Creamy Caramel Crunch Rolls



Is there anything better than Christmas morning breakfast?  We sure do love enjoying treats by the tree in the morning. They seem to taste even better if you are lucky enough to have snow falling down. This is a tasty breakfast to please everyone, and drive them crazy with the smell as it cooks.

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, cut up
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 16 ounce loaves frozen sweet roll dough, thawed
1/3 cup soy nut butter or peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped honey-roasted soy nuts or honey-roasted peanuts

1. Lightly grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. For caramel mixture, in a small saucepan combine the 1 cup brown sugar, the butter, whipping cream, and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared baking pan.
2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each loaf of thawed dough to an 18×6-inch rectangle. Spread each dough rectangle with half of the soy nut butter or peanut butter, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. In a small bowl combine the 1/2 cup brown sugar and the cinnamon. Stir in nuts. Sprinkle half of the nut mixture over each dough rectangle. Starting from a long side, roll up each rectangle into a spiral; pinch dough to seal seams. Cut each spiral into eight slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on top of caramel mixture. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (45 to 60 minutes).
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake about 40 minutes or until tops of rolls are golden and edges are browned. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover rolls with foil after 30 minutes of baking. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm.

Denna Shoe from Harley-Davidson Footwear


By, Beth Folkerts.

I grew up a farm girl, one who knew her way around a camera and art studio, which dubbed me the ‘artsy girl’. I have always been known as someone who tries to infuse my own personal style each and every time I step out the door. About a year and a half ago, when I joined the Klock Werks team as their in-house graphic designer, I was faced with quite the conundrum: How do I infuse my own personal artsy style and still embrace the motorcycle lifestyle?

As soon as I spotted the Denna shoe, I knew I had to try them and that they would be perfect for me. Dubbed the ‘After Riding Shoe’ by Harley Davidson, they are just that. They are compact enough that you can easily store these in your saddlebag, or purse, and slip right into them once you have arrived at your destination. An added bonus to putting these shoes on when arriving at your destination is the comfort they offer, the design of the shoe seems to offer a bit more room for your toes to wiggle than other traditional riding boots. The ballet flat style of this shoe allows you to dress them up or down – creating effortless coordination with any outfit. The bold Harley Davidson emblazoned brass buckle on the toe is the perfect statement to any outfit.

Visit  Harley-Davidson to check them out up close and locate a dealer near you that has the Denna shoe on the shelf.

Fresh Tomato Pizza with Oregano and Mozzarella


2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 sprig fresh oregano
1 clove garlic, sliced
All-purpose flour
1 1 pound ball fresh pizza dough, at room temperature
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup baby arugula (optional)
2 ounces very thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into strips (optional)

1. Place a 15x10x1-inch baking pan on the lowest rack of the oven. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
2. For sauce, in a food processor combine cherry tomatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the oregano, and garlic. Process just until tomatoes are coarsely chopped (do not puree). Set sauce aside.
3. Lightly sprinkle flour on an 18-inch-long piece of parchment paper. On the paper roll pizza dough into a 14×8-inch rectangle. Spread the sauce over the dough, leaving a 2-inch border around edges.
4. Carefully remove preheated pan from the oven. Place pizza (still on parchment) into the pan and return to the lowest rack of the oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Top with cheese. Bake about 5 minutes more or until pizza is crisp on the bottom. Sprinkle with sea salt. If desired, top with baby arugula and prosciutto.
