About Me

I have 5 girls, and one day the youngest says to me "you should create your own cook book", I haven't a clue as to how to even begin doing that, so we put our heads together and decided to create a blog instead. Cooking is one thing that I understand and love to do. Welcome, I hope you like what you see.

Pita Bread

We love pita bread at our house. This stuff just never lasts especially when we make hummus to go with it.

Pita Bread

2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1 ¼ C warm water
3 ½ C flour
½ tsp. salt
2 Tbsp Oil (divided)


Combine the first three ingredients and allow mixture to stand for about 10 minutes, just to make sure the yeast is activated. Add 1 Tbsp oil, then the flour and salt and knead by hand until fairly smooth. Put rest of the oil in a small bowl and coat the dough, allow to rise for about 20 – 30 minutes. Punch the dough down and pinch small pieces off of the dough, roll dough out with a rolling pin, this can either be friend in a pan on the stove with just a Tbsp of olive oil or they can be baked at 350 until it just starts to turn golden. Brush with olive oil and serve while warm.
