Cheddar Pigs in a Blanket

Well tonight starts the Sweet Sixteen round of March Madness and there will be games on TV non stop through the weekend. So tonight I am bringing you another tasty party food: Cheddar Pigs in a Blanket. Another game time food that is easy to make and you only need five ingredients! Serve these along side Party Meatballs ;)

Cheddar Pigs In A Blanket

Cheddar Pigs in a Blanket


1 package Crescent Rolls (8 count)

1 package mini franks

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese


Cheddar Pigs in a Blanket(I cut this recipe in half, which is why there is a package of 4 crescent rolls!)

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the mini hot dogs. Cook for 2-3 minutes then drain and set aside.

Unroll the crescent rolls on a flat surface. Use a pizza cutter to cut through the triangles, so that each original triangle will become 4 mini triangles.

Add a little shredded cheddar cheese to each triangle of dough, then add a mini hot dog on top.

Party Meatballs! Perfect for March Madness!

Who else watched basketball ALL weekend. And by “weekend” I mean from last Thursday until Sunday? It seemed to be on everywhere I went. Mike and I went to our friends’ house for dinner and they don’t have cable. I talked Mike out of panic mode and reminded him they had internet and all the games were streaming. He brought his HDMI cable, hooked his computer up to the TV and the night quickly changed form couples hangout dinner night to ladies night in the kitchen and men’s basketball viewing party in the living room. Crisis averted! My friend made the most delicious pizza ever and I just got her sauce recipe and can’t wait to make it at home. I’ll share it once I do! I’m thinking maybe this weekend!

Party Meatballs

Well for those of you voluntarily or forcefully watching NCAA Men’s Basketball games, or for those of you who are not roped in to the “madness” but just enjoy good party food, I am going to share with you my recipe for Party Meatballs! These babies are so good, it’s hard to not eat 20 of them. They consist of only THREE ingredients, including the meatballs, and are made in the slow cooker. Couldn’t be easier. Here’s how you do it:

Balsamic Mixed Vegetables and the Start of March Madness!

Who else is excited for March Madness?! I know this is typically a “guy thing” but I don’t follow the norms and I am excited. I have two brackets in my office pool and two brackets in a pool with my friends for a grand total of FOUR brackets. Yes, four. It took me an hour and a half to complete these brackets yesterday and I was really thinking I over committed myself when I started on the third one. Last year I came in second in the pool with my friends and third in my office pool, so I’m really looking for first this year. *Fingers crossed*

Balsamic Mixed Vegetables

Last night Mike and I had the BEST dinner. It was something I just threw together based off of what I had on hand and it turned out so good which made me very excited. I get excited easily, obviously.

Capellini Pomodoro

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I do not like corned beef or cabbage, so I will not be sharing that with you today. For dinner I made a very yummy Capellini Pomodoro.

This Capellini Pomodoro was fresh tasting and light. Mike and I cleaned our bowls and didn’t feel guilty about it! It also couldn’t be easier to make and that is always a plus. Here’s how you do it:
