Yummy Cinnamon Rolls

Basic Dough
1 1/2 Cups warm water
2-3 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon yeast
Let yeast dissolve.

Stir and add:
2 Cups flour
1 Teaspoon salt

Stir and add:
1/4 Cup oil

Stir and add:
2 Cups flour

Mix all together well until dough ball forms. Let raise if desired.

Bake at 425 for 10-15 min.

This is my favorite dough recipe! You can turn it into just about any type of bread you can imagine. I use it for pizza crust, cinnamon rolls (with a little extra sugar in the mix), and bread for my M since it has no milk in it. The gal I got it from would make hamburger and hot dog buns as well as dinner rolls out of it too. So play with it a bit and make it your own. Enjoy!

White Chicken Chili

1 Tbsp Olive oil
1 large Onion
2 stalks Celery
1 small Yellow pepper
2 cloves Garlic
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp pepper
32 oz. box chicken broth
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
2 cans white cannellini beans
1 cup frozen corn
Chop onion, celery and yellow pepper into small pieces. Heat oil in a large (4 qt) saucepan and saute vegetables until tender - about five minutes. Add spices, broth, chicken, and ONE can of the beans. Simmer, covered for 20 minutes. Mash the beans from the 2nd can - this helps to thicken the chili. Add mashed beans and corn. Simmer, uncovered for another 20 minutes.
