On Sunday, February 7th, 2021 is Super Bowl LV the Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s will be playing the Kansas City Chiefs in Tampa, Fl. This year will be the first time a winner of the playoffs, Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s, will be playing in their home stadium (Raymond James Stadium) for Super Bowl.
Where there is a football game there must be great food! For Super Bowl LV (55) we have searched for the delicious appetizers, desserts and yummy dishes you can conger up and enjoy. The first on our list is a long time favorite Buffalo Chicken Wings…
While we do not have the changing colors of leaves here in Florida, the cool weather is always a welcome sign that Fall is here and Hurricane season will soon be over.
We look forward to the up coming holidays, and while they may be different this year, with so many changes brought on by Covid-19, we will be in the kitchen preparing our favorite dishes none the less.
There is just something about the aroma of Beef Stew, Chicken and Dumplings, Chili and Pumpkin butter with other wonderful recipes we tend to forgo during the hot summers that are now already on our minds.

These are fabulous! Tried and tested, this recipe is everything Monique from Diva’s Can Cook said it would be… A cross between a cinnamon roll and a cinnamon bun, this recipe puts out just the right melt in your mouth cinnamon bun/roll soft texture and full of flavor.
Flour: When mixing the dough pay attention to number 7 on the recipe instructions. You may not need all the flour or you may need a bit more. Add in small amounts until you get that consistency, it makes a difference.
Has the dough risen enough, too much? To test to see if your dough had risen, simply poke two fingers into the resting dough after about an hour. Do this just enough to make small holes on the surface. If the holes do not fill in, then your dough has rested enough. Do the same for the second rest. Just poke a small hole with your finger into one of the cut rolls in the pan and if the hole remains they are ready to go into the oven.
White sugar instead of brown… Monique calls for brown sugar in the filling, we had no brown sugar or molasses to make brown sugar so we used white sugar and cinnamon. Still came out delicious.
No Buttermilk on hand? – Very important ingredient that can be substituted, but not with regular milk.
Find out how to make a buttermilk substitute here if you do not have any on hand. We used sour cream and thinned it down a bit with milk. Since she calls for 1/3 cup, simply added sour cream to the measure cup and thinned down with about a TBS of milk.
So here we go! Time to make Monique’s fluffy cinnamon rolls!
Share Valentine’s Day by volunteering in your community with co workers, family and friends. Take a little time for this day, to bake up some Valentine cookies and cakes or you could purchase store bought treats and give them out with a special tag.
Take the family or a few friends and visit a nursing home in your area. Hand out flowers (a Carnation for each person) and Valentine cards. This does not have to be expensive and it will bring so much joy. (Call ahead to find out how many flowers and cards you will need and make an appointment.)
Visit someone who is under the weather with Valentines Day treats and offer to run errands for them.
Get your family and/or friends together and celebrate with a mini tea party. Serve hot tea and cookies. Have pretty paper, glue, scissors, paper dollies available to make old fashioned valentines day cards.
Volunteer at a soup kitchen for a few hours, washing dishes or serving up a meal will be appreciated.
