Yummy Cinnamon Rolls

This is a new family favorite.  We have been enjoying them fresh a LOT.  A lot more than I care to admit. I was thrilled to discover that once baked they also freeze beautifully.  I sadly cannot take credit for the original recipe but I made some alterations that I will take credit for.
                                                                           Cinnamon Filling
2 cups warm water                                               1 cube butter (melted)
2 packages dry yeast (2 T.)                                   3 tablespoons cinnamon
2/3 cup oil                                                            1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
6 cups flour

Soften yeast in warm water then add eggs, oil, salt and sugar and mix well.  Add flour and mix well knead until smooth and elastic.  It will still be a little sticky.  (I use my kitchen aid mixer for the entire process with  great success).
Let dough rise until double and then roll on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch in thickness.  Spread melted butter over dough and then sprinkle the cinnamon and brown sugar (mixed together) over entire surface.  Then start with the widest end and roll up tight.  Slice in 1 inch rolls and place on greased cookie sheet about 1/2 inch apart.  Makes about 18-20 rolls.  Let rise until double.  Then bake at 350 degrees until done.  I use a convection oven and it takes about 15-20 minutes.

Let cool for about 10 minutes then frost.

I use a cream cheese frosting
 1 package cream cheese
 1 cube butter
 about 1 bag of powdered sugar 
 1 tsp vanilla
 milk to smooth thick consistency
They are delicious and like I stated before they can also be frozen and enjoyed later.  I froze them frosting and all with great results I just thawed and warmed in the microwave.
Here is a sneak peek of what they look like rising.  To see the finished product you can visit my silly Vlog and see how delicious they truly appear!!
(I know this isn't a great shot I took it with my camera to entice my husband home one day teehee!)  It totally  worked!!!

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
