When a recipe mentions homemade pizza sauce, I typically tune that out and immediately substitute a great store bought variety because why make homemade with a 10 Minute Dinners philosophy?

There’s nothing better than whipping up a multipurpose easy homemade pizza (or pasta) sauce, and since we’re doubling and tripling the recipe, there is always some for extra meals.
I’m listing two varying recipes.
The first is over the top easy since there’s no need for any kind of heating. It is a a dump and run kind of recipe.
For both of these, make sure to make lots of extras and separate them into freezer proof containers or freezer bags for future meals.
It’s a wonderful way to save money and cut the high amount of sugar that is added to many store bought brands.
Once you realize just how easy it is to make your own sauce, I know this will become a weekly favorite.

Keep the pantry stocked and you’ll be ready all winter long. [Read More...]

As I began writing up my next C.O.S.T Cooking post for this series, I realized this really gives you a glimpse into simplifying our meal time so that we can enjoy our minutes connecting, [...]
Pizza is a staple in our home. There’s no way around it. It’s served at least once or twice a week, both store bought and home made. I love making my own homemade pizza crust and with my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (I admit, I own two because this one was such a great price), [...]
“Mom, this is amazing. I feel like I’m in a restaurant. Please make this every single week, and next time, make a lot more,” requested our high school son. The rest of the kids continued devouring these Barbeque Chicken Thighs and nodded their head in agreement. Sometimes I marvel at how such an easy recipe [...]
