First, check out these amazing Cinnamon rolls I have made twice now. Typically I prefer things which are totally from scratch however these are too good to be concerned with the fact that it's simply Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls with precooked bacon strip rolled up inside. Try them. You won't be sorry. I unroll them on a cutting board and lay 3 or 4 strips of bacon on the long strip of dough. As I re-roll them, I scoop up the gooey stuff that sticks to the cutting board and smear it back on. Bake as the directions say. They are OMG good. You need to know however that PK doesn't "get it" so she's liable to try to dissuade you from making these. Ignore her. She's clueless when it comes to good food.
Next on the list is Italian Cream Sodas. I first had one in Savannah, Ga. all the way back in 2007. It was amazingly good however I never gave it much thought afterwards.... that was not until I saw this cross my wall on Facebook. They are easy to make:
Put some ice in a 12 ounce glass. To that add 2/3 cup club soda. And then stir in 4 tbs. of that flavored syrup stuff you buy for coffee. (Davinci or Torani) Use 2 tbs. Vanilla with 2 tbs any other flavor... unless of course you want a vanilla soda then you use all vanilla. Cherry is amazing. Raspberry is good. I have Hazelnut, Chocolate, and Carmel syrups yet to try. Oh, and then you drizzle two TBS of Half and Half onto the top for the effect you see below. Top with a squirt of whipped cream and a cherry.
It looks great when presented but stir well before drinking. So so so sooooo good.
But there was one little problem with the sodas. Adam and I each had one with lunch on Sunday. Later that evening we wanted another but guess what? The bottle of club soda I had opened earlier was already flat. Boo! Sooooooo.... that lead to my third new obsession:
Mine's red. It came with six samples and I bought 8 bottles. I will never buy soda again. Pink Grapefruit is awesome! The cola and root beer is wonderful too. AND I have fresh club soda when I want it!!
So that's what's new with me.....what's new with you?
