1  Super Easy Calzone in Recipes and Cooking Tips by kittykill on: Today at 08:46:48 AM
My husband and I were in a rut about what to cook for dinner so I did a little shout out to friends for ideas. One suggested calzone.  I was a little stressed about making them but they are SO easy. The best part is that each person can make their own so no worries about not liking the meal. This is a simple recipe for the crust and a basic "stuffing".

Calzone Crust (this is a basic pizza crust, so if you don't want calzone, make a pizza)

1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 envelope pizza crust dough
1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup hot water
3 tablespoons oil

Start with 1 cup of flour and add the other dry ingredients. Mix and then add the oil and water. The dough will be very sticky. Add more flour until the dough no longer sticks to your fingers. Usually 2 cups is enough. You do not need to wait for the dough to rise when you use the pizza crust dough. Just mix and you are ready.

Ingredients for the stuffing
1 cup pizza sauce (approximately)
mozzarella cheese
Italian seasonings
veggies or meats you want

Cut the dough into 4 equal parts and roll out the dough to a flat roundish shape.
On one side of the dough, spread the pizza sauce, the cheese and any toppings you want. Add more cheese on top and sprinkle the seasonings.
Fold the side without all the stuffings over to make a pocket.
Crimp the dough ( I did a little fold over with the crimping-like a pie crust)
Spread a little olive oil with garlic powder or Italian seasonings to the top of the calzone.

Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes (until top and bottom are golden brown)


When I first made this, I made two huge calzones. It was way too much food for just my husband and I. The next time I made them, I broke it down to 4 and froze the other 2 so I could make them for lunch or a quick dinner.

I can not believe how easy this was and I'm excited about trying different ingredients like summer veggies. I think I might even make some dessert ones when strawberries and raspberries come into season.

Here is my entry to this month's theme. These are little lanterns from Sublime Stitching. I cut them out and mounted them on oval pieces of cardboard.

3  Frida Kahlo Pillow in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by kittykill on: March 07, 2018 08:05:12 AM
When  I first saw this pattern, I knew I had to stitch it up. I decided to make a pillow for the living room so each day I can see her and get inspired. Now I want to do an entire series of strong inspiring women.

7  Bath Bombs and Salts in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by kittykill on: February 23, 2018 01:20:55 PM

So....I tried making bath bombs and had a little bit of a fail. I had to try again because I LOVE baths. I am so glad I did. I made two different types of bombs and then some scented bath salts. This was more of a trial run. Next time I plan on making the colors of the bombs much brighter.

The light green ones have a green chakra scent:(Lemon, lavendar, geranium, bergamot, palmarosa, sweet marjoram)

The red ones are red chakra scent( Bergamot, vetiver, patchouli, nutmeg)

The bright blue salts are scented with Santa Baby (balsam fir, sugar cookies and spices)

The recipe I used for the green hearts:
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
1/2 Cup Corn Starch
lots of drops of bath specific coloring
2 1/2 T. Melted Coconut Oil
2 tsp Essential Oils of your choice
3/4 tsp. water
Witch Hazel to spritz
Mix all the dry ingredients together  Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Epsom Salt & Corn Starch!
Melt your coconut oil, add the essential oil and water
Slowly mix your wet ingredients with the dry. Mix it with your hands.
Add coloring and mix
Grab a handful, begin to mold.  I spritz it a little with Witch Hazel to make it easier to mold.
Let them dry for 1-3 days

If you are using a metal bath bomb mold, remember-do not leave it in there to dry. Just mold and remove (I learned this the hard way)

The red bath bombs I made were made the exact same way but instead of corn starch I used 2 cups of baking soda and no water.

The bath salts were made with soap/bath specific coloring (won't dye the bathtub), scent and Epsom salts. You can add more like corn starch, baking soda or powdered milk to soften the skin.
