Pita Flat Bread Chips

The other day I was cruising around Costco, trying out a few of their samples (Have you ever noticed things taste so much better when you are super hungry..Note to self: Don't go when you are hungry!!)  I tried a few pita chips.  They were simple and delicious.  So I immediately headed down the aisle in search of what was soon to be my gigantic box of pita chips.  As I put the box in my cart I turned and saw a package of pita bread on the shelf.   Looked at the price then back at the price of the box in my cart.. the bag of pita bread was less than half the cost of the box and it was a big bag of pitas!! So the thought crossed my mind (and I was on a budget) that I could probably create my own homemade version. I put the box back on the shelf and grabbed the bag.  The only issue, I bought flat bread instead of pitas so they were a thicker chip. They still ended up being a HUGE hit.  We ate them plain and with a couple different dips. The kids ate them straight from the oven.  They didn't even last 24 hours.  Next note: Buy 2 packages next time!


Pita Flat bread Chips
pita flat bread
olive oil
seasonings of your choice (I used salt, garlic salt and seasoning salt)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Pour some olive oil in a bowl, add they desired seasonings and mix well. (I started out with about 1/4 cup oil then made more as I needed it.) Brush the seasoned oil on each side of the bread.  Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter.  Place on a cookie sheet.  Bake for 5 minutes.  Take out and turn each slice over. Return to oven and bake 4-5 minutes more or until golden brown.  Removed from oven and let cool.


If you want thinner more crispy chips use pita bread.  Divide each pocket into two pieces. Brush with the seasoned oil and bake a shorter amount of time, watching closely so they do not burn.
*The seasoning possibilities are endless!!
Enjoy!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
