1 lb. ground beef (I used hot ground sausage).
1 jar pasta sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can (11 oz) refridgerated pizza dough
any desired pizza toppings (the recipe suggested brocolli, but ew.)
-brown ground beef in skillet, drain. Season with salt and pepper (I used Italian Seasoning). Stire in sauce; bring to boil. Turn into baking dish.
-top with toppings; then cheese. Press dough over dish, sealing edges.
-bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until crust is golden. Let set for 10 minutes.
I thought it was a little too saucey... sooo, I'd either line the baking dish with dough as well before I put in sauce and beef or I wouldn't use as much sauce... Probably the first of the two though. OH, and please excuse my dirty oven. I had just finished using it ;)

1 can condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. seafood seasoning
1 lb. cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined. (to me, the end result was really saucy and next time I think I'll use 2 lbs of shrimp. Sage and I each only had one burrito and there was only enough left over for one more)
4 flour tortillas (10 inch). warmed.
1/2 cup shredded cheddar-monterey jack cheese
1 cup torn romaine lettuce, chopped
-In a large skillet, combine the first six ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until cream cheese is melted and blended. Stir in shrimp; heat through. (only took about 10 minutes and the shrimp i used were still frozen.)
-Spoon 2/3 cup filling off center on each tortilla. Sprinkly each with 2 tbsp. cheese. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Serve with lettuce.

1/2 package hot sausage (i didn't use the links, i just used the ground up kind).
1/2 package mild sausage
1 green bell pepper
1 jar spaghetti sauce with mushrooms (i don't think it had enough mushrooms, so next time i'd add more)
Italian seasoning, garlic powder, basil
Pasta of your choice
-pour jar of spaghetti sauce in pan and heat at medium heat, add sliced bell pepper and mushrooms. Cover the sauce or else it will get messy! Add Italian seasoning to taste (I like lots!), and just a few dashes of garlic powder and dry basil.
-At the same time, cook pasta AND in a 10 inch pan cook sausage until brown, breaking it into smaller pieces.
-When sausage is finished cooking, drain juices and add it to the sauce. Mix together. You can add the pasta to the sauce or serve seperately.
Cut up a chicken breast (or how many ever you desire)
Put in slow cooker with 2 cups of BBQ sauce of your choice for either 4 hrs on high or 6-8 hrs on low.
We didn't have much in the pantry so I served it with rice and green beans.. Weird? ya Sage thought so too. But, I think it would be yummy on a hamburger bun, like a sloppy joe or something.

Ingredients for teriyaki sauce:
1 cup soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
I used two chicken breasts and cut them into about 2 inch slices. The sauce about will be enough for one chicken breast, so double the recipe if you'll be makings two. Bring sauce to a boil, add chicken and bring to a boil again. Turn down to a simmer. Sage's mom uses full chicken thighs and simmers the chicken in the sauce for about 45 minutes. Two sliced chicken breasts only took about 25 minutes! Just keep checking. I made white rice and steamed a premade veggie pack that I got from Fresh and Easy. We had just enough left overs for one of us to eat it for lunch the next day.
12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon mustard
2 cups cornflakes, finely crushed
dash black pepper
-Preheat oven to 450. Cut chicken into 3x3/4 inch strips. In a shallow dish, combine egg, honey, and mustard. In another dish, stir together cornflake crumbs and pepper.
-dip chicken strips into egg mix; roll in crumb mix to coat. Arrange chicken strips on ungreased baking sheet.
-bake about 12 min, or until golden and chicken is not pink.
1/4 cup dijon + 1 tsp honey = honey mustard (sage thought there was too much dijon and not enough honey in this one)
1/4 cup ketchup + pinch chili powder = ketchup with a kick
1/2 cup sour cream + lime + cilantro + zesty sour cream
1/2 cup mayo + 1 tsp dried dill + 1 tsp garlic powder = spiced mayo.
I only tried the first dip, so i'm not sure how the others taste. I served this with salad and steamed red potatoes that I cut in half. Yum. I used the leftovers to top a salad for lunch the next day! It makes tons too, so you'll have PLENTY of leftovers if you're just cooking for two. I think I got this recipe out of a magazine... Shape or Fitness or something. Sorry no picture!

So Im posting this for my dear friend Brookie because her internet isnt working… I took her camera and did a horrible job at returning it and posting this blog, sorry Brooke! So the story behind the name of this lov-e-ly treat is that when ever my husband eats it he tells me…. “Seriously hun, if you ever make me really really mad, just make this and it will be like nothing even happened!” So as you can see, this is amazing so try it and you are guaranteed to LOVE it.
Im guessing this is eye balled because there isnt measurments on the paper she gave me…
-2 Cans Homestyle Pillsbury Rolls ( cut into pieces and also mixed in below mixture)
-Butter (when we did it we put chuncks of it), Brown Sugar & Cinnamon mixture. (and she mixed it all together with her hands)
*Bake at 350 until golden brown (Shouldnt be too gooey because the sauce will make it extra gooey)
-1 Cup Soft Butter, 3-5 Cups Powdered Sugar (depends on the thickness you want) 1Tbsp pure vanilla, 1/2 Cup Whipping Cream, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
*slowly heat and mix with whisk until smooth. Then poor over Monkey Bread and enjoy deliciousness!
