Here is why I love this dough.. Its fast. Its easy. It turns out great. I love to make this pizza on nights when I really don't feel like cooking, because it just doesn't feel like I'm doing a huge production. The kids love to decorate their own mini-pizzas. I can eat as many veggies as I want and the hubs can eat as much pepperoni as he wants. Best part..EVERYONE is HAPPY!! and that makes me happy. Therefore I love the dough. We love to add a lot of pesto to our sauce, probably equal parts. . . .
I just about died when I first had this poppacorn!! I'm a popcorn lover, die-hard popcorn lover. Any shape and form, and this is not the first time I have blogged about my undying love for popcorn. I also LOVE marshmallows. I'll eat them plain, or ya know- smothered on rice kristpies. little unknown fact about me? I can down a whole pan of rice krispie treats BY MY SELF. My cousin, made this this Marshmallow Cinnamon Bear Popcorn for me one night while I was visiting, staying the night at her . . .
One of my favorite places to eat in college was called European Connection. They specialized in crepes...I usually got what was called a half attack. Meaning the humongous crepe was but in half. One side filled and wrapped with entrée food the other half your choice dessert filling. Genius.. your meal comes half deliciousness that fills you up and the other have chocolate berriness that calms the sweet tooth. Our family loves this for dinner, so we make it quite ofen. It's so healthy and . . .
I've always been a fan of enchiladas. As a kid my parents would take me and my family to a small authentic Mexican restaurant called La Casita. With dim lights, scents of stewing jalapeños, and cozy seating it didn't take much to fall in love with the food. Our classic order consisted of the cheese and chicken enchiladas that was smothered in a rich red sauce. Growing up on those enchiladas, with the perfect sauce I've all but boycotted any other red enchilada. Nothing is quite the . . .
Hands down this is my husbands favorite desserts. When we were first married a friend had brought this real berry sherbet to a party and we have been making it ever since. This real berry sherbet so easy, its refreshing made with real fruit and it's FAT FREE! beautiful. It's especially perfect for hot summer evenings. To make this refreshing dessert you will want to soften the pineapple sherbet a bit, and you'll want to let the berry soften till they are almost frozen. If desired slice up . . .
This is possibly the easiest crowd pleaser ever! I made this for a baby shower and it was such a hit I made it again the next week for a bow-making party. Both groups raved over it! and now... you get to be the talk of the party :) [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:58] . . .
I did not grow up on anything outside of good ol' american food. I mean really, while my mom is an excellent cook and isn't pick much at all...she married a husband who is and who suffered from loooooooots of heart burn. So She didn't ever put onion, or peppers in much of her food. She raised kids to appreciate all food, and all veggies- so as we have gotten older all of us have not been afraid to go outside our "comfort food" type meals and eat ethnic, or spicy, or "funny looking..." I think . . .
I really love to dip things. Just makes food that much more fun to eat when flavors mingle. I also find I am inclined to eat way more fruits or vegetables when I have something to dip them in. Yes, they are probably no as lean and skinny friendly when dipped, but better to eat a lot of fruit with a little dip then none at all! This also goes for my kids.. carrots in ranch and apples in peanut butter they could eat all day long. This dip is great to put out with an assortment of fruits. . . .
One foggy Christmas party my Aunt served me a hot tasty drink that totally took me by surprise. I don't know what I was expecting but THIS was awesome. We were at a family party, all sitting around enjoying each other's company drinking "Russian Tea"yes. that is its original name. Should I keep it? I don't know. it sounds a little uh, foreign? So I changed it to Spiced Orange Cider. EITHER way, I love this drink for special occasions on cold winter nights. (so do my kids, I might . . .
