Cinnamon Rolls and Tupperware Finds

DSC08357

I made cinnamon rolls for my work meeting this morning. I also brought in a nice plate of Tuscan Cantaloupe and grapes. It was quite a challenge carrying it all inside and setting it down on the table. I ended up tipping my fruit platter and dumping half of that deliciously sweet cantaloupe on the floor. Darn! Well, at least it wasn't the cinnamon rolls.

This is my second time making cinnamon rolls from scratch. I found a gorgeous and oh so scrumptious recipe for Finnish Cinnamon Rolls over at Rosa's blog. I really wish mine would have turned out as beautifully as hers. They still tasted fantastic but I don't quite have the hang of the technique for these...yet. I'll be trying again very soon. Despite the shape not coming out quite right, I found these yummy rolls disappeared at record speed. ;0) Hop on over to Rosa's place to see how they should look.

I also wanted to show you part of my recent Tupperware order. When I spotted these cute salt and peppers shakers I just knew I couldn't live without them. I remember seeing these when I was a young girl, only back in the 70's they didn't come in pretty pink. Who can resist pink Tupperware salt and pepper shakers?? Not me!

Hope the sun is shining over your way this week!

They look fantastic to me. What matters in cinnamon rolls is taste, and I believe these were gorgeous.
I used to work for Tupperware, I still have a house full of similar stuff, always useful and pretty.

Jeannie said...

But your cinnamon rolls look so gorgeous! I like how they look, really nice! ANd your tupperwares are very useful too!

Meister @ The Nervous Cook said...

I'll bet people were following their noses to get to those cinnamon rolls.

They look gorgeous -- don't even think of being hard on yourself for making something that isn't food-magazine perfect if it tastes great! It's all about what's inside -- in this case, delicious, delicious cinnamon.

(Anyway, I've been telling myself "personality is everything" for years...)

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

Your cinnamon rolls look delicious!

Joanne said...

Who cares about shape when you have a cinnamony center and a delicious glaze!

sheila @ Elements said...

I think your cinnamon rolls turned out great! They look beautiful to me! And I love those salt and pepper shakers. I remember we used to have some Tupperware salt and pepper shakers but they were white. I don't remember any pink ones. They're darling though.

Oh my, my mother had a set of those S&P shakers in the 70s, the colours weren't so bright then, but we used them on holidays for many years. The Cinnamon rolls look delicious, I would come to your meetings just for the rolls lol!

I am new here. Those rolls look wonderful, I definately would like to try these. Kim, do you have the receipe? Also, I sell Tupperware, for a very short time now. I used to years ago... and I have never seen those shakers, when did you get them, if you don't mind saying?? Would you please sent me a quick note on my TW site for both, please? Thx in advance!
