Pizza Rollups

Pizza Rollups

1 package of Crescent Roll

2 mozzarella cheese sticks

16 pepperoni

pizza sauce

Preheat the oven to 375.  Grease a cookie sheet.  Unroll the Crescent dough.  On each triangle place 2 pepperoni and a 1/4 of the cheese stick.  Roll up and pinch the ends shut to prevent the cheese from leaking out.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Sauce on the side.  Yum!

First Day of School Strawberry Brownie Cupcakes

Quite a few people have asked me what’s it like to officially be a stay at home mom, now that the kids are back at school that is…and I say that it is AWESOME!!!!

After Andy and I dropped the boys off, he left me back at home and headed off to work.  As I was standing in my kitchen, I explained to mom that if we had a grandfather clock, the ticking would have been the only sound echoing through the house.  It was stone silent.  No children, friends, TV, music, washing machine, dog barking, you name it…there was nothing.  Molly was looking at me suspiciously, so we went for a walk.  Afterwards, I went into cleaning mode!  The upstairs was my focus and my goal was to wade my way through the disaster of a mess by the end of the week.

I thought that it would be nice to make the kids a fun snack when they got home from school, so Pinterest was where I landed!  We love strawberry and we love brownies, so I knew that this was the recipe for the day.

Strawberry Brownie Cupcakes

  • 1 box of strawberry cake mix
  • 1 box of brownie mix
  • 1 can of cream cheese icing
    Preheat the oven to 325.  I used Pam and greased two cupcakes pans.  In one bowl, prepare the strawberry mix according to the package directions.  In another bowl, prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions.  Fill each cupcake with 1/3 brownie mix and then top with 1/3 strawberry cake mix.  Bake for 25 minutes or until done.  Top with cream cheese icing.
