Veggie Pizza

 I have a New Year's Eve recipe for you.  Veggie Pizza!  It's easy to make.  It's yummy.  It makes a lot, so you can share it at your New Year's Eve party.  You can eat it with your fingers!  And it has veggies on it, so that makes it healthy.  (Right?  Ha!)

 
This veggie pizza is one of my favorite things to take to share with a crowd.  I forgot about it for a few years, but then was really excited when I remembered it.  My friend, Julia, has a great recipe for it on her blog with some fun twists (like different dressings you can use for the "sauce").

It's super simple to make.  The crust is just baked crescent roll dough.  You can make your own, or be like me and let Pillsbury do the work.  I bought the little crescent roll tubes that pop open.  I tried the seamless dough sheets instead of the regular crescent roll dough and it worked great.  I didn't have to piece the crescent roll triangles together to make a whole crust.

The "sauce" layer is a simple cream cheese ranch spread.  It's simple and easy and yummy.  If you have any leftover you should probably smear it on a cracker or dip some veggies into it.  Yum!

The topping options are endless.  You can do any combination of veggies: broccoli, cucumbers, bell peppers, little tomatoes, etc.  I like to shred carrots over the top.  It's like the cheese on a traditional pizza.

2 tubes refrigerated crescent roll dough

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

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden
