Oh the joy of Cinnamon Rolls!

yep this is how dough begins. Who would have thought it!
Yep it was really hot and I had to wait almost an hour to but the yeast in.
Dough and now we wait. I let it rise like 2 times and made the rolls the following day. I did this on Friday and baked them Saturday Night.
Wrong order but this is after I rolled the dough with the cinnamon and sugar inside
rolling the dough
yummy rolls
Yummy icing I kinda did use the maple flavoring I just used vanilla extract. Side note I did use almond extract too but it didn't work out.. I split the icing up and added vanilla to one and almond to the other. The almond was too strong and it tasted weird so vanilla it is.

Ok SO I MADE CINNAMON ROLLS FROM SCRATCH!!!!!!!! They turned out great and everyone loved them. Bonus!!! I changed it a little but not too much. Ok I saw the recipe on Bakeralla, but she got it from Pioneer Women.

cinnamon sugar marshmallows
Soooooo I like ran out of chocolate and used some milk chocolate chips I had leftover from cookies I made. Hey it worked I think. I ate them and don't even remember which puff those chips were in.
Yeah I had never worked with dough before it was not sticking and then it got sticky what the heck. Oh Well you live and you learn.
Ok Ok some of them are kinda ugly but they were good I promise

Ok I got this one from my book
It was simple enough

This was so good. I shared with a coworker and her daughter now I think they are going to try and make this dish.

This weekend cooked! Yea! I followed a recipe from one of my cookbooks( It's a pasta book) I love pasta. Also I did a puff pastry s more. I got the recipe from cook teen's blog. It was awesome. I might use a different chocolate next time. I think I will try her other s more recipes too. All in all I think everything came out well. Ok Ok it may not have looked pretty but it taste pretty good. Ahhhhhhhh next cinnamon rolls from bakerella's blog which she got out of pioneer women cook book.

Lady Rattler Victory!!!!

So on Saturday I woke my self up and got ready to attend the game day on campus. There was a Softball game at 12:00pm a tennis match at 2:00pm and the orange and green game at 5:00pm.
The Softball team played Winston Salem. We won of course. I was too tired to go to the tennis game, I went to my grandma 's house instead and hung out with my aunt for a little while. Then I went to the orange and green game. Well needless to say I was very tired that day and then I started doing my two strand twist at about 10:00pm and didn't finish until about 2:00 that morning. I was so tired in church that day yes I did take a nap later.
