Homemade Bread SUCCESS!

Mary Katherine and I decided we'd give Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls a try today and they did not disappoint. They are scrumptious, yummy, to die for, melt in your mouth, unbelievable....oh the ooey-gooey madness of these treats! We did in fact even use a tape measure to try to follow the recipe line by line. That was until it was time to add Maple Flavoring, and from the pictures you can tell our icing was a little bit darker than Pioneer Woman's! Our new motto: "more maple=more maddening". I will have to hold Mary Katherine accountable for saying we'd make these at least 4 times this year.

Of course, my kitchen will NEVER be the same, but that is alright, if only the smell will linger. If you haven't tried these I encourage you to do so! Your scales will vote NO don't you dare try these, but put the scales away and enjoy eating these and sharing these wonderful delicacies with friends and family!
And if you are looking for a great cookbook for yourself or to give as a gift, The Pioneer Woman Cooks is a fantastic one, with some of the most beautiful photography and the best stories, as well as some of the best recipes, ever!

I couldn't stop trying the 'breadmaking' with all of the ingredients sitting out, so I tried a Tasty Kitchen recipe for homemade rolls after Mary Katherine left. They turned out well also. They are called Heavenly Yeast Rolls and the recipe for the rolls can be found here.

The wonderful aroma of yeast at work is a special reminder of years long ago when my Grandmother would bake wonderful homemade breads, rolls and biscuits.

We didn't make a New Year's Resolution to learn to 'bake bread' this year, but I think it might just be one of ours after all. Well that and losing weight (ha!). The two just don't seem to 'fit' together, but oh well. Warm fresh breads will hopefully be a staple here and at Mary Katherine's before the end of 2010...stay tuned!
Blessings today and always,
"People need more than bread for their life; they must feed on every word of God."
Matthew 4:4 NLT
