LIL' DEBBIE'S CREAM PIES

Oh my goodness, you guys, when I ran across this recipe I was taken back many years to when I walked to R.E. Thompson Elementary School, in my little home town of Tuscumbia, Alabama. Those were still my mud pie baking days! For a cream pie all I had to do was break open that thin plastic wrapper and munch. There was a market on my walk to school that had Little Debbie products for a quarter. Mom didn't know it, but more days than not on my walk to school I dipped into that little market and grabbed a healthy breakfast of oatmeal cream pie with one of my three quarters left on the table for me. Daddy called those quarters my walking around money. I figured since I walked to school it was th

CREAM PIES LIKE LITTLE DEBBIE

RED RIBBON PIZZA SAUCE

Once I finally arrived at a good and easy pizza crust recipe, it was only natural to start experimenting with the sauce. My first pizza sauce was a total bust. None of the ingredients were fresh. Bleh... The second batch had fresh garlic and other spices, more salt and a touch of sweetness to offset the garlic. It was actually fairly good, but was still lacking. With the same ingredients, just boosting them a bit by cooking differently, I got a hearty sauce that compliments a pizza pie beautifully. I can't wait to make this recipe even better by using my own fresh grown tomatoes from my very own garden this summer! Note: Before starting this recipe make sure you have fresh large roasted

PERFECT PIZZA CRUST

This is not a sourdough recipe, but it's very good. At the time I took this picture I was not thinking about a blog so this is the only image I could come up with. I will have more and better pictures from here on out. Hope you enjoy your perfect pizza crust! Enjoy! ~PJ PERFECT PIZZA CRUST INGREDIENTS: ½ cup warm water (about 110°) 1 envelope (2 ¼ tsp.) instant yeast 1 ¼ cups water, at room temperature 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil 4 cups (22 oz.) bread flour, plus more for dusting 1 ½ tsp. salt olive oil or non-stick cooking spray for greasing the bowl DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING DOUGH: Measure the warm water into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup.

Soaked Oats & Berries Smoothie

I have read that soaked oats are better for you than cooked oats because of something called resistant starches, which are the starches hidden in food fiber that actually resist digestion in the small intestine. The article I read that gave this most information about resistant starches and how they work basically explained how the large intestine acts as a "fermenting station" for food so that the small intestines can continue to break the food down further to gain nutrients for the body. I'll link the article by "Today's Dietician" here. It's very interesting, but this is just a recipe that I am sharing, so you jump over to Today's Dietician to read more about it after saving this recipe.

When We Want to Look Fancier Than We Are We Make Quiche

For like, half of my life I baked these egg pies and felt so fancy until I realized "keesh" is actually spelled quiche. Hunny, I am just a small town southern gal who never had "keesh" at my momma's table. Momma's eggs were fried and her pie crust full of sugar! Sometimes you just have to resort to phonetics, right? Geez. Oh well, it may have been spelled wrong on my recipe card, but that didn't change the fact that there was never a morsel of my fancy keeshes left on a plate! Last week my daughter and I decided we needed a mom daughter brunch date. So we reserved a table in my kitchen. Why is it so extremely gratifying to cook for your adult children? It is by far one of my most favori
