BBQ Chicken Pizza Verdict

Look how scrumptious this looks......It tasted even better!  My family couldn't stop talking about how it was the best pizza they had ever had....that is my husband and oldest daughter.  The little ones stuck to their cheese version. 
After the bread machine...aka "the black panther", was done doing all of the hard work.  We let it rise in a warm microwave.  Here's a tip for you: if you need dough to rise quickly.  Put a cup of water in a microwave safe cup of course in the microwave for 4 minutes on high.  When finished remove the cup quickly and place your dough  with a tee towel in the microwave.  Do it quick so to keep the steam locked in.  It works like a charm!  
All Time Best Pizza Dough  It's worth keeping in your rotation!

Orange Julius Verdict

Made Orange Julius this morning with the kids breakfast. But I altered it a touch as I was worried about how much sugar was in the recipe.  Swapped the sugar with Agave and didn't add as much frozen orange juice concentrate.

One of my kids really liked it and the other didn't.....It took me back to childhood and walking through the mall with my Orange Julius treat.  Yummy!  So, give it a whirl and see what you think.

The Granola was a hit!  I took some to our Rally....Did I tell you our new Spring/Summer line of jewelry and it "SMOKIN HOT!.......Everyone loved it!

Couple extras I added.....Got some Orange infused dried cranberries from Sprouts and used Organic Shredded Unsweetened Coconut.  The cranberries added that touch of sweetness.

It was great in my favorite coffee cup with milk but just as yummy as a snack.  Try it out....your family and friends will be putty in your hands. Wink Wink!
