Easy cinnamon rolls!
Well, at least easier cinnamon rolls. I've shared with you before that for many years I did just what I had to in the kitchen for us to get by. Since coming home full-time to stay last year, I've started experimenting more and more- and trying to make more things from scratch. I'm easily intimidated by complicated sounding recipes, so I usually adapt things to make them easier to make. Last night I used my bread machine to mix up cinnamon roll dough, then I rolled it out, spread the filling over top, rolled it up, sliced it into individual buns, and arranged them in a 9X13 to let rise overnight in the refrigerator. Then this morning I got them out and let them sit at room temp 30 minutes before baking them 25 minutes at 375. (The aroma really helped the kids drag themselves out of bed at 6:45 this morning.)
- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
