Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

It's not delivery, it's Deanna

Alright, I'll be the first to admit that the picture doesn't make it look too appetizing, but I must say homemade pizza is mighty tasty!

My husband, Mr. Chicken, and I had gotten into a nasty habit of eating DiGiorno frozen pizzas far too often when we were in college. A habit that has continued through adulthood and has been especially abused with two small, time-consuming children in the house.

Needless to say, I've taken to making my own pizza dough and, hoo boy!, the result has no comparison whatsoever to frozen. I'd like to claim that the DiGiorno Harvest Wheat Rising Crust pizza is an improvement over the old "cardboard" pizza, but when you take into consideration the amount of sodium, non-local ingredients and, well, the fact it's a Kraft product, there's no going back. Even my kids won't eat the frozen stuff.

So, in the spirit of eating locally, I purchase all the ingredients from local producers and assemble in my own kitchen. If you're looking for really good baking recipes, I highly recommend Baking Illustrated.
