Works of Love

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 0 Comments
"Works of love are always works of peace. Whenever you share love with others, you'll notice the peace that comes to you and to them. When there is peace, there is God– that is how God touches our lives and shows His love for us by pouring peace and joy into our hearts." Mother Teresa

I read this quote a few days ago and wrote it down in my journal. As I have read it and reread it over the past few days, I feel like all I am doing for those I love is worth it and God will bless me. I know I am helping others and that makes me feel great and think less about my own problems. I think that is why God has asked us to give ourselves to the service of others.

Real Happiness

Thursday, January 26, 2012 0 Comments
"Excitement is a great and necessary thing; without it life wouldn't be complete. Happiness– real happiness – is something entirely different, at once 
calmer & rewarding. 

True joy lacks the wild ups and downs of an excitement based life. 
It's a peaceful landscape, filled with peaceful thoughts and emotions. 

You are in the perfect place to begin: 
this very moment."

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 0 Comments

 Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F
/45 degrees C)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1. In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over the top, and let stand for about 10 minutes, until foamy.
2. Stir the olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture, then mix in the whole wheat flour and 1 cup of the all-purpose flour until dough starts to come together. Tip dough out onto a surface floured with the remaining all-purpose flour, and knead until all of the flour has been absorbed, and the ball of dough becomes smooth, about 10 minutes. Place dough in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover loosely with a towel, and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
3. When the dough is doubled, tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 2 pieces for 2 thin crust, or leave whole to make one thick crust. Form into a tight ball. Let rise for about 45 minutes, until doubled.
4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Roll a ball of dough with a rolling pin until it will not stretch any further. Then, drape it over both of your fists, and gently pull the edges outward, while rotating the crust. When the circle has reached the desired size, place on a well oiled pizza pan. Top pizza with your favorite toppings, such as sauce, cheese, meats, or vegetables.
5. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes (depending on thickness) in the preheated oven, until the crust is crisp and golden at the edges, and cheese is melted on the top.
