A few FO's

I made a few things for the "Be my Valentine" CAL over at Crochetville and wanted to share pics with you.

This first one is a heart doily I made. It was insanely easy to make and I love the way it turned out!

This next one is 2 of the 4 Heart Coasters I plan on making. Again, very easy!

This I tested for Stormy and plan on putting it on top of my hubby's Valentine's Day gift! It was so easy to make!

And last but not least are 2 remote cozy's I created! The blue one I made for my brother for Christmas and just has one pocket, the white one I made for Doug and has 2 pockets. The pattern is my original design and super simple. I will share shortly.

Lemon-Cheese Delights

So the other night I had an idea for a quick, sweet treat and it turned out incredible so I thought I'd share the recipe here. These are super simple to make and only take a few mins to prepare!

1 package refrigerated Crescent Rolls
1 package cream cheese (softened)
1 can lemon pie filling
2 tablespoons white suger (optional)
whipped topping or ice cream (optional)

Pre-heat oven to temp listed on the rolls.
Roll out rolls individually on a greased cookie sheet.
Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese on each roll.
Place a dolop of lemon filling in the middle of each roll.
Roll up rolls and place in pre-heated oven.
Bake approximately 15 mins or until golden brown.
Sprinkle sugar on top (if you like it a little sweeter)
Serve warm with either Whipped Topping or Ice Cream on top.
