Recipes No One Uses Anymore

Let me start off by saying that I know that the title of the post is a broad statement. However, many of these recipes have been long forgotten and never ended up being passed down through the family even though many of them used to be everyday essentials for families.

Have you ever looked at old family photos from the holidays, looked at the table and just said, “What is that jello mold?” I think most of us have at one time or another wondered how some of the older generation could stomach some of the recipes of the past.

Cheeseburger Pizza with No Yeast Dough

Pizza…Pizza…Pizza! We all, well most people, like or love pizza and Sean is no exception to the love of pizza. One of this favorite pizzas is probably meat lover but he also loves Cheeseburger pizza. I believe he first had it at a restaurant we went to once but he fell in love with it.

Personally I didn’t really like the pizza from the restaurant, which was years ago, but I figured I would give it a try at home. However, I ran into a little trouble when I looked into my pantry.

No yeast… I am the kind of baker that has a stock of ingredients but for some reason I didn’t have any yeast in stock. The most basic dough recipe is flour, baking soda, water, salt and some kind of fat either butter or oil. If rolled thin enough this most basic dough recipe can make a nice crispy flat bread or if left a bit thicker it can turn out to be a soft crust. I like the thin crispy crust better.

Little’s Love Applesauce

So… This past week has been a crazy week for my house. Believe it or not Bennita’s house functions off chaos like one tent shy of a full blown circus. JUST KIDDING but seriously very busy getting stuff ready for a giant Halloween block party to help a sick little boy celebrate what might be his last Halloween, making sure costumes for 7 people are figured out, prepping for a bake sale we are doing, filling orders (I work as a designer for a custom products company), and making sure the kids get to school and the husbands get to work (Here is when I should mention I own a home with my mom and dad and my siblings live her too soooo there are 7 of us. Traditional Hawaiian household!) is truly exhausting so quick and easy and picky eater friendly is always on the menu.
