I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cast Iron Pan Dinner for Two

Pan pizza and cinnamon roll bread from one pizza dough ball! Dinner for two done in a snap!

You'll need one 450 g ball of pizza dough divided in half.

Pizza ingredients:
half the pizza dough
1 tbsp olive oil 
Pizza sauce and toppings of your choice 
8 or 9" cast iron pan

Coat the cast iron pan with olive oil then spread the dough in the bottom and up the sides a bit to form the crust.
Spoon on the sauce... 

and add your toppings

Don't forget lots of cheese!

Bake at 525 F for 15-18 minutes

And what you've got is a nice crisp bottom crust that's soft and chewy on the inside!

While the pizza is baking prepare dessert!

Cinnamon Roll Bread ingredients:
half the pizza dough
2 tbsps brown sugar
2 tbsps white sugar
2 tbsps soft butter
1 tsp cinnamon
chocolate or salted caramel chips, optional

1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tbsp milk
pinch of instant coffee granules

Form the pizza dough into about a 3 X 8" rectangle. 
Mix the sugars, butter and cinnamon together and spread on the dough leaving a 1/2" border around the edges. 
Roll up lengthwise, then cut through lengthwise down the middle. Twist one side over the other the length of the dough and curl together to form a ball.

Stud with your chosen chips and place on a parchment line baking sheet. Or if you have another cast iron pan, oil it and place your roll in that.

Once your pizza is out of the oven pop the cinnamon roll in and reduce the heat to 350 F. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Cool the bread about 10 minutes then mix the glaze ingredients together and drizzle over the top of your dessert!
