I randomly checked my spam email and discovered a GrubHub coupon for a FREE California Pizza Kitchen Take and Bake Pizza with at $15+ purchase plus free delivery (while supplies last). I may eat at CPK three times a year and only aware of their frozen pizzas at grocery stores. So, the option to get one of their pizzas ready to bake delivered to my home fascinated me. Let’s be honest, FREE fascinated me more. Props to GrubHub and their email headline suckering me into craving pizza.

CPK had several Take and Bake options on the menu but only three options were included in the free offer—BBQ chicken pizza $16.49, pepperoni $15.99, and cheese $14.99. Since the BBQ chicken option was the most expensive, I decided to go with that.

I didn’t know what to expect when it arrived, but I was pleasantly surprised.

My boyfriend plays a game called ‘Guild Wars 2.’ He keeps trying to get me to play, but I really don’t have the patience for that game, but I am fascinated with the foods the gamers can create for their characters.

Bowl of peach raspberry swirl ice cream caught my attention and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I would love to make this again with a custard base. I haven’t yet perfected the use of eggs in my ice cream base, but I will. I would also like to remake this with fruits during peak season.

The ice cream base is really basic to make, but have patience when straining the raspberry puree.

Do you hate when you crave something hearty, but remember how complicated it can be to make from scratch? Yeah, that sometimes kills my vibe of having it.

On this day, I was craving a nice hot chicken pot pie. Could have traveled up to Ralph’s grocery store and got my favorite Marie Callender’s frozen pot pies, but didn’t feel like traveling. As you can see I was having a superb lazy day.
