Want S'more?

I am in Utah on vacation and loving it! I have to say Texas is amazing, I love the people but I couldn't take the heat so I got out of that kitchen.

While on vacation I have been baking some Fast Easy Bread and enjoying the new recipe for the S'more braid! Thanks Jen Cusano, the S'more braid is for everyone who said I love chocolate and bread can you mix them together? YES, YES you can thanks to Jen my Texas friend, who is feeling like she is roasting in the Texas heat! Sorry... but come November you will be eating yummy soup in a Bread Bowl and eating my other favorite braid, The Caramel Apple Braid!

I was featured on my dear friends blog making yummy Fast Easy Bread treats including the S'more braid. Check it out http://www.vonnierombom.blogspot.com/

Here is the recipe for the S'more Braid below

First roll out 1/2 the dough recipe to make a Braid,

then for the bottom layer its 1 sleeve of Graham Crackers crushed and 1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
drizzle 1/4 of a can of sweetened condensed milk (I love this stuff, its a dessert all by itself)
3 scoops of marshmellow fluff. Spread it out as best you can.
Braid the dough and drizzle 1/4 more of the can of sweetened condensed milk on top

What is your favorite Pizza Selena Gomez?

My sweet daughters got the chance to meet Selena Gomez! She was really nice and gave them her undivided attention. We got to see her new movie Monte Carlo and then meet her at the Four Seasons to ask her fun questions.

My 5 year Taylor asked her what her favorite pizza was and Selena surprised us with

Jalapenos and Mushrooms!

Selena also told us that while filming the movie she loved to eat bread and Nutella. The movie starts out in Texas and then you get to see Paris, then Monte Carlo and a little bit of Romania or so we thought.

Katelynn my 9 year old asked if she really got to go to all these places and thats when we learned Texas and Romania were actually filmed in Budapest!

Ashley my 7 year old asked her when her birthday! Its July 22 and she will be 19. My girls just loved the chance to meet her and they really got the Royal Treatment.

Take your daughters to see Monte Carlo, the movie is cute and they places are beautiful. Its was really clean and Selena did a great job playing so many characters!

Monkey Bread as seen on Oprah but way FASTER!

I watched Oprah the other day and it was all about her best friend Gayle. Gayle loves food and one of her favorite things to eat is Monkey Bread. The whole audience got to try it and I thought I would check out the recipe. WOW! I was shocked to see how long it would take to make it, around 3 hours. You can make Fast Easy Monkey Bread in 60 minutes or less from start to eating. Please don't be like me and dig in when it is way to hot! I always burn my mouth because I just can't wait.

First make the dough, but remember that if you make a full recipe it is enough for 2 pans of monkey bread. In my case I made a pizza for dinner and monkey bread for dessert.

Roll out half the dough and cut it into 1 inch squares. Coat each square with cinnamon and sugar and then place in a bunt pan.

If you want to add pecans sprinkle them on the bottom of the pan and then place your cinnamon/sugar dough pieces of the top.

Then make your sauce. 1/2 cup BUTTER (real butter, no substitutes) 1 cup brown sugar. Microwave for 2 minutes but stir after 1 minute. Then add 2 tablespoons cream or milk stir until all mixed together and it looks like caramel sauce. Then drizzle all of the sauce over the dough pieces in the bunt pan. Let it rise for 10 minutes and then bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and set a plate or platter over the top of the bunt pan and flip it out on to the platter. Don't worry about smashing the monkey bread that has baked up and out of the pan. It will look great and taste even better when you flip it up.

Enjoy with friends and family, its way to much to eat by yourself, trust me!

A Request for Rolls

I had a request for how I make dinner rolls. I grew up watching my dad make rolls for sunday dinner and when I asked him why do you knot them he said it looks nice. So here is how I make them.

I start out by making a batch of FAST EASY BREAD dough.

Out of one batch of dough I can get about 20 rolls.

I take a tennis ball sized amount of dough and roll it in my hand to make a snake or 6 inch rope. Then I just take the rope and tie it in a knot. Spray your hands with cooking spray to keep the dough from sticking. Spray as often as you need too.I place them on a large cookie sheet and let them rise for 20 minutes and then bake them for 20 minutes.

I really like to eat them with butter and honey or just butter if I am eating them with a yummy Sunday dinner of roast and mashed potatoes.

I use the remaining rolls (if there is any) for sandwiches for the kids lunches or breakfast in the morning.

Pumpkin Shaped Bread Bowls and Rolls

These are super easy to make and add lots of excitement to any soup. My kids must eat a bowl of potato soup before trick or treating and putting it in a bread bowl shaped and colored to look like a pumpkin adds enough fun that they eat it up.

First to color your dough, just add red and yellow food coloring to your water before you add it to your dry ingredients.

Then shape the dough into 6 medium size balls with square stems on top.

Paint pumpkins with more food coloring, I used a kids watercolor brush.

I also cut little slits along the sides of the pumpkin to add texture and depth.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

Cool for 10 minutes and then cut the top off.

Dig out the inside of the bowl.

Fill with your favorite soup and enjoy! I really like potato soup, or white chicken chili.
