Fresh Salsa


A fun site to visit for pizza
instructions and recipes is

Pizza is the by far, one of my ultimate choices for dinner (breakfast and lunch too). I've never said "no" to a pizza. From delivery to carry out, thick crust to thin crust, homeade to frozen, my taste buds water for pizza. I like to sprinkle atop my pepperoni pizza, grated parmesan cheese and dried crushed red peppers. Serve this way, with a garden salad.(However, you will never find anchovies on my pizza, but feel free to add them.) Here you find some of my favorite homeade pizza recipes.

Tasty Treat
Caramel Corn
8 quarts popped popcorn
2 c. brown sugar
2 sticks butter
1/2 c. white corn syrup
1 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. baking soda
3 c. peanuts
Put popped popcorn and peanuts in large mixing bowl. Set aside. In saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, salt and vanilla. Bring the syrup to a boil for 5 minutes-watch close! Remove pot from burner and add baking soda. It will become foamy. Quickly pour over the popcorn and peanuts. Stir until popcorn is covered well. Pour onto large cookie sheet. Spread out and bake in 250 degrees oven for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes, until cool. Store in airtight container.


"What's For Dinner?" I can help with ideas for that daily question asked in homes nearly everywhere. Let's get started. How about Crunchy Herb Chicken, with Cabbage Salad, Roasted Redskins and Green Beans. Serve a yummy Banana Cake for dessert.
Banana Cake

While cooking with these recipes, please keep in mind, most of them are spiced to my liking. Feel free to add more or go lighter on the spices. When I try new recipes, I might omit something I do not care for or add extra amounts if I favor that particular ingredient. However, be careful with baking ingredients, such as those like flour, baking soda, baking powder, eggs and so on. The result in a cake rising properly may be disappointing. With that said, have fun and enjoy!

Feature Dessert
Feature Menu
3 12 oz pkg chocolate chips
red apples
angel food cake
pound cake
Rice Crispy treats

Arrange *fondue pot in center of table. Each guest should have fondue forks and a plate. As with any fondue, please supervise when serving to avoid burns or fire. Melt chocolate chips first , in double boiler or in sauce pan on low heat. Watch closely as not to burn chocolate. Transfer into fondue pot. Keep sterno on low to med heat so chocolate does not burn. Prepare dippers. Slice bananas into bite size pieces. Wash fruit. Cut up angel food cake & Rice Crispy treats into bite size pieces. Set dippers in dishes near fondue pot. Dip and let cool a bit before eating. Be creative, you can dip anything that can be skewed into the chocolate.
*A small crock pot works well as a fondue pot.

1 3 oz. pkg. Lime Jello
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. grated carrots
1/2 c. diced red apples (with skin)

Pizza Crust
Choosing a crust for your pizza is very important. When making dough, I like to spice the crust according to flavor of pizza. For example, sprinkling garlic over crust for Italian and pepperoni pies is wonderful. Sprinkling crust with parmesan cheese is great too. Another tasty idea is to sprinkle corn meal on pan before laying crust down. For fruity pizza pies, use cookie dough for the crust. For breakfast pies use tubed crescent rolls. There are many recipes and many ways to get there. I frequently use frozen pizza/bread dough balls for time saving purposes. My second choice is pre-mixed boxes of pizza dough mix. For you 'from scratchers' here is a basic recipe and quite simple. Feel free to add spices to the dough while mixing for extra flavor. For example I like to add fennel & garlic to the dough for Italian pizza. Or cumin and cilantro for Mexican pizza pies. Have fun and be creative.
7/8 c warm water
3/4 t salt
2 tbl olive oil
2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 t white sugar
2 t active dry yeast
In mixing bowl, dissolve yeast with warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes. In separate mixing bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients and oil to yeast mixture. Mix well until dough forms ball. If mixture is too dry add a teaspoon of water, if sticky add flour. Place ball on floured surface and knead for 1 minute. Cover with cloth and set in warm area. Let rise for 1 hour. Punch dough ball down and knead a few times. Cover and let rise again for 1 hour. On floured surface roll out dough. Press from center out. Place dough into lightly greased 12-inch round pizza pan. Poke holes evenly around crust to prevent bubbles when cooking. Let stand 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread pizza sauce over dough. Sprinkle toppings over sauce. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
