Quick Puff Pastry Cinnamon Nut Rolls

I do not like making cinnamon rolls.  They take FOREVER – even the recipes that claim are fast are not fast.  The yeast has to work.  The dough has to rise. The butter has to soften. So, I never make them, but I want to. I know I’m kinda crazy. ;) Then, the other night I was laying in bed and realized I could turn puff pastry into cinnamon rolls. Thus, Puff Pastry Cinnamon Nut Rolls were born!

It’s already rolled out into a rectangle. I don’t have to wait for it to rise.  All I have to do is the fun part of cinnamon rolls.  So that’s what I did.  Except this time, I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®.  I never remember to set butter out to soften, and when I put it in the microwave to soften, I usually melt it.  This is one of the reasons why I love I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® (more…)

Ruby Red Grapefruitade

During the fall and winter down here in Texas, ruby red grapefruit is in season.  I just love the color and taste — that bright red juiciness.  They are deliciously sweet.

One of my favorite things to drink is grapefruit juice.  I usually have a carton in the fridge or when I can buy a huge bag of ruby red grapefruits, I love to make it freshly squeezed.  Everybody else in my family thinks I’m nuts.  They love orange juice, which is fine by me. Nobody ends up stealing my grapefruit juice! (more…)

The Pretty Pintastic Party #30

Welcome to the Pretty Pintastic Party #30!  We love to see what you share!

This week I’ve been so busy.  My teenager is trying out for a Drum Corp for the color guard.  It’s her passion in life.  If she makes it, she’ll spend the summer traveling the country.  I’m excited and scared for her all at the same time.  Then, yesterday was my wedding anniversary – 5 years!  We didn’t get a chance to celebrate yet between him working over time and me taking sick kids to the doctor and attending preschool Thanksgiving parties.  But, he’s taking a week long vacation for Thanksgiving, and I think I’ll surprise him with a visit to his favorite hibachi grill!

Now onto the party!

We think it’s going to be pretty fantastic Pintastic!

Pregnancy Cravings and Morning Sickness

 #SeaBandMamaMorningSicknessRelief

Nate and I have decided we want to add one more little one to our family.  Hopefully, soon I’ll have some news.  But, when I think back on my pregnancies, I remember the morning sickness that lasts forever and the cravings. What kind of crazy cravings did you have during pregnancy?

I had all kinds of intense cravings. I found when I was craving something, even if I was still nauseous from my morning sickness, if I ate what I was craving, I felt so much better.  So, I gave in to most of my cravings.  With my first and second pregnancies, I wanted kosher pickles and apple juice. My husband would find me standing in front of the fridge drinking apple juice right from the bottle.  However, the pickles could not be cold.  I’d only eat them if they were room temperature.
