Here are two recipes from our menu plan.

Inside-Out Pizza

2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 T. yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 T. agave nectar or honey
1 cup warm water
4 T. olive oil

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Start with the water and yeast and mix them together and let sit for about 5 minutes, until foamy. Add the remaining ingredients and knead for about 5 minutes. Roll the dough out into a circle, about the size of a large pizza. I use our large, round pizza pan for this. On half of the dough, spread your pizza sauce and sprinkle with cheese. You can also add other ingredients if you would like. Fresh herbs and cheese are really good.  After that step, take the side that has nothing on it and fold it over the sauce and cheese. Now you are ready to bake. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.


I never really measure anything for this but I will do my best. You may have to add a little or less of the seasonings.

3 cups of elbow pasta, can use any type of small pasta
1 small can of tomato sauce
About 3/4 of a cup of sucanat to sweeten, you can use any sweetener of your choice
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring to boil about 5-6 cups of water. Add your pasta and tomato sauce. Bring it back up to a boil and add your sweetener, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat until pasta is done.

  1. This all looks so yummy! It has been a while since we made those cookies. The last ones we tried were peanut butter with a Nutella swirl and they worked with the freshly ground flour. I am interested in that crockpot soup.
