Homemade Pepperoni Rolls


These were fun!
It was just my daughter and I for supper this evening,
so this was a perfect little Friday night pizza treat.


Place four slices of pepperoni and half a mozzarella cheese stick 
on a crescent roll.  Roll up starting with the long side.
Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
Bake at 450 for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with pizza sauce.
Enjoy! :-)

This Week In My Kitchen













And, it looks like this is the last one of these blog hops the blog author at Beauty That Moves
is going to host.  That's too bad - I really enjoyed the few weeks that I joined in with "This Week In My Kitchen"!

~One Pot Pasta~


This. Was. Yummy.

I was very skeptical, but so glad I finally tried the 
"one pot pasta" recipe I've seen all over Pinterest. 
Turns out, it's actually a Martha Stewart recipe.


The recipe was right up my alley from the start 
because it uses all fresh ingredients.

You place linguine, onions, garlic, 
tomatoes, and herbs in a pot.


Then you add olive oil, seasonings, and water and bring to a rolling boil.


Keep it at a gentle boil and stir for 10 minutes.
That's it!

What you get, though, is much more than the simple ingredients would lend you to expect.
The pasta is very flavorful and a rich, creamy sauce just seems to come out of nowhere!


Top with your favorite Italian cheese
(freshly grated parmesan at my house)
and you have a simply delicious 
one pot pasta supper!


Enjoy!

It's National Pumpkin Day!


Oh how I love all things pumpkin!  Do you?

October 26th is National Pumpkin Day - a day to celebrate pumpkins. 

Here is link to some of my favorite pumpkin recipes.

Here is a link to the recipe for my newest favorite pumpkin recipe -
Pumpkin Maple Cream Trifle.

I made this dessert for our October church potluck and it was SO good.
I had a feeling I was really going to like it and that is why I made it for the pot luck. 
Other than my daughter, the rest of my family is anti-pumpkin.  Isn't that sad? :-( 
So when I make something pumpkin-y I usually have a lot of leftovers.
When I make something for a potluck I am able to try it out, 
but I am also only able to have one serving! ;-)




I can't wait to make it again for Thanksgiving!
It reminded me of the eclair cake I make in the summertime,
but with pumpkiny, autumny goodness!

And, last, but not least, here is a link to the pumpkin recipes that I want to try in the future. :-)

Happy Pumpkin Day!  
Enjoy!
