I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had Friday off, so mine was extra long (but still never long enough, right?). I’d like to say I was super productive with my day off, but I basically sat around playing video games, caught up on some TV, and baked a loaf of bread (recipe probably to come if I make it again and remember to take pictures. It was delicious and crazy easy).
With most of my posts, I wouldn’t know that anyone I interact with daily actually reads my recipes, but when I posted my broccoli and cheese stuffed rolls, pretty much everyone I know raved about how delicious they looked and tasted. I had some left over dough a few weeks ago and was craving something spicy, so I thought I’d try to get that kind of reaction again!
After not ever eating anything spicy for a long, long time, I’m suddenly obsessed. These would be just as good without the hot sauce, if you’re not into spicy. Cream cheese helps make these nice and creamy even if you eat them cold and keeps the spice in check. I threw in some spinach simply because that’s how I roll and it was a great combination. You could easily use another leafy green or even finely chopped cauliflower or broccoli. This recipe only uses half the dough, because I like always having extra in the fridge. Not sure what else to make? Double the recipe, try the broccoli and cheese rolls, make a pizza, or apple pie cinnamon rolls – it’s a very versatile dough! If you’re feeling lazy, thaw some frozen store bought pizza dough and it’ll save you having to make any and let it rise.
Side Note: I know a few people have made recipes from my blog, but I always wonder if there are more out there. I’m thinking about doing some sort of contest where people Tweet or email pictures of the food they’ve made and I’ll randomly select someone to get a gift card. Anyone have any suggestions for the logistics of this? I don’t use much social media (but am not opposed to setting something up for my blog). What should I use for this: Twitter, email, Instagram? Any suggestions?
