Yogurt Muffins (from Denise)

1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar (can use brown, white, or I use cane sugar)
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup strawberry yogurt (fill the 1/2 measuring cup
3/4 full and the rest of the way with water)
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup oil

1/4 cup brown sugar (or cane sugar)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together.
Add the egg, yogurt, vanilla and oil. Mix well.
Pour into greased muffin tins.

For the
topping: In a separate bowl mix brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over muffins.
Bake at 375
for 15-20 minutes.

Homemade Pizza Sauce (from Denise)

I like to use organic ingredients for our homemade pizza, but
organic pizza sauce can be pretty pricey, so I buy organic
tomato sauce and paste when it's on sale and make my own
pizza sauce. Here's what I use...

1/2 of a 15 1/2 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 of a 6 oz can tomato paste
1 medium clove of garlic, minced (or 1/4 tsp garlic powder AND 1/4 tsp
onion powder)
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp parsley

Mix all together and spread over two pizza crusts.
Can add a little more tomato sauce for a thinner
consistency. Note: Do not save after use.
The sauce gets quite clumpy.
