Diet Pizza Recipe

Pin It
Last year my football post was all about 
PIZZA on the Grill and this year....
It's diet pizza.... What a difference
 a year makes????
HERE's the Grilled Pizza post too !

Below is "All About ME" update 

Diet Pizza This is a REALLY good one 
and easy to make, I had to find something, because I was missing pizza so much.


Diet pizza Recipe


The SECRET is Corn Tortillas(one shell 100 calories)
Diet pizza Recipe

Place the Tortillas under the broiler and they will get a bit crispy, some will bubble up, that's OK, pop the bubble and I like them just crisp NOT brown, turn and do the other side too. 
Diet pizza Recipe

Add what ever you like, I'm a bit of:
Pizza Sauce (just cover shell)
Spinach
Onions
Olives
Pepperoni
Skim-low fat Mozzarella cheese (1/4 cup 80 calories)
I added a pit more, I needed dairy this day

Diet pizza Recipe
Toppings on Husbands

Flour shells will work too (110 calories per shell)


Bake at 350 (F) for 10- 15 minutes
Cut and serve, One-two pizza's per person
I know the cheese, but......

I eat one pizza and green salad ! 
(pizza about 310 calories)
VERY GOOD

Calorie counts are from the packages/products that I used, 
check your ingredients for calorie numbers

Self-Binding Quilt Tutorial

Pin It
Self-Binding Quilt Tutorial
Self Binding means: 
Bring the quilt backing to the front and using it as your binding

Step by Step How to do Self Binding on a Quilt

Trim the batting even with your quilt top

How to do Self Binding on a Quilt

Cut you backing 1" from the quilt edge

How to do Self Binding on a Quilt

Fold the backing to the edge of the quilt, 1/2", I like to press it down

How to do Self Binding on a Quilt



Again, fold the backing over onto the quilt top, make sure you are on the quilt top with the edge, this is your sewing edge, pin it down

How to do Self Binding on a Quilt

Fold the corner over as shown


And then do the steps as before, 
fold over half way and
then fold over half way again. 
Pin well.


Sometimes at the corner you will have to move it around a bit
to make the corner perfect, go slow and pin well. 



When I get it like I like,  pin and I press a bit, between pins and at the corner
it holds it just a bit better. 
Remember, pressing is up and down with an iron. 
Doing it up and down your fabric will not stretch or move.

The Quilt Ladies Shop


With your machine sew along the backing edge, do a few back stitches to hold ends


I like doing 2 rows of stitching, just my personal like.


One of the hot pads



As I remove something from the oven, I place one under it and one on top to keep the food warm

Stop over the purchase a Quilt Pattern for yourself !
