Menu planning for me has been a rotating process. In the past I have preferred making a simple list of 14 dinners. I would purchase all the ingredients needed for them and then choose each day what I felt like cooking. This worked well for many years. Times change h read more
These are sooo good! My son even asked me to make them instead of a Birthday cake. You really have to go by touch when adding the flour, so pay attention.
They are worth the effort I promise you!
Cinnamon Rolls…So soft and warm and delicious! I like to spread the frosting on while they are still warm (not hot) so it melts a little bit. Only half my family likes raisins, so I make the pan half and half. Two 9×13 pans fit in my oven quite nicely together so I often double the recipe.

I have taken these lovely muffins to many gatherings and received rave reviews each time. I’ve even tried them with 1/2 wheat flour. Either way they are delicious! Continue reading

I made the tuft of hair with frosting. Continue reading
