Rich Tomato Soup

One night, it was cold, and I just wanted some soup. But I was kind of tired of just plain tomato soup, so I created my own recipe to enhance the deliciousness of basic tomato soup. Absolutely amazing and warming!

Sad panda, though, I didn't take any pictures because this was before I started blogging consistently. So until I make it again, no pictures. Don't worry though, it's still great!

Mozzarella-Pesto Wonton Rolls

I found this the same night I was looking for a tomato soup recipe. I did mine a bit different, but as always, they were amazing. I don't have many pictures, but when I make these again, I will include detailed directional photos.  I'm going to make this blog short, because it's probably my 5th one of the day, and it's getting late.

A block of Mozzarella cheese, cut into little strips
A jar of Pesto (I bought mine a Homeland for about $3)
Wonton wrappers (mine are small, but you can buy and make them larger, which is probably a bit less tedious than the small ones)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. I would advise to set up a little wonton making station to make this quicker. You will want to place the wontons in a diamond shape from your perspective. Also, one more tip, is when you're folding the wonton wrapper, use a bit of oil from the pesto to close it. Wonton wrappers are sealed best with moisture. 

3. Place a strip of cheese onto the wrapper, then spread a small spoonful on the top of the cheese. Fold the wrapper over like you would fold a Subway sandwich paper, or a t-shirt: Right corner, left corner, the top corner, and roll.

4. Place these on a GREASED baking sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes, then flip them over and bake another

5. Don't panic, the cheese will stick some. That is why it needs to be a GREASED baking sheet. After you take these out of the oven, I advise placing them on a paper towel lined plate to drain some of the excess oil. Voila. Delicious mozzarella rolls for your tomato soup!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle! I've been craving these for days. I came across a pretty delicious recipe at AllRecipes and decided to make them since I haven't baked sweets in quite a while.

**Also, I'm proud to brag about my kitchenware I got for Christmas: A set of 3 jellyroll pans, and a set of 3 cooling racks! Yippee!**
