Rush rush rush.

Some days, I feel like that’s all I ever do! One part of me always wants to justify that, believing that there are way too few hours in the day to fit in the many things to do and people to see. But then the other part of me of course knows that breaks are always good and much-needed, especially for overachieving little 3’s like me. (Any Enneagram fans out there?)  I’ve been trying to do a little better with slowing down lately, and living up the spontaneity of life and just having fun!!

So, when I was contacted last month by Haagen-Dazs to see if I would be interested in serving as the food blogger representative in their new Moments for Me campaign — with the entire goal being to take time for some extra moments of fun, inspiration and meaning — something told me this was probably a good idea. So for the next three months, I will be sharing some tidbits on here and on social media (look for the hashtag #hdmoments) about some of my little moments for me. I have to say that so far it has been a blast! From a farmers market cooking class, to all sorts of new wine goodies, to having a bit too much fun shopping at Sur La Table, to some heavenly Haagen-Dazs gelato arriving on my doorstep (with smoking dry ice — a first for me!), to celebrating it all with a night with good friends — I am beyond thankful and really excited about what’s to come!

I have included more pics and a few stories below. But I’m really excited to be sharing a favorite recipe with you that I served at a happy hour I hosted with friends — this Easy Italian Flatbread. I actually can’t believe I’ve never posted the recipe on here before. People always go nuts over this flatbread! And it’s vegan. And it is a total breeze to make. And if you’re into fancy salts, this is also a really fun recipe to feature them. (I made mine this time with this smoked sea salt I bought with my gift certificate to Sur La Table — crazy good.)  Or regular ol’ salt also works. However you make it, I guarantee this one’s a winner.

What is your favorite way to enjoy a moment for yourself?

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings


A quick and easy flatbread that everyone is sure to love!


  • large pizza dough (homemade or storebought – this is my favorite recipe)
  • Italian seasonings
  • freshly-cracked black pepper
  • coarsely flaked or ground sea salt (or I love to use smoked sea salt)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. I recommend also using a pizza stone if you have one (though no worries if not).
  2. On a floured surface, roll out pizza dough to your desired size and thickness, or shape it into multiple smaller flatbreads. Brush the top lightly with olive oil, then generously sprinkle the top with Italian seasonings, freshly-cracked black pepper, and a coarsely-flaked salt.

A Few Highlights From My First ‘Moments For Me’ Experience

Mail days have been extra fun this month! My first package was literally smokin’ — a big box of Haagen-Dazs gelato to enjoy! I loved the “limoncello” flavor the best, but I think Henry was after my “black cherry amaretto”. :)

My next package included an amazing wine kit (including a wine journal, two yummy bottles, a recycled wine bottle grow-your-own-parsley plant, and a cool aerator), a gift certificate to Sur La Table, and a gift certificate to a local cooking store. I took my friend, Amanda, and we attended a farmer’s market inspired cooking class, taught by our wonderful instructor Lorin. She’s a farmer, an incredible cook, and even a new food blogger! We made a 6-course lunch, full of tons of fresh and super delicious courses. SO GOOD!!!

Friend night!!! Had these lovelies over for a happy hour with some of the wine and cheese goodies I received from Haagen-Dazs, and with my gift certificate to Sur La Table. SUCH a wonderful night. We put that aerator to good use (it really does make a difference!), ate tons of cheese and crackers and flatbread (yes), and just had a completely wonderful evening. I so love these friends.

  16. Been meaning to tell you that I love your site! I am a KC girl too (now living on Shanghai) and always on the lookout for delicious new things. Now you go and mention Enneagrams! (I am the poster child for 9, through and through). Being so far away, your posts always give me a sense ‘home.’ Thanks!

  17. I made this yesterday, but i doubled the batch, instead of the Italian seasoning on one of them I just used some fresh rosemary and coarse sea salt supper yummy on both of them!

  18. I really love the idea of making a point to take a moment for yourself. That is something I really need to do! I think for me, it’s just laying on the couch with a blanket, tea, and my DVR!

    This flatbread looks delish!

  19. Sometimes I feel like all I do is rush, day and night. It’s important to take some time every now and then. Love this flatbread (and love Haagen-Dazs!)

  20. That flatbread looks INcredible!!! Yu-uuuummm

  21. This looks tasty, but did I miss the baking instructions?  How long do I bake them, and how thin should I roll out the dough?  I don’t want to end up with crackers.

    • Thanks Sharon – we link to the dough recipe we like to use for this in the ingredients – here is the link again: We hope you enjoy!
