Homemade Pizza Puffs with a Pocket Maker

Illinois... Home of the Italian Beef Sammich, the best pizza ever, weird hot dogs, and the pizza puff. Seriously - the majority of my time spent in Illinois was in small little Greek gyro shops ordering these greasy, unhealthy, absolutely amazing snacks that I can never get enough of.  When I was pregnant, this is what I craved.  But of course, living in North Carolina, they cant be found anywhere.

source: city-data.com

So what do I do?  Play around in the kitchen until I mastered the filling.  Like, not to brag or anything, but I found a combination that tastes almost exactly like the real deal.  So - I'm gonna share it with you guys.

First, keep in mind that this is not a healthy recipe.  Delicious, but not healthy in the least.  You can definitely make changes to the recipe to get a less-fattening result - such as baking instead of frying, omitting the sausage grease (more on that in a second) and finding healthier ingredients.  With that said though, this is pretty close to the scrumptious artery-clogging delectables that I love so much.

Before I get into the actual recipe though - I have to tell you guys about this awesome invention that just makes pocket-type foods so much easier to make. Kuhn Rikon sent me their Pocket Maker Set to review, and this has to be one of the coolest things ever.  They come in three shapes: a circle, a heart, and a flower.  You just press it onto your dough once you put the filling in, and voila! You have a perfectly shaped and sealed pocket-food. It comes with an awesome recipe guide for everything from pot pies to dessert pies, and all kinds of other yummy-sounding stuff!



Now with the pizza puffs, the originals are made wrapped in a tortilla and deep-fried.  The tortilla envelope kept falling apart on me so to change it up some, I rolled the dough out and used Kuhn Rikon's circle pocket maker.  First I pressed the cutter into the dough to see where the filling should go, then i topped it with another circle, pressed down on the button, and then they were perfectly sealed and ready to go into the deep-fryer!



Tortilla Recipe
 2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lard
3/4 cup warm water

1. combine the dry ingredients
2. cut in the lard
3. add water all at once and mix with your hands, kneading as you go
this should make an elastic-y dough that holds together well as a ball.
4. roll out onto a floured surface
5. use the Pocket Maker to cut out your circles.  This recipe made about 16 circles for me - enough for 8 pizza puffs.

Filling
8 ounces cooked and crumbled mild sausage (1/2 package of sausage)
6 ounces tomato paste
2 tablespoons fennel seed
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese

1. After you have cooked the sausage, save about a tablespoon of the fat from the pan and put the sausage into a food processor.
2. Add in the other ingredients and pulse until mixture resembles a paste.  If too crumbly, add in the tablespoon of sausage grease to better hold it together

Assembly
Now here's the fun part.  Add about a tablespoon of filling to half of the circles that you cut out and use an egg wash to make the top circle stick.  Grab the Pocket Maker again and place on top of your circles, pressing the button on top.  Lift and check out the cool little seal it put on!

I put these in the deep fryer (350°) for about 5 minutes, flipping once, or until they were golden brown. Enjoy!

Zutano Baby and Toddler Clothes Review



I've mentioned before that I am a sucker for cute little kids' clothes.  I mean, there's just something so stinkin' adorable about a dressed up baby girl or a handsome little man wearing a matching outfit. Honestly, my kids are better dressed than I am about 95% of the time.  So of course, I was extremely happy to work with Zutano for a review of a couple of their Spring outfits!

If you haven't heard of Zutano before, they are a Vermont-based kids' clothing company that believes that little people clothes should be simple.  We're talking easy to put on, easy to wear, and easy to wash. They offer a ton of adorable prints patterns that range from stimulating to soothing, that can all be mixed and matched to create endless outfits. Zutano's unique styles just scream playful and are so soft and comfortable!


Kaya was sent the sweetest little dress in the Juba pattern, with a matching sun hat and baby pants. It fits like a tee shirt, loose and comfortable, and gave her that free-range of motion that all toddlers seem to need.  I love the soft cotton fabric because it breathes well and lets her play without hindering motion.



1. Juba Darling Mini Dress ($26) - a sleeveless short dress with an a-line cut and waistline flare. Part shirt, part dress, this piece features our Juba print with a solid pool placket at the front collar that has buttons in a henley style. Little girls who love to play will adore this comfy style. 100% Interlock cotton.

2. Mandarin Terry Baby Bodice Jacket ($36) - This tailored jacket features two large buttons and a pleated bottom combining a dressed up look with ample room for accommodating all of baby's play. The slight flare is perfect for little girls. Pair this 100% cotton jacket with Florilee or What a Zoo prints to create an adorable outfit. Imported.

3. Pool Candy Striped Baby Pants ($19.50) - Our pants are made with ease and comfort in mind. Zutano pants slip on effortlessly over long sleeve and short sleeve onesies and pair perfectly with tees. 100% Interlock cotton. Imported.



The outfit Sammy received is all boy.  From the cute elephant print on the tee shirt to the loose shorts, he was in love with it as soon as he saw it.  The bright colors and animals had him dancing and showing off - I think we have a new favorite outfit.  When I asked him what he liked about it, he said, "Mama, there's pockets in the front and pockets in the back, and I can carry my cars with me!"  So, I think we have the ultimate winner here.  The shorts are my favorite too; they're thick and soft, but breathable so I know that they'll be durable and last through his rough boy antics!
1. Splish Splash Toddler Short Sleeve Screen Tee ($22) - This fun lime tee has a playful Juba design of two stacked elephants with a bird on top, enjoying the watering hole. A fun staple for your little boy's summer wardrobe! 100% Interlock cotton. Imported.

2. Juba Toddler Reversible Zip Hoodie ($48.50) - The perfect wardrobe addition for a toddler who loves animals, featuring our sweet Juba print on one side and solid mandarin on the reverse. Add this basic style to your child's wardrobe for everyday wear. This versatile piece can be paired with numerous outfits. 100% Interlock cotton. Imported.

3. Pool Toddler French Terry Big Pocket Shorts ($35) - Big on style and comfort, big pocket shorts are made from Zutano's soft 100% cotton French Terry fabric with a faux button closure and an easy elastic waistband. Two functional front cargo pockets are embellished on the right side with a tiny contrast mini pocket, adding a whimsical surprise. Back patch pockets have another fun detail - a cute little grommet. A super choice for little explorers who like to stow things away! Featured here in our bright pool blue. Imported.

Starting New Family Traditions for Easter

This is a sponsored post, written by me on behalf of HoneyBaked Ham. 

Easter is one of those holidays that just bring out that kid magic.  We're not a very religious family, but the fun of Easter baskets and special treats - those are the memories that your kids will hold onto forever. With Easter, we forgo the parental family dinners that we usually deal with at the holidays, and make our own traditions special with our little family.  It's early this year (April 5th!) so start planning now and have an amazing day with your family!


The best part of having your own family is that you get to create new memories and new traditions that you know your kids will hold on to and then pass along to their children.  Like the picture above.  Every year, when the kids get all dressed up in their Easter best, I love sitting them in that rocking chair for a picture.


But aside from taking adorable pictures to see how much they've grown from year to year, I've also learned a thing or two about what traditions work best, and what makes a holiday easier.  Here are a few tips to making new Easter special and making new traditions!

Make it About the Kids

Remember when you were little and when Easter rolled around you were expected to sit quietly and look pretty while the grown-ups over planned everything?  Forget that.  Plan fun little activities to keep your little guys entertained, and everyone will be happier.  Looking for ideas?  Dying Easter eggs, making keepsake bunnies, and having an egg hunt are all fun ways for the kids to enjoy Easter!

Check out Pinterest

Decorate and make everything Easter-y with simple crafts that your little ones can help with.  Pinterest has a ton of cute Easter ideas, from bunnies to baskets and everything in between!

Avoid the Stress

If you want to make a holiday run smoothly, keep things simple.  Avoid the stress of over-planning, overstretching yourself, and over thinking.  Easter is a holiday, one where you should be able to enjoy special time with your family - not get worked up over a burnt ham or timing dinner plans.  

Maybe that's why I like HoneyBaked Ham so much.  You just pop into one of their stores, pick up a ham and/or turkey and some of their heat-and-serve sides, and dinner is something you don't have to worry about!


HoneyBaked Ham has even a coupon to help you save $5 on your Easter dinner. Just click that link to print! (Offer valid 3.14.15 – 4.4.15. Must present coupon at time of purchase to receive offer.
