Easy Chocolate Croissants

This is another one that I made for the party.....I ate about......10 yesterday. They aren't real croissants but for a quick fix they work in a pinch.

  • 1 8-count tube refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375. Place about 10 chocolate chips on the bottom third of each triangle and roll the dough up around the chocolate. Transfer rolls to a baking sheet. (lined with parchment for easy cleanup) and bake for 12-14 minutes until brown. Serve warm or at room temp. Topped with powdered sugar if desired. An idea a fellow pregnant woman shared with me.


Spanish Omelet with Potatoes and Chorizo

This is a great Real Simple recipe that I found. It was a hit at the morning mommy/baby playgroup I hosted.

  • 1 Tbsp. EVOO
  • 2 ounces chorizo (sliced and cut into half moon shape)
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 3/4 cup flat leaf parsley (chopped)
  • 10 large eggs
  • 3/4 lb. red potatoes diced
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar
  • salt and pepper

Heat over to 400 degrees. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in over medium heat skillet. Add onion and cook 5 minutes. Add chorizo, potatoes, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper and cook covered stirring occasionally until potatoes are tender (a little less than 10 minutes). Stir in parsley. Pour eggs into skillet and stir to distribute the ingredients. Sprinkle with cheese. Transfer to over and cook for 15 minutes or until puffed and brown around the edges.
