So it doesnt sound very photographic but I assure you I took one picture to tease you with. I have had a husband and 2 children sick with nasty colds that include all sorts of yucky stuff so I tried to make some goodness for them. I am hoping to make it out of this without the cold myself. So forgive my not posting the last couple of weeks and enjoy this recipe. Its not my own but it sure it good.
- 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup margarine, melted
- 4 1/2 cups bread flour
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Place first 7 ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended. Select dough cycle; press Start. You can do this in your mixer or by hand just let dough rise in a warm area for 1hr punch down slightly and let rise for another 30 min
- After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Roll dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Rolls will increase in size while baking. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

I just love going though old images and seeing what I find. I love to look at how much I have progressed as a photographer. For me going through these images is like watching my kids grow up. There are lots of changes. Bumps on the road and in the end the journey is worthwhile. The best part is that looking through these images I see my life and where I am during a certain moment. Also there is no evidence of the grey hairs that are not so slowly creeping along my head. I actually caught my 8yr old daughter noticing them the other day. Thats bad. My point is though that seasons change and the photo below I didnt bother to edit because I didnt like it. As of today I LOVE it. So take a break and check back. I bet you find some photographs that you love too.
Dont forget about the family fun contest!

Well were getting close to wedding season again. This year I plan on filling my plate so to speak and allowing more weddings on the books. I absolutely adore shooting weddings and love that I can help a couple by capturing the details of their wedding. So without further ado. Here are my new brochures. Please give me a call to book your consult!
