When the kids cook, it’s Pizza!

The kid’s night to craft the pizza. One square, one round and miss fancy pants had an idea to make a “deep” dish in my medium spring form pan. There is something awesome about the way your kitchen smells when yeasty crust, zesty sauce and CHEESE come together in your oven. All three of these pizzas didn’t even total $6 to make. All the items I bought in bulk at Costco on the 24th, excluding the turkey pepperoni. Kale, peppers, and both the shredded cheese and the sliced Mozzerala all from Costco.

Super simple crust.if using bread machine, start with liquids then end with yeast.

2 teaspoons dried granulated yeast
3 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water, plus
2 tablespoons water
Now, the kids totally clean up dinner too, right?

Farewell September, let’s eat stew!

How can it be Tuesday already, and HOW could it possibly be the last day of September 2014?

Well, today we have a very hearty Red Stew. Again, I’m so pleased I have been able to create meals that are gluten/dairy free and still be on a budget.

These pictures were taken with an iPhone, an IPad, and a Cannon. So, the quality of each picture varies.

Once again in my style, no recipe really to follow, basic seasoning of salt, pepper, and garlic. Taste test till you are happy.

Then of course, I have BREAD! This bread is a gluten free bread.

Bread ingredients
3 cups gluten-free flour mix (Sprouts)

1/3 cup of instant potato flakes (I’m convinced this makes the bread smoother)

1 tablespoon active dry yeast

1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

1 tablespoon guar gum (Sprouts)

1 ⅓ cups warm water

2 large eggs, room temp — place them in a bowl of warm water to speed up the process

2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons oil of choice (I used olive oil)

1 tablespoon honey
