I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Comfort Food starring Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Well, we're a little more than half way through February.  The last two days haven't been as cold.  50! Woo!  Even though the snow is melting and I can see the outside edges of my deck, it's so foggy today that I couldn't see two car-lengths in front of me while driving.  I still feel like I need to walk around the house in a fleece robe or a down blanket.  Also, I still really need comfort food.

Lately I've been very interested in putting Crescent Roll* dough with pretty much anything.  It bakes up so nice and has so much butteriness to it.  What's not to love? If I had had any today, I would have make a pizza/tart with asparagus and blue cheese.  I keep thinking about pot pies.  I love that they sell it without the little perforations now, too.  And these little bundles are like bites of Heaven.  Thanks to my friend Emily Volman for the inspiration.

Top row: Apples and brie
Middle row: Apricot jam, goat cheese, thyme
Bottom row: Apples and bluecheese

Make little bundles of whatever you like, bake them in the oven at 350 for a few minutes. (5 -10?)

What are your favorite comfort foods?

    Can I come live with you?

    I've been DYING to make Crescent Dogs. Now I MUST do so.

  2. "Staring"? Well, they do look delicious so I guess I am.

  3. Yummmmmy! Those look incredibly delicious! I'm a huge sucker for goat cheese, so those will definitely be the first ones I try. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Tuna cups! just like a tuna melt, except instead of putting it on toast, you line a muffin tin with crescent rolls and fill them with your tuna-y-cheese-y goodness.
