Yummy B'Day Present & Giveaways

For my birthday, last week, my momma gave me a Zojiroshi Home Bakery Supreme Breadmaker, Model BB-CEC20!   This breakmader ROCKS!   I broke this bad boy out last night for the 1st time and knew exactly what I was going to make.  Cinnamon Rolls!  

Ain't she purdy!

Broke out the instruction manual, which I might add was very involved and sat myself down to watch the instructional DVD that came with it!

Don't pay attention to the lovely shadow of my HEAD! lol

I will admit I am not the best baker so I really needed to pay attention to the details here!

After watching the video, I got out all the ingredients for the Basic Butter Roll Dough (which is the basis for the Cin. Rolls)

Wala!  After the 1 hour and 35 mins here is what I had. DOUGH....hmm...what to do with it...

Cut the dought into 2 equal pieces and froze one!  Rolled this out....

Smeared the butter on, then poured the brown sugar and cinnamon on....rolled it up and cut...

I had to let them rise for a while....covered them too...

Baked at 375 for 15 mins and there you have it!

I made the easiest and most delicious frosting (we all agreed it was just like Cindy's Cinnamon Roll frosting)   and there you have it!

No more Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns for this family! lol.....Can't wait to try the other recipes!

Bread machines are the best thing ever! Those looked delish. We did cinnamon rolls in the breadmaker last weekend but I think they would have been better with that frosting! Yum

Those cinnamon rolls look delicious! Cinnamon rolls are one of my families favorites. I have been looking into getting a bread machine myself. That one looks awesome! I love that it comes with an instructional DVD. It is easier to see how something works rather than read how something works. Great birthday gift!

That's cool!
I used to have a bread machine, but it broke or something. I'm hoping to get myself a nice kitchenaid stand mixer soon.
I like to use The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon roll recipe, it's easy & doesn't take a lot of time ; )
(for anyone who doesn't have a bread machine available)

Ok -- would you believe I have a BBCCX20 that has been sitting in my basement in storage for the past year? My father-in-law didn't want it anymore and brought it over to me. At the time I was like "oh great, another thing to hang around the kitchen", but recently I have been reading all these posts about homemade bread, so today my hubby brought it up (along with the instruction manual - no nifty DVD for me, sorry) and maybe this week I shall investigate. Any tips?

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
