Homemade cinnamon rolls with grand marnier icing. April 23, 2012 | Sweet Mornings | Sweet Recipes | Comments Over the weekend I made homemade cinnamon rolls.

homemade cinnamon rolls with grand marnier icing

I followed Paula Dean’s recipe, which is really incredible! It’s a little time consuming because the bread needs to have time to rise, but other than that it’s very easy to follow and there is a video that walks you through each step. I also added 2 1/2 teaspoons of Grand Marnier to the icing to spruce it up a bit… All I can say is YUM!! I thought this would be the perfect treat to make for mom come Mother’s Day, May 13th.

Not very long ago I was commenting (ok, whining) that 2011 was one "weak-ass" year for fans of horror cinema.

Horror Cinema 2011: 20 Best, 20 Worst, and 13 to Watch Out for Next Year

But then I sat down to write a top ten, which became a top twenty ... plus a bunch of "honorable mention" titles left over. And after I finished cobbling together a Bottom 20, just to keep things even, I was irritated to notice that I've already seen at least 13 2012 horror flicks that also deserved a mention. So here's the whole package, courtesy of me, Movies.com editor and resident film critic for FEARnet.com.

Good Horror Movies Every Fan Has To See. If you ask people on the street for some suggestions of a great horror movie, odds are you'd get a wide range of answers.

Good Horror Movies Every Fan Has To See

You’d get everything from the scariest slasher film to horror comedies and even b-rated horror movies that barely classify for the genre. Because we all have a different capacity for being scared and our own unique reasons for watching horror films, we of course have varying tolerances for gore and suspenseful movies[2].

Storytelling is an art form and the best stories share a hero, his struggles, and the ultimate victory of the hero over the villain. Great horror movies drag out the suspense until the end[1], sometimes never concluding with victory. The most successful horror franchises are masterful at drawing the suspense to the next movie, where the hero will finally be able to overcome the villain. Let's get started, shall we?

Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

An easy chicken recipe your whole family will love. What can be more kid friendly than chicken nuggets, even the pickiest kids like them. Serve them with ketchup, bbq sauce or whatever you like to dip your nuggets into. Adults can serve them over your favorite salad for a satisfying lunch. Kids love finger foods or anything you can eat with toothpicks so when my daughter was young I would make her a dish of bite sized goodies she liked such as tomatoes, olives, pasta, etc. and served them with toothpicks and she always cleaned her plate! Once I'm in breading mode I usually make breaded zucchini sticks as well and bake them all at the same time along with some pasta and a salad for a complete meal. Double these for more or make half for less servings. Ingredients: Preheat oven to 425°. Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in another.

Crispy Honey Chicken. Chicken.

Crispy Honey Chicken

It’s what’s for dinner in our house countless nights a week. I think you can agree that it can be cumbersome coming up with yet another creative chicken dinner idea, week after week. Unless of course, you’re married to Mr. How Sweet, in which case you can eat the same chicken dinner night after night. Well, he can. Or that just might be me. See those veggies up there? Actually, I’m lying – I picked them all out. No words were spoken. But enough about bacon. This dish was delish. I think that means it’s good.

Crunchy Honey Chicken serves 2+ 1 pound thinly sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breasts 2 egg whites 1/3 cup cornstarch (or flour – for dredging) 1 cup broccoli florets 1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced a handful of sugar snap peas (about 3/4 cup) 1 clove garlic, minced 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1/4 cup honey salt and pepper to taste Prepare and slice all veggies – feel free to add whatever you would like. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. STICKY SITUATION. Photos + design by Kristin Ess It’s really hard to get clean lines when it comes to putting stripes on manicures. I’m going to share a little DIY secret– nail polish on scotch tape.

Pip & Ebby - Pip &Ebby - Crack&brownies. Have you ever tried crack? Yeah, me either. After eating these brownies, though, I feel like I would probably be less addicted to crack. I mean, how can that not be the case with brownies, peanuts, marshmallows, Reese's peanut butter cups, chocolate, peanut butter and Rice Krispies all present in a single bite?! This recipe comes from my very good Heather, and I am very grateful that she shared it! Prepare 1 package of brownie mix according to the package directions.

While the brownies are baking, chop enough Reese's peanut butter cups (I used minis) to make 1 cup. Add on top of the baked brownies: 1/2 cup salted peanuts 1 cup Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped 2 cups miniature marshmallows Return to the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for an additional 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows begin to puff and brown and the chocolate begins to melt. In a medium bowl, combine: 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter Pour mixture evenly over the brownies.
