Homemade Pizza Rolls

Sure, we know ordering a pizza over the phone is easy enough, but we wanted to switch things up and see what would happen if we paired our favorite pizza toppings with crescent rolls. We couldn’t have been more excited about how our experiment turned out!

We gathered some of our favorite fresh fruits, meats, and veggies from the grocery and chopped them into very small pieces so that they could easily fit on the triangle-shaped crescent roll. It was so fun testing out new food combinations on each roll.

Here are some of our favorite topping combinations:
-Mozzarella, pineapple, bacon bits, tomato sauce
-Feta, spinach, olives, tomatoes, olive oil
-Mozzarella, spinach, peppers

Once you have your toppings selected and placed on each individual triangle, roll the crescent roll up beginning with the larger end. We baked our rolls in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes, and they turned out so delicious!

We did learn a few things while creating these miniature pizza treats:
-A few toppings go a long way- remember that your toppings will need to fit within the inside of the roll, so you do not want to overload.
-If you feel that the toppings you have chosen weigh a bit, we suggest using two triangle pieces to “double wrap” your roll. Better safe than sorry!

Thanks for letting us share our pizza roll snacks with you!

XOXO!

Soup for a Rainy Day: Wild Rice and Chicken Soup

Recently, I decided to make a pot of soup for a coworker who wasn’t feeling too great. I came across this recipe in my mom’s kitchen a few weeks ago and fell in love with its unique flavor. It consists of simple ingredients that you can easily find in your local market, and the best news is, it’s so easy to make! All you need is a big soup pot or a crock pot, and you are ready to start cooking.

This recipe serves 12 people and only takes a couple of hours to cook!

3 cups of stock (I used 2 cups of vegetable stock and 1 cup of chicken stock)

3 cans of cream of potato soup

1 medium onion chopped

1 box of Uncle Ben’s wild rice (I used an additional packet of seasoning from another box just for extra flavor!)

2 pints of half and half (I used one regular and one fat free)

8 oz American cheese, shredded

2 cans of shredded chicken

Salt & pepper to taste

Curry powder to taste

I think soup is best when you’re sick or cuddled up with a good book on a rainy day. I hope you get the chance to try this recipe and find it tasty too!

Enjoy!
