Cinnamon Roll Doughnuts with Vanilla Glaze and Sprinkles

I baked fried these over the weekend. Yummy. I have a new love - deep fried Cinnamon Rolls dipped in vanilla glaze with sprinkles. I mean, I always loved a good donut - and I always loved cinnamon rolls - so I combined the two. 

I'm sure this idea is not even so original, but that doesn't matter, really. I recommend you try them. Recipe posted here at my other blog--gig!


In other news, I'm working on a book review of My Best Friend Named Chocolate - I mentioned this little book at the beginning of the year. So far I've tried three recipes in it. One dessert and two main course meals. I've got a dessert scheduled to try out Friday when we have guests for dinner - The Elders - missionaries from the Church - it's my charity thing I do to feed these guys once in a while, plus it gives me an extra excuse to bake ;)

And I'm trying out another main course meal next Monday. It's going to be my thing over the next couple weeks to try out some recipes on Monday nights until I feel like I've tried out most of the book. 

You know what is really lame, one of my peeves I guess, when you go on Amazon and you read the book reviews and some people give a book like 1 star and they've only tried one or two recipes. I don't think that's fair. I think you should try out at least 50% of the recipes before you can fairly judge it. That's just me I guess. So that is the plan here.


One last item here: Babi Pangang. I mentioned it last week. I made it last Friday night - at least one version of it. It wasn't that bad but it wasn't that good either. So, now from here on out on Friday night we will be eating Babi Pangang. A different recipe every week until we find the one that we like. 

So, note to self: do not use that version again... no good. Too sour. And for some reason the pork was very dry. Gotta figure out how they bake it so crispy on the outside and tender inside. Perhaps with the slow cooker?

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Making Friends 101

After moving back to the U.S. - there was definitely a readjustment period for me. So, I put time into starting a blog. And then getting myself out there, making friends and getting involved and going places and doing things with the children.

Then when I did that, and I did it successfully, there really was no time to blog about how great St. George is. I have come across a few other mommy bloggers that have attempted to explain just how great this area is, but after a time, everyone kinda stops and it's because we are enjoying the sunshine and the nature and all that this area has to offer that we stop blogging or just don't do it as often.

Recently a good friend, Michelle, that I met shortly after moving here, asked if I would write some blog posts for her on her blog Green Kale and Yams about my recent change has a Vitamix owner. I said, yes.

Now it's time to get the word out, that I have switched over from using a cheap model smoothie maker to an Americ…

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …
