PIZZA PINWHEELS

pizza-pinwheels-bsb_-top_As I was searching in Pinterest for some treat. I found lots of yummy snacks, but these Pizza-Pinwheels caught my tummy’s attention and I just can’t help myself sharing it.

Pizza-Pinwheels

makes 13-15 pinwheels, about 4-6 servings

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 TBSP yeast
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 TBSP oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2- 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2- 2 cups Ragu® Six Cheese Pasta Sauce + more for dipping
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups total pizza toppings- mini pepperoni, diced ham, sliced olives, and pineapple tidbits, etc.

Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a mixing bowl and let sit for about 3-4 minutes, until yeast is bubbling up. Add in oil, salt and flour. Start with 2 1/2 cups of flour, then add more until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. (I use a mixer for this part as it makes it just so much easier!) Continue mixing for an additional 3-4 minutes, then cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 15 minutes. In cold weather, I like to turn my oven on for about 3 or 4 minutes, then turn it off and let my dough rest in the oven.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Spray counter top with non-stick cooking spray and roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Top with Ragu® Pasta Sauce and spread to coat dough. sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Add pizza toppings- I did a section of dough for pepperoni pinwheels, another section with just cheese and a third with ham and pineapple. Top with another 1 cup of cheese.

Starting with one of the long sides of the rectangle, roll dough up tightly, pinching the seams to close at the end. Use a sharp, thin knife to cut 1 1/2″ sections of dough from the large roll. This will result in about 15 pinwheels.

Set pinwheels on a large greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Return to oven for an additional 1-2 minutes, until cheese is melted and rolls are just beginning to turn golden brown.

Serve hot with warmed Ragu® Pasta Sauce to dip on the side.

Soft, homemade dough with delicious pizza toppings inside, melted cheese on top and a Ragu pasta sauce- that’s what makes these Pizza Pinwheels an amazing treat for everyone.

Approval of sex education in K-12 curriculum

In the Philippines, more and more teenagers have been involved in pre-marital sex and the reason why is because of the lack of education about sexuality. It is important for the teenagers to learn and be aware of it in order to avoid unwanted pregnancies and STDs that may greatly affect the course of life involved. The reason we made this petition is because of the following: to decrease the highly increasing unwanted pregnancies and STDs cases in the Philippines, to facilitate adolescents to gain knowledge, attitudes, skills and values to make appropriate and healthy choices in their sexual behavior, and to teach them the necessary knowledge and the correct way of procreation.

 

We, a student and teenager in mind, greatly concern us that many of our fellow peers are experiencing great losses in their lives due to having committed pre-marital sex alone. On the other hand, we also fully understand that Philippines is a Catholic country and sex is considered as a sacred thing and should not be easily mentioned in our daily living. However, we also believe in the separation of the state and the church. We have faith that the approval of the aforementioned will provide along the way to compensate for the misunderstandings between church and the state and will continue to coexist.

 

Sex is a natural part of life, and it happens with or without sex education. 41% of Filipino 18-year-olds have had intercourse. 99% of Filipinos will have sex in their lifetime. No school in the Philippines require sex and HIV education be taught in schools. Sex is a fundamental part of being human; but less than zero of our school in the Philippines require sex and HIV education because of the church, and most of what is taught are sub-par. Just because we refuse to talk about sex doesn’t mean it’s just going to go away.

 

Sex education will provide the knowledge about the proper way to have a safe sexual intercourse and when is the appropriate time to do it. Sex education is important. It’s been proven time and time again. We know students who receive formal sex education in schools are shown to first have sexual intercourse later than students who have not had sex education. Sex education does not encourage teenagers to have sex, it does quite the opposite.

 

Every teenager should have sex education incorporated into their schooling. It shouldn’t be opt-in or opt-out but mandatory. Why should parents be able to opt their children in or out of a subject that they’ll need later in life, one way or another? Sex education should be mandatory, comprehensive, medically accurate, and taught throughout student’s school years, just like math. It’s been shown to help students, not hurt. Not only is having access to sex education that is not only comprehensive but medically accurate a human right; it’s our fundamental duty as a society to educate the next generation. Currently, we are failing.

 

We call on the Department of Education in the Philippines to approve and include sex education in the newly implemented K-12 curriculum for the reasons stated above. We strongly believe that education plays an important role in molding a person’s decisions and we respectfully declare that through the approval of including sex education will prove worthy and beneficial in the long run. According to Mandela, education is a weapon. In correlation with this, we may be able to solve most of the aforementioned problem above in a swift and efficient manner so we deeply hope that it will be approved.

It was the day I first met you

You were standing in the corner

With your face all blue

Couldn’t help but wonder

 

The way life goes

In a world where

You easily rose

Here I am watching your flair

 

Hoping and wishing

I’ll get noticed soon

A boy good at pimping

Sadly, the world ended at noon.

Red Velvet Nutella Stuffed Cookies

Are you a dessert gourmand who’s craving for some sweet stuff?

Then these DIY yummy cookies (recipe from A Cookie Named Desire) is a must try.

These are the required ingredients:

Refrigerated

1 Egg

Condiments

18 tsp Nutella

Baking & Spices

1 2/3 cups All-purpose flour

1 tsp Baking soda

3/4 cups Brown sugar, lightly packed light

1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa, powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 cup Sugar

2 tsp Vanilla extract

Dairy

1/2 Butter, unsalted

1 tbsp Milk

Other

1¾ tablespoons red velvet emulsion (or regular red food coloring)

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Beat the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and beat well. Beat in the milk, vanilla, and red velvet emulsion (or red food coloring). Add in the flour mixture and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Chill the dough for an hour. At the same time, drop teaspoon dollops of Nutella onto parchment paper and freeze. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Take out 1 tablespoon of dough and place a frozen teaspoon of Nutella onto the dough. Add another half tablespoon of dough over the Nutella and cover the dollop. Roll the dough between your hands to form a ball. Repeat the the remaining dough and Nutella. You may need to chill the dough again halfway through. I found the dough to be a bit sticky. I also kept my Nutella in the freezer and took out a teaspoon as I needed it because it thaws out fairly quickly.
  5. Bake the cookies for 9 – 10 minutes. The cookies will still be puffy. Gently press down with a spatula and top with mire chocolate chips if desired.6c7139b4bb9be5be1c5fe63f9c9229d8

Tired of countless people dictating you what to become? Guess what? It’s your own life, you can become anything you want to be and they can’t do anything about it. Unless you wanna become a superhero with super strength, super speed, blablabla then I suggest you give up.

We all know that there will always be someone better than our self, but you don’t need to be insecure or jealous about it because it’s much more important to be happy and to love our self. “Make the most of yourself….for that is all there is of you.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
