Spinach and Chicken Alfredo Pizza

This pizza was suprisingly good. It incorporates fresh veggies which is different for me. I really enjoyed the flavor and freshness.

Jar of Alfredo sauce
1 1/2 C frozen spinach
1 C grilled chopped chicken
1/2 C chopped Tomatos
1/2 C Mushrooms
1 C of Mozzerella
Mix the alfredo sauce with your thawed spinach. Spread over your prepared crust. Next sprinkle the chopped tomatos, mushrooms, Chopped Chicken and cheese over your pizza and bake as crust instructs.

Breakfast Calzone

I got this idea last saturday morning and it turned out so amazing!!! Michael and I had a lazy morning and wanted a good sized breakfast. This was good and is a different spin on breakfast.
1 batch of your favorite biscuit recipe
Pick whatever you want for filling:
Roll out your dough and seperate into the amount of calzones you want. Once all of your fillings are cooked, place them on one half of the dough and fold the other half over. Press to seal. Bake using the biscuits cooking directions.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

For those who don't know, I work at a unique job where every once in a while I cook dinner for about 20+ people. The other night, they planned chicken burritos. Yet, as I looked at their ingredients there was no one single thing on their list to season the chicken. I dont know about you but when I have a burrito, I love for the meat to be flavorful and delicious. Well I went to my fellow food bloggers and found this recipe for Taco Seasoning. It was great! It used all the seasonings you probably have at home. Plus I enjoyed being able to alter the spiciness with the cayenne. Im also a HUGE fan of cumin so I like being able to add more to it than what the normal envelopes give you.
