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 for 12-15 min.

Cinnamon Rolls
Make white roll dough in bread machine.
Pour dough out onto a lightly oiled (coconut oil) surface. Press dough into a rectangular shape about 24” x 12” and about 1 inch thick. Brush dough with coconut oil.

In a small dish, mix together:
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
½ cup raisins
½ cup walnuts (chopped/crushed small)

Spread cinnamon/sugar mixture over the dough rectangle.
Gently roll dough along the longest edge and cut out 1 inch thick rolls using floss. Place unbaked rolls almost touching into oiled baking dish and drizzle with 1-2 Tbsp melted margarine. Allow rolls to rise for 30-60 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until browned on tops.
Drizzle (while hot or after cooling) with icing.

2 cups powdered sugar
¼ tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp coconut/almond milk

I should have taken better photos of these beauties, but here are some with my phone camera. They are delicious.

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.

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.

- 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 …
