Looking for an easy weeknight dinner? These simple 4-ingredient pepperoni pizza rolls are bound to please even your pickiest eaters!
Is there any other sure-fire win in every mom’s dinner arsenal than pizza? It’s a classic kid favorite and for a good reason. The combination of bread, tomato sauce, and cheese is irresistible to toddlers and adults a like, no matter the form.
When the temperatures start to drop, I happily turn my oven back on and crank up the heat. Fall and Winter find me regularly baking and cooking to warm up the house and our bellies.
After months of either grill cooking or not cooking at all, I’m more than happy to face the sink full of dishes in the name of a hot meal. (even though I’m stuck handwashing since we have no dishwasher!)
One of my favorite things to bake early in the morning is cinnamon rolls. Here, Thanksgiving morning isn’t Thanksgiving morning without a fresh pan of them while watching the parade.
It’s what inspired me to make a fun dinner-time twist on a savory favorite.
