Where is CraftyGirl?

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a few days. We've gotten hit with some sort of sickness here in the Wilson household! Hubby is fairing much better than I am - He's just slightly congested, whereas I have a fever of 102, congestion, sore throat, earache, etc. Whew!

So, here's hoping I'll be back in a day or two with a new post, new ideas and recipes, and even more!



Stay crafty!...and healthy!

CraftyGirl Cooks: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread

After browsing on Pinterest the other day, I came across a recipe over at The Country Cook for Pull-Apart Pizza Bread...and I knew I had to try it. It features two of my favorite things: Pizza and bread! hehe.










As you can imagine, that plate didn't last long between my husband and I. We paired it with a salad for our dinner and it was filling AND super delicious.



So make sure to head over to The Country Cook for the recipe...and many others!



Until next time...stay crafty!
