Cinnamon Rolls

I found the best cinnamon roll recipe through blogland a couple of months ago. It's here at TheLittle Red Hen. They are soooo good. I try to remember to substitute a cup or two of whole wheat flour for the white so it's not too sweet. When you do that, you need to reduce the amount of flour you put in because whole wheat tends to be a bit heavier than white flour.

My SIL came tody and I showed her how to make the dough for this recipe. Bread is fairly easy to make, but it seems that there is a little bit of a learning curve. I'm a little bummed (although so glad she'll be able to enjoy bread whenever she wants) because I was just thinking this morning that I would bring cinnamon rolls to our next Christmas party for the white elephant game we play. (Don't worry Sarah, I'll figure something else just as good...maybe not just as good, but okay:) ) Any good ideas?

Oh, also I'm trying to get my SIL to do a once a month cooking marathon with me with this program. I was surfing blogs when I found this mom's blog. Her food looked so good. I e-mailed to make sure that this is where her recipes came from. Most of them did, but she did say that she found some on her own. I've looked at this site several times, and thought about buying the book, but worried that it might not be that good. (I've read a couple of OMC books and haven't really been impressed. One in particular was difficult to sift through the information and the food was not really all that good. For a little while I just did it myself with the information I learned from the different books, but it's been a looooong couple of years and I just want someone to have everything figured out for me.) I may have to bribe my SIL with reusable grocery bags or....Hmmmm.... I know I have a great pattern for a doggie bed. You love your dog don't you???!!.... ;)
