Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner

Hey there guys, Just got an awesome thing in the mail courtesy of Buzz Agent, and I wanted to let you all know about it. They sent me one of the scrubbing bubble automatic shower cleaners. OH my goodness at the difference. We have a walk in shower, and it stays slick from the soap on the floor. I had been having to clean it everyday, but with this, I hardly ever have to do anything, just push the button after the shower, and that's it, your done. I love it. If you haven't already, you need to try one, they are wonderful. Thank you buzz agent.

Yummy Sugar Free Cinnamon Rolls

Okay guys, those of us that use coupons regularly have tons of these supplies on hand, so use them up before they expire... these are deff worth it!!

Ingredients needed for rolls

4 cups flour (plus some for rolling)
3/4 cup water around 110-115 degrees
1/2 cups sugar (must use the real stuff here to rise)
2 packets quick rise yeast
2 eggs
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp salt
about 2 sticks or so butter
splenda brand brown sugar or store brand just make sure its the sugar free stuff
splenda granulated sugar substitute

icing ingredients
powdered sugar (have to use real stuff here to,but not much)

mix the yeast and water together, until the yeast dissolves. Then pour in the sugar, salt, 2 cups of the flour, eggs, and shortening, and blend... if you have a kitchen aid, this is super easy!!

Once thats all mixed together good, slowly add the remaining two cups of flour. Blend together well... if using a kitchen aid, no need to knead the dough, the kitchen aid does it for you, but if not, you need to flour a small surface and knead the dough.

Place in a metal bowl, cover and allow to warm in a really nice and warm place...(tip: I turn on my oven, lay the door down, and set the bowl on the door, with the temp of the oven up high, the dough rises perfectly!) Allow to rise about two hours.

Next you will punch down the dough, flour surface, roll dough out, cover with melted butter, both sugars and cinnamon,just eye ball the sugars, thats what I done, and roll up. Cut the rolls and place in a round pan. allow to rise again.

Bake in 350 degree oven 12-15 minutes until golden brown, then take out and ice with glaze.

How to make glaze

Mix some powdered sugar, cream, and about a tsp or so of vanilla together, heat, then pour over, make it to the consistancy you like!
