Ingredients 1 tube of crescent rolls 3 chicken breasts ½ cup butter (1 stick) ⅔ cup flour 2 cups milk 2 cups chicken broth ½ yellow onion 2 cups carrots (about 4, sliced) 2 cups frozen peas 0live oil garlic powder salt & pepper The beauty of this chicken pot pie is that is really is made from scratch — except the crust of course.

Margherita Pizza Pockets

It’s like a Hot Pocket, but infinitely better. Make multiple and share, or store them in your fridge or freezer and pop in the microwave to reheat. Unroll one sheet of crescent roll dough.

TMS Recipes: On a crescent roll

One of the first cooking duties entrusted to me was preparing the crescent rolls. It’s a simple task, but a satisfying one — hearing that punctuated “pop!” as the cardboard tube opens, methodically rolling each triangle of dough from base to point and, in less time than it takes to set the table, opening the oven to find a baking sheet full of fluffy, golden half-moons. It’s likely you’ve passed them around the table at Thanksgiving dinner or scarfed them down at elementary school birthday parties as pigs in a blanket, the American hors d’oeuvres classic. They’re quick, familiar,...
