The not so secret adventure in the kitchen this week!

Hi Everyone,

This weekend was a worldwind of movies and
 Scrapbooking 2 of my fav activities outside of reading..
I attended the Collins Group Convention in Orlando and did the make and take for Cosmo Cricket and the cards were just so cute, reconnect with Claudine Helmuth she use to live here in Orlando before moving to DC..  Spent sometimes with my pal Jackie and chit chatting with the store owners, it was very refreshing to see the amount of husband that was there to support their wives in their business..

After all that yummy goodness I had no energy to cook, but it so happen in the freezer I always have frozen dough in case of an emergency.. they always come in handy for Pizza.

I made Margherita Pizza with loads of mozarella, feta cheese and vine ripe tomatoes..
It wasn't until we were almost done eating I remember to take pics..below..

Margherita Pizza with a twist of Feta cheese:
1.Roll out the dough, spread land o lake unsalted butter, very sparingly, then put in the oven for 5 mtes at 300 degrees, remove from the oven.
2.Add mozzarella cheese on the warm dough, layer of Italian seasoning  (basil, oregano, thyme).
3.Add layer of tomatoes, feta cheese, another layer of mozarella, a bit of black pepper, red pepper flakes, bake at 375 for 10mtes until cheese is melted..

The dessert below, after watching Julie & Julia the movie, I was inspired to conquer making the pear cake for my sister's bday. Conquer it I did, after baking DH said if he didn't see me baked it, he would have thought I purchased it, which is high praise indeed...

Here is the recipe on Martha Stewart, I added almond to it. Pear Cake
