By bringing this forum over from Sharon's Blue Garden's site, I started us out with #3 to continue. This will be where we post recipes and chat. The recipes will later be copied over in their appropriate thread to hopefully keep them organized and easier to find.

The links to the previous threads are here:

Arlene: if you can put these with the recipe, that would be great. Don't add the one of Peggy's
Chocolate Pound Cake. I'll try to get another, better photo of that one.

My potato casserole is in the fridge and will go in the oven tomorrow morning while we help with
Meals on Wheels at church. The brussels sprouts salad is ready to go together once we get to
Sis's.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! Let the feasting begin.

Oh Angie - those look so yummy. My mouth is watering.

I posted Mimi's pound cake photo with your recipe. I'm not seeing your lime meringue pie recipe so if you will please post it, I will put in the dessert thread with this photo. I'll wait to hear from you on Peggy's chocolate pound cake.

You have got to be so very tired Group hug but I know all your hard work will be so appreciated when eaten.

Thank you for posting photo's!

When do you get some rest?

I hope you see this. Your Mimi's Lemon Pound Cake was a big hit. I don't do a lot of baking, so I was very excited when I found this recipe and even more so when it turned out so delicious! Thanks so much for sharing. It's one of my favorites now!

Black Iron Skillet Deep Dish Pizza
(From Pinterest - menumusings.blogspot.com)

Thumb of 2017-02-06/aspenhill/7624f6

Ingredients:
premade pizza dough (I found some nice ones in the section where the fresh pasta is and other groceries have it at the deli counter)
1 tablespoon canola oil
pepperoni
sweet green pepper (I used the long skinny light green ones)
tomato, some diced, some sliced
basil
oregano
garlic powder
Italian sausage marinara sauce (recipe below or add cooked and crumbled Italian sausage to your favorite jarred pizza sauce - I used Ledo's)
sliced fresh mozzarella cheese (I also tried it with shredded mozzarella, but the sliced fresh mozzarella was much better)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out the dough in a wide circle on a floured surface, then sprinkle the rested dough with more flour.

Add canola oil to a black iron skillet and transfer the dough, draping loosely. Gently press the dough all the way into the skillet.

Cover the bottom with pepperoni, then layer with green peppers, then diced tomatoes, then sliced mozzarella cheese, then seasonings, then Italian sausage marinara, then more mozzarella cheese, then sliced tomatoes and more seasonings.

Cook on the stove top for a few minutes on high/medium-high so that the oil in the bottom gets hot and starts cooking the bottom of the crust.

Then put into oven. Cook at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then kick up the temperature to 450 degrees for the next 10-12 minutes.

ITALIAN SAUSAGE MARINARA
Note - this makes much more than you need for the pizza so just save the rest for another occasion
Ingredients:
2 onions, diced fine
6 cloves garlic, minced fine
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
crushed red pepper flakes
3 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 pound mild Italian sausage

Directions:
To a heavy pot, add olive oil. Add the chopped onions and garlic to the oil and start cooking them down. Add in a generous pinch of kosher salt and red pepper flakes. Add in the sugar. Add in the tomatoes. Add in the dried seasonings. In a separate pot, crumble the sausage and as it browns, add it to the simmering marinara.
