Top It Off with Topper

Some time ago, I  disliked movie series. The majority of the time, the second movie is an awful abomination put on this Earth to just swindle you out of your hard earned cash. This is not the case in 1-The Thin Man Series and 2-The Topper Series. I can't believe I haven't mentioned Topper before. Did you know it stars one of my favorite actors-Asta the dog. Yeppers, it's true.

To start off the series is Topper. Filmed in 1937, it stars several wonderful actors such as Cary Grant and Constance Bennett. The story is about a henpecked bank president who works for the  fun loving Grant and Bennett. Here's  the catch is that they are ghosts and he is the only one that can see them. They are stuck in limbo until they correct all their bad deeds with good ones. Roland Young plays Cosmo Topper but the film is definitely stolen by his clueless wife, Billie Burke.

1938 saw the return of Cosmo Topper and his favorite ghost Constance. Unfortunately Cary Grant did not make a return but we do get to see Asta. This time around a friend of Mrs. Topper convinces her that she needs to divorce Cosmo. Constance helps her favorite Toppy win back the love of his life and make her way to heaven.

A few years later, in 1941 Roland Young revives his role as Topper but this time Constance Bennett has made it to heaven and he is bothered by another blonde bombshell, Joan Blondell. We add a little mystery to the plot with Topper helping Joan's character find her murder.

I just adore this series. It's fun, lighthearted and all around great for laughs. Hey, just like me! Anyhoo, check out these great movies. You will thank me later.

Salivating Saturday

Early this week I made the best chocolate chip cinnamon sticky bun that you will ever put in your mouth. I am not kidding. This sweet concoction made the angels wept. I could hear trumpets of joy around me when they came out of the oven. Unfortunately I can't come to everyone's house and deliver them to you, so I decided to share the recipe. How I wish this was my own doing but it is actually from the Pioneer Woman. Have you ever seen her blog? How in the world does she do it all? I want to hate her but I admire her too much-plus, she's so damn nice!'s the recipe. Enjoy!

This is a basic cinnamon roll recipe. You can add all sorts of flavors to it. Fruit, chocolate, nuts, less cinnamon, more sugar for stickier buns.

4 cups milk (you can use whole but we used non fat-gotta watch that waist!)
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Canola Oil
9 cups All-purpose Flour
2 packages (4 1/2 Teaspoons) Active Dry Yeast
1 Tablespoon  Salt
1 teaspoon  Baking Soda
1 teaspoon  Baking Powder
1 stick Butter
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 cup Brown Sugar
½ cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1-½ cup Chocolate Chips
A light dusting of cinnamon

1 package 8 Ounce Cream Cheese
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1 stick Butter, Softened
1 cup  Milk
2-½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
¾ teaspoons Salt


Mix milk, 1 cup sugar, and canola oil in a pot. Heat until very warm but not boiling. Allow to cool until slightly warmer than lukewarm.

Sprinkle yeast over the surface of the liquid, then add in 8 cups flour. Stir gently until totally combined. Mixture will be very wet and sticky. Cover with a tea towel, keep in a draft-free place, and allow to sit for 1 hour. I used the big pot I mixed the milk in and covered it with the lid but you can also use the tea towel method.

After 1 hour, add in an additional cup of flour, as well as the salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix until combined. Refrigerate dough, covered, until you need it. (Refrigerating the dough helps make it easier to handle.) I didn't refrigerate, but I kind of wish I did, it was very sticky to work with. I would just refrigerate it for about 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread melted butter in the bottom of pie pans or 9 x 13-inch baking dishes.This is not the same butter you will use in the actual recipe.

Divide dough in half. The other half of the dough, you can put in the fridge or the freezer to make another batch some other day. Turn the other half of the dough onto a floured surface. Roll into a large rectangle, about 24 inches wide by 10 to 12 inches deep. Add vanilla to melted butter, then drizzle mixture all over the surface of the dough. Use fingers to spread evenly. Mix sugar and salt and sprinkle it evenly over the butter. Follow with the brown sugar, cinnamon, and  chocolate chips. This was the hardest part! The butter wanted to spread everywhere! If you have two people, that's better, one person can spread the butter, the other can pour the sugar mixtures. The sugar will soak up the butter.

Beginning at the side furthest from you, roll dough toward you until it’s in the shape of a tight log. Pinch the edges to seal. Slice into 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick rolls and lay, cut side down, in buttered baking dishes. Allow to rise for 20 minutes, then place in oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until deep golden brown on top.

Make the icing: Mix 1 stick butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt in an electric mixer or until smooth and pourable.

Remove rolls from oven and allow to sit five minutes before drizzle icing all over the rolls. Be sure to get the icing all around the edges and covering the surface so they’ll be nice and moist!

* I did not make the icing. The rolls were just fine and just sweet enough on their own. Maybe the next batch I make I will whip up the icing. 

These cinnamon rolls are seriously the absolute BEST ever! Even half of the dough made quite a bit so we ended up wrapping the individually and freezing them, then when we want a quick treat, we can just pop one in the toaster oven. Oh yeah, don't even get me started on the sugary goo at the bottom of the pan. Seriously, when you bite into will think you died and went to heaven! Now if you will excuse me, my mouth is watering just writing this! I need a bun fix!

Feel Good Friday!

 Fall is finally here and I couldn't be any happier! Let's see if I can can make you just as happy.

I first saw this super cute stitching when I did the Fall Challenge for Craftster. One of my favorite things about Fall is definitely that it becomes sweater weather. I think SheenaRamone would agree with me.

I LOVE decorating cakes and cookies. Most of my stuff I get from Wilton Decorating. Well, now you can enjoy in my decorating bliss. The Wilton website not only shows you great examples of decorating but also tells you exactly what you need to achieve greatness and a  step by step process.

Because the days are getting cooler, Pete is getting chillier. I really think he needs this sweater. Okay, maybe nothing that flashy.  Little Pampered Pet has great sweaters, costumes and treats for your little beast. (No puppy was harmed in the making of this sweater, but maybe a little humiliated....)

Tonight is nice and chilly, OMP is cooking up some popcorn and we have settled in for some quality snuggling and awesomely bad movies. Maybe this weekend I will try to find some yummy cider. Happy fall from the Pedersen household-lets hope that it includes lots of candy corn, warm cozy fires and just a touch of a chill on your cheek.

The Only Thing We Have to Fear.......

Today I was feeling REALLY needy. I desperately wanted someone at 5am to talk to. I wanted them to listen to my rants about feeling down, being angry, and that I really really wanted a coconut popsicle. Everyone in the house was asleep. I couldn't even bother the dogs without getting a snarl. Then I started to wonder why I was feeling so needy and wanting so much attention. It wasn't the fact that I really wanted to talk to someone, I was just feeling very fearful about what lies ahead of me. I really wanted someone just to take away my problems and tell me under no certain terms that the future was solid. In reality, I know that the future is never solid and is forever changing, but it made me think more about fear and how it plays out in my world.

Fear can grip us as a whole community. It can make us hate and blame others for changes that we feel are out of our control. It can cause extreme feelings that make clearly rational people do nutty things. Fear always needs a scapegoat. It can freeze everything around us.

Just as fear can make us hate, it can also give us something to fight for, a challenge. This is the way I am choosing to look at it. When I began to get scared about my financial future, I instantly go into creative mode. I start to think of ways to pay bills, ways to create a positive environment around me so I don't get stressed. I think of ways to be resourceful. Fear also allows me the "I'll be damned" feeling. You know this feeling...I'll be damned if I let this get me down, defeat me, or allow it to scare me anymore. I begin to feel empowered by the strength that I sometimes forget I have.

The best way too take on fear is to not take it on at all. Now before you shake you head and say "Pam, what are you talking about?". Think about it. If you didn't take on fear but took on a new adventure-how great would that be? You would be embarking on something completely new to you. It's all about perception. You can stand frozen with fear or you can come out doing high leg kicks ready for that adventure.

Now, I don't want to be all preachy and all "warm group hug, wind beneath my wings" on you. I'm not going to make you sit in a circle and pass around a talking stick, but what I am going to do is tell you that embracing your fears, facing your fears and then letting them go is something everyone should do. Don't worry about what people think if you want to quit your computer job and join the circus. Let go of  the fear of acting your age. Say goodbye to the fear of no control-it never looked good on your anyway. Say hello to a new adventure-you might be pleasantly surprised at what you find. It could be a new friend, a new thought or even a new you. I feel much better and I'm gonna go get that coconut popsicle.

Tie One On Tuesday!

 Happy Fall everyone! I can't believe that it is officially here at 8:09pm Pacific Standard Time-that is cause for celebration. What better way to celebrate than with a tasty autumn beer.

Now, I know a lot of people don't like fruity or flavored beers but Dogfish Head Punkin Ale is exceptional.Tastes of pumpkin and hints of brown sugar make this beer more like a pumpkin pie than something you find at a keg party on a Friday night. This beer can be a bit too sweet for some but pairing it with some salty goodness balances out the flavors and gets your savory and sweet on.

A lot of people really put down Samuel Adams, saying that it's too commercial or that the owner and his commercials are so annoying (okay, the latter might have been just me) but the Samuel Adams Octoberfest is a wonderful blend of toffee and honey roasted nuts. It's a very easy to drink lager that has just the right bite that will leave you begging for more.

Rogue Mocha Porter is dark, thick and tasty. It's like an wonderful cup of coffee with a nice alcohol taste. Although is smells very hoppy, it goes down as smooth as a Barry White song in the back of a Camero. It starts off with a sweet smokey taste and ends with a little bit of a tingly tart taste....just like the back of a Camero.

As the days get shorter, your thirst gets bigger. These are just a few little treats to wet your whistle. Check out your local breweries to see what seasonal beverages they have on tap, you may find a new favorite.

Scrappy Dog Sunday!

Oh Ms. Lola. Did you know that you have my heart?

And did you know that we have pretty much the same smile and the same keen fashion sense?

Help me Rhonda! The leg is killing me....

You can get a little bit crazy

But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Tie One On Tuesday!

It's that time of year again. Time to get out your lederhosen, wash that 22 ounce stein and brush up on your polka moves. It's Oktoberfest! So, tune up your air accordion and let's celebrate.

I don't think I need to tell you that the drink of choice during Oktoberfest is beer, but let's say beer isn't your thing but you still want to partake in the Polka line dancing. Well, this liquid courage is right up your ally. A Black Forest cocktail is so yummy! You could drink it for dessert, or breakfast, or before that big Alpine horn solo.

Black Forest Cocktail
1 oz creme de cacao1 oz cherry liqueur
1 oz cream

Shake ingredients together and pour into glass. Add a little more cream as a floater, then add a cherry.

Still need a little courage do to that chicken dance, well look no further than a German Chocolate Cake Shot
People swear this taste just like the real thing. I think the lime part might have been thought up on a dare.

German Chocolate Cake Shot
1 oounce vodka
1 ounce Frangelico
1 slice lime
1 tsp of sugar
Put 1 shot vodka and 1 shot Frangelico into a  glass. Dip slice of lime in sugar. Bite into lime and while holding the juice in your mouth, shoo tFrangelico and vodka shot. Drink it all down at one time.
Someone please let me know how this goes for you, I'm dying to know.

Finally, the drink that was named after a drunken "accidental" pinch of Helga's cheeks-and I think you know which ones I'm talking about

The Angry German
 1 part Ameretto
1 part Blackberry Liquer
2 parts fresh lime juice
Crush ice
1 dash salt
1 part Jagermeister
Mix together with crushed ice in a glass and garnish with mint leaves

 Okay my little Hansel and Gretel, tip back a few of these little concoctions, dust off your fondue pot, and get your yodeling voice primed and ready.I hear there is an opening for the first chair in the Oompah pah band. Until next time my little Hassenfeffers!

The Leading Man

I've felt under the weather the past couple of days and although a 102 degree fever is not fun, catching up on my favorite movies from one of my favorite actors is a blast.

I adore William Powell. I have mentioned him several times with love for the Thin Man movies but he starred in others that were equally great.

The Great Ziegfeld showcases Powell as a the wonderful Flor Ziegfeld, the famed producer of the over the top stage shows. The story tells the rags to riches to rags life of Ziegfeld. The music scenes are beautiful displays in filmography. The movie won three Oscars, including Best Dance and Best Leading Lady.

Love Crazy is a fun little romp with Powell. He stars with Myrna Loy as a couple celebrating their fourth anniversary. After a series of misunderstanding, the couple splits. William just can't live without Myrna and decides to get her back. He will do anything, including acting insane to win back his bride. This film has all the chemistry that Powell and Loy have together. If you love the Thin Man series, this is not one to be missed.

We see Powell reprise his role as Ziegfeld, even if it's only for a few minutes, in Ziegfeld Follies. This film showcases some of Ziegfeld's greatest finds such as Lucille Ball, Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. It's a wonderful musical history of Ziegfeld. The scenery is a star in itself.

William Powell was a magnificent actor who started his career during the silent movie era and gained even more success when talkies were invented. His personal as well as professional life proved to be an amazing story filled with beautiful leading ladies such as Jean Harlow and Carol Lombard. I have yet to see a bad movie from him. He was sophisticated, suave and his sense of humor brilliant, what more could you ask for in a leading man?

Scrappy Dog Sunday!

As you all know, I am a huge fan of the terrier, specifically Jack Russel Terrier. They are compact little bundles of evil wrapped up in cute furry coats. I mean this in the most sincere form of love. My girls know they are beast but one flash of those big brown eyes or one wrinkle of the nose and that's it, I am putty in their paws.
When I read about this wonderful rescue on the Terrierman blog, I knew I had to pass along the cause. Cold Noses, Warm Hearts is a wonderful book about not only terriers but other little furry monsters that have taken over our hearts. The profits from this book go to Russell Rescue and I'm not talking about a measly 10% of the profits but a whopping 100% goes to  the rescue. You heard me right,100%! How did they do that? Well, two very awesome people ponied up the cash for printing so the rescue can get all the proceeds. Isn't that amazing?
Here's the deal. The book is only 11.95 and right now they are offering free shipping in the United States. Seriously-11.95 goes into rescuing a silly little Jack Russell. C'mon! You can afford 11.95! Buy a couple of them and give them as gifts. You will be doing a great service. Lola, Jujube and even Pete will be forever in your debt and if you are lucky, smack a kiss on you.

So, do your part to help a rescue animal. Even if it's not this book, check out other rescues and see how your donation can help.

Salivating Saturday (A Day Late)

I know this is a day late but I was under the weather yesterday and couldn't post. I didn't want anyone to miss out on this recipe so I decided to post it today. 

WARNING! If you are not a meat eater, stop reading this now. If you do indulge in the some meat eating action read on.

Today's recipe is brought to you by OMP.

Walter’s Good Burgers
 These are named after my favorite character from the Big Lebowski – Walter Sobchak and the famous line from Donny where he says – “Those are good burgers Walter.”

There really isn’t much measuring involved with this recipe. I pretty much put in the amounts I feel look right. If you want to add more cheese? Then more cheese! Bacon? Pile it on.

Okay, here goes.

1 pound of lean Hamburger (or enough for 3 or 4 good size patties).
Cheddar Cheese
Bacon (usually three or four pieces)
Worcestershire sauce
Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper

Drop your hamburger into a large mixing bowl. With this recipe I like to use the good stuff (93% fat free). You don’t want a lot of flare-ups on the grill with these babies!
Cook your bacon until it is nice and crispy. Pad oil off of and crumple up into a large mixing bowl w/raw burger
Shred your cheese and add that to the mix
I usually do three or four shakes from the Worcestershire bottle into the mix
Few shakes of the Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Now – get your fingers in there and mix it all up real well. You want the cheese and bacon incorporated with the burger.

Pat out your burgers and get ready to grill! Heat it up and throw them on.

The trick to making sure these are done? Watch the cheese in the mix. If it is getting liquidy and bubbling up, then it is time to flip. The same can be said about after the flip. Look for that cheesy goodness bubbling up out of the burger (mixed in with those delicious juices). Throw it on a bun, condimentize it and enjoy!

Feel Good Friday!

 When I grow up print by stephaniecorfee

We made it to Friday! Yahoo! No bones broken, no teeth chipped, no people to bail out of jail (man, I've been at work for too long this week). So it's time to kick back and relax. The weekend is upon us and we can enjoy the crisp weather tickling our noses.

Remember earlier this week when I told you I was going to mix things up a little on the blog. Well, Feel Good Friday is no exception. I am a HUGE fan of themes! So, I thought-why don't I make Fridays still feel good but with a different theme every week. Here is the first of many Feel Good Friday Theme Parties...Enjoy!

PS-See if you can guess the theme....

This is like a page out of my middle school diary. 
Stephanie Tillman is hysterical. She takes cute little animals and gives them crass personalities. The title of this piece is Middle School. If you like her stuff, she has an etsy shop-check it out!

When I was a kid, I wish my mom would have made me a lunch like this. I got a ham and mustard sandwich every day for a whole school year. I made the mistake of telling her that I liked ham and mustard.Every day....for a whole school year....ham and mustard....yes, I am serious. The good news is, you don't have to burn your kids out on the same old boring lunches, Just Bento has great recipes, the cutest products ever and great ideas on spicing up a boxed lunch.

As you know, I live in the Pacific Northwest where 6-9 months out of the year it is gray and rainy. I am always looking for a bag to brighten up those gray days and make me look super cute. This amazing green bag is perfect for books, laptops, extra set of clothes. The best part about it? It's affordable! Check out The Leather Store on Etsy for some beautiful bags at great prices.

I'm wondering if I can teach my little ones to read.  Knowing those monsters, they would check out books that were not age appropriate.

Are you feeling good? Feeling like you could conquer the world with cute bags and bentos? Well, get your sizzle on you little pieces of bacon! Have a fab weekend! Don't study or work too hard!

In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back.

Give a Hoot

Owls are cool. They can rotate their head 270 degrees, see in the dark, and have great depth perception. These owls, however are a little goofy, look annoyed and in shock. Kind of like me when I first wake up in the morning.

It's For Your Own Good

I've been sitting here for the past hour trying to figure out what to write tonight. Friendship? Strength? Speedbumps in life? Nothing...just a blank screen. My mind has been completely blank. So, instead of me telling you how you need to enjoy life, covet friendship in unusual places(not the bus station though...that's just creepy), and how you should jump over speedbumps like The Dukes of Hazard jumping over Rosco's patrol car-I'm giving you a cute picture of puppies.

No sir, I'm not gonna tell you that even when you are down, you are not out. Life may be tough, but you are tougher

I'm not even going to go into how certain people come into your life for certain reason and it is absolutely okay if they leave your life. You were able to share a wonderful moment that no one will ever be able to duplicate. Others stay in our lives for a lifetime and the older the relationship, the better it gets. I have a friend that I know I will be sitting on the beach, drinking cocktails with, laughing at all the young kids making fools of themselves. Nope, not going into all that-I'm just going to show you puppies.

Don't even get me started on problems can be viewed as adventures. Just take the picture of the puppies and be happy with it. It's for your own good.

Tie One On Tuesday!

School is back in session and I heard a collective`1 "YAHOO" from moms around the world. In order to honor back to school, I am ordering moms everywhere to pop open a bottle of bubbly, reach for that juice and make yourself a mimosa. After all, drinking just champagne at 8 in the morning, might be a bit much-even for me.

The Original Mimosa
One bottle of Champagne
2 ounces of Orange juice-if you have fresh, all the better
Crushed ice
Add ice to a champagne flute, then the orange juice and last the champagne.

You can substitute the orange juice for cranberry juice and you have a Poinsettia.

Oh hello Mama! We have a mimosa just for you!
Mama Mimosa
Orange Juice
2 Shots of Orange Liquer
1/2 cup raspberries
Pour the carton of chilled orange juice into a 3 quart pitcher and then add the full bottle of chilled Champagne or sparkling wine.
Add 2 shots of orange liquer and stir the orange juice, Champagne and orange liquer until thoroughly mixed. Just before serving add the raspberry ice(crumble fresh raspberries and place the crumbles into narrow ice cube trays, fill with water and freeze) to the pitcher and pour about 4 ounces of the mimosa mix into Champagne flutes or if you'd like to show off more of the raspberry ice pour the mimosa mix into regular wine glasses.

If you aren't into orange juice, you can add whatever juice you like. Just mix that baby up with some champagne and you will be on your way to happy Mimosa land.

Raise your glass and shout out your happiness now that those little ones that are back in school, learning to take over the world.  I will raise my glass with you as I am celebrating my little ones going back to school-doggy day care counts as school doesn't it?

Scrappy Dog Sunday!

I have a confession to make. OMP is not going to be happy with me. I've found a new man. He's short, dark and handsome.

See that little paw, I am officially wrapped around it.

OMP may think he has dibs on this little man

But in reality, he's all mine.

Sweet Saturday

Okay, first let me apologize for being MIA this week. It's been so crazy this week and I have been absolutely exhausted that I just haven't had a chance to keep up with everything. That being said, I made you something today. Let me begin by saying for the past three months I have pined over a donut baking pan. I saw one on another blog and wanted it so badly. I finally went out yesterday and bought one. So, today I have cake donuts to bribe you into forgiving me.

I tried the recipe that came with the pan and well, it wasn't as sweet as I wanted so I scoured a couple of sites to find one that was just perfect for you.

Baked Cake Donuts
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup oil (vegetable or canola)
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare donut panwith non-stick cooking spray, if you don't have a donut you can use a muffin pan.
In a large bowl, beat sugar and egg together until creamy and light-colored. Add oil, milk, and vanilla and mix well.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
Slowly add flour mixture into egg mixture until well combined.
Fill donut pan about 2/3rd way full or the muffin pan about 3/4 full and bake for 10 minutes for donuts or 15 minutes for muffins, or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
Do not overcook! You want a nice, dense, moist cake.

Powdered donuts: While donuts are still warm to the touch, remove from tins and immediately roll the crust with powdered sugar, until it is well coated. Dust the tops with sugar as well.

Sugared donuts: Using a pastry brush, coat each donut with a thin layer of melted butter. Roll each buttered donut in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. (Perform this step immediately before serving. If the butter and sugar cool for too long, it will make more of a “crust” on the donut)

Jelly filled donuts: Layer the donuts. Put in about 1/3 then a ring of jelly then another 1/3 of the batter.

Icing donuts: Mix one cup of confectioners sugar with two table spoons of HOT water. Dip the donut into the icing.

I made chocolate ones and they tasted more like a chocolate bread, so I still need to find a good recipe for those. These were actually so much easier than I ever imagined. You can leave the plain, sugar them or decorate any way you want. They keep for several days but I'm doubting they will be around that long. Now...don't you forgive me? Let's always be friends. Have another donut.
