Doritos and crescents, and church ladies...OH MY!

I'm not sure I've made a recipe that calls for both Doritos and crescent rolls since college. At our house it's usually brown rice, couscous, chicken and veggies, etc. Doritos? Seriously? Well, in accordance with my plan to cook my way through St. Mary's, I had to oblige. This recipe was called Quick Crescent Roll Taco Pie. MMMMM.... I couldn't bear to use full-fat ingredients, so I bowed to the 'reduced fat' gods and used reduced fat crescent rolls, 93% lean organic beef, and BAKED Doritos! My trusty sous chef, Avery, did the Dorito crushing and crescent roll patting for me. The dish was tasty, although very dense, and seemed to have been consumed by one and all in the house. It's not a dish that presents itself in a gourmet looking fashion, and it's even a bit difficult to photograph, but we documented it anyway!

I've decided that the Maryville Hy-Vee is probably going to issue a 'cake mix APB' for me after I purchased 12, yes 12, cake mixes today! I like to use the boxed mixes as bases and then add all kinds of ooey gooey favos! Today I'm working on baking a three-layer, fondant covered birthday cake. Cupcakes and cookies are my passion, but every now-and-then I do a big cake as a favor, present, etc. for people I love. Hopefully it'll turn out great! I'll let you know how it goes!

Tonight's dinner is TBA...stay posted. Donning my apron now!

Good eats,

  1. holy crap that looks like something that was tweaked from one of my retro cookbooks. the less edible it looks, the more likely they were to eat it back then!
