Weekend Cookin'

Lately my weekends have been filled with nothing but loads of school work. This weekend was no exception, although I managed to fit in some quality time with my kitchen. Friday night I decided to whip up a homemade pizza. After wrestling with the dough for a while, I started to question my decision and wondered if we would have to end up calling Papa John's. But in the end it turned out great. I had forgotten just how much I love homemade pizza.

Saturday night I decided to make some good ole' Southern comfort food...chicken and dumplings. Accompanied by cheese muffins, they were the perfect weekend supper.

I also managed to take a study break long enough to hit up the Vogue pattern sale at JoAnn's. I found some amazing designer patterns (Alice + Olivia, Badgley Mischka, Anna Sui, and Issey Miyake). Now I'm dying to sew. School is seriously getting in my way of becoming a star on Project Runway =)

Did you spend anytime in the kitchen this weekend? I'd love to know what you whipped up!

I actually made a wild mushroom & barley soup on saturday- and pumpkin muffins on Sunday for a football party. But that's about it. I was super busy all weekend!

I actually whipped up a homemade pizza too on Sunday afternoon and we watched the Saints game. Then that afternoon, I made red velvet cake ball (but I didn't dip them in white chocolate until Monday night. Letting them freeze for a while is the best way to do it!).

You can’t beat homemade pizza. The dough is a lot of work, but so delicious. I remember my grandmother and I making it when I was little. I love turkey pepperoni so much better than the regular kind.

The chicken and dumplings and biscuits look seriously delicious. It’s making me hungry!

Once you get the time to sew, I look forward to seeing some of your new outfits.
