Butterscotch Breakfast Rolls

Every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning (and vacation if we are in a rented condo, etc.) I make butterscotch sweet rolls and my family is craaaazy about them. Jordan just walked in the door moments ago from spending the night at a friends house and said, "Mom...you have to start making two pans of these rolls instead of just one...there aren't enough!" I could probably make several pans and they would still say they aren't enough. It's the sort of thing you could just keep eating and eating. Try these...I promise, you'll like them.




BUTTERSCOTCH SWEET ROLLS
1 box or bag of frozen dinner rolls. (You can use the kind that is in frozen dough form, or the ones I prefer are Sister Schuberts frozen yeast rolls. When using Sister Schuberts they are already pre-baked and you just take them out of the freezer and they quickly warm up. Using Sister Schuberts I make the rolls the morning of.  If you use the ones that are in frozen dough form you have to prepare the recipe the night before, but it's still very easy to do.)

Ingredients
1 bag/box rolls
1 small box of butterscotch pudding (the kind you cook - NOT instant)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 stick melted butter

If using frozen dough rolls get them out the night before. Spray a 9 x 13 pan  or grease it with oil. Place frozen rolls in the pan. (I usually use Parkerhouse frozen dough rolls when doing the night before.) Mix the other three ingredients in a bowl and spoon it over the rolls.  If doing the overnight method, place a kitchen towel over the bundt pan and keep it in the oven (cold - not turned on) all night long. When you wake up in the morning, take the towel off, and turn the oven on to 325 degrees. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until it looks done. Don't let rolls burn. Let them get just lightly brown and cook just long enough for them to be done on the inside. Take rolls out of oven, turn over onto a plate and serve. (You'll need to eat them with a fork as they are real "gooey" but so yum!)

Now, as I said before, my first choice is to make these rolls using Sister Schuberts brand.  They are much better that way in my opinion.   If using Sister Schubert's rolls, they come in a bag of 10, and  I take them out the morning of, and put them in a 9 x 13 pan.  I mix the other three ingredients and spoon it on top, bake a few minutes, then turn the rolls over and make sure they are totally coated in the gooey coating.  Then after about 10-15 minutes take out and serve immediately.

So good!

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no
