Works for Me Wednesday – Cinna-Mallow Rolls


The other day my daughter and her friend were in the kitchen conjuring up a recipe her friend learned in Home Ec.  Interestingly enough I had all the ingredients on hand and they were really tasty so I decided to come up with my own rendition and I’m sharing it with you. – ** I’ve been asked to post a picture, so tomorrow when I make some, I’ll snap a photo and update my post!

Here are the pictures – I was going to take some as I prepared them, but the battery was dead – sorry!  I should also mention that they don’t look so pretty once you take them out of the pan – but never judge a book by it’s cover or a Cinna-Mallow Roll by it’s flatness or brokeness – they are Good Eats!!!  I should also mention that clean-up can be a breeze if you immediately soak the pans in really hot water for about 5 minutes.  This gives you plenty of time to pour a glass of milk and shove a roll in your mouth before the water even starts to cool!  Enjoy!

You’ll Need –

2 cans of Crescent Rolls (I shop at Aldi’s and they’re really cheap there)

2 Tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Cup Sugar

Large Marshmallows*

1/2 Stick of Butter

Baking Spray

Muffin Pans

Pastry brush

* I recommend leaving the Marshmallows out a day or two so they get hard – they hold up better while baking.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl – set aside.  I recommend putting a little of the sugar mixture in a separate bowl for sprinkling on top of the rolls.  Spray the muffin pans with a baking spray or lightly grease with Crisco or butter.  Melt 1/2 stick of butter.  Separate the crescents and using your hands press the dough so it’s a bit thinner and wider, then brush one side with butter.  Dip 2 marshmallows in the butter then roll them in the sugar mixture and place them on the roll at the wide end.  Roll the crescent starting at the wide end and tuck the points underneath and place in the muffin pan.  Do this for all the crescents and when they are all in the pan, brush the tops with butter and sprinkle with the sugar mixture.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.  The marshmallows will melt creating a gooey mixture, let them cool in the pan for just a minute or so, then using a butter knife loosen the roll and carefully lift to a plate. They are so good if you eat them while they are still warm – mmmm.

I’ve thought about some variations, like sprinkling mini chocolate baking chips on the crescents before adding the marshmallows – or finely chopping pecans and raisins and adding them before the marshmallows – mmm….gonna try them out tomorrow!

Jesus, Lover Of My Soul

It’s all about You, Jesus

And all this is for You

For Your glory and Your fame

It’s not about me

As if You should do things my way

You alone are God

And I surrender to Your ways

Jesus, lover of my soul

All consuming fire is in Your gaze

Jesus, I want You to know

I will follow You all my days

For no one else in history is like You

And history itself belongs to You

Alpha and Omega, You have loved me

And I will share eternity with You

I see Angels

Go to fullsize image                                  

I see Angels watching over me, high up in the sky, I see Angels.

I see Angels watching over me as I sleep at night, I see Angels.

My spirit longs to fly and be high up in the  Go to fullsize imagesky, with the Angels.


Flying higher, flying faster, Go to fullsize imageclimbing up to meet my Savior.

Flying higher toward my Savior, I long to be free.

Go to fullsize imageI am free, because Jesus gave His life for me.  Jesus has set me free.

He placed my feet upon solid ground, Go to fullsize imageI once was lost but now I’m found.

I’m already free, I’m already free.

Jesus I long to fly, take me higher through the sky. 

Take me higher, let me fly.

You gave me wings, Your Word is my wings. 

Watch me fly, watch me fly. 

Higher and high, higher and high, Go to fullsize imageup through the sky.

Angels, watch me fly.

A Seed

Years ago the Lord gave me this poem, His Word, which I shared with my church.  While going through some papers I came across it again so I’m sharing it with you today.  It is just as relevant today as it was then.  Take care and God bless you.

A Seed

I’ve planted in each of you a seed, that does not grow through worldly deeds.

It needs the water that brings forth life, the water that washes away sorrow and strife.

It grows each day it’s fed My Word, and nurtured through the love of a shepard.

This seed is rooted in My love.  I’ve sent it down from up above.

Through it’s vines flow the Blood of Christ, each vine contains the source of life.

The fruit it bares depends on you,  the things you say, the things you do.

Treasure this gift and you will receive, more than your mind could ever conceive.

I’ve planted in each of you a seed.  A living, breathing piece of Me.
