Failure and Success

Tonight for dinner I made a Pepperoni Pizza using leftover Bolognase Sauce from earlier this week. I substituted Honey for the sugar in the Dough Recipe and assembled it on my pizza stone instead of trying to figure out how to move it once assembled. The End result? Well it was ok I guess, the dough seemed under cooked, and really soft on the bottom while the top was about to burn.

I was lamenting over my failure of pizza (which does not happen very often) and trying to figure out exactly where I went wrong. As I did this I drank a cup of coffee with White chocolate caramel latte creamer and ate a yummy Mini Pumpkin chocolate chip muffin.

Finally it hit me. I am not a failure of a cook, the Mini Muffins were scrumptious even at 3 days old. I will just have to figure out where I went wrong and dust off my apron and make a better pizza next time. I have had many Successes in the Kitchen and I will not let an ok/ not my favorite pizza get me down.

As for the Coffee and Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins I am going to enjoy them and let them heal my hurts lol.



Wonton Wrapper Experiment #1: Pizza

I had this crazy Idea to do an experiment with wonton wrappers, mainly because I have never used them before and thought they might be quite useful. So I went out and bought a package and started my experiment.

The first thing I tried. Wonton Wrapper Pizza! We had make your own pizza night  last night and had some ingredients left so me and my son whipped up a quick snack.

It was quick the recipe is simple

  • 8 wonton wrappers
  • 8 pepperoni slices
  • 1 string cheese (cut in half, then in each half quartered)
  • olive oil for pan
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • pizza sauce for dipping

Heat up medium skillet, Add oil. Lay out 8 wrappers, place on slice of pepperoni in the middle of each followed by 1 piece of cheese. Wet your finger and run along the edges of each wrapper to get wet. Fold in half. Place them all in the skillet ( or in batches if needed). Brown on both side about a minute each. Remove from heat and pour the rest of the water in pan putting lid on as fast as you can. (watch out for splattering) Let sit about a minute then remove cool and enjoy 🙂

This was super simple, my kids said it was the best snack ever! You gotta love that.
