Southern Breakfast on a Cold Winter Morning

Southern style sausage gravy and biscuits makes for the perfect breakfast on those particularly cold mornings. I love giving my children a taste of my family's southern flavors. Here is the way I have learned to make a delicious sausage gravy:
Cook a whole Genoa sausage (mild) in a large frying pan into small crumbles. Many people then add regular flour, but I use a seasoned flour and completely cover the sausage. Then I add whole milk until there is about three times as much milk then sausage, and bring to a boil. I also add a small amount of sugar to taste, because the spice of the sausage is sometimes too prominent for my children. After the milk is boiling, I stir and then let simmer. Once thickened, I pour onto large biscuits and serve. Yummy!

Pita Pizzas using Left Over Spaghetti Sauce

Pita Pizzas are always a favorite with my kids, and even better they are healthy. Today, I decided to use left-over spaghetti sauce and spread on the pita, topped with some shredded mozzarella and cheddar. After it baked, I sprinkled some grated parmesan on top. Delicious!
