iPhone Apps I love my iPhone. It's the greatest phone I've ever owned by far (and I've owned a lot of them). In fact, I admit I probably love my iPhone too much. I'm always finding new apps, and here are some of the latest I love... Angry Birds- I'm not much into video games, but this thing is addictive. Vougue Knitting - I'm a knitter, and this app is great. You can keep track of unlimited projects and inventory all your needles so you never buy what you don't need. IMDB - When you just can't think of the actress that starred in that one film, this will keep you from going crazy. 360 - This app allows you to easily take 360 degree panoramic photos and upload them.
Only 4 More Days!

I'm so excited about Christmas! I feel like a little kid...I can hardly wait. I'm not quite done wrapping yet, but I only have a few left. The baking was done long ago, except for the rolls I'm making for Christmas day. I'm making "Italian Pinwheel Rolls". It's a recipe I found online, and I thought I'd share it with you.
Italian Pinwheel Rolls
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees)
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, butter, salt and 1 cup flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with nonstick cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic and oregano to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 rolls.
Place rolls cut side up in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack.
