Baking is like Fishing…

…in that a bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work. Wouldn’t that depend on how avid a fishing enthusiast you are? I really like baking, so I’m still glad that I tried this recipe. I thought it was nearly full-on blech but my daughter gave it the thumbs up and is already finished with pinwheel #2.

I fully blame the cook, not the recipe. Note the original recipe’s photo on top, mine on the bottom:

The only thing I changed in the recipe was to use cheddar cheese instead of Swiss. I just think they needed to bake longer than 9 minutes, perhaps. These Ham and Cheese Pinwheels are short on effort and have an even shorter list of ingredients:

1 can of flaky crescent rolls

Grated cheddar cheese

Sliced ham (I used the Black Forrest ham from Trader Joe’s)

cream cheese and dijon mustard

Here’s the original recipe:  http://www.bunsinmyoven.com/2013/12/27/ham-and-cheese-pinwheels/

Here’s what I’d like to try soon, using home made bread dough:

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
