Today I had the great pleasure of spending the day with my grandson. He is always a happy child and he has a way to make your day shine when he’s around. He loves cooking “making recipe” as he calls it.
He spent a few hours with his Nanny having a fun snack at the local cookie store. Then home with Nana to spend the afternoon. We cuddled in the lazy boy and watched a few movies then decided to “make recipe” Pizza night.
We took a rotisserie chicken breast and a leg quarter, (we deboned it), had artichoke hearts ( cut into bite size pieces) a 1/2 jar of Bertolli Garlic Alfredo sauce that was left over from other meals within the week I had left over. We warmed the Alfredo sauce in small pot with about 1 heaping tsp. of Smoked Paprika, a few shakes of Tabasco (jalapeño blend) and about two heaping tbs. of Kraft’s Parmesan & Romano blend cheese (I always that handy in keep in my fridge). We made our homemade pizza dough set that aside covered for 45 mins to rise. I then took, ground beef, 8 strips of bacon cut up in to tiny pieces, Canadian bacon (cut to bite size), diced ham & a handful or two of “Holy Trinity” (see reference items) I browned all the meats with a few seasonings of choice.
Our dough was ready we divided it, a personal for J, a deep dish for the all meat mixture, and a thin for the artichoke, chicken Alfredo pizza. We worked our dough baked each for about 7 mins. for the two larger pizzas and about 4 mins. for J’s pizza. Removed from oven then layered our pizza sauce the meats, then topped with Lots of Mozzarella cheese. Bake on Pizza setting (some ovens may not have pizza setting so if your oven does not just set to bake) at 425 degrees for about 20-30 mins. for the deep dish, about 10-20 mins. for the thin and about 10-12 mins. for the personal pizza depending on amount of toppings.
I have decided to start a blog to help my family and friends learn how to cook my cajun family recipes. My motivation to start this blog was my mother, who always cooked from sight, as do many great cajun cooks. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer disease and as a result will never again be able to share family recipes. Many people who were blessed to have tasted her dishes called her a great cook. We enjoyed her cooking, but never thought we would face the day that we couldn’t call her for directions to recreate any of the dishes she cooked. Each child having their own personal favorites. I also cook from sight, which creates problems for passing down recipes for future generations. My children, grandchildren and nieces & nephews, are my other motivation for blogging my information. They are basically forcing me to get my recipes out of my head and on to paper. A cookbook is in my future, on the bucket list for my brother and myself., so until it is mastered this will have to do. I will try my best to post many of my passions from Photography, traveling and of course recipes and cooking videos, something to mimic looking over your parent’s shoulder at the stove! I hope you enjoy my blogs and especially my cooking! Bon Appetite!
