Pizza Sloppy Joes


You know I am all about saving time making dinners. This was one of those times when I could cook all the meat at once and make two meals out of it. The first one was the Pizza Sloppy Joes and the second meal was an Unstuffed Pepper Casserole. It was great to have two…

Pepperoni and Bacon Pizza


This was an unusual meal. The meal preparation was going great up until we went to put the pizza into the oven. I have been reading all different suggestions for making better pizza. We make pizza at least once a week and I am always disappointed in the crust. So, what do I do? I…

Tortellini Pizza Skillet (One Pan Meal!)


Once again we are coasting towards the end of the month. With the extra expense this month of Thanksgiving and then Christmas, right around the corner, we are trying to use up the food in our freezer and only buying small amounts of groceries this month. The food for Thanksgiving that we eat – appetizers…

Silver Beach Pizza


The trees are turning fast. Our tree on the edge of driveway is about 50-60% all ready.  Many of the other trees on the street are still green but our maple tree is pretty well turned. What that means is I can no longer deny that fall really is here. The 45-50 degree nights should…

Pizza Fries


I love fall more than any other time of year. Yet, it brings a sense of sadness to me. The shorter days. The liveliness of the summer tourists in town is gone. Another year is coming to an end. But, the nights are cooler. I can wake up to 45 degree days wrapped tightly in…

Cheesy Pizza Dip with Pepperoni


We were looking for a fun meal. On some nights during the summer we do movie nights, game nights or just let’s play nights where we go to a movie downtown near the fountain. This was one of those nights. We wanted something that was quick but reflective of the type of day we were…

Three Meat Pizza with Herbed Crust


There are nights I hate making dinner.  I don’t want to do it and I delay it as long as possible because I don’t even want to think about it.  I am even slowly teaching my kids to cook with the hope that they can take over a couple nights a week.  Tonight they both…

One of Those Days – Papa Murphy’s Pizza


Papa Murphy’s All Meat Pizza Note:  I received NOTHING from Papa Murphy’s for this post. I purchased my pizza myself with my coupon(!) from our Superbook.  This is my opinion and I have not in any way compensated by anyone. I surrendered tonight.  I try to cook dinner at least 6 if not 7 nights…

Ravioli Pizza Bake


As we await the phone call regarding my mother-in-law’s passing we are trying to keep things as normal as possible for the kids.  They know Grandma is near the end and what that means but their lives are still going on.  There was a Talent Show at the Middle School for my daughter to prepare…

Pizza Pot Pie


This is one of those dinners that start out as one thing and ends up completely different from what you imagined.  This month is incredibly busy so I am trying to make having dinner not add to the stress of our lives but rather enhance it.  Our dinner time is the time we can sit…

No Dough Pizza


We are still in a “No-Buy” January mode that is helping me clean out my basement pantry and freezer.  We are in full on saving mode for our Walt Disney World trip.  So, I need to find dishes that use things I normally stock in my pantry, freezer and kitchen and are fairly simple and…

Three Meat Pizza


Life happens to all of us.  It takes our best plans and turns them inside out and upside down.  How do I keep us from eating out when days like this happen?  By planning ahead.  Really. I keep a stock of pre-made pizza crusts in the cupboard or the freezer, I have 2-3 packages of…
