We are from central Indiana. In the Indianapolis area there is a restaurant that serves these yeast dough stuffed rolls called Kilotchies. They are delicious, but usually they cost $1.50+ for one roll, so they can get expensive.

I set out to figure it out...well it's super easy and super yummy! They are simple to make and easily can be changed depending on your preferences.

Since I came up with a knock off recipe my version is called a "Kilotchkie" with an extra "k" in there for Kara. I made these for dinner last night and the Hubby said they were great.

12 Frozen yeast rolls
Ham (2 pieces)
Turkey (2-4 pieces)
Cheese (4 slices)
Bacon (3 slices)

You will need to set out your yeast rolls to rise ahead of time. Once they have risen you need to preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Pre-cut and arrange all your filling choices. I cut all my ingredients ahead of time to make assembly easy on myself. 

Take a roll and stretch it out and place it in your palm or the work surface. Layer in your ingredients and then fold the roll back up into a ball. It may not look like you are putting much filling in each roll, but you don't want to over fill it or you wont get a good seal on the roll. You want to make sure that you pinch the edges together. We do not want the cheese melting out!

Place back on your baking sheet. 

Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown. Let them rest for a few minutes in order to avoid burning your mouth!

While I was making these for dinner I also made a batch of homemade chips! These couldn't be any easier. I slice a large potato using my mandolin. 

I then fry them in vegetable oil until they are golden brown. Put them on a paper towel to get off excess oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. They are simple and delicious!

The best thing about the kilotchkies are that they can be changed up easily to fit people's preferences. I usually make club ones, but I have made pizza ones with pepperoni, just ham and cheese, etc. The possibilities are endless. What you want to avoid is really wet fillings, but be creative!

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.

We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 

The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
