and I couldn't wait to give them a try! I used the Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies in this taco bake, and not only was it yummy, but it was so easy to put together!
Chipotle Taco Bake adapted from this recipe
1 can reduced fat crescent rolls
1 lb lean ground beef (or turkey)
1 package taco seasoning
1 can Del Monte Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies
8 oz plain non-fat yogurt (or sour cream)
1 1/2 cups shredded 'Fiesta Blend' cheese
1/2-3/4 bag nacho cheese chips (like Doritos), crushed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef in a large skillet. Drain, if needed. Stir in taco seasoning and Del Monte tomatoes, simmer 5-10 minutes. Spray a 9x13 inch casserole dish with cooking spray, and press crescent rolls on the bottom and about 1/2 way up the sides. Press seams to seal. Top crescent roll 'crust' with meat mixture and spread yogurt over meat. Top with cheese and crushed chips. Bake for approx. 30 minutes.
Verdict? Everyone enjoyed this dish, even my kids! It wasn't too spicy My oldest daughter even said she might want this as her birthday dinner. That's high praise around here.

Baked donuts are a favorite around here (b/c I am a mean mama and deprive my children of the store-bought trans-fat laden versions). When they get there first bite of a freshly baked, warm Krispy Kreme, I will most likely lose the "my mom is so awesome she makes us great donuts" status.
Meyer Lemon Baked Donuts adapted from Sweet Mornings Baked Lemon Donuts
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
¾ cup low fat plain yogurt
6 Tbsp meyer lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter, eggs, yogurt, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
Add wet ingredients to the dry and mix to combine.
Fill the donut pan 2/3 full of batter. (I just use a spoon, but some people prefer to pipe it in.)
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from pan and let cool on wire rack.
Top donuts as desired.
Well, enjoy these bright, sunny donuts during this COLD, dreary day! Yes, I bragged too soon about our awesome weather....I actually saw a few snow flakes yesterday, with more in the forecast today!

I live in a small community that has ONE grocery store (no lie), a 'one dollar' store, a hardware store, and a Dollar General. The closest mass-merchandiser is about 35 minutes away. When you have 3 kids and a huge SUV, driving that far to pick up a couple of items is just not feasible. Gas cost too much and, well, I'm not even going to talk about carrying all 3 kids to the store. Sometimes I need to just pop in somewhere local, and grab something quick.
Well, thank goodness, for Dollar General. The one where I live (and I assume they are all pretty much the same?) carries a little bit of everything. Everything from grocery items, school supples, and baby supplies to my favorite P&G brands, all at reasonable prices. Yep, my local Dollar General has saved me many a trip to wally world, not to mention time and money by not having to travel out-of-town.
The best part...they can save you money too! Dollar General accepts P&G brandSAVER coupons, which can save you over $50 dollars! You can find P&G brandSAVER coupons in the Sunday paper. Look for them on 01/27/13 for great offers valid through 2/28/13. Saving time and money is always a good thing in my book. It's like that Swiffer commercial, where the women realize they are all done cleaning and finally have time to read a book, or give themselves a facial! I love those commercials! What would you do if you found yourself with an extra $50 in the budget?!

If you are going to have fried or baked fish, you need some cornbread to go with it! I've started making mine in my cast iron skillet, which I love.
