Make these immediately!

On Saturday night, when I didn't know how I was going to make it through the big project, my Meme brought over the inspiration that I needed.  She brought a bag of ingredients and a recipe.  It's a super easy recipe, so even the most inept cooks or bakers that I know should have no problem with it.  But the best part is that it tastes like heaven.

Here's the deal:

Buy a package of frozen Rhode's Cinnamon rolls at the grocery store.

Take 1 cup of brown sugar and put in the bottom of a dish (I think we used an 7X11 size pyrex dish).

Then cut up 1/4 cup of butter and lay the butter pats on top of the sugar

Set your frozen rolls on the top of the butter (we only used 6 of the 12 in the pkg.)

Pour a carton of Whipping Cream on top of all that mess (we used 1/2 pint, but I think you could use a whole pint if you wanted)

Then it gets weird, so hang with me for a minute...

Take the dish of all that stuff that's taken you a grand total of 2 minutes to "mix up" and place it in a cold oven.  Leave it.  All night.  For at least 8 hours.  When you wake up in the morning, peek inside your oven...you'll see that they have gloriously risen overnight!

Turn the oven on to 350 degrees (with the rolls still inside the oven) and cook for about 18-20 minutes.  Then pull them out of the oven and ice them with one of the packages of icing that came with the rolls.

They are wonderful, delicious, sinful, a billion calories, but beyond worth it...
Oh yeah...you should spoon up some of that buttery-sugary-creamy goodness onto the roll too.  Don't walk, but run to the store and get the ingredients to make these this weekend!  (Sorry we were dug right in before taking photos, so you didn't get to see the whole pretty bunch of them, just those we hadn't devoured yet!)

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
