Never Fail Rolls and Monkey Bread

This is the best tasting roll recipe that you will ever have.

This recipe is from Grandma Burrell.

She is one of the best cooks I know.

To make the monkey bread you simply roll balls of dough in you hand.

Dip them one at a time, in melted butter then a sugar and cinnamon mixture, while tossing them in a bundt pan.

Let them rise one more time.

Then bake them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes depending on your oven.

New Cool Whip Frosting

Have you tried the new Cool Whip Frosting?

It’s fabulous!!

I tried the chocolate.

I did not frost a cake with it.

I did not put it on cupcakes.

I didn’t even use it as dip for strawberries.

Cool Whip Frosting

I ate it straight from the tube that it came in!!!

Don’t tell anybody.

Hey now, it’s not as big a tub as the regular cool whip!!

Party Time

My son, Nic and his girlfriend, Megan came over to celebrate their birthdays. 

It just so happens that Megan’s birthday is the 17th of July and Nic’s is the 18th. 

I usually try to let the kids pick their own menu for their birthday and Nic’s menu was no surprise.  He wanted meatloaf and green bean casserole.  It wasn’t too bad! 

I know that they aren’t children any more, but, I used these rainbow candles anyway.

 On a store-bought cake.

Fun!!  Sorry this picture is so fuzzy.  I’m not very good at action shots.

Baby Michael loved the ice cream and cake part!  And he HAD to do it himself .

I have no idea!???!  Madison is always full of surprises.


 It’s always fun to have the kids at home together.  It doesn’t happen very often!!

That’s life at our house, throw everyone together as often as we can!!

April Fools Day Prank

 This little prank is from www.familyfun.com/magazine .

“Sponge” Cake

Total Time Needed:
1-2 Hours

What’s better than sharing cake with friends? The look on their faces when they discover your sponge cake is made of actual sponges!



  1. null Tell your victims that you “made a sponge cake,” and invite them to cut off a piece. To help ease the prank’s sting, serve real cake afterward.


What a great idea!!
