Chocolate Chia Pudding


Have you noticed that there is a lot of talk out there about Chia?


What exactly is Chia?

Chia is a seed from a plant that grows in Mexico and neighboring countries. Chia is actually a part of the mint family.
Some folks call chia a 'Superfood".

Chia is loaded in certain beneficial vitamin B's. Chia is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Because of what chia has in it, people believe that chia can help with issues with blood pressure, joint pain, and so much more. That is why some call chia a "superfood".


I like to classify foods that are regarded as "superfoods" as foods that I will use in healthier recipes.

Yes, chocolate and pudding are favorite desserts for many of us. And yes, there is a way to work some chia into that chocolate pudding to make recipes even better.

5 Ingredient Skillet Pizza

Not all pizzas have to be made on pizza pan or a stone.
Some really tasty pizzas can actually be made right on a stove.

5 Ingredient Skillet Pizza

I am a fan of my cast iron skillet.
Everything that I make in my skillet turns out amazing. What I love is that my cast iron skillet cooks my food evenly throughout. I also love that I can take my cast iron skillet from stove top to oven with little problem. Probably the best feature about my cast iron skillet is that it is relatively inexpensive and reliable for that price.




Using a cast iron skillet can really up my game when it comes to preparing food. One of my favorite meals to create in my skillet is pizza


I use my cast iron skillet to make a lot of great food.
Desserts come out of the oven tasting so good when I use my cast iron skillet.
Pizza comes out especially good in my cast iron skillet.


I can not remember the last time that I actually paid for someone else to make me a pizza.
That is because making my own pizza is not so hard to do. My friends and family think that my pizza tastes at least as good as the expensive stuff.


When I make pizza at home, I like to experiment with different ways of making that pizza.
Skillet pizza is one way to make a great pizza.

The good thing about making this 5 ingredient skillet pizza is that it does not have to be hard to do.
You can easily go to the store and pick up a pre-made pizza dough. I always make extra pizza dough just to set some aside to use later. Then, when we want a quick pizza we already have the dough ready to go.


This pizza has five ingredients.
There is the dough, the sauce and the cheese that you would find on any pizza. Oil is used to keep the dough from sticking to the pan. Lastly, the fifth ingredient would be the topping(s) that you choose to put on the pizza. "Topping" is a general catch-all for whatever ingredient(s) you use to personalize your creation. We all have personal tastes when it comes to toppings so, you are welcome to use what you like as far as toppings go. You can even omit the toppings and still have a great pizza.






5 Ingredient Skillet Pizza

What kind of toppings to you like on your pizza?

Lately, I have been fond of the vegetable toppings such as diced tomatoes and garlic.I do like to experiment with other vegetables such as spinach or peppers.

By

An easy idea for a meal that most everyone can agree on.

Ingredients

- 1.Premade pizza dough- 1 pound, can use store-bought or homemade.

- 2. Olive or other oil- 2 teaspoons

- 3.Pizza sauce- 8-9 ounce can

- 4. Shredded cheese- 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella, Jack- Colby blend or your choice.

- 5. Toppings as desired.







HOW TO MAKE THIS:

- 1. Roll out your pizza dough that has been prepared as indicated on the package. Tip: I roll mine out on parchment paper to make the transfer a snap! Sprinkle flour while rolling out the dough as needed to prevent any sticking.

- 2. Preheat your skillet on medium head. You skillet should be one that can fit a lid and able to use in an oven if needed (lid will not go into oven).

- 3. When skillet with oil is warm, transfer your rolled out dough to the skillet. This is where the parchment paper can make your life easier/

- 4. When bubbles begin to form in the dough you can settle them down or allow them to stay. After about five minutes, the dough underside will show signs of hardening. At this point, flip the pizza over.

- 5. Add your sauce and toppings, cover and allow to cook until the cheese begins to brown- about 8-10 minutes.

- 6. To crispen the pizza, stick the skillet into a warm oven for a few minutes.

Chocolate Rum Molten Lave Cake

If you are craving something warm and chocolate with a bit of pizzazz to it, a molten lave cake can be just the cure that you are looking for.

Chocolate Rum Molten Lava Cake


That certain warm and chocolate dessert with a bit of pizzazz to it!


Chocolate Rum Molten Lave Cake

If you were to ask five people what a molten lava cake actually is, you may get more than five answers.






Generally speaking, a Molten chocolate cake combines a cake with a "Molten" or stream of sorts, of chocolate.


Since a Chocolate Rum Molten Lava Cake does have the word "lave" combined with the word "chocolate" in the same sentence, we can only assume that there would be an explosion of chocolate in the cake itself.

Molten cake is usually made with chocolate.
We love the way that there is a stream, or 'lava' of melted chocolate that comes out of the molten cake. It is almost sinful for those of us who love chocolate when we think about a chocolate cake that basically oozes out chocolate when you stick your fork into it for a bite.

I have never heard of a molten or lava cake made with anything other than brown chocolate although, a white chocolate lava would be something worth checking out.

What do you serve your Chocolate Molten Cake with?

The standard serving as far as I can tell, would be to serve your warm molten cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Not a bad thought really. Some folks just seem to like to dust a bit of powdered sugar on top of their molten cake. I, myself, am fond of whipped cream.

This molten cake is made with ramekins.
I like that the ramekin can make individual servings of the cake. This makes for easy entertaining in my opinion.
You can easily find inexpensive ramekins on Amazon.

I have added rum to this recipe.
The idea of a rum molten chocolate lava cake (say that 10 times...) sounds interesting and fun to me. You don not have to use rum in your cake. Vanilla extract would be a suitable alternative to the rum.

How to make Cheesecake in a Jar

This cheesecake in a jar recipe is perfect for this time of the year.
I love that it can be made in advance.

How to make Cheesecake in a Jar


How to make Cheesecake in a Jar

Cheesecake in a jar is such a cute idea for a fun dessert.



I love that you can make cheesecake in a jar in advance and have it ready to serve, in portions, when ready,

Making Cheesecake in a Jar is easier to make than you may expect it to be.

This is a no-bake recipe that also has no eggs in it. Even better, you can sneak in some fruit!



This recipe can be made in healthier version.
You will notice that substitutions will be suggested.
I personally like to sub in food items when I bake to save a bit on the calories etc.
However, this can also mean that taste may suffer as a result.

We will be making a quickie kind of a crust for this cheesecake in a jar recipe.
The crust is such an easy cheat. All you really need is some melted butter and some cookies. You can even use graham crackers. I would even try using butter alternatives. You can even skip the crust if you want to.

What you will definitely need are jars or small glasses to make this in.
Jars are cute and they make for a nice presentation. You can even use them as a party favor for people to take home and enjoy. A basic mason jar would work for this. You can find a decent selection of mason jars on Amazon-4 ounce and other sizes -even with wide-mouths.
