“This is what I know about improving your life.  You can’t improve it from a depressed state you have to find the slightest little bit of happiness emanating from whatever you can.  I always say if you can’t find anything to be happy about to fill you with real joy, close your eyes and consider for a moment your breath.  You still have it.  You’re here right now.  Let that fill you up and build from there.” -Oprah Life Class #10

Or if you are like me you start cooking or baking to make you happy.  When I cook I go into my zen place.  It is different for everyone, but when I cook I zone out and just enjoy what I am doing.  Any true foodie I bet would feel the same.

This recipe was given to me when I went to my cooking group last Wednesday.  They are SO amazingly good!!

Crab n' Cheese Spirals
2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
2 Cups Chopped Imitation Crab Meat or real Crab Meat
1 Can (4 1/2 oz) Chopped Ripe Olives
1/4 Cup Minced Chives
3 Tubes (8oz each) Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
3/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
3/4 Cup shredded Parmesan Cheese

**Look for the Crescent Rolls that come in a sheet.  You don't want the kind that is perforated.  It will say "sheet" on the outside of the package**

*In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, crab, olives, and chives.  Unroll on tube of crescent dough into one long rectangle; seal seams and perforations.  If you have the sheet then you will not have to do this.

*Spread with 1 cup cream cheese mixture;  sprinkle with 1/4 cup of each cheese.  Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side;  pinch seam to seal.

*Using a serrated knife, cut into 10 slices;  place cut side down on a greased baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining crescent dough, cream cheese mixture and cheeses.

*Bake at 375 for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.
Yield: 2 1/2 dozen
