This morning for breakfast we had leftover hash brown casserole.
I also made up some quick cinnamon rolls from biscuits.
(like a monkey bread)
-1 can biscuits
-1/4 cup butter, melted
-1/4 cup sugar
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-caramel syrup

Melt butter in a bowl in microwave.
In another bowl add the dry ingredients
and mix together. Dip biscuits into melted
butter then into sugar-cinnamon mix.
Arrange in a greased pie pan.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes.
Drizzle a little caramel syrup over top
of biscuits before serving.
Makes 10.



Went to bible study and right before it started
Tony called. He said the property manager tried
my dessert this morning and got on the walkie talkie
to the whole property to tell Tony "IT WAS THE BOMB!"
Lol. This ain't not rinky dinky property either.
It has almost 900 apartments near Upper Arlington.
So there will be a lot of people sampling the treats
for the contest. Tony also told me later on that
another leasing office guy tried my dessert after
hearing all the talk about it and said,
"oh my Gosh, that was sooo good!"
So I'm hoping to see what the results are later on.


The last day of February and it's 69 degrees out!!
That says a lot for Ohio weather.
Typically we would be having wind chills in the minuses,
many inches of snow on the ground and school closings.
I'll take this kind of weather any day!
I opened all but three windows in the house today
to let the fresh air in.

Let's have a flashback!
4 Years ago on March 7th to 8th 2008...

Columbus Ohio Blizzard March 2008

-3 1/2 months later we would be moving into our new home.
-6 months later we would have a blackout for about a week
thanks to Hurrican Ike wind storm.

It started snowing before 10:00 A.M. in Columbus on Friday March 7th and did not stop until after 4:00 on Saturday, March 8, 2008.

According to meteorologist Ben Gelber on Channel 4 News, the NBC affiliate in Central Ohio it was a historic storm with accumulations from 10" to 20" inches throughout the region.

An airplane landing at Port Columbus skidded off the runway overnight. No one was hurt.

Franklin County was a level 2 snow emergency but many of the surrounding Central Ohio counties were level 3, including Delaware County. By Ohio Law when a level three snow emergency exists you can not drive. Only emergency vehicles are allowed on the roads during a level 3 snow emergency.

BIG difference from 4 years ago huh!?



Tony got off work early and used up some overtime he had.
The contest still wasn't over with when he left.
I figured it would run all day and give residents
and workers a chance to stop by and sample the goods
and vote. It's really looking up for me though
with hearing all the positive comments from my dessert.
Ya know what sucks? I have never made this dessert
before and there was no way to taste/sample it
before heading to the contest because of it being
a cake. Don't want to send something with a piece
missing from it, lol. So I just took a stab in the dark
with this recipe without ever making it or tasting it, LOL!
