Corn Dogs


1 cup yellow corn meal
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. black pepper
1/4 cup sugar
4 t. baking powder
1 egg
1 cup + 2 t. milk
1 quart vegetable oil
2 16oz. packages of hot dogs
16 wooden skewers

Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, black pepper, sugar and baking powder.  Stir in egg and milk.  Pre-heat oil in deep saucepan over medium heat.  Insert skewers into hot dogs. (I bought some bamboo skewers from my local Asian mart for in-expensive.) Roll hot dogs in batter until well coated. Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time, until lightly brown.  Flip after a minute and a half or so.  Let them drain on a paper towel.  

*CAUTION* Please be aware when purchasing your hot dogs.  Some have wheat and gluten in them.  Read the label and know your ingredients! How? Refer to your phone apps! 


Homemade Pizza

I have never been a pizza fan, perhaps the reason why is that I always felt sick when I ate it, and thus related an upset stomach to the taste of pizza.  However, I have changed my mind!  This crust recipe makes excellent bread sticks as well!  With this DELICIOUS crust, your taste buds will thank you. 

Pizza Crust:

1 T. dry yeast
2/3 cup rice flour (brown or white)
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 t. xanthan gum
1/2 t. salt
1 t. Italian herb seasoning
1 t. oregano
1/2 t. garlic powder
2/3 cup warm milk (or non dairy milk)
1/2 t. sugar
1 t. olive oil
1 t. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese
*Extra rice flour for sprinkling

Begin with a standard mixer fitted with wire whisk attachments (not kneading attachment). Combine sugar, warm milk and sprinkle yeast over mixture.  Cover and let sit for 2-3 minutes until bubbly. Add in remaining ingredients.  Mix well for 5 minutes until dough has pulled away from sides of bowl.  This will be a very soft dough.  Press onto your baking sheet, sprinkling extra rice flour when needed.  Create a lip at the edge of your crust to keep the toppings on.  Cook at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.


1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 t. oregano
1/2 t. onion powder
1/8 t. garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix with whisk.  Spread onto baked pizza crust, and top with your favorite ingredients. 

Cook for 20-25 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes and serve.
