Homemade Pizza Dough - Kristy's Recipe
normally you will get 2 dough balls out of this recipe. I normally freeze the second dough ball for a later date to pull out and make.
2 packages active dry yeast
2 cups of warm water (110 degrees)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter - also I add minced garlic to my butter (1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic)
1-1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups of all-purpose flour
cornmeal (if you'd like on the bottom of your pan for coating/dusting)
In a large metal bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oil, garlic/butter, sugar and salt and flour. Blend until smooth and starting to form dough ball. Turn onto a floured surface and form a dough ball, cover for 10 minutes and let rest.
Roll into a circle to fit your pizza pan. Make sure your pan is greased and has the the cornmeal lightly dusted within pizza pan. Add all you fun toppings. I like to spread Williams cheddar roasted garlic cheese on the dough and then add sun dried tomatoes and basil, topped with a 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned
Lasagna Vegetable Soup - Kristy's Recipe
Saute one small onion or half of a large onion in a pan with olive oil
I add two large cans of chopped tomatoes. One can is Italian herb and the other is just plain.
1 pound of Ground Turkey
1 can of northern beans
1 medium onion chopped
3 large stalks of celery (I always place my stalks in my food processor so the celery is really chopped fine)
3 stalks of bokchoy sliced
1/2 cup of fresh Italian parsley
1 large clove of garlic along with 2 small cloves of garlic - minced
5 cups of water
2 cups of beef broth
1 large can of crushed tomatoes - all liquid goes into soup pot
1 large can of stewed tomatoes - all liquid goes into soup pot
3 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning - I use Mrs. Dash or Aldens Mill Seasonings here: http://www.aldenmillhouse.com/
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1-1/2 pounds of ground turkey
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, peas and corn)
2 cups of fresh cut broccoli florets
1 cup of zucchini
1 cup of Italian green beans
1 can of northern beans or navy beans
(also you can add a can of garbanzo beans if you'd like)
half package of lasagna noodles - break into pieces
From My Kitchen To Yours! ENJOY!!!
I guess I need to get myself a pair or a couple pairs of rain boots this year. I guess the new trend is the rain boots for fall/winter 2011. Need to find who makes these becaues I do like the first pair.
