Crescent Chicken Roll-Ups


Hey guys.

Are ready for some pure comfort food? 




This is my mom's recipe and she made sure that I tell you all that. I loved it when she made these growing up. These are so good guys.

Here's what you need.


Chopped Onion (I used the dried kind because I was in a hurry), Salt, Pepper, Cream Cheese, Crescent dough, Pimientos, and Butter. The only things not pictured here is the chicken and that's because I was cooking it, and some water or chicken broth. Also, I only did a half recipe of this, otherwise you need more cream cheese and crescent roll dough.


So this is my chicken when it was cooked and chopped up. 


In a bowl, mix together the chicken, chicken broth or water, cream cheese, salt, pepper, pimientos and onion. 

Next, get your crescent dough ready. I do these a little different than my mom. I do single or half size by only using one crescent dough triangle per roll-up. 


If you want to make larger roll-ups, put two triangles together like this. This way is good if these are the main dish. When I have made them recently, I have made them in addition to another main dish, or to take to a get-together or party.


Evenly divide out the filling to each triangle.


Here is how I roll them up. Pinch each corner of the wide end and pull up. Pinch dough together to seal. Then pull the narrow pointy end up other the already rolled-up part and just make sure it is all wrapped and pinched together. You don't want any of that yummy filling leaking out during baking!


Next melt some butter and just brush some over each roll-up.



Just follow the package directions for the cooking time. 


I didn't get a picture of the filling on these since I was taking these to a friends house and had to run out the door. But you can almost imagine the creamy, hot, savory filling instead. So imagine it with me today and hurry and make them so you can taste and see for yourself! You won't regret it!

Here is the recipe.

Crescent Chicken Roll-Ups



2 cups cooked chicken (cubed)
2 tablespoons chicken broth
3 tablespoons melted butter
3 Ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon chopped pimentos
Onion finely chopped
2 Packages original crescent roll

Mix together everything except the crescent rolls and butter. 
Open crescent rolls and leave them in a square. (This is the Large Roll-up way, or leave them separate for the way I showed you for smaller roll-ups.)
Divide meat mixture between crescent rolls. 
Brush with melted butter.
Bake at 375 degrees according to package directions until golden brown.

My $100 Kitchen Cabinet Makeover!

I'm so excited to share today's post. It's something I've been working on for about 2 months, on and off. But it is finished and so today I'm sharing how we renovated our kitchen cabinets for about $100.
When we bought our house in a little over a year ago, I fell in love with the kitchen just by the listings photos.

UPDATE!!! Check out this post to see how I also stained my island!


It was HUGE and there was about a billion cabinets. The kitchen in our old house was a pretty good size also and I knew I would not be content with a smaller kitchen. So these pictures sold me.
We bought the house and moved in and I lived with the kitchen for awhile but the cabinet color was really bugging me. I liked the counter tops well enough but they clashed with the cabinets. We did not have the money to replace all those cabinets so the next decision was to either paint or stain them.
I stumbled upon General Finishes Gel Stain and thought the idea of it was awesome. There's …

$5 Laundry "Room" Update

I don't have a laundry room.




I have a laundry closet right off the kitchen. I actually love it there because it is so convenient to keep laundry going through out the day. I wish it was a little bigger and I have future plans down the road, but for now I have to keep it organized or there is just not enough room for it all!

Here was the state of my closet before. Not too bad, but there were things in there that shouldn't be in there (a sprinkler??) and it just was cluttered. Not to mention plain and boring.
I think I've mentioned before on here how much I love Dollar Tree. If not, I'll say it now. I love Dollar Tree! They have some of the cutest stuff! So I went there today to find some things to organize this with. Here's what I came up with.

I bought the 3 aqua colored baskets today and the green and gray tray I was already using. 
I wiped everything down and got to work. This is what it looks like now.

The two hanging baskets underneath are simply hooked through…

Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover in Purple & White

I get these ideas and they just won't let up until I can actually do them. My mom calls these "getting a bee in my bonnet".

Well, I had a bee in my bonnet yesterday.


This was our main bathroom when we moved in. These were the seller's towel and shower curtain.They had obviously updated a few things in this bathroom. But there is no window and it is very dark and dreary in here. Also, the paint was in a flat finish which shows up every dirty mark and imperfection. Plus, I just hated the color. It looks grey, but it's like a greige. I call it the color of cement. Blech.
So yesterday I had had it. The seller left the paint they used and there was a full gallon of the semi-gloss extra white they had used on the baseboards, doors and trim. I love the look of bead board in bathrooms when it goes up about 2/3 of the way. But we weren't messing with that right now. I was hoping I could get a similar effect by just painting the walls white 2/3 of the way up. I then th…
