I think the point has been established that I am not afraid to try new recipes, in fact I would say that I thrive on trying new recipes. I usually have a notebook with ideas jotted down in it and literally carry this all over with me because one never knows when inspiration will hit.

With that being said I do not make new recipes every single meal. No way, no how. I have staples that I always turn to for meals. Now desserts that’s a bit of a different issue because I don’t make those every day so if I am going to make one it tends to be new unless it’s going somewhere to serve the public. Then I usually refrain from testing a new recipe out in case of failure. Yes, I have my fair share of failures people! I bet you are just shocked aren’t you?

Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa with Maple Ricotta - Your new favorite, healthy breakfast! | Julieseatsandtreats.com | #glutenfree #quinoa #recipe

This is the story of the time that I over-estimated the size of my stomach.

This is also the story of the time that I somehow failed to remember that quinoa is, like, REALLY REALLY absorbent.

And, it doubles in size when you cook it. You would think that some who makes the stuff on the ‘reg would know this.  But, this is me that we’re talking about.

SO, this is how the story goes.  I was making quinoa.

I bet I have your attention with that captivating opener, amiright?

“How hungry are you? How much quinoa would you like to have?” I asked my stomach.  Because all the normal people do that…right?

Julie’s Easy Meal Plans ~ Simple every day meals for the busy family!!

This past weekend we went to the cabin and took out the dock and pontoon.

Then I almost cried.

I looked around at the trees turning bright fiery red, vibrant orange and then I took a breathe and realized it’s fall and it’s gorgeous and I need to appreciate the season for what it is. Not the intro to winter. That’s not fair to fall. It’s like the poor neglected stepchild of winter.

That’s my very insightful thought for today!

Enjoy your meal plan :)

When I was asked to be a Become a Better Baker Blog Ambassador and found out that part of this would include using Fleischmann’s® ActiveDry Yeast I was a little scared, I’m not going to lie. I decided to conquer my fear and tackle it head on. I mean, it’s just yeast, right? How scary can this be? I’m not one to back down from a challenge!

My first project was to tackle these amazing Candied Bacon Cinnamon Rolls. I may have started hyperventilating when I received my assigned recipe because patient people make rolls and I was not that person in my mind. Knowing that I was going to have to focus on this task, I invited my mother over to supervise, more or less watch my child while I did this because my mother instilled my fear of yeast in me. I was not going to get much help from her!

Candied Bacon Cinnamon Rolls ~ Amazingly Soft and Flaky Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Loaded with Candied Bacon!

Guess what? I pulled this recipe off on the first try and it was seriously amazing. Wow. Wow. Wow. My husband, father and mother have since been begging me to do this again stating the fact that practice makes perfect and they are sure that each time I make these rolls I’ll be more confident. They might have a point. Well I know they do, but I think they also are saying this for their own benefit!

Candied Bacon Cinnamon Rolls Collage

Moral of the story: If you are a little nervous about using yeast, please take a deep breath, grab that packet of Fleischmann’s® ActiveDry Yeast and conquer your fear. If I can do it, so can you. I promise. Just follow the directions!

Did you know that using floss to cut your cinnamon rolls is amazing? I remember that my friend’s mom did this when I was growing up and I always thought it was so neat. I finally got to do it on my own. Just slide the piece of floss under the rolls and then bring the ends towards each other, crossing them, and pulling the floss through the dough. You end up with a nice clean cut!

While I know I’m incredibly blessed in life to be able to provide for my family and child, not every family is as lucky. Families all across America are struggling with hunger and many times children are hit the hardest. The Baking A Difference campaign that Fleischmann’s is a supporter of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, and invites you to join the cause!

 NoKidHungry_campaign_10june2

The challenge is to bake for someone you love to help bake a difference. Consider hosting a bake sale to spread the word! You can inspire your family, friends, teachers, neighbors and others to get involved in this amazing campaign. Collectively, we can all harness the power of baking recipes and bake a difference together to end child hunger in America. Please visit http://www.breadworld.com/NoKidHungry.aspx to learn how to get involved!

Candied Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Prep Time: 2 hours, 45 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours, 5 minutes

Yield: 18 rolls

Serving Size: 1 roll

Candied Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients

    Rolls
  • 1/2 c. warm water (100° to 110°F)
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 to 6-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Candied Bacon
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • Filling
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Spice Islands® Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 lb candied bacon
  • 2 tsp butter
  • Frosting
  • 3 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/4 c. maple syrup
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp milk

Instructions

  1. Combine warm water and yeast in a small bowl; set aside for 5 minutes to soften yeast.
  2. Combine milk, butter, sugar and salt; heat until warm (100° to 110°F). Pour into large mixer bowl. Add yeast mixture, eggs and 4 cups flour. Beat for 3 minutes on medium speed until smooth. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  3. Knead dough in stand mixer with dough hook or on a lightly floured surface for 8 to 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat all sides. Cover and place in a warm, draft free place and let rise about 45 to 60 minutes, until doubled in bulk.
  4. While dough is rising, prepare candied bacon. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place bacon in a large bowl and coat with brown sugar. Cover baking sheet with tinfoil. Place bacon strips on pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until bacon is golden brown and crisp. Transfer bacon to plate lined with paper towel to drain. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in a small bowl to cool. Crumble bacon when cool enough to handle.
  5. Combine brown sugar, spices and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  6. Punch dough down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half; roll each half into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Brush surface with butter; sprinkle each rectangle with an equal amount of brown sugar mixture and crumbled bacon. Roll up dough, starting from the long side; press seams together to seal. Cut each log into 9 equal slices. Place 9 rolls each (cut side down) in a greased 13 x 9-inch pan. Cover and let rise about 30 to 45 minutes in a warm, draft free place, until doubled.
  7. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned (internal temperature of rolls should reach 190°F). Let cool 10 minutes in pans; invert on large serving platter or surface covered with parchment paper and frost.
  8. To make frosting, mix powdered sugar and syrup in a medium bowl. Stir in enough milk to reach desired consistency.

Let’s talk egg bakes. I’m sorta, kinda particular about them.

I hate them with bread, but I’m all about them with potatoes. It’s just a texture thing I’m thinking. The bread comes across as mushy to me. Mushy is a no go in Julie’s life. Texture can totally put me off a recipe. But if you throw potatoes in an egg bake I’m eating up hand over fist. Anyone else feel like this about bread in egg bakes?

It started as a young child and I haven’t ever tried bread egg bake again. I think I’ve maybe, mostly likely made this a huge deal in my mind and it’s really not but now I have a irrational fear of trying it. Ridiculous huh?

How do I know so much about you? It’s kind of scary isn’t it?

It’s because all of a sudden my pumpkin recipes are going crazy. Can anyone say Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Cookies or Overnight Pumpkin Cheesecake French Toast Casserole? You guys all seem to be in the mood for it. I don’t really blame you, I mean it is a fantastic ingredient so why do we only eat it in the fall? Maybe you are a rebel and enjoy it all year long.

I much prefer this type of decorating to Christmas lights when it’s 30 degrees out! That’s when I delegate to the hubs. Not that I didn’t delegate a little to him this time too!

Have a wonderful week!

Chicken BLT Salad ~ Easy Salad Loaded with Romaine, Bacon, Grilled Chicken Tomatoes, Parmesan and Three Cheese Ranch Dressing!

 I have often said this here on the blog but lunch is the main thing I struggle with. Dinner? Snacks? Breakfast? Appetizers? Dessert? Trust me I’ve got all those nailed. When it comes to lunches I just typically feel uninspired and lazy. Maybe it’s because usually I’m at work and it’s just whatever leftovers I have in the fridge that morning or the fact that on the weekends I just wing it and don’t plan it typically like I do for dinner. Lately I’ve tried embracing lunches and trying new things. New things that make my taste buds dance because obviously we like dancing taste buds here on Julie’s Eats & Treats!

With that being said I still like to eat a lighter lunch so I don’t fall asleep at my desk later in the day, which sometimes I struggle with anyways. This girl can never, ever have enough sleep in her life. Perfect amount for me is about 10 hours and we know that’s not happening between work, life, a child, the gym and some me time we are looking at about 7 hours of sleep!
