Worlds Greatest Cinnamon Rolls


It's Monday and my husband had the day off, so I had made cinnamon rolls and refrigerated them as to have hot ooey gooey cinnamon rolls this morning for breakfast and to butter him up to help pick blackberries today to freeze and make jam tomorrow. There is nothing better then throwing some rolls in the oven and 30 minutes later a life altering event will occur to your taste buds, I love refrigerating the dough so all I have to do is turn on the oven and throw in the rolls, my eyes don't even need to open yet. My Granny would make cinnamon rolls at least a few times a month growing up and it still brings back warm fuzzes with every bite, yet I was never able to have her recipe as she had passed before I was of age to ask. I usually make cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning and have been working on the ultimate recipe for years and I feel confident enough to share this luscious recipe finally! Here is goes. Please enjoy!

Zucchini Carrot Pineapple Cake with Walnuts and Cream Cheese Frosting


Zucchini Carrot Pineapple Cake with Walnuts and Cream Cheese Frosting
Oh my, zucchini carrot cake, what more can I say? This cake turned out so moist. I just wished I would have been able to get a better picture. I guess it's time to start thinking about a nicer camera. I am so envious of some of the blogs and the way they can control the background and picture.  Colt seems open to the idea so maybe for Christmas he will think of me. Until then we or me will just have to deal with my mediocre pictures. I have a ton of zucchini in the back yard right now and wanted to put it to a good use, what better way then a cake. Colt ate about half the cake in the first day, it was so delicious. It defiantly is a denser cake not like what you find in the grocery store, with a nice crumb. I can't stand a store bought carrot cake, I find the cake rather dry and the the frosting to sweet. I know sometimes I'm a food snob what can I say, I'm a brat! The frosting is a little on the soft side due to less powdered sugar but if you place it in the refrigerator it will firm up and become more manageable.

Odds And Ends Breakfast


Odds-And-Ends-Breakfast.jpg
This breakfast came about the other day as our fridge was almost empty as I had been avoiding the dreaded trip to the grocery store, I love to cook but hate to go to the grocery store. 
I had 5 eggs, 2 potatoes, 3 pieces of bacon and a few other odds and ends. This ended up being so delicious I will defiantly be making this again. It would also be great over the campfire for a one dish camping breakfast. I usually avoid cooking breakfast and leave anything more then oatmeal, muffins or the occasional hard boiled egg to my husband. But I new he would find a bit of frustration this particular morning when he went to look in the fridge and saw my lack of trip to the grocery store. So ahead I forged to create something healthy and delicious. The best part was when the kids asked me to make it again.
