Yeastless Pizza

Ugh, pandemic 2020 is turning into a real deal.  This table has not had fast food since the second week of March.  A whole five weeks free of fast food, junk food, bad food.  The cravings are real, the withdrawal is worse, and the mental draw is exhausting.  Needing a fix for fast bad food, a 15 Minute Pizza Dough was located and toppings were based upon availability at the store.

Modifications Made:
Not having a food processor to make the homemade five minute pizza sauce, a store bought brand was used.  Wanting a thicker pizza sauce, the sauce was simmered until desired thickness was reached.  Simmering also develops the flavors more and if needed, additional seasonings can be added to create your own flavors.

Scaled for Likability: Good
This is not high quality pizza but it better than many of the frozen pies in a box.  The dough itself could have used a little more salt (something I NEVER say) however, the final result was warm and soft with a nice crust on the bottom.  Slathered with a garlic butter sauce smeared across the edges would have taken the crust to the next level.

For those who fear homemade breads, this dough was easy to make and very forgiving in rolling.  And dependent upon how cooked the dough resulted in a different crust.  The half pepperoni half cheese pizza was baked in a 10.5" cast iron skillet resulting in a soft pillowy crust.  The pineapple, salami, black olives was cooked on a 10.5" cast iron griddle resulting in a crispy crust.

When needing pizza in a hurry, this is a great go to recipe.  It will not be added to the T&T recipe but it will be added to the collection of emergency meals.

Better Than Campbell's Old Fashion Vegetable Soup

Went to the store with the hopes of gathering fresh produce for soup. With more than 45 people in line for two packages of any meat product and the produce section containing only avocado, orange, and most randomly, strawberries, I settled upon canned soup.  Well not canned soup since that section was still void of food, too.  Instead soup made from canned goods as the canned vegetable section had been mostly restocked. Soups like this 15 Minute Vegetable Soup  are ideal in dire food situations such as current times. Modifications Made: Plain petite diced tomatoes for flavored tomatoes, frozen carrots instead of canned, green beans and corn undrained, peas omitted (gross, nasty little pods), one can tomato sauce, two low sodium chicken and two pollo de tomate bouillon cubes, six cups water.  Once onions were softened, carrots, juice of green beans and corn, sauce, bouillon cubes, water were added and allowed to simmer until carrots almost tender.  Green beans and corn tossed in, heat t

Way Too Rich, Extra Heavy Cheesecake

Pictures are deceptive. What this picture of this recipe does not show is how old and faded the print out paper is, how many stains are smudged across various spots, and the numerous notes written in the top right corner with the first one dating back to college days in 2001.  Yikes, twenty years ago makes this paper print out old, no wait, that makes me old.  Eek.   Sadly, my current living quarters do not allow for cooking of this cheesecake.  In fact the last time this recipe has been made have been close to six or seven years.  That is just too long.  Too long.  Luckily, we are spending Spring Break at family with a real oven.  A family who will help eat this oh so rich, very decadent, supremely yummy cheesecake. Modifications Made: There are four keys to a successful cheesecake. ONE: all ingredients must be room temperature.  If your house is ice chest cold, then warm the ingredients on the stovetop. TWO: do not over mix.  Excessive mixing creates air pockets resulting in split mi

Parker Potato Folds

Last weeks Should Have Bread Rolls  sent me on a mission. A mission for smooth in texture, puffy with some weight, slight chewy dinner rolls. What I found when searching for dinner rolls was a recipe for lemon bread pudding staring Parker House rolls as the base. Never have I eaten, seen, heard about Parker House rolls. Apparently, Parker House rolls have a cult following.  After reading several sites noting slight differences in ingredients, King Arthur Baking recipe was used because it contained potato flakes and came with a great step by step photo blog. Dinner rolls for dinner and dinner rolls for dessert tomorrow. Perfect, perfect. Modifications Made: None.  Bread making skills are still lacking. Scaled for Likability: Good One day bread will be produced at this table that is county blue fair award winning.  Until then, lots of dense, under or over risen, too chewy, lacking fluffy bread and bread rolls will be consumed.  These Parker House rolls were very tasty just not made corr
