• Caramelized Apple Bacon Pizza

    This is Katie. 

    In the Marble home, homemade pizza is a cheap date night. We both are pretty adventurous when it comes to food and we love to just throw whatever is in the fridge into a pizza creation. A dear friend uses this technique to make her famous "Dump Salads"...so I guess this could be a "Dump Pizza". And what is better when the weather gets cold then to have an excuse to turn the oven on and warm up the kitchen?

    Caramelized Apple Bacon Pizza: 

    A ready made Pizza Crust (I have yet to master a homemade version)

    Mozzarella and Gorgonzola Cheese






    In the words of my husband, "You had me at Gorgonzola..."

    I love the deep plum look of these Arkansass Black apples...handpicked on our last excursion to Oak Glen!

    Thinly slice an apple and about a half an onion while your bacon cooks. The thinner you can slice the better. If your apples are too thick they won't cook properly!

    Once the bacon is done, carmalize your onions in the bacon grease...o heck ya.

    While the onions are becoming heavenly, start topping the crust with cheeses. No sauces or spreads needed here. Trust me you won't miss it. My layers were mozzarella, spinach, gorgonzola, apple slices, carmalized onions, crumbled bacon, and rosemary. 

    Bake at crust specifications.

    Serve with Apple Cider and enjoy!

    Thinking next time I will add Pecans...hindsight is everything my friends...

  • Rear Window

    This is Kate

    Have you guys ever seen the Hitchcock movie Rear Window? If you haven't, make it happen. It's a classic movie about a man who looks through his window and observes the world around him. Disclaimer: he's a creep and you should not try to recreate this film. 

    Today, we hope you feel inspired to go find a space -- preferably an epic window. Take a moment to look outside, and ponder something great. Dream. Write it down. And if you're artsy, find a friend to take your photo because silhouette lighting is dang cool. 

    Until next time. xo.

    I dare you to read this post and not have Pocahontas' "Colors of the Wind" stuck in your head for the rest of the day...

    For this DIY, I would love to go on and on and on about supplies, precision, thoughtfulness...but nope. Dip dead leaves in paint. The end. 

    Now use in garlands, gift toppers, or scattered on a table! I added mine as accents to the tapestry I made a while back. Perfect fall touch.

    ....Can you paint with all the colors of the wind...

  • Cold Beach

    This is Elise.

    "Cold" in Southern California is definitely a subjective word. It's even more subjective at the beach. If it's too cold to swim, then it's cold. At least that's my criteria. Hope everyone else in the US is enjoying fall. Here's to being "cold".
