Weekend Thick Pan Pizza

Pizza+085

  Why do I call it “weekend” pizza? Well, from start to finish, it takes about 3 hours. This is a great recipe to make on the weekend when you’re home for the day and still able to keep an eye on the rising dough. We love pizza at my house. But I’ve never been […]

    Did you ever freeze ripe bananas? I know that seems strange but they freeze well if you leave the peel on. I find that vacuum-sealed bags work the best when you freeze any kind of food. When you want to make a banana bread, you just need to thaw the frozen bananas and […]
