Broccoli Casserole

I love this dish because it's easy and I just love Ritz crackers! I googled and found Paula Dean's recipe. Works for me!

  • 2 10oz bags of frozen chopped broccoli florets, cooked & drained (I used slightly bigger because I couldn't find 10oz bags)
  • 1 (10.75oz) can of condensed cream of mushrooms
  • 1 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 2 cups crushed Ritz crackers
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • Pinch of salt & pepper


Preheat oven at 350°. Spray a 13x9 baking dish with non stick spray. 

Combine everything except cheese

Fold in cheese


Pour into pan 

Crushed Ritz crackers. This is how I do it :)

Combine crackers with melted butter

Layer on top of broccoli

Bake for 35 minutes

Cinnamon rolls

I've had a sweet tooth since my first pregnancy and it seems to be worse during all my pregnancies... 

I should be more strict with my diet but I'm guilty of using my pregnancy to eat all the yummy foods I try to stay away from when not pregnant. I did say try, right? We all need to indulge once in awhile too!

I got the recipe here. Next time, I will use less white sugar because even though I have a sweet tooth, I thought it was waaaaay too sweet. 


1 can of crescent rolls
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon 


Preheat oven at 350°

Melt half the butter (half stick) in a pie pan
Add the brown sugar and stir 

Roll the crescent roll out and pinch seams to close

Use the other half of butter and spread on crescent roll 

Mix cinnamon and white sugar and sprinkle on crescent roll. 

Roll it up and cut into 8 slices

Place in pie pan and sprinkle with left over sugar/cinnamon mixture

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. 


1 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsp heavy cream (or milk and 1 tbsp butter)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients until smooth

MILK/BUTTER: melt butter and milk first then add to powdered sugar and add vanilla. Add more milk to thin if needed. 

Add glaze to rolls

I thought it was yummy but soooooooo sweet. Less sugar next time!
