Easy Crescent Roll Danish

Remember this post? I said I bought packs of the Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough Sheet for 2/1.00 at the local discount grocery store. Last time I made 15 Minute Garlic Cheese Twists and I said I would share another recipe using these dough sheets. 

This isn't exactly a danish, but close enough. If you need a quick and easy dessert or something special for a breakfast or brunch, this fits the bill.

I've based my recipe on this one at Pillsbury.

Mix softened cream cheese, vanilla and sugar together.

Roll out one package of crescent roll dough.

Place cream cheese filling mixture in the middle of crescent roll dough and fold in sides to cover up the edge of the cream cheese mixture.

NOTE: Next time I make this, I would double the cream cheese mixture ingredients amounts to make a thicker layer of cream cheese.

Mix together some sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on crust. 

I made a raspberry sauce using this recipe, but it was a little too thin for this recipe, so I would just use your favorite seedless jam. 

Bake according to package directions, or until dough is golden brown.

Make a quick icing with powdered sugar and milk and drizzle over the top after the danish has slightly cooled.

Serve immediately, and enjoy!

Easy Crescent Roll Danish
(I've adjusted these measurements to be the doubled amount for the cream cheese recipe. As I said above, This needed a thicker cream cheese filling layer.)

2 TB Sugar

Mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on crust. 
Spread sauce and jam on top of cream cheese.
Bake according to package directions on back of crescent roll dough sheet. 
Mix together confectioners sugar and milk and drizzle over top of danish, and serve immediately.

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…

Bi-Weekly Meal Plan, $113 Aldi Haul and Freezing Sloppy Joes

It has been crazy around here lately! We were gone on our anniversary trip and as soon as we got back we found out that my husband's grandmother had passed away. So two days after we got home, we packed up again and drove 8 hours away, stayed for 3 days and came back.

Today I had to get groceries, so I planned out my menu and shopping list. But when I got to the grocery store, I realized I had forgotten my list! I got as many things as I could remember and even some I knew weren't on my list, and I think I did pretty good! After I got home, I re-wrote a list of things that I forgot, so I'll be going back out tonight and getting the few things I forgot. I'm going to try out our new Neighborhood Wal-mart grocery store. Do you have one of those near you? Our's has only been open about a month and I have not been in yet. I have heard great things about it though.

Here is what I ended up getting at Aldi. They have really great meat and produce deals. And their milk is a…
