    What do you put on your chicken salsa pizza?? It sounds great and I recently started experimenting with homemade pizza.

    Those potatoes look like they will be delicious! I pretty much do the same thing, but with sweet potatoes. I HIGHLY recommend it. Sweet potatoes are SO good for you and they taste amazing prepared this way!

    Crystal did you ever post the Green Rice casserole recipe? Maybe I missed it but so far I’ve tried 5 of your recipes and we all love them so if you wouldn’t mind sharing I would like to give it a shot. Thanks. :)

    Try rolling the taco pizza dough out in about 1/2 cup Masa Flour. It gives it a little added yumminess!

      …and we use a layer of refried beans and taco sauce for the “sauce” – it adds healthy fiber and protein, and all kinds of other good stuff, and it tastes great too!

    Your weekly menu is always my favorite post. I often find myself feeling guilty because we eat cereal for breakfast or leftovers for lunch/dinner. It makes me feel better to see your weekly menu and know that other people eat the same way!! I am not a terrible mom because I don’t slave in the kitchen 3x a day for every meal! Thanks so much!!!

    I see in the pic 2 large portions. Do these freeze well? Do you freeze after cooking or before?

    • says

      I’ve not tried freezing them, but they made enough for two dinners and one lunch. I’m going to put shredded cheese on them and bake them for dinner tonight. I think my family will like that even more than serving them plain. :)

    I enjoy trying new recipes (sometimes my family enjoys it!) and we tried the orange smoothies this morning. Very good. Thanks for posting it.

  8. Carrie says

    Thanks for the recipes! I have always loved your recipes. Tried the Orange Cream Smoothies just now and we loved them! Worked great with frozen oranges in a plain old Black & Decker blender.
