Pepperoni pinwheels

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • pepperoni

Directions:

  1. Unroll crescent rolls into 4 rectangles, pinch seams together
  2. Lay shredded cheese and pepperoni onto rectangle (this is so vague because, really, you can add as much or as little as you like. I wouldn’t go more than 2 Tablespoons of cheese though.)
  3. Starting with the shorter side, roll.
  4. Cut roll in half and then cut those pieces in half.  Place on greased cookie sheet or parchment and bake at 350 degrees F for 9-11 minutes.

This recipe is really so easy, I almost feel bad that the directions are so vague.

 

This turns into a wonderful roasted garlic white bean dip

 

When garlic is roasted, it takes on this sweet, creamy, caramelized taste.

Ingredients:

  • I head garlic, roasted
  • 1 15 oz can white beans, drained and rinsed.
  • juice from half a lemon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • veggies and pita chips

Directions:

  1. Cut the top part of the head of garlic off, place on a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. bunch up the foil, Roast the garlic at 400 degrees F for 40-50 minutes until brown and fragrant.  When garlic is cooled, remove pieces of garlic from the skin with a fork.
  2. In a food processor, or blender, put the drained and rinsed beans, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and garlic. Pulse a few times until pasty.  Drizzle in as much olive oil as it takes for it to come together into a smooth consistency.
  3. Serve with cut up carrots, bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, anything! We love them with whole grain pita chips
