Roll me over!

Clearly, there is something in the air. This Diva has been on a cooking spree. It started Saturday and really hasn't stopped. The cold temps have me craving all sorts of comfort food. For last night's Filet Mignon dinner, I decided to make these crescent rolls. 9 times out of 10, I find that homemade rolls tend to be too much work and not enough flavor, so I typical default to Grands yummy biscuits. The effort for this recipe was minimal and the time committment not nearly as long as some homemade breads. Below are the rolls after an hour of proofing. Aren't they cute! It really made me want to make some gourmet pigs in a blanket. Ha

These were super easy and pretty good. Next time I'll probably scale back a little bit on the Bisquick, but otherwise, it's worth a make. I opted to top these little gems with a honey butter, but might try a Parmesan topping next.

Diva Delight: Book Report

I'll admit it: I was a hater...at least when LC's first book came out. I thought no way could this MTV reality star turn in a book that I would want to read. (Side note: I did love the first few seasons of Laguna Beach and The Hills, but after too much Speidi, I decided it was time for a split.) Well after enough hype, I had to check out it out. Come on, I've got to keep my finger on the pulse. I won't lie there was some skimming, but all in all, it's a fun poolside type read. It definitely makes you wonder where the line of fiction begins and reality ends. With scandals that were very much real life on the faux reality show, it's a silly, non-brain bending read. I for one am looking forward to the sequel.

Lasagna of the Week

It seems like every time I open a magazine that there's a new lasagna to try. I've got a fabulous mainstay from my Aunt, but you know me, I'm always open to something new, especially in this wintry snow season! Enter Free Form Lasagna. I pretty much made this one as is, but of course added the diced tomatoes with basil & oregano for extra measure. The overall flavor is delicious, but the free form of it all, left me scratching my head. With all the noodles going in different directions, the lasagna kinda looses it's form. I would go with the standard layering technique, but otherwise, super tasty!
