BBQ Chicken Pizza

The other night we were having friends over for dinner. After thinking for a while I decided that I would make them some pizza! I have been wanting to make a BBQ chicken pizza for a while and I finally did it. It was delicious and everybody loved it! Not to mention that it was super easy!

Ingredients (for 1 pizza)
Pizza dough (I used the same dough that I used for stuffed crust pizza but cut the recipe in half)
1 chicken breast
BBQ sauce
Mozzarella cheese

Marinate the chicken in some BBQ sauce for at least an hour. Bake the chicken until no longer pink. (I did mine earlier in the day and then just put it in the refrigerator until I was ready to use it.)

Cut up the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

When pizza dough is ready spread on some BBQ sauce. You can use as much or as little as you like. I probably used about 3/4 a cup or so.

Sprinkle on your cheese, throw on the chicken, and bake!

Chocolate Scotcheroos

I first had these as a kid when my mom would make them. I had been wanting them for a while so I had my sister-in-law come over and we made some. They are a fun twist on regular Rice  Krispies Treats! I found the recipe over at the Kellogg's website.

1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Place corn syrup and sugar into 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat.

Stir in peanut butter. Mix well.

Add Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

Press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.

Spread evenly over cereal mixture.

Let stand until firm. Cut into bars when cool.

Fudge Brownies

For years I looked for a great brownie recipe and was always coming up disappointed. I came across this one and tweaked it a little and have been using it ever since. I love how chewy and gooey these are. They are just the way a brownie should be.

1 cup butter
4 squares unsweetened chocolate (may substitute 8oz. semisweet chocolate chips and decrease sugar to 1 1/2 cups)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Melt butter and chocolate.

Remove from heat and stir in sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla and beat lightly. over mixing will cause brownies to fall.

Stir in flour and nuts.

Spread batter in a 9x13" pan that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray.

Bake for 35 minutes.

*If you like a little more healthy brownie, you may substitute the 2 cups sugar for 1 3/4 cup honey and the all purpose flour for the same amount of whole wheat flour. This will produce a more cake like brownie that is still very good.

Chocolate Sauce Topping for Fudge Brownies

2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat all ingredients except chocolate chips till boiling. boil 1 minute.

Stir in the chocolate chips until melted.

Honey Caramel Popcorn

This is a very quick and easy snack to make for the family or to take to a party. Everyone loves this and it seems there is never enough so you might want to double this recipe.

2/3 cup popcorn kernels
1 cup honey
1 cup real butter
1 tsp vanilla
dash salt

Pop popcorn in a hot air popper. Set aside in a large bowl.

Heat honey and butter until melted. Continue to cook over medium-high heat until mixture boils.

Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until the soft ball stage. Check by dropping a small spoonful of caramel into a small bowl of ice water. When caramel forms a soft ball upon placing it in the water, remove from heat.

Add vanilla and salt, stir.

Drizzle over popcorn and stir to coat all of the popcorn. Caramel will thicken as it cools, so stir quickly.

Some of our children have not cared for guacamole but as I experimented with recipes through the years I came to these ingredients. Now it is a favorite even with the picky eaters. My husband and I have always loved it not matter how it is made. Because it is so delicious this is the only way I make it any more.

4 medium avocados
¼ of a medium white onion, chopped very fine
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Pinch or two of ground cumin
1/8 tsp granulated garlic or garlic powdered
Pinch or two of cayenne pepper
1-2 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste

Peel and remove seeds from the avocados.

Mash the avocados with a fork.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.

Serve as dip for tortilla chips, or over your favorite Mexican food dishes.

Here is a simple and delicious recipe for granola! One great thing about granola is that you can pick and choose some of your ingredients. If you don't like dried fruit (like my husband and I) then you can omit it. If you do like dried fruit then you can pick which kinds to put into it, as well as what kind of nuts you want. This granola tastes good by itself, in a bowl with milk (like cereal), or with yogurt!

10 cups rolled oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup powdered milk
1 TBS cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 cup oil
1 1/3 cup honey
1 TBS vanilla
2 cups raisins or other dried fruit
2 cups any kind of nuts

Preheat oven to 300° F.

In a large bowl mix the oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flour, powdered milk, cinnamon, and salt.

In a small saucepan mix oil, honey, and vanilla. Heat just until warm. Pour over the oats mixture and stir until everything is coated evenly.

Pour onto two cookie sheets. Spread into an even layer.

Bake for 45 minutes.

Stir in dried fruit and nuts.

Store in an airtight container.
