Yes, I know it's January. And no, I'm not crazy. I'm lazy. I took pictures of my super cute Thanksgiving treats that I brought to school for my students, and then didn't post about them. But now I will, because they're cute. I just love these things. I didn't actually eat any of them, but they're just so darn cute! Did I mention they're cute? Okay, enough of that. Here they are.
You can probably figure out how I made them, but I'll brake it down for you anyway because if I didn't, then this blog post would be over, and, well, I like to talk... er, type.
It's really simple. You take a fudge stripe cookie and turn it upside-down. Then you take yellow frosting (white frosting with yellow food coloring, obviously) and smear it all over the bottom of a fun size peanut butter cup and smoosh it down onto the upside-down cookie so that the frosting oozes out around the edges. Then you take an orange mini M&M and place it on the yellow frosting for the buckle. That's all, folks! This is a really easy, quick, and cute Thanksgiving treat!

Wowza! These past few months have been chaotic! With preparing for the holidays and all the various sicknesses that have made their way through our household, we've been very busy. But today I've decided to make time to post one of my family's new favorite recipes. This one is a hit with everyone, and, well, it's just plain fun!
I got the idea here, and pretty much followed it exactly. But here's what I did.
Here's what you'll need:
1 roll of thin crust refrigerated pizza dough
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top
Olive oil or butter to brush on top
Italian seasoning to sprinkle on top
Whatever toppings you like (I used pepperoni)
Then I chopped up a bunch of pepperoni. That's what the hubby likes.
Then place the dough balls into a baking dish.
It should look something like this when it's done. Mine looks a little funny on the right end because I made a few cheese-only ones for myself and marked them with some mozzarella on the top. I know, brilliant, right?
These things are awesome! And they're fun, too! My whole family loves them. They're great for kids. And, I haven't tried this yet, but I think they'd freeze well. That way, you could just pop them in the oven from the freezer and have a nice quick meal! I am so going to try that.
