Every time I’ve had a crappy day, I mentally quote from The Replacements’ “Bastards of Young“: “God, what a mess.” Except I’m not on the ladder of success. And most days, it does feel like I’ve missed the whole first rung. Work stress is getting to me – It manifested itself in the temper tantrum I had when I spilled water all over my desk (at home), and I ended up doing one of those sweeps of (almost) everything in front of my keyboard onto the floor. I’m 41 years old, and still pulling this nonsense.

This week has been rough. We’ve had so much rain lately that our yard is out of control. It rained enough on Monday that the gutter on the north side of our house got backed up, and our dining room roof started leaking. Again. That happened once last summer too – But that was due to a slow-moving massive thunderstorm that flooded all of downtown Brookings. Still it makes me nervous about how much damage there is until we can get it fixed. We’re due to head to Ohio this summer to pick up some furniture from my dad, one of the pieces being his hutch. I’m not sure I want it in that same corner as my current hutch, as it’s a LOT nicer than what I have.

I’m trying to curb my habit, but things like this make me want to stress-eat salty snacks. Chips, crackers, cheese. These Salt and Pepper Parmesan Crackers fit the bill. I had some flatbread dough, and got the idea to make crackers from it – Much easier than the last time I made crackers from scratch!

The flatbread dough is already thinly rolled out, so all you have to do is score the dough, add your toppings, bake, and enjoy. It does help them to crisp up a bit by letting them cool completely before enjoying – Though some of them will still be slightly chewy, since this is technically bread dough.

Salt and Pepper Parmesan Crackers


  • 1 sheet of flatbread dough (I used Wewalka's)
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Unroll the flatbread dough on a large baking sheet, and using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, score the dough into squares, approximately 1 1/2-inches by 1 1/2-inches. Brush the dough with the olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake the dough for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Return to the oven to bake 3-5 more minutes, or until cheese is melted, and crackers are golden brown.
Remove from the oven, and cool completely before breaking apart and serving.
