  1. So enjoy reading your This & That Blog. Enjoy your recipes and the scenery from Utah. Have a great day! Melody Andres

  2. I made the “best cinnamon rolls” the other day. Everyone loved them. I hadn’t worked with that much dough in a long time. They were huge. I think the dough was lightly too thick. Any suggestions on how I could make the dough thinner & rolls smaller?

    P.S. I really like Ur web site. I am glad I found it.

    1. I am glad everyone loved them. You can roll the dough out a little thinner and roll them up tighter. Also make sure you don’t let them over rise. I hope that helps! Glad you found us too:)

  3. Love your emails!! I lived in Sandy Utah 12 years ago, such a beautiful place!! I now reside on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
    Do you have any low carb recipes and gluten free recipes?
    Have a blessed day!!

  4. Maria, I tried the mascara from Amazon that you recommended in one of the latest This and That’s. It’s wonderful! Goes on easily, no clumps, and I love that it’s cruelty free. Thanks for the recommendation!
