doesn't that sound good?
so Welcome to Scrumtrulescent Saturdays!
And I would LOVE to see any yummy recipes you might have too.
So link them up at the end :)
So today, I will share with you my favorite pizza ever:
Green Mountain Pizza
don't you love the heart shaped wonder?
So I got this recipe from my good friend Jaime. She actually invited us over when we first moved to San Antonio. We ate this pizza and both my husband and I were in love.
Anyways, here's the recipe today.
1/4 c Alfredo cause (any kind BUT Ragu)
2 chicken breast halves (8 oz) cooked and shredded (Cut chicken into cubes and then cook in 1-2 tbsp of bacon greese. )
16 oz. Pizza crust (see below)
1/2 lb bacon, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
10 large fresh spinach leaves
2 c. grated mozzarella cheese
4-6 green onions, sliced diagonally
2 c. grated Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread Alfredo souce evenly over pizza crust. Arrange spinach leaves over sauce. Add green onions, shredded chicken and bacon. Sprinkle Cheeses over top. Bake for 15 minutes or until bubbly. Serves 4 huge portions. (this pizza is very filling!)
Here's the best pizza dough you will ever have!
Pizza Dough from Bobbi Johnson
4 c. flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. instant yeast
1 1/2 c. hot water
Combine yeast and water. Set aside. Combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add yeast mixture. Knead for 10 minutes and let rise until double. Spread out on pizza pan. Add sauce and toppings. Preheat oven at 350 degrees, bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese melts.
So here's a few tips for you:
cut the bacon into 2 inch or less pieces and cook.
Save the grease for the chicken!
Place the chicken in the bacon grease to brown. Set both aside for the pizza.
Now the dough...I highly recommend this instant yeast. works like a charm every time!
Follow directions in the recipe. Mix yeast and hot water first. Combine the dry ingredients then slowly combine the two.
I use these kneading attachments.
Don't use your normal mixing attachments.
You need to knead the dough..duh!..say that 3 times fast!
And what kitchen wouldn't be complete with out a "empty all drawers" attack from your 16 month old during cooking time?..oh that rascal!
Let the dough rise for about 15 minutes. I let that sit and then get the rest of the ingredients ready, like cut up the onions and grate the cheese. Saves time!
Anyways, after all your efforts, you will have a delicious meal!
OHHH and I forgot some big news.
I have a HUGE surprise in store. But in order to get things going, I need to have at least 200 followers!!
I need your help!
Please, if you like what you see, follow me!...there's a catchy tune right there folks, eh? eh?
seriously, I would love your help in spreading the news about this blog.
this kid's eyes are just phenominal. A whole new world of possibilities have opened up for me when I got the mail a few days ago. I FINALLY got my DSLR. Boy, i am in heaven. I was nervous that I wouldn't catch on. Yet, my many years of using an old school manual camera was not in vain!
seeing how this blog is fairly new, I thought introductions were in order.
I would LOVE to get to know you readers too!
Please leave me a comment, telling me about yourself :)
I was previously over at The Crafty Clique. It originally started as a group to post tutorials of things being made at the monthly craft night over in San Antonio. I wanted to still be apart of it when I moved to Vegas. But it had dwindled until it was me and only me.
So I needed a new space.
Some of you might have picked up that after baby #3 came along, i've been struggling to find time to create. I used to create much more than this past year. I used to scrapbook like crazy! and I miss it!
So I am anxiously engaged in finding that time again and scraping.
So welcome! Glad that you could join me in my attempts to find my crafty self again!
I stay at home with my 3 wonderfully mischevious children.
To stay afloat, I started taking some manditory "me" time. It's been seven years now and i've just about dabbled in all sorts of crafts. My favorites at the moment are furniture redos, sewing, scrapbooking and thrifty finds. I try to also do the absolute cheapest route possible.
I currently reside in the NW in a rental, so my desire to remodel is on the backburner until we own a house...

this is my life....
this is the first time ever that I want to keep my hair short.
that's a big change for me since I have usually kept my hair long!
Here's a better view of it since I know you want to see it some more:
well my hair isn't all that preoccupies my time and energy.
I have been having emotional struggles these past couple of months as my children are still adjusting to this new move of ours.
Emma is struggling in preschool.
it is so hard to watch since in Pasco, she LOVED it.
she loved her teacher. she loved her friends.
so then moving here, she has a big expectation in her mind.
and I know it hasn't come even close.
Her new teacher is just not as "friendly" as her old one. She is still wonderful and a great teacher. But she just didn't get 5 year olds as much as Ms. Molly. She kind of nit picks at the little things. So I feel Emma gets a lot of negative attention and being told what not to do a lot.
and I can't say anything much there since I know i've had my fair share of that filling that bucket to her.
she is just plain testing our limits.
I am sick of beating my head against a wall with her!
everything I say, she fights me...everything.
we just keep butting heads.
I don't want to do it anymore.
some days, i'm just done. done with it all, you know?
next is Kate. She seems to have been improving with the night wakes, which is good.
but thank goodness to all that is holy for Kate.
She is just so content to play, watch her shows, or draw.
She doesn't need my constant attention like my other 2 children.
Luke, oh luke. you are just too much.
you are adorable and talking and expressing your cute little voice.
I love it.
I love that inquisitive look.
You love to read and break things.
you are curious and like to dump out millions of drawers then put things back in.
but, your temper is heightening.
it's very humorous to watch as you melt to the floor.
your father and i are scared we have another Emma on our hands.
so as life settles down for us here, things are getting better slowly.
but i'm excited for warm weather so we can get OUT of this HOUSE.
