margherita pizza:
Pita Bread (I like Joseph's heart-friendly
oat bran and whole wheat pita bread).
Roma tomato.   Fresh mozzarella.
Light olive oil.  Basil (fresh or a shaker).

Spread a bit of olive oil on the pita bread and sprinkle with basil.  Slice off some mozzarella cheese and slice up that roma tomato.  Arrange on the pita bread.  Sprinkle with more basil.  Pop in your toaster oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until it's all warm and melty.  (It's sooo delish!  And remarkably similar to my beloved California Pizza Kitchen pizzas!)

For dessert, pop a few blackberries into Greek yogurt and sprinkle with granola.

Om nom nom. Get in my belly!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
