Homemade Boboli

Posted on February 26, 2008. Filed under: Bread, Pizza, Reviewed |

Boboli Type Pizza Crust

1 cup water
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp.
Italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle

Add all ingredients (except) second parmesan cheese to breadmaker in order listed by your manufacturer. It is a good idea to put the garlic down inside the flour so it does not slow the yeast. Set breadmaker on dough setting.

When complete, form two crusts on pizza pans, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, cover and let rise again.

Preheat oven to 450°F and bake 5 to 10 minutes until light brown. Cool.

Wrap tightly in foil and freeze until you get the pizza urge. Great to have around for easy last minute dinners.

REVIEW: This has become a staple in our house. These pizza crusts are great! You can use them right away or freeze for another day.

Orange Stir-Fry Chicken

Posted on February 7, 2008. Filed under: Asian, Chicken, Main Dish |


  • 4 boneless, skinless organic chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes


  • 2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup orange juice* (*If this flavor is too overpowering, mix orange juice and water to make the 1/3 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon chile paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 slice ginger, minced
  • Oil for stir-frying, as needed


Place the cubed chicken in a bowl, and add the marinade ingredients. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes.

While the chicken is marinating, prepare the sauce ingredients and the garlic and ginger.

Heat the wok (or big, deep skillet) and add oil.


When oil is ready, add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry until aromatic.

Add the chicken and stir-fry until it changes color. Push up to the sides of the wok (or skillet), making a well in the middle. Add the sauce.

Combine the sauce and the chicken. Stir-fry for another minute and serve hot. We eat this with brown & wild rice.
