I am in LOVE with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. That’s not a paid endorsement – we just really, really love them in our house. I make them as rolls for dinner, wrap them with turkey and cheese for lunches (that’s the only way Jordan will eat turkey and cheese, BTW). I also love making breakfast foods with them. They’re so versatile, and the end result is a portable snack that’s perfect for hectic mornings and on the go.
