Pizza Crust I
This was my first attempt at making a home made pizza. I made it exactly as written. My bread machine took 1 hr & 40 min on the dough setting. I used a 16" perforated pizza pan which I sprayed with a little butter spray and sprinked with some cornmeal. Took some work to try and get the dough spread evenly on the pan. I didn't pre-bake it. Spread some store bought pizza sauce on it and 2 cups of shredded Mozzarella. Sprinkled with a little Italian Seasoning and some additional dried basil and oregano and then lots of pieces of sweet Italian sausage. Baked it for about 20 min at 400 degrees. It didn't look real pretty but BOY was it GOOD! Crust was perfect. Light brown and a little crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and totally done even in the middle. No more store bought for me!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches
I used 32 ounce box of low sodium beef broth, ground black pepper, dried onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, dried parsley, bay leaf and 2 (.7 ounce) Good Seasons dry Italian dressing mixes with a 2 1/2 pound chuck roast. Added additional beef broth or water if you want to just cover the roast. Cooked on low for about 8 hours. Shredded the meat, removing fat, discarded the bay leaf and put the beef back in the crock pot for an additional 1 to 1 1/2 hours along with sliced green bell peppers. Put on hogie rolls with provolone under the broiler for a minute or two to melt the cheese. Unbelievably good!!

Strawberry Cobbler I
This was FANTASTIC!! I read all the reviews and made the following changes based on those reviews. 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, juice of 1/2 lemon and water to equal 1/2 cup liquid & 4 cups of sliced strawberrys. I cooked the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice/water mixture until it was extremely thick and then mixed in the strawberrys. I had to add about 1 additional tablespoon of the heavy whipping cream to get all the dry combined. Baked it for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. When it cooled, served with ice cream. It was not runny at all and was delicious. Will definately make again.
