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.

Wassail - Warm Drink

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul. This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.

For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot: 64 ounces apple juice 64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing) 3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.

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…
