Crescent Taco Ring

Taco seasoned beef is wrapped into a fun crescent roll ring.


Pampered Chef Crescent Taco Ring



Back in 2014, I tried my hand at being a Pampered Chef consultant. Though I LOVE the products and recipes, I just was not cut out for asking people to host parties. Many of Pampered Chef's cookware products and kitchen gadgets are used in my kitchen and I will always be looking at their recipes for inspiration and a delicious quick meal.


That is exactly what this recipe is; quick, easy and delicious. I first tasted this recipe at a PC team meeting. I really enjoyed it and knew that the kids and hubby would love it as well. Once the meat is cooked and crescent rolls are spread out, this recipe comes together in a snap. Not only does it taste good, it's also a pretty snazzy looking dish. I love how the taco flavoured ground beef peeks through between the crescent roll. Why not try this super fun twist on taco night.

adapted from The Pampered Chef


1 lb ground beef

1 packet taco seasoning

1 1/4 C shredded marble cheddar cheese, divided

2 Tbs water

2 tubes of crescent rolls (8 count)

lettuce, olives, marble cheddar and sour cream, for garnish


In a large skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink; about 7-9 minutes. Drain and stir in taco seasoning, 1 C cheese and water. Set aside.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll the crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Arrange crescent rolls in a circle (on a pizza stone, or cookie sheet), with wide ends overlapping in the center and narrow ends toward the outside.


Scoop meat mixture onto widest part of the circle. Bring narrow ends over the filling and carefully tuck under dough at the center of the circle. (The filling will not be completely covered)


Bake for 20-25 minutes; until dough is golden brown. Remove from oven and let set 5-10 minutes.


Shred the lettuce and chop the olives. Place lettuce in the center of the ring and sprinkle with remaining marble cheddar, olives and top with a dollop of sour cream.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
