Writerly Wednesday ~~ Why We Need Editors

I just read a nice blog post over at Harvey Stanbrough's place, and thought some of you might be interested in the topic of editorial assistance. (And if you haven't signed up for his blog yet, you're missing out.)

Scroll down if you missed last week's post. If you've been thinking about some outrageous promo idea for Kat's new book, you can leave your contest entry in a comment today and/or at her blog. Prizes and a signed copy of SECRET GRACES await your suggestions. While at Kat's bloggy home, check out her excellent post on the Reader-Writer waltz, and get updated information on her blog tour stops.

Hope you are all making splendid progress on your WIPs and aren't in a serious rut of non-activity like me. *smile* How about sharing a wee progress report?

Now...go forth and write on!

Tasty Tuesday ~~ New Twist on Cinnamon Rolls

All this extended cold weather has given me a hankering for something good in the baking department. Hope you enjoy this new version on the standard cinnamon roll!

If you've cooked something good share. :)

Cinnamon Biscuits

5 cups baking mix (Jiffy, Bisquick, Pioneer)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup melted margarine or butter
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
4 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Turn onto surface dusted with baking mix. Knead until smooth. Form a large (@ 3 inch diameter) log. Slice one inch rounds and place in baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 16 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly. (Makes 24 large biscuits that taste almost like scones.)

Orange Buttercream Glaze

2 cups Confectioners sugar
1/4 cup melted butter (4 Tbsp)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 Tbsp. Half & Half (or milk)
1/3 cup orange juice

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour over warm cinnamon biscuits. Good any time of day or night!
