make these

I feel like it's been a little while since I've pretended this was a cooking blog, so I present to you a few recipes I've been making over and over again lately:

granola bars
I can throw these together in less than 10 minutes, and then I have a snack for the rest of the week. WIN. I always throw in almonds, and swapping normal chocolate chips for white was really delicious.

This is my favorite roll recipe so far. Today is my 4th time making them, and they've been really, really good and soft and delicious every time (knock on wood, they're currently rising). A couple of things I do differently because I am lazy: I don't roll the dough out into a circle and slice into triangles, I just do a rectangle with fat strips and roll them up. I'm incapable of making circles of should see my rectangular pizza and lopsided pie crust. I also don't put any butter on them before rolling them up, since that requires getting a bowl dirty to melt butter. Instead, I just take a stick of butter and rub it over the tops when they come out of the oven. Yummmm.

Do you have any favorite recipes you're currently obsessing over?

Yum! I like Mel's granola bar recipe. I think it's probably similar. I made her black bean and sweet potato burritoes and they were really good for dinner and lunch all week. And that is all I can think of. Yum. Rolls.
