pizza & salt-dough ornaments

happy holidays you sweet angels!

before i get going, i really want to share a few links that i’m speechless about.

obama caught in a tiny spiderman’s web

this makes me feel so happy and proud. if e-40 can rock it, so can you.

an article that will make your week

my advent calendar’s been really hit or miss. mostly miss on the days that it takes me 2 hours to drive home and the event is: drive around and look at christmas lights. or the days that i totally mcguiver myself and can’t find the tools i bought for ‘make a snow globe’ day. brilliant.

dog print ornament

when we arrived at ‘make an ornament’ day, darren may as well have internally combusted with excitement. he couldn’t wait to make a print of toshi’s paw. in true puppy fashion, toshi couldn’t have been less interested and instead attempted at eating the ornament dough.


it was actually really fun. and couldn’t have been easier.

here’s what you need:

1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup warm water

1 cup flour

1. preheat oven to 200°f.

2. knead all ingredients for about 7 minutes or until it forms a ball of dough. i used an electric mixer.

3. roll out and cut into shapes. don’t forget to add little holes at the top to hang them from.

4. place on a cookie sheet in the oven for 4 hours. i flipped the ornaments over halfway through. you just want to make sure all of the moisture is gone so that they stay in tact.

string cheese pizza

thought i’d share my dinner with you too. leftover pizza dough from when i made my calzones + skim string cheese + shallots + chopped jalapeno + organic grapes i had frozen and cut in half = better than tj’s frozen pizza.

side-note: if you’ve never ordered pizza delivery with pineapple, red onion, and jalapeno you are severely missing out. it is the absolute best. AND if you are in sf and ordering any pizza, do it from victor’s. it’s one of the best in the city but you have to order an hour before last call on the weekends otherwise you won’t get through. oh, and don’t forget to order a cup of ranch – it comes in a coffee cup.

which reminds me to tell you about my ranch [seen above]

1 dry packet to make ranch dipping sauce

14 ounces non-fat greek yogurt

1/4 cup vegan mayo

1. whisk together and enjoii
