Friday Foto Friends!
A sunrise one morning last week.
And the glow from a sunset.
I have been attempting to make yeast rolls by hand as my mother always did. At a Christmas party, we got into a discussion about the techniques of making bread and the pros and cons of stand mixers. One of the ladies said she uses her Kitchen Aid every day and it was her opinion that I should have one. So, after looking into it, I decided to go ahead and make the plunge since I do like to bake. I have always relied on my little Hamilton Beach hand mixer which I received 46 years ago in one of my wedding showers. It still works, but it does have to really chug hard sometimes!
Here is my new mixer kneading for me.
My first attempt at cinnamon rolls.
They were good, just not as pretty as I would have liked.
I made them again and did much better.
I stayed busy yesterday getting a lot of filing done, organizing for upcoming tax time, and now I'm trying a recipe for bread pudding made with leftover cinnamon rolls. Really, DH and I can't eat all those and we won't be able to eat all the bread pudding either, but I'm having fun experimenting!
