Mommy Hates Cooking

Lesson Learned

This is ‘Mommy Hates Cooking’. I am in no way an expert on cooking, and may not even be a beginner. Maybe a pre-beginner! I am using this blog as a way to share my tips on cooking from the perspective of a busy, working mom who really does not like to cook; however, I do not have a choice! Most of the recipes I fix have very few ingredients and are simple because like I said I’m learning. The majority actually turn out really good; however, there are a few that just don’t!

When my husband and I were newlyweds, we learned to love cooking pizza’s at home! This is a picture of the monstrosity that I came home to one night where my husband used just about every piece of meat and veggies we had in the house to make a pizza! He hid everything with a mound of cheese! I could not even eat it because it had so much on it! He was so proud of it, he took a picture!

We have not made a pizza at home in a few years, but I found a great pizza recipe using picante sauce as a base. I started off cooking this fabulous pizza, which smelt so good. Then, I got side tracked and completely forgot about it! Let’s just say, I could have refurbished it as a Frisbee!

Lesson Learned: Find out how where the oven timer is located and learn to use it!

    I do this with Mason's grilled cheeses all the time- they make great discs!

    Oh! One's actually burning right now… crap.

    Oh yes I've done that with grilled cheese too! I need a new skillet though!

    Hope it wasn't too burnt for Mason :)

    Hi, Love your website. I found making pizza and bread stick I use Rhodes Frozen dough balls.
    I take out how many personal pizza I need to make and breaksticks. In Refrigerator all day to thaw
    (you can use the faster way by leaving them out of refrigerator and seating around ware oven.
    I have used Microwave but put a cup of water in the microwave when doing this.)
    Then when thawed shape out bread stick on cookie sheet. Let raise… When it time to make the
    pizza roll out dough (my family like doing this) I would have Contadina Pizza Sauce, 15-Ounce Squeeze
    (love this pizza sauce), and what topping we enjoy. KIDS and Husband love doing this… because
    they did it them self. I found that is Frozen dough can make lots of things… ENJOY!
