Ab's Quick Stromboli!

With School now in full swing and college as well, I love simple easy recipes to make for dinner that can also double for lunch the next day! So here is my Recipe for Easy Stromboli:

Ab's Quick Stromboli

1-2 rolls of Pillsbury (C) Crusty French Loaf dough (depending on how many Stromboli you want to make.Add 1 roll per Stromboli.) 

 1 can of spaghetti sauce of your choice of flavor ( I like four cheese) 

3/4 to 1 lb. of each of the following: Virginia Ham, Hard Salami, Pepperoni, Baby Swiss cheese, Provolone (you can choose the meats that you wish if there are some of these you don't like.) 

Unroll the french bread till it's flat on the cookie sheet and spread some of the Spaghetti Sauce onto it. (you will not use the whole can of sauce)
Then start layering the meat  and cheese in whatever order you choose, I started with the ham: 
Then I topped the ham with Baby swiss:
Then I added Pepperoni 
Then Salami
Then Provolone Cheese
Then you roll it up sort of Jelly roll fashion but just enough so that the edges can seal, sealing all that yummyness inside! :)
Bake them at 350*F until the bread is golden brown 25-30 mins(might actually be a little longer, I didn't time them) .  Remove from oven and let cool. Serve warm with ranch dressing and leftover sauce. You can also add a salad and dessert if you wish!

Pinterest Cooking

Hello all! I have decided that with pinning all these recipes to pinterest that I need to blog how they turn out so I'm starting that adventure tonight. Hopefully all of you will join my page and enjoy the recipes with me.

I'm starting with a fall favorite of many: PUMPKIN MUFFINS

I pinned this awhile back and decided that now was the time to try it. I've changed it up a little bit so here's the recipe: (I got the orginal recipe from and just tweaked the recipe by using a spice cake mix instead of a yellow Duncan Hines mix)

1 Betty Crocker Spice cake mix
1 15 oz. can great value pumpkin puree 
Mix together with a hand mixer or stand mixer. Batter will be quite thick. Then spoon into your muffin tins of choice, mine in this case were fall shaped, with leaves and pumpkins. Bake at 350*F for 20-25 minutes. Glaze or frost with your preference of frosting or glaze. 

I think they turned out wonderful and moist!
