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.

Honey Ginger Chex Mix

This is my new favorite chex mix recipe. It turned out delicious...just the perfect amount of sweet and still a bit healthy.

The recipe came from the back of the Honey Nut Chex cereal box and I made a few alterations to work with the ingredients that I had and wanted to include.

In a large microwaveable bowl mix together:
6 cups Honey Nut Chex
1 cup dried banana chips
1-2 cups almonds (I used sliced almonds)

In a small microwaveable bowl, combine and heat uncovered for 1-2 minutes or until boiling:
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine (I used Smart Balance Light)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 tsp Ginger

Pour Honey mixture over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered for 4 minutes, stirring and scraping the sides every minute.

1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup cranberries or raisins

Microwave for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute.
Spread out onto wax paper and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
After mine cooled, I added dark chocolate c…
