Grapefruit Sweet Rolls

In the past couple of months I’ve made dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls. The roll recipe was my mother’s and the cinnamon was one that we wrote together. I love them both, but I was very curious to know how making cinnamon rolls with the dinner roll recipe would turn out. I didn’t want to…

  This recipe is my ode to Homer Simpson. I recently bought the Lego Simpsons House (I’m a huge Lego and Simpsons fan) and the most adorably small Cuisinart deep fryer. My goal was to eat donuts while putting the house together. Since I’ve been having fun with my mom’s roll dough, I wanted to see…
