Hello

Hi everybody in Mr. Ewerts class, and yes the title of this blog is hello! You will never know who wrote this, unless my name pops up underneath this, which would really suck because this mastermind of a plan is ruined. I realize that I said this at least three times in the last sentence. By the way the best actor in the universe is Tom Holland!!!!!!

Quick Cinnamon Rolls Recipe 

Landon 

May. 28 

ELA 

Mr. Ewert 

This recipe is from allrecipes.com and is a quick and easy cinnamon roll recipe with no yeast, proofing, or kneading necessary and can be made from scratch. The preparation time is 20 minutes, cooking time is 20 minutes, and in total will be ready in around 40 minutes. 

First, we will start with the ingredients to make the dough: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons white sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons butter softened, ¾ cup milk, and 1 egg. 

 Next, the ingredients for the filling will be: ½ cup white sugar, ½ cup brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon. 

 This will be optional but if you want to make a cream cheese frosting, the ingredients will be: 1 cup confectioners’ sugar (optional), 4 ounces softened cream cheese (optional), ¼ cup softened butter (optional), and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract. You also need ¼ cup butter divided. 

Your first step will be too preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and then brush a 9-inch baking pan with 2 tablespoons melted butter. 

 After that you will whisk your 2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons white sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and teaspoon salt together in a large bowl. Then while you’re whisking that you will work 3 tablespoons softened butter into the flour mixture with your hands. 

Next you will beat the milk and egg in a separate bowl and when finished that you will pour it into the flour-butter mixture and stir it with a rubber spatula until the mixture turns into a soft dough. 

When your dough is ready the next thing you will do is turn your dough out onto a floured surface and roll into an ¼-inch thick rectangle. Brush the surface of the dough with 2 tablespoons melted butter. 

Next you will have to whisk ½ cup of white sugar, ½ cup of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle ½ of the cinnamon sugar mix in the bottom of the prepared 9-inch baking dish. With the remaining mix you will sprinkle it over the butter-brushed dough. 

When that is ready you will roll the dough around the filling to form a log; you will then cut the log into 18 separate pieces making sure they’re even and then will place them in the prepared baking dish. 

Bake in oven for around 20 to 25 minutes or until the rolls are set. 

For the cream cheese frosting you will beat the confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, ¼ cup softened butter, and vanilla extract in a bowl until the frosting is smoothened out. When the hot cinnamon rolls are ready you top them when hot and then you’re ready to eat.  

Some of the cooks notes are that they half the recipe and that you should bake for 15 minutes instead of 20 minutes. 

Some problems people had was that the dough was sticky so they recommend to add a few scoops of flour.

Freddie Mercury Bio

Freddie Mercury Biography

Mr. Ewert 

Who was Freddie Mercury?  

Freddie Mercury (born with the name Farrokh Bulsara) was born on September 5th ,1946 (died the 24th of November, 1991), was a British singer, songwriter and record producer. He was mainly known for being the lead singer of the band, Queen, and his four-octave vocal range with flashy stage personaMany people consider him one of the greatest singers or even the best singer of all time. 

Early Life: 

Freddie was born on September 5th1946 in Zanzibar to Parsi parents from India. Mercury spent most of his childhood in India where he took piano lessons ate the age of seven while living with relatives. At the age of eight, Mercury was sent to a British-style boarding school that was for boys. When he was 12 he had formed a school, band called The Hectics where he covered songs by rock and roll artists such as Cliff Richard and Little Richard. In February of 1963, he rejoined his parents in their flat/apartment in Zanzibar.  

In 1964, Freddie and the rest of his family escaped Zanzibar due to the violence of the revolution for independence, in which thousands of ethnic Arabs and Indians were killed. They had moved into a small house in Feltham, Middlesex, England. After studying art in Isleworth Polytechnic in Western London, he studied graphic art and design at Ealing Art College. He eventually used his skills to design the logo for his future band, Queen. 

After graduating, Freddie had joined a series of bands and sold second-hand clothes in the Kensington Market in the city of Londonwith his girlfriend, Mary Austin. He also had a job as a baggage hander at Heathrow Airport. Friends who knew him back then said he was a quiet and shy young man with lots of interest in music. 

In April of 1970, Freddie teamed with Brian May (guitarist) and Roger Taylor (drummer) and became their lead singer of their band called Smile. Later, in 1971, they were joined by a bassist named John Deacon. Mercury then chose a new name for the band and eventually decided to name it “Queen”. Later, he said, “It’s very regal obviously, and it sounds splendid. It’s a strong name, very universal, and immediate. I was certainly aware of the gay connotations, but that was just one facet of it.” At about the same time as he made that statement he changed his surname from Bulsara to the now famous Mercury. 

Death from Aids: 

On November 23, 1991, Freddie had released a statement confirming he had aids: “I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV-positive and have AIDSI felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease.” The day after that statement, Freddie Mercury had died from AIDS-related bronchial pneumonia at his London mansion. He died at the age of 45. 

Longtime friend and bandmate, Roger Taylor provided some insight to Freddie’s decision to keep his battle with AIDS private. “He didn’t want to be looked at as an object of pity and curiosity, and he didn’t want circling vultures over his head,” Taylor said, according to a report in Entertainment Weekly. The rock world mourned the loss of one of its most versatile and engaging performers. 

To honour Freddie Mercury, the Freddie Mercury Tribute: Concert for AIDS Awareness was held in April 1992, at Wembley Stadium. There was a variety of rock bands ranging from Def Leppard to Elton John and they performed to celebrate Mercury and advance the fight against AIDS. The same year that happened, their song Bohemian Rhapsody returned to the pop charts.
