And so it continues. My breakfast obsession cannot be stopped, you guys – I hope you don’t mind ;). Since we’re in the middle of winter, I’ve been craving some color and fruit in my life. The grocery stores are filled with the most amazing citrus fruits right now, which is seriously holding me over until we have a bigger selection of fresh fruits and veggies around once again. As for now, I am totally relying on the produce I froze over the summer, knowing that I would be beyond happy I took the time to stock my freezer once the cold days set in. And am I ever.

Strawberries were begging to be used over the weekend and they didn’t have to twist my arm to make it into today’s recipe. I instantly knew that the homemade strawberry filling combined with the sweet dough would be a winner. I mean, how could one go wrong with that combo?

As soon as these came out of the oven, Adam volunteered to “assist” while I took these pictures. I was under some serious pressure to take these shots as quickly as humanly possible. We had some devouring to do!

So please pull up a chair and join us. People who virtually brunch together, stay together. And we’d love for you to stick around awhile! [Read more…]

I have breakfast on my mind.

Every so often I develop a huge craving for all kinds of breakfast foods and can’t keep myself from making them. Waffles and bacon, anyone? How about a veggie-studded frittata? The occasional bowl of cereal sneaks in too. Cooking up breakfast is huge for me since I usually can’t get anything down before 10 AM or so. And I am not about to stop.

If I had to choose which breakfast item is my favorite, it would definitely be a tie between donuts and cinnamon rolls. Yes, I am one of those people that can’t pick just one.

I usually make either one on weekends and for special occasions, but since school has or is about to start for most kids, I couldn’t help but think if cinnamon rolls could be made in a matter of minutes before heading out to school or work. And the answer is YES.

These Twisted Cinnamon Roll Dunkers are ready to sweeten your week. [Read more…]
