I have tons of awesome friends that I love. But I also have my BFF who fortunately for her has a wonderful Military hubby who has a fab job that allows her to be a stay at home mom. Unfortunately for me this means that said hubby's particular employment will ensure that BFF and I will be skyping if we wanna hang out and see each other. But that's OK cause I'm hoping for a Christmas visit from BFF and her family this year. Her name is Lucy, well not really it's Tanya but we call each other Lucy. I may share that at later date so feel free to call her what you like. Here is a guest post from her.....
I stay tuned to Nancy's blog as I have always admired her creative talents. Being a BFF and all, I decided I would try to aspire to her level on the cooking front. Truth be told, I got a lot of help from my friend Rae Ann. Here is a guest post of one of my new favourite treats, Orange Rolls. Similar to cinnamon rolls but WAY better in my opinion.
Milk Bread for Cinnamon Buns or Orange Rolls:
4 Cups Flour + 3-4 Cups more
2 TBSP Instant Yeast
2 Cups Milk, Warmed to 105-115 Degrees F
10 TBSP Butter Melted
6 TBSP Sugar
2 Eggs (Optional - It will make it fluffier)
1 Tsp Salt
Add enough flour for moist but not sticky dough. Kneed 10 min. Cover, let rise until doubled (1 to 1 1/2 hours), punch down.
For Orange Rolls - 2 dozen
Divide dough in half. Roll each into a 12" x 16" rectangle. Spread with Orange Paste. Roll up the dough. Slice into Rolls. Place each roll in a lightl greased muffin tin. Let rise 45-60 min. Bake 15-20 min at 350f.
1 Cup Sugar
1 Orange Rind Grated
Start by making the dough...as you can see the Bosch was fully capable to making dough for 6 dozen rolls.We separated the dough into 6 even amounts and then you roll each amount of dough out flat in a rectangle about 12" x 16 "
Next you spread the orange "Paste" over the whole thing.Then you carefully roll up the dough into a log shape.
You proceed to cut the log into about 12 pieces and place them in a muffin tin or on a baking sheet, cover and let rise for at least half an hour, bake and enjoy.

Don't they look delish! Alright Lucy here's the deal you make it out for Christmas and you show me personally how to make these bad boys! Not sure that we need to make 6 dozen thought 1 dozen should be enough.
