Bubble-Up Pizza


I've been wanting to make this Bubble-Up Pizza forever, and it finally made the menu.  I think the main reason it's never really been a priority is because it seems too easy, and with the "too easy recipe raves" on Pinterest, I'm often completely underwhelmed.

This was not the case.  No, this is not a recipe that I'm going to serve at a big family dinner, but it is a great addition to our rotation of quick and easy weeknight meals that will satisfy the entire family.  As with many easy recipes like this, it is easy to vary it up and it can be like a new meal each time you make it!  Next time I think I'm going to try the enchilada version I've seen floating around.

Bubble-Up Pizza
Ingredients:
12 Refrigerated Biscuits (Pillsbury), or more if using smaller than the "standard" size
1 jar pizza sauce, or just under 2 cups homemade
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup favorite pizza toppings - pepperoni, cooked bacon, mushrooms, sliced peppers, etc.
Fresh Basil for garnish

Directions:
Preheat oven as indicated on the biscuit cans.  Cut each biscuit in to 4 pieces.

In a large bowl, combine dough pieces, sauce, toppings and cheese.  Set aside about 1/2 a cup of cheese for topping.

Pour mixture in to a prepared skillet or baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes and top with chopped basil.  Bake for another 5 minutes until biscuits are cooked through.

Serve immediately.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too!


White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling
Ingredients:
1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor
1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened
1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed
3 oz. White Chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes).

Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated.

Stir in melted white chocolate.

Fold in thawed Cool Whip

Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get too cold that it…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.
