Purple Kitchen Treats

Over the past few years, I have been working on a cookbook. During this time, I took time off to finish my Master's Degree. Now that I have accomplished that, I am working again on my cookbook, slowly but surely.

However, over the past few months, something interesting has happened...I have received multiple requests for baked goods, particularly my cookies. I am also receiving multiple requests for granola. So, with all these requests in mind, I have started to make my cookies for sale, along with my granola.

My official web site is available, but will be undergoing a significant redesign. Be sure to visit my "official" web site at: http://www.susanshonk.com and watch for some exciting changes.

A different kind of pizza

I am working on a recipe for a very easy southwestern style pizza.  Unfortunately, it will have a case of culinary confusion.....elements from the desert southwest, the mediterranean, Mexico and possibly one other culture added, just for good measure.

The base is a ready-made flatbread, like pita or naan.   Now, I'm not talking about the commercially prepared "pita pocket", but a more traditional flat-bread that is soft  and in 1 piece that will bake beautifully and crisp very nicely for a thin style pizza.

Sauces will be available in 2 colors, red and green, made from dried guajillo chiles and one from fresh green chiles, flavored simply with garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper and maybe just a touch of agave.

Toppings may include chicken, black beans, onions, cheese, fresh chiles, fish and one or two other options that I am playing with.  As the weekend progresses, be on the lookout for something wonderful and easy.

From the heart of my purple kitchen to you,

Have a great evening!!!
