For a few years I let the blue baby sit out on the counter top looking pretty. But eventually I put it away in a cupboard, and felt like a failure. But ever so slowly I brought it back out and gave it, and me, another chance. The main thing I've used it for in the last few years is pizza dough. I've become comfortable with that. But for some reason this week I decided to give homemade rolls a try. This was my first attempt (on my own, I've helped my Mom before) and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The old girl has held up well, and I was able to make a decent batch of rolls earlier in the week. It has still been a bit cold here so I made ham and potato soup (with my left over Easter ham) and rolls on Thursday.
And this afternoon I made cinnamon rolls. Both were quite tasty.
I went to my favorite food blogger for my recipes. If you haven't heard of Melanie from My Kitchen Cafe, then let me introduce you to her. I don't know her in real life, (but if I did I'm sure we'd be friends) but I'm a big fan of her recipes. For the cinnamon rolls I used this recipe, and for the dinner rolls I used this one. They were both quite easy to follow and will be making repeat appearances at my house.
If only I felt the need to suddenly use my treadmill in the same fashion. Someday oh, someday. Maybe tomorrow since I've filled up on Cinnamon Rolls today.
