OXO’s Tis’ the Season for Freezin’ campaign is all about the make-ahead recipe. And those are at the top of my list during the holiday season. Even more so this year, since I’m spending all my time learning the ropes of mommyhood instead of baking things up in the kitchen.

With OXO’s Glass Bakeware, side dishes and desserts are as easy as 1-2-3. Just gather your ingredients, store overnight, and bake the next day. One of my new favorites to make in their 1.6-Quart Loaf Dish is this Eggnog-Glazed Cinnamon Roll Monkey Loaf. Whether it’s breakfast Christmas morning or brunch with the girlfriends, everyone is sure to love the warm, holiday flavors in this dish!

OXO’s Glass 1.6 Qt Loaf Baking Dish and Glass 9″ Pie Plate are great for homemade breads, pound cakes, pies, quiches and monkey bread, like this one! They are both made of thermal shock resistant borosilicate glass and can go from freezer to oven without the need to thaw. The handles and rim are sized for hands big & small, which make it easy to transport dishes from oven to countertop or table. The pie plate is perfect to use when coating the cinnamon roll pieces with cinnamon & sugar!

The natural boar bristles on OXO’s 1″ Pastry Brush pick up and hold glaze, egg wash or sauces really well. The heads are angled to keep them elevated and prevent drips on the countertop, and the handle is soft and comfortable, letting you brush delicate pastries with ease.

Eggnog-Glazed Cinnamon Roll Monkey Loaf

Ingredients

  • 2 (17.5 oz) cans Pillsbury Grands! cinnamon rolls, reserve the frosting
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 c granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 c eggnog

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat OXO's 1.6-Quart Loaf Baking Dish with cooking spray and set aside. Combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in OXO's 9-inch Glass Pie Plate and set this aside, as well.

Open and separate the cinnamon rolls, cutting each roll into 4 pieces. Dip each piece into the melted butter, then roll in the cinnamon-nutmeg-sugar mixture. Arrange in the prepared loaf pan, packing the pieces into two layers.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the loaf is golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes. While cooling, combine the eggnog in a small bowl with the cinnamon roll icing from the packages, whisking until smooth. Brush this on the loaf while warm. Break apart and serve!

Berry Blast Smoothie

by Jessica on December 14, 2016

Berry Blast Smoothie | http://mybakingheart.com #Mockmill

Now that I’m no longer eating for three, it’s definitely time to get back on the wagon… the healthy wagon, that is. I didn’t gain as much as you’d think, being pregnant with twins. In those first few weeks postpartum, I lost almost all of that baby weight. Hopefully, the last few pounds that are lingering around will fall off once I get back to running and eating like a normal person. Three meals a day sounds so lovely! But, with such a short timeframe to put any kind of meal together, it’s normally a sandwich here, a smoothie there, etc.

So, when Mockmill delivered their beautiful grain mill on my doorstep, I had so many ideas about what I wanted to do with it.

This gorgeous and compact mill has a true ceramic-bonded corundum stone, which produces very fine flour and will not wear down with continued use. It easily adjusts flour grades, so even a coarse flour is achievable. The outer design is sleek, smooth and so pretty, that a lot of cooks and bakers simply leave it docked on until it’s time to use another attachment. Which is perfect, because preparing the flour you need becomes a simple, quick action. And if you’re a new mommy like me, this is probably the greatest selling point. With two small babies, I can no longer run out to the store on a whim. If I’m out of a staple like flour, its wonderful to have the option to quickly make my own!

With this mill, I ground steel cut oats to a fine meal. You might think it odd, but the steel cut oat meal added just the right amount of texture and once blended with the yogurt, berries and juice, it completely filled me up. Which was great, because not long after I’d had my last sip, it was back to bottle washing and diaper changing!

Very Berry Chocolate Smoothie

If left up to my own devices, these brands would probably never end up on my radar. Like Healthy Skoop, a plant-based, all-in-one nutritional shake mix. Each serving touts the antioxidant equivalent to four cups of […]
