Jalapeno Poppers

I thought this article was interesting -- and it made me think of Katie and Leslie. Let me know if you try any.

Sarah's Cinnamin Rolls

Therese and I made these last week and they were so yummy:)
Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
courtesy Sandra Lee

1 loaf frozen white bread dough, thawed in refrigerator
Flour, for dusting surface
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2/3 stick butter, softened
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 15 by 7-inch rectangle. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. Spread 2/3 cup softened butter over dough and then evenly sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Starting at the long edge, roll up dough as for a jelly roll. Cut roll into 16 slices and then set aside in a warm place and allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Divide rolls among 2 lightly buttered round baking pans. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top. While the rolls are baking, combine the icing ingredients with an electric mixer until fluffy. Frost the warm rolls with the icing. Serve warm.


Kate, Is your scone recipe posted on here? I couldn't find it? Do you bring your butter to room temperature first?

Lenten Meatless Meals

We often eat non-meat meals a couple of times a week, but for some reason when there are specific days that I need to make sure we eat meatless meals, it seems to add to the pressure. What are some of your favorite meatless meals?
I found Butternut Squash Ravioli yesterday, so I think I will do that with caramelized onions (maybe even a sprinkling of blue cheese) and a salad.

Cheeseburger Bread

I am making this for dinner tonight --
I think my kids are going to love it! I, of course, had to add relish to it. (My kids love pickles on their cheeseburgers.) Seemed like fun and something very different.

Weekend IN

We are looking at a snowstorm that could dump 2 feet of snow on us AND it is Super Bowl Weekend. I think we are looking at some time inside, by the fire... so what warm and cozy recipes would you make for this family time?
