Cheat Day Recipes.... Crescent Roll Edition
I never though I was a big carb person- other than pasta- until I started a low carb diet. It sort of just slapped me in the face. One of my favorite things is crescent rolls. Last year (probably where the extra 20 lbs came from), I really became obsessed with these little things. It was definitely a staple for the last year. I have a million recipes that I could share with these little delicious things, but I could only find 2 different pictures, so I will share two instead of a million.
