(thanks to my SIL, Sally for this super easy, delicious recipe)

Grab a french bread tube (I used Pillsbury pizza dough in a can) and unroll it onto a silpat, or wax paper (the dough will be sticky, try to keep it cold)
Then layer it with 6 oz (or more) of deli sliced ham, 6 oz of sliced swiss (I used grated Mozzarella), chives and crumbled bacon pieces.
Leave almost an inch on all sides free from the ingredients. then just roll it up.
Place seem side down on a cookie sheet and tuck the sides under. Then cut 4-5, 1/4 deep lines on top.
Cook for about 30 minutes @ 350 or until its golden brown.

I usually serve it will a big fruit salad or even soup.

You can also do it with Mozzarella and pepperoni and then dip in pizza sauce.

Easy White Chicken Chili

I mentioned to a coworker that I was in a cooking slump, and so she sent me a link to this recipe, stating how easy and good it was. I have to agree! If I had to choose a favorite White Chicken Chili, it would have to be THIS one, but this new recipe is so much easier and faster--it's great for a last minute dinner!

Cottage Cheese Salad

I realize this is not everyone's favorite salad. In fact, it may not be MOST people's favorite. But it is one of mine--probably because I grew up on it and it reminds me of my mom. She is a no fuss kind of person. This salad has her name all over it.

1 large container of cottage cheese (2 lbs)
1 8oz. container of cool whip
1 large packet of J-Ello
canned fruit

I made this with Fat Free cottage cheese and cool whip, sugar free orange J-Ello and 2 cans of mandarin oranges, drained. This made a large bowl that I ate over the course of a few days.
