On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Friday Foto Friends

Linking up today with Debbie at Breathing in Grace for 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!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  4. I believe I can smell those cinnamon rolls baking! My oldest son had a breadmaking machine. I have never made yeast bread.

  5. Oooh, I want some of those rolls!!! They look so good! I have one of those mixers, but I never have attempted to knead bread with it. I am still not convinced that I like this mixer better than my old Hamilton Beach or Sunbeam mixer...but I keep trying. Maybe I'll try the bread hook thing and see if I can do that. Thanks for the inspiration!! The bread pudding sounds delish too!

  6. I have had my Kitchen Aid mixer for nearly 30 years. I love it and can't imagine not having it. I also have several of the attachments for it...pasta maker, meat grinder. Love it.

  8. Oh- I love my Kitchen Maid. I have had the commercial one for at least 20 years and use it all the time. It is a work horse! You will get a lot of years of use out of it, Connie. Matter of fact, I am pretty sure mine will outlive me. lol

    Hope you have a great weekend. xo Diana

  9. I've always wanted a Kitchen Aid. Your yeast rolls look so good. My hand mixer is old too but still works. I'm just so bad with new kitchen gadgets and I wonder if I'd end up using a Kitchen Aid if I got it. I have a brand new food processor that I've never used!

  10. So glad you got a KitchenAid mixer. I love mine! My mom (back in the day) worked all week and then every Saturday morning made cinnamon rolls (quite the overachiever). I too made them for the first time in October and they were a huge hit. I don't dare make them and have them sitting around here begging me to snitch yet another bite. Aren't they delicious!! Have fun with your mixer. :-)
