I lost track f time this evening and needed a quick pizza crust recipe that I could use. I found this recipe. It worked out really well. This pizza dough doesn’t need to rise. I also used swiss cheese as suggested in the recipe.

I made these muffins for breakfast yesterday. The recipe for these muffins can be found at bakingsheet. I used regular milk and yogurt instead of the soy milk and yogurt in the recipe.   I also replaced half the flour with whole wheat flour.  I didn’t top them either. My husband doesn’t like muffins that have any kind of topping on them. Everyone liked these. (Yes, I know this isn’t a very good picture. I’m just too lazy to edit it today.)

Potato Cheese Soup

Potato Cheese Soup

Originally uploaded by Surviving.

Boil cubed potatoes, carrots, onion, broccoli, salt, and about 1 tablespoon of vegetable base or bullion in 2 quarts of water. Once the potatoes are tender lower heat and about 1 cup of milk, 2-4 cups of cheese, 3 oz. of cream cheese, and a mixture of 1/4 cup of cold water and 1 tablespoon of corn starch. How much cheese you use depends on the how cheesy you want the soup. I used swiss and sharp cheddar cheese.  Simmer until desired thickness.  This also works in the crockpot.

Roasted Chicken & Veggies



Roasted Chicken & Veggies

Originally uploaded by Surviving.

I cut up russet potatoes, yams, and onions. I added some frozen carrots. I put all the veggies in the foil lined baking pan and topped it with chicken parts . I topped it with cumin, chili powder, seasoning salt and garam marsala. Then I put some olive oil on that and mixed it all together. I made sure the chicken was on top when I covered it with foil. I put it in the oven for about 40 minutes. Then I removed the foil and baked it for another 20 minutes. The only way I usually eat yams is like a baked potato, with a little butter and some salt. It was really good in this dish. I want to try and use them in more recipes.

Homemade Chicken Soup

I made the broth using the crockpot. I just put in chicken parts, carrot, celery, onion, bay leaves and salt.  The longer you cook this the better it tastes and the dark the broth.  Once it was done, I poured it through a strainer. I then shredded the chicken, put it back in the broth, added some new carrots, celery, and onion. I only had spaghetti noodles so I added them to the soup and cooked it until the noodles were just right. It does take awhile to make this, however it really tastes good. I made extra so that I have some waiting in the freezer for later.

Bread Crumbs



Bread Crumbs

I usually just use my bread machine to make the dough. I like a soft crust so I just bake it in my own oven. The other day I didn’t set the bread maker correctly and it baked the bread. So I just cut the crust off and used the food processor to make bread crumbs. I put the crumbs in a freezer bag in the freezer and just pull it out when I need bread crumbs.
