Loved the tators

Is anyone reading this bloggie anymore?

Just had to send a shout-out for Pioneer Woman's Crash Hot Potatoes. I made them last night and totally loved them. And for Heather to really enjoy something she cooked... now that's sayin' something.

I mixed butter (ok - not really butter as I never buy butter.. I used margarine) with the olive oil to spread on top.

ISO that yummy gooey cookie dessert

Just wondering if anyone would be so kind to post their favorite pizooki... pezuku.. pazukee recipe. :) I'm excited to read all about it so share all the gooey info, please. Thanks!

Modern Midwestern Naan Bread

Wade here.

I hate to tell you, but it's just homemade pizza crust, then you use a pizza cutter to create full-thickness blimp-pattern lines in it before baking.
1 cup warm water
1 1/3 T yeast
1/2 t sugar
1 t salt
3 cups flour
Add a little water while kneading (for 8 minutes by hand or mixer) until it has the right bread dough consistency.
Bake at 400F for 15 minutes (pull it out momentarily at 9 minutes to put the cheese on).

It sounds very ancient and traditional, doesn't it? Actually I think this is adapted from Aunt Pat's pizza dough recipe. There is a way to make it that takes 3 days while you wait for the yeast to naturally occur, but it tastes about the same, gets eaten in 10 minutes, and this year we are midwesterners, not middle-easterners.

Oh, this is the tip of a small iceberg of good food from over there. To make it really good, completely coat it with sesame seeds.
