Happy Monday everyone! Before I get to my menu for this week, here's my recipe for pizza pockets that I made this last week.

BBQ Chicken Pizza Pockets

Quick Pizza Dough
BBQ sauce
chopped cooked chicken
cheddar & monterey jack cheese
spinach, finely chopped
turkey bacon, crisped and chopped
green onions, finely sliced

Prepare Quick Pizza Dough. Mix chicken, BBQ sauce, spinach, turkey bacon and green onions together in a bowl. Roll dough out in small sections. Spread BBQ sauce on half of the dough. Scoop chicken mixture on top of sauce-covered dough. Top with cheese. Pull the other half of the dough over the chicken mixture forming a pocket. Press down the edges. Place on baking sheet. Brush with olive oil & garlic salt. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
