So, Thursday we had a girls night at my house!  A few girls from my college sorority, who now live in Columbus,  came over for drinks and  holiday treats!  We had a great time!!


  • 1 round of brie
  • 1/2 c. raspberry jam
  • 1/3 c. pecans
  • 1 pillsbury cresent roll reduced fat

Roll out the cresent rolls and set brie on top.  Cover brie with nuts and jam.  Bake at 350 until roll is golden brown and brie is melty.


We had spinach artichoke dip as well as chips and salsa!

We also made these cookies look great!

For lunch I made two different paninis – one sweet and the other savory, both warm and gooey 🙂

BPA Panini or Brie Pepper Arugula Panini

  • 2 slices Trader Joes Sprouted Wheat bread sprayed with a little olive oil spray
  • 2 very thin slices of brie cheese fresh from a wheel or wedge
  • 2 small sweet peppers- sliced – I love the orange, red and yellow ones at Costco!!
  • a few pieces of fresh arugula

Place the bread on the panini maker and add cheese, peppers and arugula.  Close panini maker and wait…patiently until it is ooey gooey golden brown!

The other panini I made was sweet!

PBP or Peanut Butter Banana Panini

  • 2 slices of Trader Joe’s Sprouted Wheat bread
  • 1 T peanut butter or PB flax spread which I often use
  • 1/2 ripe banana – sliced thin and long
  • Peach Jam (homemade 🙂 for dipping

Throw everything on the panini maker and wait.  I used the jam for a little dipping sauce!  I can’t wait to make these some Sunday more for a brunch with friends!!  Who wants to come? 🙂
