Pickled Eggs (Red Beet Pickled Eggs)
Growing up in the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the Pennsylvania Coal Region, pickled eggs (red beet eggs) were served at any picnic or major get together. Hard boiled eggs are pickled in a mixture of vinegar, sugar and red beet juice along with red beets and additional water. Sure the eggs with be red in color in a few hours, but for the best flavor leave them infuse for at least three days. Nothing beets a pickled egg when the white has turned red all the way through to the yolk and it is infused with the sweet pickle flavor. Give it a try. Don't throw out the left over pickle juice, It taste great by itself.

20-minute Pizza Dough Recipe
Pizza dough in 20 minutes! Is it possible? It sure you. You can have home made pizza on the table in the time it takes for delivery. I would use this dough for that last minute meal or the snack attack when you do not have time to make a traditional longer rise pizza dough. This dough gets its speedy rise for the addition of extra yeast which can leave a slight yeasty taste. When ever possible, it is best to do a dough that has at least one rise, better yet if your dough can slow rise over night. Check out my NY Pizza dough for that. This is a good emergency quick dough. Make pizza now and preheat you oven at the same time. Enjoy.
