Tuesday’s Tips

Have you ever read a recipe and didn’t know what one or several of the ingredients were? Have you seen a utensil used on TV but didn’t know what to call it?   Don’t know what temperature to cook the chicken at?   Wonder how much meat you need to feed 12 people?

Well look no further.  Betty Crocker has a really cool section called “Tips and How-Tos” on their website that can answer these questions.  Because, just like they say, Great cooks aren’t born knowing how to chop an onion or separate an egg—they had to learn, and so can you.”

Bookmark this page for easy referral.  I’ve used it time and time again.

Mmmmm Monday – Cinnamon Rolls

Anyone heard of The Pioneer Woman?  I’m sure most of you are just rolling your eyes and saying – Duh Kendra.  I’ve only been following her blog for about 6 months now and can’t seem to imagine my life without her in it.  I just want to sit down at her table and eat dinner with her family out on the ranch.  How does that woman do everything?

While I was watching her Christmas special on the Food Network, she made these lovely cinnamon rolls.  I have not made them yet, but it’s on my “holiday vacation” to-do list.  I know my family would love them.   And if you just happen to be one of those people who don’t know who The Pioneer Woman is, you need to check out her blog.  You’ll want to have dinner on the ranch with her too.

For her complete recipe for her Cinnamon Rolls – click here – you won’t be disappointed.
