When I take a break from my card making you will usually find me in the kitchen. I love to share recipes with family and friends so I created this blog.

Pizza with Jalepeno's

This was a quick lunch when my cupboards were empty. Fortunately I had these pre-made pizza crusts, sauce and some cheese. Scrounged up some tomatoes and always have jalapenos.

so here is a quick photo as I was preparing these mini pizzas.

 Sauce, tomatoes, jalepenos and some italian seasoning. I rub the pizza's with olive oil and bake them for 10 minutes BEFORE I add the toppings. I love a crunchy crust!

Add some of your favorite shredded cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes at 375.

Quaker Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies

Hello and welcome. Whenever I need this recipe I can never find it and that's partly why I am staring this blog. I am also hoping that my friends and family will join in to share their tried and true recipes and give us a forum to communicate a little more. Stay tuned because you will find lots of recipes from Sheila who inspires me on a monthly basis as I watch her cook delicious meals in her kitchen for a group of us.
