I had a massive kitchen fail the other day, so that made me lose my motivation a little bit. We had tacos one night and then burgers last night. Most of the prep for these was done my Marisa and Woody. In our burgers, we put garlic, onion, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder. They were pretty decent.

I have two recipes coming up soon(whenever I have time to post them) for honey whole wheat bread and the other for wedge salad. Stay tuned!

Barbeque Chicken Pizza

I can't take full credit for this post because I mostly just took pictures.

Isn't he cute? And he cooks good too. Definitely a plus.

Anyways, this is a super easy recipe. The recipe for the dough is from, and we got it from Woody's sister Lisa.

We put sautéed onions and potatoes on ours which were actually our favorite part, but you can leave them off if you want.

Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Pizza Dough

  • 2 1/2 c flour
    1 Tbs fast-rising active dry yeast
    1 tsp salt
    1 c hot water
    2 Tbs vegetable oil
    oil, for oiling pans
    cornmeal, to sprinkle on the pan

    1. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of flour with yeast and salt.
    2. Pour hot water and oil into flour mixture and mix well
    3. Mix in remaining flour to make a slightly sticky dough
    4. Form dough into a ball.
    5.On a lightly floured surface - or using the dough hook on KitchenAid mixer - knead dough for about five minutes or until smooth and elastic.
    6. Cut dough in half; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. To make later, refrigerate the rounds of dough at this point. Bring to room temperature before rolling or stretching
     7. Meanwhile, lightly oil pizza pans or sheets and sprinkle lightly with cornmeal.
    8. Roll dough to desired thickness and transfer to pans, or place dough directly on pan and pat and stretch to desired shape and thickness.
    9. Let rise for 15 minutes, a little longer if you are making a thick crust.

    To create your masterpiece:
    1. Sauté(ours were more on the burned side but they were delicious) onions and potatoes with olive oil and a dash of garlic salt

    2.  Spread barbeque sauce(we used Dr. Pepper barbeque sauce, which I strongly recommend) over the whole of the pizza, leaving 1/4-1/8in on the side

    3. Mix shredded chicken with more barbeque sauce

    4. Sprinkle mozarella all over the pizza, then sprinkle the chicken, onions, and potatoes, and then more cheese on top.

     I got a little too close to the master at work

     He's so proud  :)

    Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

    At our wedding reception, we had a candy bar with all of our favorite candies, as well as other kinds of candy wrapped in pink or silver(those were my colors). We had lots of leftovers though, so my mom sent some back home with us. Not knowing what to do with the excess of candy, I brainstormed, and decided to add the caramel Kisses to chocolate chip cookies. They were really moist and delicious!

    Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies 
    (chocolate chip cookie recipe from the back of Western Family chocolate chips)

    2 1/4 c. Flour
    1 tsp. Baking Soda
    1/2 t. Salt
    1 c. Butter
    3/4 c. Granulated Sugar
    3/4 c. Brown Sugar
    1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
    2 Eggs
    1 (12 oz.) pkg Chocolate Chips (This all depends on how chocolatey you want them. I only used 3/4 of the bag, so its up to you)
    12 chopped caramel Kisses(I froze mine in advance so they were easier to cut)

    1. Preheat over to 375°
    2. In a small mixing bowl; combine first 3 ingredients
    3. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars together until fluffy
    4. Add vanilla and eggs. Beat well.
    5. Sift dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix well.
    6. Add chocolate chips and Kisses
    7. Roll into 1'' balls and place 2'' apart on ungreased cookie sheet
    8. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375°

    Here's some pictures from the process:

    lots of butter...I doubled the recipe :)
    chocolate +caramel=pure amazingness!
    some of the caramel leaked out and burned a little bit, but who doesn't love burnt caramel?

    Here's a sneak peek of whats to come!

    For now enjoy a few pics from our Honeymoon:

    we like food. :)


    I have blog title ADD, which explains why I have changed the title and url 3 times in the last 2 months. This one I really like though, so its here to stay. Sorry I've been MIA for a while, I've been doing the whole "getting married," thing and honeymooning and moving in and everything. But once I get my computer to work again (currently on the husbands..) then I will be posting more regularly!
