We need the cute! Gotta have that cute!

I’m feeling a skosh (<—had to look it up. Still not sure that’s spelled right. Merriam-Webster wouldn’t steer me wrong, would they?) out of sorts today. Could be a pie hangover. Or it could be number 19. Either way, the antidote to the out-or-sortness has to be cuteness.  Has to be. 

Let’s see,  we have puppy cuteness-


And kitty cuteness-


And hamster cuteness-


Charley cuteness-


And my son’s artwork cuteness-


I’m not sure if all that cuteness did it.  It might be time to pull out the big guns.

Dinner roll cuteness-

Recipe from Taste of Home magazine


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 1-1/4 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted butter, optional


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water with 1 teaspoon sugar.
  • Add the milk, butter, eggs, salt, 3 cups flour and remaining sugar;
  • beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft
  • dough.


  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about
  • 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the
  • top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.


  • Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in
  • half; shape each portion into 12 balls. Place rolls in two greased
  • 13-in. x 9-in. baking pans; cover and let rise until doubled, about
  • 30 minutes.


  • Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Lightly
  • brush with melted butter if desired. Place pans on wire racks. Serve
  • warm. Yield: 2 dozen.


Yep, I think that may have done it.  I feel better already!

May the cuteness cure what ails you too.
