This morning I thought I would make Tollhouse Pan Cookies between two rounds with the snow plows. When I pulled them out of the oven, something just did not look right. All I can think of is that I only added 1 1/4 cups of flour instead of the 2 1/4 cups called for in the recipe. Needless to say, that greasy mess went right in the garbage.
Then, I thought I would make tuna salad for lunch using a recipe I found for Balsamic Mayonnaise. Now, if anyone has ever made mayonnaise from scratch, you very slowly add in the oil. Too much, too soon can break the thick mayonnaise and turn it into a soupy mess. I had it nice and thick and creamy. Then, one more small addition and there it was, the mayonnaise just broke and I had a soupy mess on my hands.
I told myself to write this day off and move on. Afterall, cooking is a learning game.
After two kitchen failures this morning, I really had a craving for homemade pizza. Pizza is the one food that I could eat any day, any time. And relatively easy to make.
½ medium red onion; sliced thinly
1. Thaw bread dough in a greased covered bowl in a warm spot until doubled in size (about 8 hours).
7. Sprinkle with kosher salt and drizzle with additional olive oil.
