Jennifer Broussard’s Honey Glazed Chicken from Treasures and Pleasures cookbook looks to be quite simple, ideal for the busy homemaker. Stick the dish in the oven and go about your other chores. Or… put your feet up and relax!

Mrs. Morris’ Crockpot Roast With Noodles takes six hours in the slow cooker and is terrific for the busy person who wants to have a lovely meal at the end of the day. You only need to add the noodles at the end of cooking, and that might take 15 minutes.

Cheese Strata is made with white bread, eggs, and cheese, You can make it with browned sausage and mushrooms if you want (which I would). Then bake it in the oven for close to an hour.

BONNIE MILLIKEN’S PIZZA DOUGH

Recipe from Northside Baptist Church’s cookbook

1 cup warm water

1 package yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons oil

2 cups flour, and additional 1-1/2 cups flour, approximately

Sprinkle yeast into warm (not hot) water until dissolved. Add sugar, salt, and oil.

Add 2 cups flour, a little (1/2 cup) at a time. It will be a very stiff dough. Turn out onto floured flat surface and knead in the remaining 1-1/2 cups flour until dough is smooth and elastic.

Place dough in greased bowl. Brush or pat top with oil. Cover and let rise in warm place (85 degrees). In the rising process, keep in a place that is free from drafts until dough is double in bulk. It will take about 45 minutes (30 minutes or less if you use the Rapid Rise Yeast). Punch down the dough and divide in half. Knead slightly and press each ball of dough into pizza pan.

Top with ‘whatever,’ i.e.; 1 cup tomato or pizza sauce, 1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, cooked Italian sausage, cooked hamburger, slivers of onion, green pepper, olives, pepperoni, etc.

Bake at 400 degrees about 20 to 25 minutes in preheated oven.

Dough can be refrigerated or frozen before rising. Defrost or let dough come to room temperature before first step in rising. It can be refrigerated or frozen after adding the toppings or after slightly baking (10 to 15 minutes).
