Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

1 cup Milk
1 tsp. Salt
1 Tbs. Sugar
2 Tbs. Shortening
1 Tbs. Yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. In a small saucepan, scald milk and add to salt, sugar, and shortening in a mixing bowl. Let cool. Mix in dissolved yeast and flour. Let rise, then roll out on a greased pizza pan. Top with pizza sauce and desired toppings. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.

Pizza Sauce:
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. pepper

Mix all ingredients together and spread on pizza dough.

Toppings: mozzerella cheese, pepperoni, ham, pineapple, olives, peppers, sausage, onions, mushrooms, anchovies (just kidding!!)

Hint: want to make BBQ chicken pizza? Spread on BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce and top with cheese and cut up cooked chicken!
Hint: Want to make whole wheat dough? Instead of 3 cups AP flour, add 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups AP flour!
