recipe share :)

Post and share your favorite recipes here!

Anyone plan any big batch cooking before baby arrives? (I know I'd love to stock my freezer with healthy frozen meals so I don't have to cook much for a few weeks after delivery.)

Or how about just your favorite family friendly dinner recipes. Quick and easy? Even better!

Pizza Dough

1C warm water
1tsp sugar
1tsp salt
1tsp yeast
2TBS oil (I prefer Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
2 1/2 cups (approximately) flour - whole wheat and all purpose

Mix first 4 ingredients until dissolved, stir in remaining ingredients and let rise slightly. Form Pizza add sauce and toppings. Bake at 425 until golden brown and cheese is melted (20 minutes or so)
Makes 2 12" pizzas

I like to double or triple this recipe and separate into balls. It freezes well, defrost and let come to room temperature, before baking.

Great for making calzones too!

I'm interested in freezing stuff too.

I guess it's unfair to say I'm not much of a cook. I cook and it's usually good...the problem is that I don't like to do it lol. I also can't always recreate what I cook because I don't measure and I just throw random things in. I'll have to start taking notes so I can share stuff.

Ok so I can share how I made my ham for thanksgiving since that's fairly easy to remember and I keep forgetting to write stuff down lol.

I can't use anything containing dairy, eggs or nuts when I cook and we suspect Logan may have a problem with pineapple so my ham took a bit of creativity.

I tossed the entire ham in the crockpot and dumped the glaze powder over the ham- why waste it right? I don't think it would have been missed though TBH. Then I packed some homemade brown sugar (1-2T molasses per cup of sugar until you reach your desired darkness) on the ham and dumped a bag of frozen sweet cherries in the crock.

I cooked it on low while I was at the inlaws and picked it up on the way to my parents and trust me, it was definitely done. It cooked for a total of 5 hours I believe and was hot enough to burn my toe when DH turned onto the one road and it spilled on my foot! LOL.

My dad was a total goof and had to "test" the ham to make sure it was "safe" for everyone to eat. Then he said he was unsure after only one bite so he'd have to try another piece...or 3. LOL. It went over very well and was very easy to make.
