Not just any food...cooking with Jenn and Yan!








Yan and I recently tried our hand at some new recipes lately. One night we made a "Veggie Pizza" and a "Fruit Pizza". The fruit pizza is so yummy and one of my favorites...it consists of a sugar cookie crust, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla mixture for the icing, and any fruit you choose to go on top. Yummmm!
The veggie pizza was new to us, but we had it at our friend Rebecca's house. It consists of a cresent roll base (though next time we will use two packages, because it was a bit thick-lay it flat on a cookie sheet to cook), a block of cream cheese, a small container of sour cream and a package of powdered ranch dressing. Mix it up and put it on the semi cooled, baked crescent roll bottom. Next, take a bag of shredded veggies (like the broccoli/carrot mix you can buy) and sprinkle that on top. Top it off with some shredded cheese and you have a yummy treat. We're actually going to make another one this evening.
The last picture was of a beautiful cantelope...wanna know why it was so special? Well, I GREW IT!!! Woooohoooo, a minor success of my first year gardening. Unfortunately, I did not have as much success with the beans, tomatoes and cucumbers...but it looks like we will have more cantelopes, many pumpkins, and some watermelons very soon! WOOOHOOO!!

Veggie and fruit pizzas are the best. I haven't made one in a long time, but they are great to take along to get togethers as they always go over well.

Yan is too cute and it looks like she had a great time helping make them.
