"Pizza Roll Ups"

1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed, 1 lb
1⁄4cup prepared pizza or 1⁄4 cup pasta sauce
1⁄2cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
2 tablespoons finely chopped pepperoni
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Generously coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
Roll dough into a 10 inch square on a floured surface.
Spread pizza or pasta sauce over dough.
Sprinkle all but 2 tbsp mozzarella over the sauce.
Top with pepperoni.
Roll up dough jelly-roll style to enclose filling.
Cut roll crosswise into 10 slices.
Place slices, cut side down on baking sheet.
Brush tops with oil.
Sprinkle with parmesan and remaining mozzarella cheese.
Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Serve immediately.


"Ham and Cream Cheese Roll Ups"

1 slice deli ham
1 tablespoon cream cheese


Spread cream cheese on piece of ham.
Roll ham as you would a roll-up sandwich.


"Banana Oatmeal COOKIES"


1 cup mashed ripe banana
2 cups oatmeal
1⁄2teaspoon vanilla
1⁄4cup applesauce
1⁄3cup raisins
1⁄2teaspoon cinnamon


Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients until moist.
(I use old-fashioned rolled oats, but imagine you could use quick-cook oats instead).
Mixture will be gooey and sticky.
That is normal.
Drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased baking sheet.
Flatten to desired thickness and shape, as cookies WILL NOT spread on baking.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove to wire rack to cool.
