Crescent Roll Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 oz) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1(156ml) can of tomato paste
  • ½ can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp of basil (dried or chopped fresh...but fresh is always best!)
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Dash of pepper (optional)
  • An assortment of your favourite pizza toppings

Some good topping ideas would be ham, pepperoni, salami, thinly sliced mushrooms, pineapple, sliced olives, spinach, green peppers or more fresh basil. (Hint! If you’re hosting the party make sure there are topping choices for your guests with special diets)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
  2. In a medium sized bowl mix together tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, basil and pepper, set bowl aside
  3. Carefully unroll your crescent rolls onto a greased cookie sheet (Hint! Make smaller personal pizzas by cutting the dough into smaller squares)
  4. With clean fingers lightly press the lines of the crescents together until you can’t see them anymore and push the dough out to the edges of the pan
  5. Adding a spoonful at a time, spread your tomato mixture over your pizza crust (Hint! Leave the edge sauce-free so you have a place to grab your slice)
  6. Sprinkle half your grated mozzarella cheese over the tomato sauce
  7. Now it’s time to get creative and add all your favourite toppings
  8. Add the remaining cheese and pop that pie in the oven!
  9. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes, until crust is browned. Let the pizza cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting with a rolling pizza cutter.

Stick Em Up Smores

Ingredients:

  • 1 16oz bag of large marshmallows
  • 1 16oz bag of chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers (Hint! Dark chocolate is a little bitter and less sweet. Milk chocolate is smooth and sweet. If you can, get a taste of both to decide which you like better)
  • 1 box crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • Lollipop sticks or Popsicle sticks

Special Equipment: Double boiler (Wha?! A double boiler is a two piece pot – the pot on the bottom is filled with boiling water and the second pot fits inside so the bottom is being warmed by the heat of the water. This is a technique for gentle melting)

Instructions:

  1. Insert a lollipop stick into the center of each large marshmallow, about ¾ of the way in.
  2. Pour the graham crumbs into a large shallow bowl and set aside
  3. Fill the bottom part of the double boiler with water and bring to boil over medium heat
  4. Place the chocolate in the top part of the double boiler and place over hot water
  5. Stir the chocolate with a stick or fork until it is smooth  and has no lumps
  6. Dip your marshmallow sticks into the melted chocolate and roll around until it is mostly covered. Roll chocolate marshmallow in the graham crumbs
  7. Stand up on a piece of wax paper to dry and put in the fridge for 1 hour

Remember, be creative, have fun and above all, safety first! Always talk to the adult in charge before you get your chef on! Happy cooking!

Everytime I ask my dad for something, its no. Yesterday I asked if I could go to the 5sos concert, he said no, and I asked why. He said there was no one to take me. My friend offered to take me, since she is going. I asked for money for the ticket, and he asked how much it was. I said it was $24, and he said that is too much and that he just bought me a phone yesterday. (my phone was an update, IT WAS 99 CENTS!) My friend then offered to pay for my ticket, and I told her I couldnt let her do it, she has bought me too many things already. WHat d0 i do? How do I convince my parents? It will be my first concert.

throughout school I have always been picked on weither it be because of my interests or just my personality. In middle school I was called ####### everyday by all the guys in my grade. One of my teachers even bullied me and my mom never believed me because my teacher was so nice to her... I ended up crying on the 3rd day of my freshman year because the kids in my class were so mean to me... I'm gonna be a sophomore in highschool this year and I really don't want to go back to school because I'm afraid that it will be a repeat of freshman year... I need advice on how to make the best of the rest of school if I have to deal with the people that bully me...
