"Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty—and I am not talking about the process of cleaning the rooms of your teenage children." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Apple Dip

This is technically an apple dip but It could go on lots of things. It would make a great frosting! 

1 package cream cheese - softened 
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Let cream cheese sit at room temp for several minutes or warm in microwave for 30 seconds. Mix all ingredients with a hand held mixer until smooth. Chill and serve!

Chicken Alfredo Flatbread


This can be so super easy or you can make everything from scratch. To make it easy use pillsbury pizza dough, a rotisserie or leftover chicken and canned Alfredo sauce. I personally love homemade though. The recipe for that is below. 

Your favorite pizza dough 
Alfredo sauce
Green onions
Cooked chicken 
Mozzarella cheese
Salt to taste 

Preheat oven. Chop cooked chicken into small pieces and slice green onions. Roll out your favorite pizza dough. Spread a thin layer of Alfredo sauce and top with chicken pieces and green onions. Sprinkle salt on and top with a thin layer of mozzarella. Bake for 10-15 min or until crust is golden brown. 

Alfredo Sauce: 
1 cube butter
1 garlic clove
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese 
3/4 cup mozzarella 
Salt and pepper to taste 

Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium/low heat. Add garlic and cream bringing mixture to a simmer. Stir often. Add the Parmesan and simmer for 8-10 min or until it has thickened and is smooth. Add mozzarella and stir until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
