Did Anyone Say PIZZA !

~ Hi There ~
Okay, sooo I'm sort of FAMOUS for my pizza! 
Especially with the HUBS:) 
 I have to admit, I could probably make this everyday and not get sick of it's so GOOD! And guess what?'s pretty HEALTHY too, as long as you don't EAT half the PIE in one sitting {guilty}

The secret is the CRUST! 

Thanks to Andrea's Recipes  for posting a super tutorial on how to make WHOLE WHEAT PIZZA DOUGH quick - no long rising time! I tweaked the recipe a tad for my liking, adding a bit more yeast and olive oil, but essentially, her way is how I do it. 

After my dough is all ready {remember use Andrea's Recipes for that} It's time to assemble your pie {New Yorkers call it a pizza PIE}

My favorite kind of pizza to make is what I call my 

I top the dough in this order...
  •  Sundried Tomatoes in Olive Oil about 1/2 cup spreading the oil all over the dough but leave a crust edge
  • 2 to 3 big handfuls of fresh Spinach
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 2 cups shredded mozarella cheese
  • 1/2  chopped fresh tomatoes
  • salt, garlic power and pepper to taste!
Slide it off your cornmeal coated pizza peal unto your very HOT 500 degree pizza stone and cook for about 10 minutes. In my oven it takes only 8 minutes, so watch yours and cook til everything is melty and toasty. 

You're gonna thank me for posting this :) Make sure you check out Andrea's Recipe to perfect your dough technique! Like I said...IT'S THE SECRET!

Hipster Bag

~ Hi There ~
These SIMPLE yet practical BAGS where so fun to make!  I am just TICKLED on how they turned out! 
 One day I was chatting with my sweet little "BEEHIVES" {that's the name of the group of young girls ages 12-13,  I serve at church}... and they mentioned they needed something to carry their scriptures and faith journals in for Sunday.
 WAH- no time my head was spinning with IDEAS on how to whip up these BAGS using some of my fabric stash and a basic tote making method. To make them stylish and CUTE, we added some handmade fabric FLOWERS, too!

I had all the girls over to my house for a big  "BAG" making PARTY and before you knew it we had 10 ADORABLE bags {with some help from the MOMS too, Thanks Robin and Lacy} 

I plan on making some MORE so stay TUNED for the TUTORIAL!

  I can't BELIEVE I didn't take ANY pictures of our activity {d,oyi}... but here's another shot of ALL of us enjoying some YOGURT at one of our weekly activities :) 

 Aren't they the cutest?! 
And they are SERIOUS about their yogurt!
