I love watching food shows competitions and when they have one where pizza throwers are on it, well that just delights me to no end. I watch them with dreams of being one myself.
Guess what? I’m not a pizza thrower. But in this video, I do make my own no yeast pizza crust for the first time ever.
Below the video are the written instructions so you too can make your own pizza dough..
In a bowl mix the first three ingredients together. Add the milk and olive oil. Form into ball. Knead the dough 10 times. Cover with a bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes.
In the video, I took this time to cook my chicken.
I used a leg quarter, cut off the leg and cooked it separately (you know just in case this pizza didn’t turn out well). I deboned the thigh and cut the chicken into small pieces. Season this with your fave seasonings. Now cook it.
*FYI- save the bones and such in a freezer bag for making stock later.
Once the pizza crust is ready, spread the crust with as much Alfredo sauce as you would like. Add the cooked chicken, crushed olives, and Parmesan cheese.
Put back into the oven until sauce is heated through. Serve and enjoy!
You don’t need an excuse to enjoy grilled cheese but since it’s National Grilled Cheese Day why not do it right with a Garlic Grilled Cheese Panini and Grilled Cheese Croutons for the tomato soup you’ll be making.
Watch my video below and fall in love with grilled cheese sandwiches all over again.

I love toasting my bread then making my sandwich. I love all types of jams, jelly’s, and spreads of all kinds. As for peanut butter I prefer the creamy and even sometimes the whipped kind.
Now for National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day I didn’t want to just make a sandwich and post it.. For those who are disappointed here you go.
I wanted to do something different for PB&J Day.
I made Thai Noodles with Peanut sauce and Grape Jelly BBQ sauce over short ribs.
1/4 cup of your favorite Barbeque Sauce
2 tablespoons Ketchup
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
1 teaspoon Chili Lime Hot Sauce
2 tablespoons Molasses
2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
2 cups Grape Jelly
salt and pepper to taste
In a med. size sauce pan mix all of the above ingredients. Cook on med heat until well warmed.
Heat oven to 350 and lay short ribs on a sheet pan. Pour half of the grape jelly bbq sauce over the ribs and cook until done, about 35-40 minutes.
In another sauce pan let’s make the peanut sauce for the noodles..
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Peanut Butter of your choice. I used creamy peanut butter.
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
3 cloves Garlic minced
3 teaspoon ground Ginger
1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon Sriracha, optional
In another med. sized sauce pan mix all the above ingredients until everything is saucy. In a large post start the water for noodles. I used Fettuccini noodles. While the water is heating up add 2 cups of frozen mixed veggies. Once the water starts to boil add the noodles. Cook the noodles according to package directions. Don’t worry about the veggies they will continue to cook with the noodles. Once the noodles are done, drain the noodles and veggies being careful not to lose any of the veggies. Put everything back into the large pot you cooked the noodles in and pour the Peanut Butter Sauce over the noodles and veggies. Mix well.
Once the ribs are cooked pour the remaining Grape Jelly BBQ Sauce over the cooked ribs.. Serve and enjoy.
Thai noodles in Peanut Butter Sauce with Grape Jelly BBQ Sauce Short Ribs, This is my things 2 do,,, make it your things 2 do too.
Comment below if you tried this recipe. Post pics of your meal. I can’t wait to see them.
Why spend $20 per basket at department stores when you can go to the dollar store purchase what you know your children will enjoy for considerably less than that.
I love making things very personal for my grandchildren and in these baskets, I crocheted bunnies holding an egg. Each child gets a bunny in their favorite color holding a different color egg.
The directions for this adorable bunny is on a wonderful website. http://www.anisbee.canalblog.com Scroll down until you see Valentin. No worries when you see the instructions are written in French. There is an English translation as well.
I made this bunny holding a heart for my wife for Valentines Day. I got such a good response from her that I just had to make them holding eggs for the grandkids for Easter.
What I love the most about making my own baskets is that I can put in it what I know my grandchildren will love. For instance my granddaughters favorite color is rainbow. Can you even imagine? So for her, I made a rainbow bunny.
After you’ve filled the baskets with all the goodies you’ve bought (spending very little on them), wrap the whole thing up in basket bags. Again purchased at the dollar store. This makes the whole present look like the baskets purchased at the department store that cost so much.
Not counting the yarn for the bunnies because as you know a knitter or crocheter is never without yarn, I spent $20 for all 4 baskets. I can’t wait for them to see it all!!
Comment below or better yet post a picture of the baskets you’ve made for your little ones for Easter… Happy Easter everyone.

This year I wanted to make and give Christmas presents to my family and friends.
This recipe and the others that are linked to this one can be made for any occasion. Today I’m using the 3 Steps For making Brown Sugar Lip Scrub for my neighbors and daughters for Christmas gifts.
Lip scrubs are not only sweet tasting they are great for your lips. They rub the dead cells off your lips making them smooth and kissable.
Watch my YouTube video for this blog Here While your there don’t forget to Subscribe to my channel.
So let’s get started.
1 part Honey
1 part Coconut oil
1 part Brown Sugar
Clear Empty Jars
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Spoon the Brown Sugar Lip Scrub mixture into clean well sanitized jars.
I used empty baby food jars that I cleaned out and them sanitized them by adding them into a pot of boiling water.
I keep my jar of Brown Sugar Lip Scrub on the bathroom counter and use it daily. I love how my lips feel after I use this scrub.
I taped ChapStick to the side of the jar as an added gift.
Do I really need to say anything else? lol.
If you love Carbonara but have never made it yourself, let me tell you now it is so very easy to make.
Another plus to Carbonara is that it’s quick. When I say quickly how does having dinner cooked and your sitting down to eat all in 20 minutes sound to you?
Take a look at this video:
I absolutely love this recipe. If you love it too leave a comment below a pic comment.

Shrimp Carbonara, it was mythings2do. Make this your thing 2 do too.
Cake cake cake… We all love cake, right? But sadly cake loves us as well.. It loves us so much that it likes to hang around a bit. Around the hips, etc. So when I asked my daughter what I should make for National Pineapple Cake Day, she asked if I could find a Weight Watchers Recipe.
Being the awesome mom that I am (if I do say so myself and I do.. lol) I searched the web and found one for her. This recipe is dedicated to my baby girl.
The only alteration I made was the original recipe calls for a 20 oz can of crushed pineapples. After making the first one and noticing that all the pineapples sink to the bottom, I thought well if you want to go to the bottom I’ll just make one where it begins on the bottom. So I substituted with a 20 ounce can of sliced pineapples.
Plus doing it that way took me back to the days of when my mom made Upside Down Pineapple Cake.
The only two things you must have are Angel food cake mix that is a one-step cake mix. Just add water will be on the front of the box, and 20 ounce can of pineapples in 100% juice. Oh, and did I mention it’s only 7 Freestyle Smart Points!!
