Apple Dumplings


These are the easiest apple dumplings you will ever make and they are so delicious, you never need to try another recipe. A friend linked to this apple dumpling recipe on Pioneer Woman’s site and I just had to try it. It was definitely a keeper, so I’m linking to it here to share with you and so that I never lose the recipe.  Go make these, drop some vanilla bean ice cream on top, then come back and try to tell me you didn’t eat the whole pan.

Mexican Casserole

I first found this recipe over at Blissfully Domestic, but I’ve adapted it just a little by adding black beans. My family loves it! It’s a quick and easy meal and is perfect for big family get togethers because it is filling and everyone can top it their own way!


2 pounds ground beef, browned
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 (10-ounce) can Ro-Tel tomatoes
1 envelope taco seasoning
2 (8-count) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 (8-ounce) box Mexican Velveeta, sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Combine browned ground beef with Ro-Tel tomatoes, black beans, taco seasoning, and cheese in skillet. Stir and cook just long enough to melt cheese.

For your crust, simply press 1 can of crescent rolls into bottom of a lightly greased 9×13 pan.

Layer beef mixture on top of crust and spread other can of crescent rolls on top.

Bake 15-20 minutes.

Suggestions: Serve with sour cream, lettuce, tomato, olives, rice and beans for a true Mexican meal!

Easy Cheesecake

My sister made this yummy dessert one evening when we were at her house for dinner.  It was absolutely delicious and very easy to make.

1 can crescent rolls
1 8oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Spread rolls with the wide sides together in center of pan.  The points should be toward the outside of the pan forming four triangles on each side. Press the dough together in the middle.

Mix cream cheese, egg, sugar, flour and lemon juice until fluffy. Pour over the center of the rolls. Fold points over top of cream cheese mixture and press ends down to prevent oozing.
