He works all day (usually outside on the hottest days or up on a roof in the coldest) and doesn’t always stop to eat anything nutritious, so dinners at night aren’t about the blog, they are about feeding him well to make up for the long day.

In the morning, neither of us often stop for breakfast, but he has been guilty of falling for the buy one get one free Entenmann’s cheese danish from time to time. Ever wanted to know why you don’t let your other half go to the market alone when your the one that does the cooking? Yeah, that’s why.

So here’s a much more cost efficient semi-home made version of cheese danish that you can whip up in a few minutes and have ready and fresh every day. Hopefully this will prevent drive-by snacking at your local Quickie Mart.

These quick and simple cheese danish were perfect. I was able to use up some Pillsbury crescent dough that I knew I bought for some reason. They are fairly easy to adapt to any taste, by adding berries, lemon or apples on the inside or on top while cooking. I only used one tube of dough, making four danishes, knowing we wouldn’t eat them quickly. But if you are in a pinch and need to wow those unexpected guests, these would go a long way with minimum effort.
