Cinnamon Sugar Bread

We love cinnamon around here, especially when it is in cahoots with sugar... and soft bread right out of the oven. So, here is an alteration to this recipe to make Cinnamon Sugar Bread!


In a large bowl, stir together well:
2 and 3/4 cups flour (all purpose or mix in some whole wheat)
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1 Tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
1-2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

Add and stir:
1 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil

Stir until it resembles dough and then knead the dough until it is smooth. If it is sticking to your hands, add a few pinches of flour. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with a damp cloth and allow to rise for 20 minutes in a warm place.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Punch down dough and place on a baking/cookie sheet. Spread out the dough to achieve a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Brush the top with melted butter or margarine (Smart Balance Light has no dairy) and then sprinkle ample amounts of Cinnamon/sugar all over the top. (Optional: poke all over with a fork to allow some butter/cinnamon/sugar to seep into the bread.) Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until it is just browning around the edges. Slice with a pizza cutter and enjoy warm, store air tight.

Pollo Asado

My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.

Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

White Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls - Bread Machine Dough cycle

I always have assumed that the best white rolls have dairy ingredients, but I tried this recipe for Easter ( I made them into resurrection rolls with a marshmallow in the center) and they turned out delicious. My husband and I both agreed that they would make great cinnamon rolls, so I tried it today and was not disappointed.  My favorite part is that the dough is made in the bread machine. That way, the prep time/active time is cut down, which is a winner for my life.
Here are my two new recipes for White Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls.
White Dinner Rolls (bread machine – dough cycle) Place ingredients into bread machine pan: 1 cup water 2 Tbsp margarine 1 egg 3 ¼ cups unbleached all purpose flour ¼ cup white sugar 1 tsp salt 3 tsp active dry yeast
After dough is done (1.5 hours), pour out of the bread pan and onto clean surface. Divide into rolls and place into greased (coconut oil) pan. Brush tops of rolls with coconut oil (optional).  Let rise in a warm place for 30-45 min. Bake at 375 degrees F…

Swiss Chard anyone?

For the past few weeks I have been getting most of my produce from an organization that buys in bulk to divide between a large number of people within several communities. The name of this organization is Bountiful Baskets. It has been fun because I get a mixture of fruits and veggies, not knowing beforehand what will be in the basket when I pick it up on Saturday morning. This past Saturday, in my basket I found two large bunches of Swiss Chard. I had never seen it before, so I was glad it had a tag on it so I knew what it was. With a few ideas from my sister-in-law, I was able to prepare it as part of dinner. Thanks to bacon and onions, we all liked it.

So, here is what I did:
Cut up raw bacon in 1-2 inch pieces and cook it fully in large skillet.

Add:
- chopped yellow onion (about 1/4 cup or to taste)
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- chopped stems of chard (1 inch pieces)
- salt, seasonings of your choice (not much because the bacon gives it flavor and salt)
Saute on medium heat for about 2 …
