11: I remember when mom first told me about this breakfast and you can guess what went through my head...that sounds kind of gross. But I tried it out when she made it for me one day at the condo and I was hooked. It goes really well with some home made refried beans. It is now my all time favorite breakfast. Now every time I eat it I think about how much we both loved this dish and how much fun we had eating it together. It was one of her favorites too.

Dump dough ball onto a well floured surface and knead for about 5 min sprinkling flour as needed to keep ball from sticking. Next, lightly oil the inside of a large bowel.

15: Build it and Bake it Pizza stone or large cookie sheet Pizza peel 1 Container of Fresh Mozzarella 2-3 Packs of provolone Basil pesto Toppings: What ever your heart desires Preheat oven to 500 with pizza stone already in center of oven. Place a pizza peel in center of assembly area covering it with a small layer of flour and cornmeal so the dough doesn't stick. You want it to be able to slide off when you are done. From your big dough ball, break off a smaller dough ball(little bigger then your fist) and push it out with your fingers to the desired shape(circle). Apply a thin layer of basil pesto with a basting brush to the formed dough. Put desired amount of sauce and spread evenly over the dough leaving about half and inch of crust around the edges. Place whole pieces of provolone around the entire pizza. Filling in the holes with pieces of mozzarella. Apply toppings. NOTE: Be careful when placing toppings, the more you put on the longer it will have to cook and you could burn your crust. It might not cook in the middle. Once oven preheated, slide pizza off pizza peel onto the stone and cook for 15min or until crust appears light brown on the outside. Before you are ready to serve you can check the center of the pizza by lifting it up with a spatula. Make sure it isn't doughy. You want a nice crunchy bottom.

16: Oh So Good Fajitas | Ingredients: 4 chicken breasts 1-1.5 lbs flank steak or tender skirt steak 2-4 bottles of Claudes Brisket or Fajitas Marinade Corn & or flour tortillas 1 chopped raw onion 5-7 limes cut into wedges Fresh chopped cilantro | Directions: Clean the meat, place into gallon bags with marinade, and fresh lime juice from one lime squeezed. Then place in fridge for 2-4 hours. The marinade is salty so I don't recommend salting the meat prior to placing it in the marinade. Get the grill ready, once coals nice a hot (look mostly white) throw the meat on. I usually cook mine for about 15 min depending on how hot the grill is. The steak should have a nice red color in the middle when they are done. Place all the chopped onion, cilantro and lime wedges into separate bowels, these will be the fixens for the fajitas. Once done, put it all together in the tortilla of your choice and squeeze some fresh lime juice on top and enjoy.
