I adore pizza!

No matter how many raw fruits and veggies I eat...........I will never give up my pizza!
My pizza made in the oven.

I made this the other night with the following simple ingredients:

1 cup warm water
1 package yeast, sprinkle of sugar, Tbsp. olive oil
2 cups flour (you can do half white, half whole wheat)
tomatoes from a local farm
shredded mozarella
rosemary

And this is what I did:

1) dissolve package of yeast in 1 cup water.
let sit for 5 min. Add sprinkle of sugar, and Tbsp. of olive oil.

2) Put the yeast mixture into a large bowl.

3) add 2 cups flour, mix, and let sit for about 10-15 min.(note: the longer you let this dough sit, the "breadier" it will become)

4) I coat my pizza stone with olive oil and put the dough on it. I flour my hand
and press it down and out.

5) I then generously coat the top with olive oil and BAKE THE CRUST FIRST, for about
15 min, or until lightly browned. ( I bake it @ 400 degrees)

6) next, I take it out and add the sliced tomatoes, mozarella, and rosemary (on my section)

7) bake for about 10 min. on bottom rack, then maybe 5-10 min on top rack, depending on how brown you like it.

And that's it!


After I plate my pieces up, I'll add cracked black pepper and some sea salt and I'm good to go! :) Yummy!


If you ever have any questions about any of my recipes, please feel free to contact me, or leave a comment:)

I am so looking forward to fall..........the cooler temps make me want to bake more. I see banana bread and chicken pot pie in my future! Until next time my friends...............

Published in Somerset Studio's ART Journaling magazine gallery section Spring 2014!

Great news! Some of my journal pages were selected to be published in one of my favorite magazines..........ART Journaling!!

Stampington & Company is such a wonderful resource for artists who create in many different mediums. You can find this magazine and more on their website @ http://stampington.com.

The first page of the gallery section has little snippets of what you will see in the coming pages. Mine is on the far right (birdies on a branch)


Here is the two page layout.........yay!

I'm so happy with the results!

Here is a closeup of the first page:


I created this page after being outside one day early in the morning. I was watching birds on a branch of this bush and they were so cute, just kinda hanging around. I was feeling overwhelmed by life and that's where the sentiment came from. "Birdies on a branch, how lucky you are...........you can just fly away." I wanted to be one of those birds.
The truth that I have learned and accepted in my life by faith is…

I am an artist

I am an artist. But there are blocks of time when I just don't feel like creating.

I just started creating again. I love to alter antique cabinet cards. I think each one has a story to tell. I look at the facial expressions in the photo and listen to what it speaks to me.

Here are a few samples:


This one is called, "no matter the weather". It can be the most beautiful day outside, but if you are hurting.......it's all rain.

The next is called, "she dreams of home".
Oh, how she dreams of home, where she can be a little girl again. And this one is called, "mended memories".

She remembers the past, and the pain she's endured. The Lord has stitched up her heart.........many, many times.

Lately, I have been interested in creating things like I've never done before, like abstract painting and sewing. I will post some of those finished projects soon.

If you're an artist and you haven't created in a while, don't be discouraged. Yo…

Keeping it simple

I love healthy food, and lately I've been trying some new things. I am keeping the recipes quick and simple.

Today, I am having a cucumber drizzled with Trader Joe's spicy peanut dressing sprinkled with sesame seeds. Hydrating and yummy!

Healthy food doesn't have to be expensive or time consuming. And honestly, when I eat more simple "mini-meals", I feel better because I know they are easily digested.

I don't eat healthy every second of every day, but I am achieving more balance. And today, that's what I'm grateful for.
