Foodie Friday Turkey Cranberry Wreath Pillsbury Crescents "Spring Celebrations" Get-Together Review

I recently got an email from the Pssst...Network from General Mills, Inc. to host a house party called Pillsbury Crescents "Spring Celebrations" Get-Together. I signed up and I received a free kit which included:

* 4 free Crescent coupons I redeemed these coupons for free Pillsbury Crescents at my grocery store so I could make a recipe with them or one of these yummy recipes the: Easy Veggie Pizza, Bacon Cheese Tartlets or Cherry Cream Coffee Crescent Braid.
* $20 cash card – I used this card at my grocery store to purchase additional
recipe ingredients
* 2 Pillsbury Crescents aprons
* 15 recipe booklets – to share with guests
* 15 product information sheets with coupon – to share with guests
* Allergen fact sheet – That I displayed where my guests could easily see it

I made a recipe with the Pillsbury crescents that I absolutely love which is from Pampered Chef. The Turkey Cranberry Wreath I made didn't really turn out like a wreath, but it was yummy!! I will be making this recipe again which is good since I guess I need the practice, LOL! I loved sharing the recipe with my guests. I will try the other three recipes they suggested above at a later date. My guests and I had a fabulous time and took home a recipe booklet that has a bunch of great recipes in it also. Pillsbury crescents are so versatile and easy to prepare. They make so many great recipes and I love how they taste!

You can also go to the Pillsbury Crescents website to see more recipes and download valuable coupons. For more great Crescent Recipes, you can also sign up for a FREE Email Newsletter & get a FREE Digital Recipe Magazine on the same website. They also have a whole section on there with spring tips.

(Points will overlap in center; do not seal.)
