It’s official, I’ve finally joined the Daring Bakers! And of all things, my first Daring Baker challenge was…pizza!
Pizza? That’s supposed to be a challenge?? Those were my first thoughts when I started reading about this month’s daring baker challenge. And then I got to the part about how we would have to toss the dough in the air. Ah yes, I thought. Therein lies the challenge!
You see, I make pizza all the time, but I refuse to toss the dough. In fact, I pride myself on not tossing the dough.

A sandwich is a sandwich, but a Manwich is a meal!
As I have already mentioned, today I share a birthday with my cousin Jason. A week ago he e-mailed me and requested that I create ‘The Ultimate Manwich’ for his birthday and post it on Pinch My Salt. No other instructions or descriptions were given. He just asked for The Ultimate Manwich. Continue reading →
