Day 27 of 365 Things To Do Around the Eastside: Deep Dish Pizza Pie at The Pizza Bank

I hPizza Bank Kingsgate Kirkland WAave been told for several years about Pizza Bank in the Kingsgate neighborhood of Kirkland. How they have great deep dish pizzas and it is a nice family run joint. So, today we went and gave it a try.

First off, I love pizza. 24/7/365 would be fine by me. I like both deep dish and thin crust as long as it has cheese and sauce I like it.

We ordered the Large Old Number 29, which has Canadian Bacon, Shrooms, Italian Sausage, Olives and Motz. It was definitely a large pie. Hot, crispy and loaded down with toppings. It could have used an additional scoop of sauce, but it was good. Now I know why people have been talking up the Pizza Bank. They have been around since 1983, which is a long time in pizza years!

The large was enough to feed 3 of us and bring home a couple slices.

In addition to Pizza they have many other Specialties of the House. I saw a couple of their Pasta dishes go by and the looked fantastic and enough to share; Lasagna, Baked Spaghetti, Pasta Greek Style, Clam Sauce, Shrimp Diablo and of course Chicken Parm.

Give Pizza Bank a try for Lunch or Dinner. You will get full, enjoy yourself and you should have some leftovers!

Day 23 of 365 Things To Do Around the Eastside: Chef Giada de Laurentiis at Costco Today

Giada de Laurentiis at Costco TodayCelebrity Chef Giada de Laurentiis will be at Costco in Issaquah today for a book signing appearance. She is in town to promote her latest cookbook Giada at Home

Gaida at Home

“The newest cookbook from De Laurentiis (after Giada’s Kitchen: New Italian Favorites) straddles two continents with wonderful recipes from Italy and California. Chapters of this friendly and inviting book are titled by course, such as Appetizers and Desserts, as well as by ingredient and occasion (e.g., brunch). The author includes straightforward instructions for classic Italian fare, such as steak involtini; Chianti-marinated stew; pecorino and bean salad; and limoncello granita, as well as a selection of such modern dishes as grilled asparagus and melon salad; pea pesto crostini, and lemon hazelnut tiramisù. Chock-full of mouthwatering dishes for easy entertaining (Italian fried olives; whole wheat pita chips with mascarpone-chive dip; and vegetable parmesan), this appealing collection is supplemented with informative, short essays on ingredients including olive oil and dried and fresh herbs. “

I love watchSophia Lorening Giada on the Food Network. She is absolutely a Stunning Italian Beauty that has an incredible smile. She creates the most delicious looking Italian food on television and she makes it look easy while she does it. My Grandmother always said “never trust a skinny cook” she enjoyed watching Giada with me and even made a few of Giada’s dishes.
