Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome. Just write up a story about grilled cheese sandwiches, take a picture of your favorite fruit, or tell us why you love (or hate) to cook.In other words, the Food on Fridays parameters are not narrow. It’s like a pitch-in, where everyone just brings something to share, and we enjoy sampling each dish.Anyway, when your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button to paste at the top of your post and link up through Mr. Linky.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Food on Fridays with AnnAn idea for next Easter comes from Creating Family Traditions, by Gloria Gaither & Shirley Dobson. It’s simple, sweet and symbolic:Resurrection BunsJust like the tomb on Easter Sunday, these tasty buns are empty on the inside.1 pkg Rhodes frozen rolls (I used Bob Evans, which were the only ones available)24 large marshmallows1/4 C (1/2 stick) melted butter or margarine1/2 C sugar mixed with 1/2 t cinnamonThaw the rolls. Flatten each roll to about 3″ in diameter. Place a large marshmallow in the center of the dough and pinch the dough together to seal the marshmallow inside. Roll between palms of your hands into the size of a golf ball. Dip in the melted butter, then roll in the cinnamon sugar. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet spaced apart evenly. Let rise until double in size (30 to 60 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 or 20 minutes until golden brown. Rmoved from sheet and cool on wire rack.Here are ours fresh from the oven:This one, held by my brother, an amateur hand model (you think I’m joking?), has been broken open to reveal that it’s empty inside:And another, more subtle hole:Thanks to the cinnamon sugar and melted marshmallow, these turn out to be incredibly sweet, sweet rolls. I’m not sure their empty centers made much of a spiritual impact on the kids, but we sure enjoyed eating them.
