Brown Sugar Cinnamon Crescent Rolls

I wanted a quick recipe for Christmas Eve breakfast (we celebrated our Christmas on the 24th this year, since we had a family party on the 25th), and had found this (E, N) recipe previously.  It was a huge hit!  I only put the glaze on half of the rolls, just because I don’t like things too […]

Chicken Cordon Bleu

This was in a 5-ingredient magazine (by Taste of Home), but I decided to add a few more to make it more tasty. If you use low-fat cheese, this recipe is actually pretty healthy, and packed with protein.  I served mine with peas, roasted sweet potato, and brown rice with Craisins. Yum! Chicken Cordon Bleu […]

Tuna and Bean Casserole

What you’ll need: (You’ll also need some frozen mixed veggies and cannellini beans- I just forgot to include those in the picture) Whole wheat pasta (I used about 2 cups dry) 2 cans of tuna in water (or 1 really big can, like I found) […]

Thursday Thoughts

Hello! I hope you have been enjoying the first day of December. I’m going to start a new blog tradition called Thursday Thoughts. Why? There’s always something on my mind that I want to share with somebody, and I like making lists. I think those are good enough reasons 😉 The 99p Store has the best […]
