Bake For The Cure Baking Contest! Part 6-Cinnamon Rolls!!

Wow, the final recipe for the Bake For The Cure baking contest! Before I share our last recipe, I want to thank ACH Food Companies for letting me participate. I have really enjoyed being a part of this great contest.

As our final recipe, I decided to bake Cinnamon Rolls. Personally I love cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and as a snack during the day. They're the perfect sweet treat! And this recipe is one of my favorites:

Cinnamon Rolls

1/4 oz. package Fleischmann's Rapid Rise Yeast
1/2 cup Warm Water
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Warm Milk
1/3 cup Butter
1 tspn. Salt
1 Egg
3 1/2-4 cups Flour

1/2 cup melted Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
3/4 cup Raisins, Walnuts or Pecans (optional)

4 tablespoons Butter
2 cups Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3-6 tablespoons Hot Water

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl, mix milk, sugar, butter, salt and eggs. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture.  Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5-10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl and let rise until doubled (about 1 1/2-2 hours).
When doubled, punch down dough. Roll out on floured surface into a 15x9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough. Mix sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over buttered dough. (Sprinkle with walnuts, pecans or raisins if desired). Beginning at 15-inch side, roll up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12-15 slices. Coat bottom of 13x9 baking pan with melted butter, and sprinkle with sugar.  Place cinnamon roll slices closely together in pan, and let rise until dough is doubled (about 45 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees or until nicely browned.
Meanwhile, mix butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until glaze reaches desired consistency. When rolls are done, cool for 10 minutes. Spread glaze over cooled rolls.

Ahhh, homemade Cinnamon Rolls=delicious!

Let me tell you, this recipe may require a little more time and effort than what you'd like, but the cinnamon rolls are definitely worth it!!! These are the absolute BEST cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted! Even without the added nuts, these are great! Very rich, sweet and can't get enough of them!

And now, for the last time...I need your help with comments! Please neighbors, we are almost at the finish, and you all have been such a help already. Please leave a comment! Even just saying they look yummy would be a huge help to me!

I love cinnamon rolls! For a quick breakfast treat, you can prepare the night before and let it do it's final rise in the fridge overnight. Cover with lightly greased saran wrap. In the morning just pop'em in the oven and continue as directed.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
