Dinosaur Chicken Nugget, Asparagus and Black Olive Pizza


I asked the girls on the way home Friday night what they wanted for dinner. Pizza was the overwhelming choice. When I asked them what they wanted on their pizza, a new Pickles and Cake feature was born.

“Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets!” Sadie blurted out.
“Olives! And Asparagus!” Lillie shouted.

I processed the request for a second and realized that enthusiasm always wins out.

“You imagine it and we will make it!”

Now where to find dinosaur chicken nuggets!


I ran out of time to make my own dough so I picked up some Flatout Wraps – nice and easy.

Popped them onto a baking sheet and laid down the sauce, nuggets, veggies and cheese.

Baked in an oven for 12 minutes at 425 degrees.


The crust was crispy and crunchy!


A quick slice and our new pizza was ready to eat. Sadie was starving and ate every bite.


The pizza was really tasty and the fun meter was pegged because they got to make their own imagined meal.


I asked Lillie what she thought of her new creation.

“Are you kidding?! This pizza is phenomulous!”

What?! Is that a combination of fabulous and phenomenal? Am I really that out of touch?

Will They Eat It? Japanese Crab Snacks


Talk about a hardcore snack – these crunchy little whole crabs are coated with a savory soy glaze and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. As soon as I saw this unique snack from Japan, it jumped to the top of the “Will They Eat It?” list.


Yes, this is really a snack! Sadie was ready to go and could hardly wait for me to set up the shot.


Hmmmm? Crunchy crab snack? I am so ready!


Love this shot! Bye Mr. Crabs!


Lillie was a little more skeptical but said she loved them. She put on a good show. Check the video at the end for her Oscar-caliber performance.


Check out the video! Sadie crunching the crab is so funny and Lillie’s hesitant praise is dead on. I ate one and could barely get it down. The intense and concentrated seafood flavor was over the top.
