Cinnamon buns

Captain's Log, Supplemental

All I can say is, I’m in such trouble.

I have discovered this bread machine recipe for cinnamon rolls. It is incredibly easy (I even substituted ¾ cup water and 2 T dry milk with ¾ cup milk instead, to make things even easier for me).

It took 5 minutes to throw the ingredients in the bread machine. It took only 10 minutes to roll the dough out (it was incredibly malleable and easy to roll) and slather it with the cinnamon and sugar and butter paste. I popped those suckers out of the oven after only 20 minutes bake time and drizzled with icing made with powdered sugar, hot water from my electric hot pot, and butter melted in the microwave.

They were SO GOOD.

Notice the past tense. Yup, there is only one roll left, and that’s for Captain Caffeine’s breakfast. I made these on Tuesday and today’s … Thursday? We’re completely addicted. I don’t even want to think about the number of calories in each one.

I’m making some tonight for writer’s group meeting! Bwahahahahahahaha …


  1. I think the only reason you would need to use the powdered milk and water instead, is if you had it on a delay. For example, you wouldn't want sour milk sitting in the bread machine all night. Ick. ;-)

  2. Oh, yum!
    I printed off the recipe~ now I'll have to dig my bread machine out (it's in hiding!)~ I think my 13-year-old daughter will enjoy trying these!
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am SOOOOO going to ignore this post, that recipe and those buns!

    I ate one larger than that every morning when pregnant with my first son. Had to have it.

    Those were dark days.

    I'm praying for you.

    Moving on...

  4. Thank you so much for this recipe! I printed it out and my sister made them over the weekend. Yummmmmmmmm!

  5. Am I glad I don't have a bread machine? Hmmm. Let me think about it. (Of course, they could probably be made without the machine....and maybe the sugar replaced with granulated sugar alcohol...but I wonder what they'd taste like if made with whole wheat flour...probably way too wheaty!)

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

How can I pray for you?

Photo credit: 日本語訳は下をご覧ください。 Just when I was feeling better, I had another bad IBS flare up! I had a really wretched 2 weeks in September, but I’m finally starting to feel better. Despite the lost two weeks, I got right back to work and now I'm getting close to finishing book 5 in my Regency series. Please continue to pray that my health will be stable so that I can write without getting derailed by my IBS like I was last month. Lord, thank You for all You give to us. You remind us in little ways each day that You are watching over us and that You love us. Help us to have humble hearts that submit to Your will for us, because we know that You love us fiercely and only want what’s best for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. How can I pray for you today? Please leave me your prayer requests! Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me.
