~Baking~ :-D

The other day I made some chocolate chip cookies, four loaves of whole wheat bread, and a pan of whole wheat cinnamon rolls topped with icing! Mmmm! Below are some pictures from the baking day! Enjoy! :-D

Here is the large piece of dough! It just came out of the bread machine and is ready to be divided into five portions!

Here I was shaping the dough into loaves and placing them into their pans. After rising, they went into the oven to bake!

And here is the finished product!

While the bread was baking, I rolled out the fifth portion of dough, spread a little butter over its surface and then sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar. :-)

I then, rolled it up......

....and cut it into cinnamon rolls!

Once baked, I added the icing and we all had to sample them! :-)

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

In Christ.

~I Serve A Risen Savior!!!!!!!~

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified."He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying."Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

Matthew 28:5-8

Happy Resurrection Day to you all!


"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."

~The Making of A Carrot Cake~

Today I made a delicious carrot's the recipe! :-D

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing
2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
3 t. cinnamon
1 1/2 vegetable oil (we used smart balance)
4 eggs
3 c. grated carrots
1 c. chopped nuts (optional)
1 t. vanilla

Cream Cheese Icing
1/2 c. melted butter
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 t. vanilla
1- 1 lb. box powered sugar (add to taste)
Sift together sugar, flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.

Stir in oil.

Add eggs...

(only four! ;-D ) at a time, mixing well after each addition.

(Grating the carrots.)

Add carrots, nuts and vanilla, mixing thoroughly.

Pour into a floured and greased 13 x 9 x 2" cake pan. Bake in 350* oven for 30 minutes.

We used two 9" round cake pans and baked them until a toothpick inserted came out clean... approximately 40 minutes.

Cool in pan, spread with Cream Cheese Icing.

We used a butter cream frosting to reduce calories and cholesterol. :-) It was quite good!

And here is the finished project! :-)

Hope you all have a blessed day!

In Christ,

"If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;
knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ."
1 Peter 1:17-19
