2 cups tomato sauce

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

1/4 tsp garlic salt

About 8 oz grated mozzarella cheese

Preferred toppings

Diced ham




To Make

Combine all but english muffins, cheese and toppings.  Spread on english muffins (about 1 1/2 spoonfuls each) and top with cheese and favorite toppings.

Broil till cheese is bubbly and browned.



Absolute Best Fried Rice


This is our favorite recipe for fried rice and it comes from the More-with-Less cookbook.  We so enjoy this, it is great as a meal or leftovers!


Olive oil

3 cups cooked rice (about 1 cup uncooked, cook ahead of time in rice cooker)

1/4 – 1/2 pound cooked meat (last time we used leftover chicken from Chipotle Chicken Sandwich Recipe which was already seasoned with paprika and chili powder.  We cut it into tiny pieces and it added the perfect touch!)

3 cloves minced garlic

1 large onion chopped

1 tsp salt

1 tsp or more of pepper

1 tsp sugar

1 Tsp soy sauce

1 cup or so of frozen veggies (we love peas in this!)

3 eggs, beaten

To Make

Add all but rice, veggies and eggs to fry pan and cook about 2 minutes. Add cooked rice and stir fry about 5 minutes. Add veggies and just before serving add eggs.  Over medium heat stir eggs carefully into mixture until cooked.  Enjoy the absolute best fried rice!
