Fuel Your Creativity with Tanya Eavenson

Today, our creativity comes from baking, a place where I have no creativity whatsoever. Tanya’s recipes look easy enough that even I could attempt them. 🙂

Being Creative Is Easy When Cooking With Kids and Canned Biscuits! An almost Perfect Mix!

When Joselyn asked me to write a post about being creative, I couldn’t think of anything except for my writing. But then it came to me. I love to cook with my kids, and when you cook with kids, your food is a new creation! =)

Almost every time we go to the grocery store, I let the kids pick out their favorite canned biscuits. One child likes flaky, one wants buttery, and the other—you guessed it, plain. But no matter what type they pick, their snacks come out to perfection. Almost.

Here are the kid’s favorite recipes. Have fun and enjoy!

Recipe #1   Hot Dog rolls


  • Canned biscuits
  • Hot Dogs
  • Fork
  • Cooking spray
  • Cooking Sheet


  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees
  • Separate biscuits and roll them flat.
  • Cut Hot Dogs in half and place each half on a rolled out biscuit.
  • Fold the biscuit over the hotdog.
  • Seal dough by pressing the fork along the edges.
  • Place the rolls on the greased cookie sheet and bake until golden brown.


Recipe #2   Mini Pizza


  • Canned biscuits
  • Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Pizza sauce
  • Cooking spray
  • Cooking Sheet


  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees
  • Separate biscuits and roll them out.
  • Spread pizza sauce on the rolled out biscuits.
  • Add cheese, then the pepperoni slices.
  • Place mini pizzas on the greased cook sheet and cook until cheese is melted and the edges are golden brown.

Blurb for Unconditional:

 He will fight for her at any cost…

Elizabeth Roberts can’t remember her past, and the present is too painful. She turns to nightclubs and drinking to forget her infant daughter’s death, her husband’s affair.

When his wife’s coma wiped out the memory of their marriage, Chris Roberts found comfort elsewhere. He can’t erase his betrayal, but with God’s help he’s determined to fight for Elizabeth at any cost.

She wants to forget. He wants to save his marriage. Can they trust God with their future and find a love that’s unconditional?

  1. Joselyn, love your blog. I’m sending this one on to my daughters.
    Tanya, thanks for the cooking ideas. Your book cover is beautiful. Good luck with sales.


    1. Thanks, Marsha! I’m having a lot of fun with these posts.


  2. These sound like fun! I’ll have to remember these treats for when my grandkids get old enough to cook with me!


    1. Don’t they sound easy? I was going to try one for supper, then realized we don’t have any biscuits. I’ll be adding them to the grocery list.
