If you are looking for the the first three editions, I had it on one of my other blogs. I decided to move Show Your Stuff blog hop here. I don't have really many rules, just link up anything you are proud of and want to show off. Chirstmas Eve my loving husband slow cooked a pork roast for dinner, he put it in before going to church. We were welcomed home to an awesome smelling and tasting pork roast.

I have to admit, when my husband mention He was making Pizza Burgers, school cafeteria pizza burger come to mind..real nasty. But the one he made turned out really good. It's a Swiss and mushroom burger wrapped around some pizza dough. When we made these, we made 7 burgers, but the link I am giving for the pizza dough might not cover more than 6 burgers. So you will need:
Pizza Dough. The link to a pizza dough recipe can be found here
4 large burgers
|Roll out the dough to about 8-9 inches around|
|add slice of Swiss cheese|
|add some mushrooms|
|add some diced onions|
|Add the Burger, use your own recipe or ours here.|
|Fold dough around patty|
|Place seam down on cookie sheet, bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes|

This cake was featured here.I have seen someone blog about their experiences with a chocolate chip cookie cake back during the summer. So like many recipes I find and want to make later, I book marked the link. My son recently had a birthday and said he wanted this cake made. I like this cake, but be warned that the ingredients are a little bit pricey and everyone thought it was good, but rich. The recipe for this cake can be found here.

We made up some really tasty waffles adding cinnamon and vanilla to a favorite pancake recipe. This would work well as either pancakes or waffles. So here is the recipe:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 T baking powder
1 t salt
6 T melted butter
2 cups milk
Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients. mix well. Make waffles in waffle iron according to manufactures directions.
*Now what I do for waffles is that I separate the eggs, whip up the egg whites and fold into the waffles batter.

I am usually not into "spice" cookies, but I really like how these turned out. This recipe comes out of Betty Crocker's Cookie Book. This recipe does have cider vinegar in it. The cook book mentions that vinegar was used in cooking a lot over hundred years ago, even in the baked goods.
So here is the recipe:
2/3 cup butter - I used half shortening and butter
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup molasses
3 cups flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
3/4 t cinnamon
3/4 t ginger
1/4 cup cider vinegar - I used apple cider vinegar, it is was I had on hand
Heat oven 374 degrees
Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and molasses. Blend dry ingredients. Alternately add dry ingredients and vinegar. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until no imprints remain when lightly touched.
