Cooking on Spring Break

We eat this fruit salad weekly! I use sugar free pudding mix, fat free cool whip and fruit. Sometimes I add chopped apple or a can of mandarin orange pieces. You don't need to add milk. Just drain your pineapples and use your juice to mix the pudding in!

The mixture will be thick. Add all your fruits and nuts and then add the cool whip. You can add the whole container or just half. In this salad, I used half.

This is soooooo good and GUILT FREE! I have even made it with the sugar free pistachio, white chocolate, and cheesecake flavor pudding.

Okay, on to the not so guilt free........If you live close to Huntsville or College Station, you may have eaten Double Daves's pepperoni rolls. Well, we love them. You can get them 2 for 1 on Tuesdays, but we are hardly ever there on Tuesdays. Well, I had a craving so I decided to try them at home. I used Jiffy pizza crust mix (41 cents a box!), turkey pepperoni, and mozzerella. I chopped about a handful of pepperoni and added some basil, garlic powder, and oregano to the mix. (I used 3 boxes of Jiffy mix) Make sure and let the dough rise. I rolled out the dough about 1/8" thick and cut into rectangles. Place 4 pepperonis and cheese down the middle and roll up closing the ends.
After putting them on a sprayed cookie sheet, let them rise a little more before baking them. Bake the rolls at 425 degrees until lightly brown. The 3 boxes made 18 rolls. I used just one package of pepperoni and one bag of cheese.

Oh my goodness! I sent a phone pic to Todd after I made them telling him they were fresh out of the oven. He was home in a matter of minutes! These are really good. Not Double Dave's but they'll do!
