Yesterday morning, something happened which makes me sad, that I shed tears. Am I being over-sensitive or my hormone is not stable at that moment, I just don't know. What I knew I was sad.
I lost one of my Vision pot! Yeah you may say, it's only a pot mama. You can always buy another one to replace it. But no, this is not JUST a pot. It was my wedding present from my beloved late aunt. And how long have I been happily married? 24 years. So has that pot been with us. It is even older than my first born! Though I take it with open heart, but the sadness is still there...
The night before, I had placed this plastic bottle of salted fish in the cupboard. Next to it was this small glass bottle. I must have not put the plastic bottle properly that when I opened the cupboard yesterday morning, it toppled and knocked the glass bottle out of the cupboard. And where should the GLASS bottle landed? Yeah right on the back of my Vision pot, hence the crack! Why wasn't it the other way round? If the glass bottle had knocked over the plastic bottle and the plastic bottle is the one which knocks my Vision, then I will still have my pot with me today. Well, that's fate. Accept it because there is nothing I can do...
I told my hubby and kids about it on our family whatsapp, and of course adding a bit of drama into it (:D:D:D) as well. My girl said, no worry mom, dad will replace it with a new one. Which dad quickly replied OK. But mama said, well, I had enough. No more Vision Pots now. Whatever's left, I will keep for now. I will re-use the ones I've been using before I took out the Vision set. Why do i sound so traumatized? Because I have lost THREE Vision Pots in less than a year's time! That's why! Huwaaaaaaaa.......
EASY SUPER SOFT CINNAMON ROLLS

Source : The Comfort of Cooking
For the Dough:
1/4 ounce package yeast (I used Saf-Instant)
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup warm water (I used iced water)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
For the Filling:
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
For the Glaze:
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons milk
For the Dough:
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.
In a large bowl, or the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Pour in yeast mixture. Mix in remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until dough is easy to handle. If mixture appears too dry, add 1 tsp. water at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Knead dough in your mixer with the dough hook, or by hand on lightly floured surface, for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in a well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.*
Once doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle.
For the Filling and Baking:
Combine melted butter, cinnamon and sugar, spreading all over dough. Beginning at the longest (15 inch) side, roll up dough and pinch edges together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices.
Coat a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the Glaze:
Mix butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Whisk in milk 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency. (If you like a thinner consistency glaze, add more milk.) Spread over slightly cooled rolls.
Have a nice day!
