Mango and Orange Smoothies. Also known as Sunshine Smoothies. Seriously, is there anyone out there who is not in dire need of some sunshine?
Well, maybe not people who live in the desert (almost typed ‘dessert’ there. What’s on a girl’s mind…) or people who suffer from summer depression or vampires, but apart from them I think everyone on the Northern part of the world is waiting for winter to be over.
I know I am.
So I made Sunshine Smoothies!

I’ve got news. I made money with my food blog! A whopping 8 dollars and 99 cents!
When I first started this blog almost a year ago (that’s right: The Tough Cookie has a big birthday coming up!), I already knew a thing or two about food blogs and money. Well, I thought I did, anyway…

And I have been known to set my oven mitts on fire and I have once ruined a perfectly good (and may I add: delicious) cheesecake because I planted my foot in it stepping out onto the balcony, where I left it to cool.

What’s the difference between a roll and a bun? As I was typing out the recipe for this post, it suddenly occurred to me that I didn’t know what to name this recipe. I’m Dutch, remember? Here in the Netherlands these things go by the name of kaneelbroodjes.
Yes, we have them here too. Just like pancakes and apple pie.
Anyway, back to the question at hand, what is the difference between a bun and a roll? Personally, I’ve always like the sound of the word ‘bun’. Honey bun. Juicy buns. Bun in the oven. It’s just a cute word that reminds me of being in love and babies. ‘Roll’ on the other hand, just reminds me of the Rolling Stones and unwanted body fat.
I wanted to ask my brother, because he has a T-shirt that says – and allow me to clean up the language a bit – ‘Forget about Google. Ask me!’, but since he wasn’t around he left me no choice but to Google it anyway…
