Easy Peazy Pizza Dough

I was sitting here thinking about what in the world I could make for lunch and really started craving PIZZA! Problem being it is well below freezing and the roads are pure ice outside. I have never tried creating a pizza dough of my own so I thought hmmm......why not. After all I still have 5 bags of flour in my pantry that I had found on sale. I Googled some basic recipes and they were ALL different.lol So I kinda winged it and combined them all to try to make what felt perfect to me.

2 Tsp Yeast
2 Tbsp Sugar
1.5 Cups of Warm Water
4.5 Cups of Flour
2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Oil

Now this is a fairly simple recipe because......well I enjoy simple. Start by mixing the yeast and sugar into a medium sized bowl. Pour the Water of the top and let sit for about 5 minutes. This will make the yeast active and it will get all foamy and smell kinda bad. :op Next mix together salt and 4 cups of flour and then mix into the yeast water. After you have combined this you will turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 10 minutes. Personally I hate this part and considered leaving it out.lol I didn't know how bad it would ruin the dough though. The remaining flour you may or may not need in order to keep the dough from sticking. After you have finished kneading the dough place into a bowl which you have oiled. Cover and let sit in a warm area for about an hour. Then when it is finished you can make your pizzas or whichever creation you chose :O). This dough will last for several days in the fridge and from what I read can even be frozen for several months.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
