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!

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

my ex is going through the same thing. Call the police now. Things will get out of hand. My brothers friend has been living with us for about 2 weeks becuz his dad punched him in the face. Call 911 now. They will help you. Just say you have been abused by your family member and they will take it from there. If you want, add me and we can talk

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.
