Perfect Pizza Crust {Foodie Friday}

DH has been very determined that homemade pizza just does not cut it. We tried making crust a couple times from a box and it never turned out well. So now we just buy frozen or order out. So when I told him I wanted to make a pizza from scratch he told me not to.

Dairy Delicious Dip {Foodie Friday}

Have you ever purchased the fruit dip from the grocery store? I always loved that stuff with apples, pineapple, and especially strawberries. Due to my frugal nature I started making this dip a couple of years ago. It’s much better and cheaper than the stuff from the store. I challenge you to make this and not an entire container of strawberries.

Modern Art Prints

Here's the story: One day I got bored and I saw a pretty picture. I said to myself, "Self, I bet you could make one of those." So I did. I started to see things that I liked and enjoyed the challenge of trying to make them on my own. Some people charge a lot of money to make these, and some of them are difficult, I won't like. Now that I can do it myself, I can save all kinds of money and have lots of great gifts!

Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad {Foodie Friday}

I LOVE Chicken Salad. A lot. A lot a lot. I have never made my own chicken salad before and when I did this weekend I honestly didn’t use a recipe.

Garlic Rice Pilaf {Foodie Friday}

Do you have problems boiling? I always seem to make a huge mess on my stove when I am trying to make pasta, rice, or what have you. I am just too busy doing other things in the kitchen that don't involve watching boiling water. Enter oven baked rice pilaf. Hallelujah! So easy, so delicious! It takes a little longer to make it this way, but I like to do it in the oven on the weekends when I have more time. Try it! I promise you will love it too!
