Stress = Baking/Cooking

When I am stressed out, I bake or cook. So, watch for lots of baked goods this week. Today was a rough day. Found out that Jon’s wrist (navicular bone) is chipped/fractured. The dr from the urgent care called me back this afternoon and told me that the radiologist read the x-ray and called back right after we left last night. We have an appointment for Jon to see the orthopedic doctor on Wednesday morning.

This morning I wanted to make my little, injured man feel better, so what better way than GF Cinnamon Rolls?? I used the Chebe Cinnamon Roll Up Mix and made the recipe using the method for the almond sticky buns on the back. I subbed walnuts for almonds though. They turned out wonderfully and it took Jon’s mind off his pain for a bit. :) Here is a picture (not that great b/c it was still dark out):

They are darker in color than typical cinnamon rolls for a couple of reasons. One, the mix has cinnamon in it. Second, the mix calls for applesauce (hey, didn’t I just make a bunch of that??) and my homemade applesauce is darker in color b/c of the brown sugar/cinnamon/nutmeg mixture I season it with.

Chebe Cinnamon Walnut Sticky Rolls

1 package Chebe Cinnamon Roll Ups
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Butter and/or Pam
9 inch pie pan or cake pan

1. Make mix according to directions.
2. Roll out into a rectangle.
3. Grease pan with butter or Pam.
4. Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup walnuts over the bottom of the greased pan.
5. Spray dough with Pam or spread with butter and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup walnuts over the rolled out dough.
6. Roll up into a log-like roll.
7. Slice in 1/2 inch slices and place swirl side down in pan.
8. Bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes, checking frequently.
9. Cool slightly, then invert onto a plate.
10. Enjoy!

One recipe down, one or 2 more to go for the day. I had to do something to keep my mind (and my fingers off the lap top) off of Jon’s injury.

I set off next on a marathon applesauce making event. I made a small batch the other day, today, I filled that 4.5 qt. crock pot to the rim! I peeled, cored and cut up 22 apples. YIKES! Not only did I want to freeze some, but I need some for upcoming recipes this week (applesauce cake and applesauce cookies). Here are some pics of my stuffed crock pot:

Apples before:

In the pot, ready to slow cook:

I started them at 10:30 AM and just packaged up my containers at 8:30 PM. Boy did it smell good in here!
