Weekend Cooking

Here is my weekend of cooking in pictures. I would like to note that I've never made my own pizza crust before. I'm actually afraid of yeast, and try to avoid making anything that requires it. Except I did make The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls one year. They are pretty darn good. I got myself PW's cookbook for Christmas and was drooling looking through it again this weekend. Acme was out of the frozen dough I usually get, so I thought, "Time to get over it. Make your own." So, I did. And, it was fabulous. 

The boy loves a good spatula

Blueberry pancakes, nom nom nom. Love my griddle!

Popeyes a la The Pioneer Woman. When we used to make these at camp,
we put 2 slices of bacon over the eggs, but I didn't have any. Hear that PW? Add bacon!

PW's pizza crust (from the cookbook)

Tidy Mom's Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Cake, made into a trifle. I've made this before with perfect results, but this time my filling came out runny. I blame the natural peanut butter. The family and I walked this over to our sweet neighbors, who used their snowblower to help us with the end of our driveway in the recent snow storms. They (and their teenagers) also dug out our elderly neighbors.
I love seeing neighbors helping neighbors.


  1. That chocolate fudge PB cake turned trifle looks delish ... Can you send one my way?

    I find it amusing that you are "afraid" of yeast. Looks like you are slowly overcoming your phobia though! Good job!

  2. I know, I have weird phobias. Thanks for loving me anyway:)
