Honey Butter Dinner Roll Recipe
INGREDIENTS (For Rolls):
⅓ cup very warm water (not too hot, it will destroy and render the yeast ineffective
1 envelope active dry yeast (2¼ tsp)
5 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar
1⅓ cups of your favorite nut milk
1/2 of a medium banana at room temperature (whipped)
5 tablespoons EARTH BALANCE (non-soy), softened and cut into small cubes
4 cups GOLD MEDAL, ALL PURPOSE, CAKE FLOUR (this ingredient is so important)
INGREDIENTS (For Honey Butter):
4 Tablespoons butter, softened
3 Tablespoons honey
3 Tablespoons confectioners (powdered) sugar
INSTRUCTIONS (For Combining Roll Dough):
In a small bowl add warm water.
Add one packet of RAPID RISE YEAST and ¼ teaspoon of sugar.
Mix until combined.
Let mixture rest for 10 minutes or until it becomes puffy/fluffy.
Pour yeast mixture into a large bowl and add 5 tablespoons sugar, warm nut milk, whipped banana and butter.
Begin mixing the aforementioned, very well. The Earth Balance may not be completely mixed in and may be floating. This is perfectly fine.
Start adding in flour, one cup at a time. Using a wisk or a very low speed hand mixer or blender, mix liquid and first cup of flour. Eventually, you will need a spatula. Finally, you will kneed and combine the ingredients together by hand, until dough is somewhat tacky. Kneed for about 3 to 4 minutes).
Lightly oil a large bowl and then transfer dough into the bowl.
Place a cup of water into the microwave for two minutes. This will slightly warm the inside of the microwave and aid in rising the dough.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a slightly damp hand towel. DO NOT TURN ON MICROWAVE while the dough is rising in the microwave.
Place covered bowl into the microwave for two hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
Once the dough has doubled, punch dough down to release the air.
Transfer dough to a very, lightly floured surface.
Add just enough flour to dough and hands to handle dough without it sticking to your hands.
Divide dough into two equal balls.
Roll out the balls into 13-inch circles (like a pizza)
Brush dough with Honey Butter
Slice the dough with a pizza cutter into pizza slices. Cut into 8 or 16 slices (whatever size you prefer)
Roll each slice of dough, starting at the widest end.
Line a pan with parchment paper and place rolls into the parchment, lined pan with the pointed tip tucked under.
Cover the pan with a slightly damp towel and again, place in a warm area until rolls are doubled in size (about 1 hour).
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
Remove plastic wrap/towel and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. After 15 minutes, stay in front of the oven and watch for color and doneness
Brush hot rolls with leftover honey butter.
This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.
The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.
Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.
So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.
YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience.

YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
