The entire Internet is freaking out about the Cronut- the confectionary result of some hot, doughy copulation between a croissant and a donut. There’s apparently only one bakery selling them and they sell out within 30 minutes of opening, but fear not, Internet. Here’s a nifty little lifehack that lets you make these babies at home! You’re welcome. Now ya’ll can get over the whole cronut thing.
1 package Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers in Honey Butter flavor
Carefully cut out the centers of the biscuits. Set centers aside if you want to make cronut holes. Bake cronuts at 350° for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
1 cup confectioner’ s sugar
1 Tbsp. milk (I used Silk Vanilla Almond Milk)
½ tsp. vanilla extract
Liquid food coloring
White candy pearls (optional)
Stir sugar, milk and vanilla extract until sugar is completely dissolved. Add food coloring and stir until desired color is achieved. Use immediately to glaze cronuts. Sprinkle on some candy pearls. Bam. Cronut.
For Cronut Holes: I baked the holes for about 6 minutes. Once mostly cooled, I pulled them in half and dipped them into the glaze creating a sort of sandwich or macaron (Cronutron? Yes. It’s a tasty transformer).

If you’re a Lazy Girl like me, you probably have no clean dishes or forks. This can pose a problem when you’re craving pasta. Luckily, I have a solution that doesn’t involve cleaning!
You will need:
1) Boil water.
2) Throw in some noodles and let them boil until they look more like noodles than sticks.
3) Heat up the sauce.
4) Mix sauce and noodles together.
5) Put them in taco shells and call it a Mexican Italian fusion.

When was the last time you had a bagel pizza? The answer should be, “5 minutes ago” or, “I’m eating one right now.” Otherwise something is wrong. SO preheat that oven to 350 ° and get ready for your tastebuds to be begging on their knees.
You Will Need:
Some spaghetti sauce
1) Did you preheat the oven yet? I’ll wait.
2) Spread some sauce on both halves of your bagel.
3) Sprinkle some cheese on that sauce. Little more. More. Good.
4) I found leftover turkey meatballs in my fridge. Aww Yeah! But you can put whatever you want on top. Or just more cheese.
5) Place those puppies on a cookie sheet and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes.
6) Enjoy with a glass of Cab Sauv because we are classy bitches.

This is the first recipe in what I hope will be a series of Lazy Girl Recipes. It was kind of inspired by Pierre Herme’s Ketchup Macarons.
Today, I’m going to be “making” (I use that term loosely) Potato Chip & Ketchup Macarons. Macarons are 90% technique and skill (words not in the Lazy Girl’s vocabulary) and 10% ingredients.
These tasty, salty, snack-ready macarons are 100% ingredients and require absolutely no skill at all.
You Will Need:
1 bag of potato chips, any flavor, shape or style
1 bottle of ketchup, preferably a squeeze bottle
1) Lay out some potato chips on a plate.
2) Put some ketchup in the middle of the chips.
3) Top with another potato chip.
4) Eat your Potato Chip & Ketchup Macarons in your underwear while flipping between Real Housewives of Wherever and a Slap Chop infomercial because you can’t decide if the Slap Chop guy is sexy. Is he? He kind of is. Nah.
