French Dip Crescent Rolls Recipe

French Dip Crescent Rolls

 

Crescent Rolls are one of my favorite things to experiment with when it comes to new recipes, so when I stumbled across the idea of making a French Dip Crescent Rolls Recipe I knew I had to try it! It was just the right amount of buttery crescents, melted cheese, and warm roast beef. Another great reason to make these yummy recipe is portion control. I don’t know about you, but French Dips are always made so big, and I’m going to be honest, if it’s in front of me I’m going to eat it all. With these I can just eat 2 and be good to go! For the “dip” for the French Dip I used a dry onion soup mix, and it worked really well! This French Dip Crescent Rolls Recipe was a huge hit with my whole family and I’m sure it will be with yours as well! Continue reading

Easy PorkChop Recipes: Pork Alfredo Tortellini

Pork Alfredo Tortellini

 

As a busy wife and mother, I am not only frugal with my pocket book but I am frugal with my time. I like to grocery shop only twice a month so that I am not tempted to buy things I do not need making random stops for one or two things. That is why I love shopping at Aldi . They allow me to stock up on my basics, purchase fruits and vegetables, dairy, and fresh meat. Last week we picked up a pack of Pork Chops which I cooked for dinner in the crock pot. It was a going to be a long week so I cooked the whole pack thinking I could make a second meal out of the leftovers. However when I went to the fridge,I found only 3 pork chops left. Someone had gotten hungry and eaten one or two. I was now left with a dilemma. How do you feed 6 people with only 3 pork chops? I did and so can you!Continue reading

Low Calorie Flatbread Pizza Recipe

Low Calorie Flatbread Pizza Recipe

Low Calorie Pizza

 

As most of you know, I’ve been trying to eat healthy, and live a low calorie lifestyle, but I have a confession….I LOVE pizza. More than any sweets, or any other kind of bad for you food, I just want pizza. But when I realized that most pizzas can pack up to 300 calorie a slice (and really, who can stop at one!?) I knew I had to find some way to enjoy pizza, without feeling super guilty afterwords. By making some minor adjustments, I made a super yummy (and filling) Low Calorie Flatbread Pizza Recipe  out of a single piece of flatbread! By thinning the bread, switching out regular pepperoni to turkey pepperoni, and making sure you grab a part skim milk cheese, you are saving a lot of calories without sacrificing taste. Perfect for your tastebuds and your waistline! Continue reading
