White Pizza

 

  • 1 pizza shell (round or rectangle, your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil and enough for drizzling
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 4 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 3 Roma tomatoes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • grated Parmesan for sprinkling

     *Preheat oven to 400°

 

Slice your tomatoes fairly thin, and set aside for later.

Then, spray the back of your pizza shell with olive oil spray.

Place your shell on whatever you are using to bake your pizza on.

I used the back of a baking sheet as it fits the size of the rectangular shell.

Drizzle about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the center of your pizza shell and spread it around with your hand! 

Get the crust edges too!

Once your pizza shell is fully coated, drop the minced garlic in the center and do the same!

You do not need to do the crust – unless you want to, of course!

Spread mozzarella cheese evenly over your pizza shell.

Top the cheese with your sliced tomatoes..

Sprinkle the top of the pizza with a little salt, a little pepper and a little Parmesan cheese.

Bake in oven for 13-15 minutes until the bottom is golden brown and a bit crisp.

When you have about 2 minutes left of baking, drizzle a little olive oil on the top of the pizza and place back in the oven until it is finished. This is gives the pizza a little more juicy flavor.

When the pizza is done, let it rest at least five minutes before cutting into it.

I slid mine right off of the pan onto my cutting board and sliced it right on there when it was ready.

yeah, it’s on a paper plate… Mangia!

Candied Crockpot Sweet Potatoes

So, another Thanksgiving dinner luncheon at work was yet again, another success!

i’m almost positive I am forgetting something but the list of what we all brought included: Turkey, gravy, corn, homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing (made by me 🤓), green bean casserole, rolls with butter, salad, mashed potatoes, fruit salad, pumpkin roll, apple cake, chocolate pie, cheese and crackers, cole slaw, cheesecake and …

DUN DUN!!

Candied Sweet Potatoes in the crockpot! One of our supervisors brought hem in. Since everyone loved them so much, he shared the recipe! Randy Beth, they were delicious and definitely blog-worthy! 😬 Thank you!

Easy Stuffing

Hey there! I just got done making stuffing for our Thanksgiving luncheon that we have together where I work.

I know a lot of people prefer lots of herbs and seasonings and some people put meat in their stuffing or “dressing” as I know people prefer to call it. I think that’s great! My mom always did a fairly simple stuffing, which is the route I took. The luncheon will have around 20-25 in attendance and I am almost positive I made too much but here is what I did:

I took four loaves of white bread and tore them up into small pieces. I split them in half into two large bowls – I didn’t have a bowl large enough to fit all that bread! I let the bread sit in the bowls a day prior to actually preparing the stuffing. I also placed a piece of plastic wrap over the top so no dust or anything would settle on top.

The following day, I took eight stalks of celery and one large onion and finely chopped them. I sautéed them in 3 sticks of butter until they started to soften.

Then, I split that butter and veggie mixture in half and poured one half into each bowl. To that, I added a generous amount of pepper and poultry seasoning and some salt.

After I seasoned the bread, I took one box of vegetable broth to each bowl to totally coat and soften the bread. Feel free to use chicken or turkey broth! My supervisor is a vegetarian and I didn’t want to leave him out!

Before anything else, taste a little to see if it needs anymore salt or seasoning. Ya just never know!

Pour the bowls of stuffing into their own large, buttered baking dish, lightly cover with foil and bake on 350 for an hour.

Done!

Since I am bringing mine to work, I buttered my slow cooker and spooned the stuffing into it. I’ll cook it on medium for about three hours stirring occasionally to make sure it’s not burning on the sides and will bring a little extra broth to ensure it’s nice and moist!

Not a whole lot of ingredients or a whole lot to do. Just a simple, not-too-much-of-a-hassle, stuffing recipe!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Dollar Store Favorites

Nowadays, it seems as though prices are rising and people’s pay checks can’t seem to keep up with the “rising” trend. I’m writing this post to help people realize that there are other options aside from name brand products, and to list which dollar store products are pretty comparable. So here it is, an ode to one of my favorite stores, “The Dollar Tree.”

In the past, I would stop here and there at the Dollar Tree to pick up a random plastic platter or napkins or Kleenex etc, and I would find myself purchasing useless items that – let’s be honest, I really didn’t need.

Lately though, I’ve noticed how much more the Dollar Tree actually has to offer. I’ve compiled a list of things that I will not pay more than $1.00 for from here on out!! Ya hear me??? No more!!!

These items include:

  • ‍‎ibuprofen
  • their version of Benadryl
  • melatonin
  • vapor rub
  • body wash (my husband even approves!)
  • notebooks
  • notepads
  • sos pads
  • spic and span (cheaper at Walmart tho)
  • bathroom cleaner
  • toilet cleaner
  • Pine glo (I use for my kitchen and bathroom floors)
  • foil pans
  • wrapping paper
  • scrub brushes
  • mwtak scrubbies
  • sponges
  • birthday or other special occasion cards
  • gift bags
  • creamy petroleum jelly lotion
  • chocolate covered graham crackers
  • small solar garden lights
  • heinz ketchup
  • heinz 57 sauce
  • hand soap
  • BBQ sauce
  • toothpaste
  • special occasion paper products

I am willing the bet there are more items that I have used and will purchase again in the future. I guess I’m just throwing this question there – why pay more for a name-brand product, when you can pay $1.00 for an item that produces the same results???

Sounds like a no-brainer to me!

K-Cup Faves ☕️

Since a co-worker of mine has brought a keurig into our office, my addiction to coffee has gotten worse. It’s kind of fun to try the new flavors out there though.  I purchased Gloria Jean’s butterscotch flavored k-cups and although it’s a lighter roast, it was pretty tasty. The next one I bought was Great value French Roast and woah is that strong! I normally use the smaller cup size on the keurig because I like a stronger coffee but on this one, I have to use the giant coffee cup size lol! This one will definitely get you going in the morning.

My most recent favorite though, is Boston’s Best “Jamaican Me Crazy.” It’s a mix of mocha, caramel and vanilla if I’m not mistaken. It’s just got nice sweet flavor and a bit darker than the Gloria Jeans. I add a little vanilla creamer to it and it tastes like I ordered a cup of flavored coffee from a coffeehouse!

I am making a Coffee Themed Basket to raffle off for an upcoming event and I happened to buy bags of Boston’s Best to add to it. Without knowing if their flavored coffees were good, I figured I’d take the chance. Since, I’ve tried the Jamaican Me Crazy one that’s so good, I’m going to say it’s safe to say, I made a good coffee purchase.

Okay, my coffee post is done now.
