talents

Holy stressing --> blessing!

After we drove the Alpine Loop for like the tenth time, I NEEDED delicious homemade roles for dinner, but seen as how I didn't know how, I got the yum recipe from Glamma. Was nervy and felt like bawling but decided to throw myself into the gauntlet and just go for it! I put baby einstien on repeat again, put on heels and a sassy apron, put on the new Colbie, sprinkled flour on my face, took a few self-portraits of myself in the kitchen and went to work.


DRUM ROLLS!!!


On the fifth try I got it perfect! Soo hard but sooo worth it. So good and cute they seriously scream TAMN! Can't WAIT to bake bake bake this fall, blog a photo-tutorial, offer to teach a mini-class for {what was formilly known as} enrichment, and maybe even open a bakery or at least sell roles on etsy!

LOVE talents!

TAMN I would totally buy your roles on etsy.

Angela said...

only you could!

Janice & Don said...

wow~ once again TAMN, you amaze me. Totally on the ball with this post. Seems like everyone I know is blogging about their hidden talents and opening an etsy shop. WOW!

Sarah said...

OMG, TAMN! Just think what kind of other talents you didn't know you have! And remember, if you don't try everything and discover them all, you're hiding them under a bushel. {frownsmile}

Amalie said...

hahaha! so glad you took self portraits with flour on your face before you actually did anything. that is a good idea.

I like the high heels part! That's hot! and cute and speshal!

Christa said...

it's like that line upon line card...
You can use your talents for good... or you can use them for AWESOME!!

I'm a little disappointed, Tamn. Rolls = carbs = mcfatty. You don't want to actually LOOK like you have infant twins. Hope you're ready for two extra hours in the gym, tomorrow.

Mhana said...

Oh my heck I have a way cuter idea. Our new RS binder has an entire heading for "Role" which weirdly enough just has the attendance sheets in it. I was assuming they want us to create scrapbook pages of ourselves being role-models and put them in to inspire the lamer sisters to do something darling. Why don't you get it started by posing for pictures as a "roll model" -- you know, with JJWT holding up giant cinnamon rolls in a strategic way with you smiling behind it. As you always say, as long as your mipples and dolores are covered, its techniquely modest. My latest vinyl sign says "Domestic Sex Goddess" so maybe you could personify that in YOUR RS role book.

jomama said...

Rhodes rolls ARE so hard! I'm glad you figured them out.

Jewel said...

Making roles is really hard--making rolls is even more difficult! I'm impressed you did both!:)

Elizabeth said...

But you didn't like, EAT any did you?

Chelsea said...

What? No pictures???

Gentrey said...

YOU eat carbs? {frown-smile}

Brooke said...

Mhana -- Why can't anyone get role/roll right?

Anyway, TAMN -- WHERE IS YVETTE GOING?? And why did you have to take self-portraits of yourself? Haven't you taught A. or T. to push the shutter button yet?

Motion DeSmiths said...

Five tries? *frown smile* Great effort anyways, TAMN.

jdb in AZ said...

It took you five tries to read the instructions on the bread machine?

Jeannie said...

How crazy is this...tonight for YWs we are teaching them to make...

ROLLS!!!

Mrs.EBG said...

You are so humble to pick only one talent to brag- I mean blog- about... can't wait to see your adorable Etsy shop.

Karen said...

a sassy apron from Hip & Humble, right?

LeMira said...

I sure hope those were whole wheat rolls . . .

clan of the cave hair said...

can't believe you totally missed the opportunity to make a Bun-Pun!

Allison said...

What kind of rolls were they - Rhodes?

Spencer and Julia said...

You should totally start a cooking blog to share your awesome recipes/talents with the world.

DIY REDS! said...

I am totally waiting for a movie to come out-based on your life. It would be awesome! It could have a fun feel to it with lots of service like baking for neighbors and stimulating the economies. It could be a better clueless where you help others reach their full potential. Everyone would love it!

Sarah F said...

how do you make drum Rolls? sound good. ;)

kris and judd said...

Spot On, TAMN!!! I see soooo many blogs about food making braggings (which make me sad because my food never looks as pretty), but I know nobody elses food could have come out as great as yours. I think you should post the recipe so ppl like me who are trying to cook can learn a new talent

Kerry said...

This is so dead on. I love how many people do something easy once and then think they should teach classes on it and open a store.

You are so good at this.

Little Lovables said...

so awesome! betcha your p blessings say somthing about your most excellent home making skilz... don't bury those talents! put them high on a bushel so the world can seee

dharvey said...

The important thing is that your'e photos show the cutest high hills and the cutest ruffly apron. Also having the cutest etsy sight. It doesnt matter what the role's taste like. Its all about being the cutest. Love you, XOXO - D.

Carolyn said...

I love the part about putting Baby Einstein on repeat (again). It may sound like a silly joke, but I've met women who really put their infants in front of that on repeat.

So, we're all still waiting for Yvette's announcement!

rebekah said...

You keep forgetting to mention how much you love pumpkin. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes. Seriously, you're a little behind TAMN.

Em said...

uh tamn, please make note it's not "enrichment" anymore, even though we'll all still call it that and our grandchildren won't know what we're talking about. say it with me, "relief society meeting." blah.

Maya said...

Hahahahaha this one hit home. I think I'll put that making-your-own-babyfood post on the backburner now.....(although in my defense I definitely have made babyfood more than once! lol)



and where is Yvette going???

Tammy said...

While you're busy baking, I am busy FREAKING out about Yvette! where is she going, and can you put the word in to the mish prez there to KEEP HER ON A BIKE so her rump doesn't get ANY larger? So whats the final destination for Yvette?(and can you PUUUHHLEESE give her a cute nickname, like EVI or something?)

: ) Paula said...

Nobody out there has perfected "Hitting to close to home" like TAMN.

Great blog-teaser ideas turn into absolute perfection in your skillful hands.

Baby, I CAN see your halo!

Ashley said...

Surviving the flu is more bearable because of you TAMN. I think I am going to go get some of those homemade Rhodes "roles" right now too. Nothing makes you feel better quick than homemade goodies.

Muum said...

so impresd that you have mastered baking !

Madamemama said...

lol at the "formerly known as enrichment." I'm on the "No-Longer Enrichment" Board and I don't know what words to use anymore!

MelissanWinslow said...

of course i can make rolls, but now that they sell Rhodes at our local grocery store, i've decided to use them. Because of course once you;ve perfected a talent, you can Mary and Martha it! I use the time to play with the kiddos instead.
