Chocolate Dessert Pizza

We had the family over for my grandmother's 88th birthday. We kept it pretty simple by ordering pizza since my brother and sister-in-law were in town and my brother misses St. Louis style pizza. In addition to the salad, pizza, wings, 2-types of garlic bread (1 with cheese, one without), there was dessert. In keeping with the pizza theme I made a chocolate pizza. OH.MY.GOD this was good. I must admit I was hesitant that it wouldn't turn out as well as it did because I had a h-e-l-l of a time rolling the dough and it ended up being a thicker crust than I desired. I'm sure it would have been just as good with a thiner crust but if you make this and have as hard of a time as I was then no worries - it'll still be fantastic!



Chocolate Pizza
adapted from this recipe of Giada DeLaurentiis's... my version listed below
Ingredients
2 rolls Pillsbury Recipe Creation Cresent Dough (fave semi-homemade thing EVER)
1/4-1/3 cup Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
2 Tablespoons Mini Chocolate Chips
3 ounces white chocolate, melted
2 Tablespoons Slivered Almonds, toasted
Directions
- Preheat oven to 375
- Knead both cans of cresent roll together, and roll-out on a floured surface to 14" circle. (I
wanted 14 but it ended up being more like 12" and thicker)
- Transfer rolled out dough to prepared pizza stone or cookie sheet, as desired, and bake about 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness) until pale golden
- Remove from oven and top hot crust evenly with Nutella spread
- Sprinkle with Chocolate Chips, Slivered Almonds and drizzle with melted chocolate
- Return to oven for 2-4 minutes or until chocolate chips begin to melt
- Remove and cut in to wedges, serve warm

* This is such a versatile recipe that can be transformed to whatever you're feeling like. I'm thinking next time I may try a s'mores pizza or a cookies 'n cream pizza!

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Classic Monkey Bread

For a few years I made monkey bread muffins for Christmas morning, and for some reason I got out of that habit. Then we had kids and I thought I'd get back in to it, but I didn't until recently. But I recently made classic loaf Monkey Bread and realized that it's just better than muffins. It's not like a loaf is any less "complicated" to make, or really tastes different, but there is something easier about it. And I haven't had a single loaf bubble over and cause a mess in my oven! I'm so happy to have brought this back in to our lives. Not that it takes long to put together or bake, but this is the perfect lazy weekend (or Christmas morning) breakfast. I have even started the process in advance before, by cutting the biscuits and measuring the sugar and cinnamon in a bag the night before. After all, the biscuit cutting is the most time consuming part. Wake, assemble, and voila! Do you have a big crowd to feed, or kids that devour sweets? Simply

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
