Super Quick Dinner Rolls

I'm not really sure where I copied this recipe from, but it was somewhere on the internet. I fixed a roast in the crockpot today, with mashed potatoes and vegetables. I always do homemade rolls with honey butter on them. But had to substitute these rolls instead. It was one of those days where having kids' means you change your plans at the drop of a hat! The kids' were in need of something to snack on after school! They gobbled up 2 quarts of strawberries I got at the store yesterday, yes they don't last long around here! So a little junky sweet treat was in order since the cookie jar was empty! I had my sweet little helper Evan gladly helping me and sneaking tiny spoonfuls of cookie dough into his little mouth. Baby was running around grunting for more chocolate chips, LOL! It was sooo cute! It won't be long 'till I'll be making a tiny apron for baby Justin!

These are more like a muffin than a roll, but I like them. I think Scott was the one that missed my homemade rolls the most, but he ate 4 or 5 of these little things, LOL!

Instant Rolls

-1 cup self-rising flour
-3 Tbls white sugar
-3 Tbls mayo
-1/2 cup milk

1.) Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Grease muffin pan.

2.) Mix flour and sugar together. Stir milk and mayo. Fill muffin tin 1/2 full.

3.) Bake 10 minutes, or till golden brown on top.

*NOTE* This only makes 6 muffins, if you need more, just double the recipe. I made 12 for us.

There's a chill in the air!!

The morning air that is! I stepped outside this morning to let the dog out and there was a chill in the air!! WOO-HOO! Makes me want to bake something! So I guess I will bake something yummy today with my little helper, Evan! I also used my free time (while the little kids' were still asleep this morning) to not do homework like I should have been doing, instead I used it to look at pictures of cakes! LOL! I could look at cake pictures for hours! I'm just mesmerized by the amazing cakes out there! I may do a chocolate cake today if I have enough cocoa powder left, stay tuned....

Won't be able to post much...

Well I have completely lost my mind! I have enrolled in school again, yes I'm talking about myself! I wait till I'm almost 35 to want to finish up my Bachelor's degree, I guess it's better late than never! So needless to say that I won't be able to post much, not that I had a lot of time to begin with.

I want to prove to my kids' and myself really (shhhh, don't tell anybody!) that you can achieve your dreams and goals no matter the age and no matter how hard it will be! At least that's what I keep telling myself, LOL!

The kids' school starts next week and mine the week after. The next several days will be trying to get ready for school and having fun! Relishing those last lazy days of summer with the boys!

I do want to post a tutorial for homemade cinnamon rolls, may try to post that before I start school!
