Cinnamon Rolls

Warning: This is one of those recipes. You know the kind that tells you to knead the dough until it "feels right" and refuses to specify the exact amount of each ingredient? So, I just want to apologize up front.

BUT, I will try my very best to estimate (roughly) the amounts, and you will be happy to know that the recipe for the dough is very nicely laid out in a previous post and can be used to make beignets as well!

Strand of Memories

If you're looking for a whimsical way to display your favorite pictures, all you need is some string and an empty window!

If you've ever seen Disney's Princess & The Frog or celebrated Mardi Gras with all the traditional New Orleans' treats, then you'll know exactly what a beignet is. For those of you who are still unaware--it's like a sugary powdered donut square. (Craving one yet?) Well, beignets don't have to just be for once a year on Mardi Gras or when you happen to be in the Big Easy, you can easily make them right at home!

And the best part is, this recipe is 2 for the price of 1! It makes a BOATLOAD of dough, so you are easily able to make a giant batch of beignets with half and save the other half for a dozen homemade cinnamon rolls. Let's get baking!

Sweater Bow

Oh sweaters... I'm sorry but I just can't stop posting about them. Attribute it to the cold weather or the 80s and 90s style comebacks, or maybe just JK's over abundance of sweaters... whatever the reason, it's sweater season on the blog.

Well, I've got yet another use for your rejected, stolen* or thrift-store sweaters--adding a sweetly feminine touch with a silky bow. So, grab an extra sweater you want to revamp (mine's from Jameson's closet that accidentally shrunk in the wash--before we were married mine you, as I would never do such a thing to cashmere!) and let's go!
