Behold…A quick homemade pizza!

I  am going to let you in on a little secret…I am a person who if they really want something, they will get it one way or another. And, if I have some sort of a craving, I have to fulfill it, maybe not right away, but still…The thought about my craving will interfere in some way until  I get it over with.

Yesterday, my desire for pizza got a hold of me. I did not want to spend any money, though. So what a better way to get over a craving for something than get working on cooking it? (that is, if we are talking about foods, of course) Plus, if prepared, the pizza will not be just for me, but for my whole family…I actually had everything to make pizza in my fridge, so why not make it?

Behold…A quick homemade pizza is coming

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons of sour cream, 9 tablespoons of flour, 2 eggs, 4 tablespoons of mayo + anything you have in your fridge that you think will make a good pizza (I took olives, feta cheese, regular cheese to sprinkle on the pizza, tomatoes, special pizza sauce (you can buy it in any store nowadays), sausage, fresh basil, red pepper, an onion, oregano) I have to say I completely forgot about mushrooms, but you can try it and tell me how they mix in there as well.

The Works:

Mix sour cream, flour, eggs and mayo in a large bowl. * What you will get is sort of  dough, very liquid, if not, just add more eggs…Pour the mixture in a frying pan, greased with butter.

Then, comes the fun part! Slice and dice all of your favorite ingredients for your pizza, add pizza sauce, sprinkle some cheese on it and….DONE!All you have to do now is just put it on the stove for several minutes with a closed lid. When the cheese starts to melt..

YOUR PIZZA IS READY!

Some thoughts and feedback: I put a lot of stuff on the pizza, so there was a lot of juices flowing around. The result was, my own war with the frying pan, as it was hard to get it out of it. I let it cool for a while, thinking that it would make it easier, it actually did make it so, but the downside was, the pizza was cold! The lesson is to pour the mixture in a better frying pan. This one was kind of old…Plus, maybe it would be better to put it in the oven…It might actually consume less time.

The happy side of it all, this baby was tasty, and did not take a lot of time. All of it about 20 minutes. It tasted like a Margarita. Once again, took me back to Italy!  I think this would be a nice addition to my New Years fancy table plans. A nice entree so to speak….So, just wait for my New Years table menu!

So what came first, a chicken or an egg? – Fried chicken for dinner!

After a long and busy morning I just needed something to relax. What’s better than cooking? Cooking chicken in the oven! A simple, yet deligtful dish…And again, it does not take a long time to make it. All you need is just some spices, sauces, a tiny bit of passion and your own hands.

I took every second I had before work to prepare this one. Most of the work is done by the oven though, so I did not exactly go here by the name of the greatest chef in the world. If anything, the winner of this title would be my hardworking oven.

The secret is:

Take about 1.5 kg of chicken, 2 table spoons of mayo, 2 of mustard, any spices you would like to shine through, salt, pepper, 3-4 cloves of garlic, some honey.

The Works:

Put your chicken into a large bowl, mix in all the ingredients. * I advise you use your hands to mix. Make sure all the chicken is covered with this magical stuff. Honey will actually make your chicken look golden in color.

Next step is to preheat your oven. * You can actually do it while you are preparing the chicken. Temperature to the highest one possible when the logic behind it is to let your chicken fry faster, so it would not be dry inside. Get it in and wait for about 30 minutes! YOUR CHICKEN IS READY!

A great recipe for someone who does not like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen (yes, even I have moments like this)
