  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ---------------------------------
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon sugar and yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter and salt; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk mixture, eggs and 1 1/2 cup flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  3. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 2 hours.
  4. While dough is rising, melt 3/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 3/4 cup brown sugar, whisking until smooth. Pour into greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Sprinkle bottom of pan with 1/2 cup pecans; set aside. Melt remaining butter; set aside. Combine remaining 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup pecans, and cinnamon; set aside.
  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, roll into an 18x14 inch rectangle. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter, leaving 1/2 inch border uncovered; sprinkle with brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Starting at long side, tightly roll up, pinching seam to seal. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. With serrated knife (or use dental floss - really), cut into 15 pieces; place cut side down, in prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 1.5 - 2 hours or until doubled in volume. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool in pan for 3 minutes, then invert onto serving platter. Scrape remaining filling from the pan onto the rolls.

So this is the Tuesday after V-Day...., are we in sore bliss, or maybe sour grapes blues, or maybe, just maybe happy to be alive to live the dream and fight the fight?! I am feeling prolific and Von offered up a site with free reads....,
If I smoked I would be in the right after calm of it all.
So keeping that in mind..., Calm that is..., lets's think and look to the sun.... and consider a recipe, but I need a little more...,
This might work for some or and for others....,
Nothing like a group to continue the bliss....
I have to ask.... What exactly is this recipe for?
It's working out to be a recipe for a Mind-fk...., and I think I am gonna go with that. LOL We all need to take time for a cerebral caress. When your head is right everything else gets right. Happy Tuesday.

Man-Day by Stephie

It's the start of a new week and we all know what that means right time to make the donuts yep back to the grind of a new work week for most. Not sitting around relaxing and lazying about right. This was a special weekend past cause it was Valentine's Day a day set aside for love, kissy face, romance, surprises, tenderness a day that should be year round for the ones you love right. I won't take too much of your time cause I am sure you all are still coming down from the high of this weekend so just to get you juices flowing a bit more before the high rush fades here's a little sum'tan sum'tan for you to feast your eyes upon. All have a great week!


And let's not forget about the fellows.

Wow, with the Grammy's giving us some moving moments..., Man-Day leaving us drooling..., Usher's wife's new something and teenagers Chris Brown and Rihanna needing better parenting..., I NEED A DAMN DRINK!!!!! Even though alcohol is needed, the STIMULUS PACKAGE has just SURVIVED the SENATE, so we really need to keep our heads...., we are not ok YET! So how about a MOCK-TAIL, you know, a tall or rather, laying drink of yummy-ness, or a major lick of tied up hotness!!!! This seems sorta one sided today...., so how about some Vanna Black , laying and posing eye candy to help spin your letters. For those of you that are actually thirsty for something more than visual stimulation, how about

  • 2 (2 liter) bottles ginger ale, chilled
  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice, chilled
  • 1 (64 fluid ounce) bottle white grape juice, chilled
  1. In a large punch bowl, combine 1 bottle ginger ale, pineapple juice and white grape juice.
TIP: For some added fun you could always make and ice-ring.... Fill a ring-shaped cake pan to 1/2 with ginger ale. Freeze until partially frozen. At this stage you can place edible flowers, or pieces of fruit around the ring. Fill pan with ginger ale and freeze until solid. Place in punch bowl just before serving.
