I love a good homemade pizza.  My husband makes the BEST crust.  He won't tell me his secret but he worked at a few different pizza shops growing up so he knows his stuff!

I found this delicious looking specimen-

I have a BBQ recipes that utilzes apple sauce haha

BBQ Crockpot Style

1 TBS ground black pepper
1 onion (small) finely chopped
½ tsp garlic powder
1 bottle BBQ sauce
4-5 lb. pork roast.  Cut into large pieces
4 cups water
3 ½ cups apple sauce
1 ½ tsp salt


In crockpot, combine pork, water, 2 cups of apple sauce, and seasonings.  Stir well.  Place on lid and set temp to high.  Let cook for 8 hours until meat is fully cooked.  Pull pieces of meat from liquid or strain if needed.  Empty liquid from crockpot.

As you replace the meat into crockpot, be sure to either shred it break it into small pieces.  Pour in bottle fo BBQ sauce and rest of apple juice.  Stir well and replace lid.  Continue to cook on high for an hour stirring occasionally.

I make baked chicken strips with panko, I haven't found the perfect recipe yet, but they are decent and much healthier than those pre-fried frozen or resturant ones.

I make substitutions for healthier ingredients whenever I can.  Instead of fried chicken, we make oven fried chicken, rolled in oatmeal instead of cracker crumbs.
