Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread - easy breakfast recipe that starts with refrigerated cinnamon rolls! The perfect fall breakfast!

Happy Friday eve!

You guys.

I think we may have made our final lake trip of the year last weekend.

It was cold.

I think I lasted 30 minutes before I wrapped myself in all 4 of our towels and then they eventually followed me out.

So depressing.

Not really sure what I’m going to do with my weekends now.

On the brightside, maybe it will finally be cool enough for long hikes with the husky. We went for one last week and by about mile 4, she led me to the lake and then just stood in water up to her chest for a good 15 minutes.

Also, haven’t been able to have the top off the Jeep since May so I’m definitely looking forward to that, too.

Hey guys! Happy almost Friday!

This is a recipe that I originally posted in, like, 2011 or some ridiculous long time ago but I reshot it a couple weeks ago mostly so that I had an excuse to eat them again. So if it sounds familiar, that’s why.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you about a fun Char-Broil event I attended down in Austin last week. I very rarely get to attend events like this so I was pretty excited when it worked out and I got to sneak out of the house for a few hours to hang out with friends and eat lots of food.

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing - soft and fluffy cinnamon rolls with the most delicious icing!

Happy Tuesday guys!

I hope you had a fabulous long weekend (if you were lucky enough to get one)! The kids and I took advantage of the $1 hot dogs at Sonic and may or may not have indulged in slushies as well. And then I spent the rest of the day cleaning out the fridge and my closet and watching a Vanderpump Rules marathon.

It was fantastic.

I also went nuts in the kitchen and made cookies, muffins, and these cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting.

I can’t remember the last time I made cinnamon rolls. Probably not since we lived in Colorado!

But cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite things to make. I love the process. The making of dough, rising, filling and rolling, another rise, baking, frosting. I love how long it takes. It makes it that much more exciting when they’re finally done and frosted with amazingly delicious cream cheese frosting!

I am obsessed with these. They are so fluffy and perfect. Warm them up for, like, 20 seconds just so the frosting gets melty… perfection.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be eating my weight in cinnamon rolls.

Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole is the perfect holiday morning breakfast! Only 5 ingredients and cooks completely in the slow cooker! 

Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole - the perfect holiday morning breakfast! Only 5 ingredients and cooks completely in the slow cooker!

I have to tell you a story about this crockpot cinnamon roll casserole.

A few days before my husband left Afghanistan, he shared this recipe with me on Facebook.

And he never does that.

He very rarely has requests for me and he especially never goes searching for recipes. But he really, really, really wanted me to make this.

So I bought all the ingredients and made myself a timeline for Thanksgiving Day (the day he got home) that included putting these in the crockpot before we left to get him so they’d be ready by the time we all got home.

Well. I got distracted taking selfies with a turkey headband on and watching the Macy’s parade and it just didn’t happen.

Happy Monday! I hope you guys have the day off and get to enjoy an extra day of relaxation and fun.

I have to tell you though, I totally hate post office holidays. On a normal day, I know that even if my day is horrible, I still have hope that maybe there will be a fabulous pyrex dish or a bottle of nailpolish or a magazine in the mailbox. Today, I just have to hope that the day doesn’t suck.

Deployment. It does weird things to your brain.

To update you, I only cried at one of the school conferences. And to be fair, it had absolutely nothing to do with school. I was just a mess.

We did go to the grand opening of Trader Joe’s afterwards. WHICH WAS AWESOME. The checkout line wrapped around the store twice but really, we weren’t there more than an hour and a half. And then I ate nothing but pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin cornbread croutons, and pumpkin salted caramels the rest of the weekend.

Hmm, what else?

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’ve been really annoyed with our internet service provider. I cannot deal with slow internet but I’m stuck with this provider since we live on an army post and it’s our only option.

Anyway, I literally called them 7 times last week to have them reset my modem and a guy even came out once to look at it. So Saturday night the entire network on Fort Carson went down. And stayed down for 12 hours.

Do you know how badly I wanted to call and sit on hold for an hour just to say “I TOLD YOU SOMETHING WAS WRONG!” and then hang up?

No internet issues since they got it back up and running.

Next time, maybe Baja Broadband will listen to the resident internet addict when she says that something is terribly wrong.

Ugh, I love being right.

I also continued my butterscotch obsession by making a butterscotch glaze. And since I needed something to put the glaze on, I made pumpkin cinnamon rolls! They turned out so yummy and I may or may not have had a couple for dinner one night. Oops.

I have a pumpkin cinnamon roll recipe that I’ve used for years and years (it’s our usual Christmas morning breakfast!) and it actually uses a butterscotch pudding mix so check that one out if you’re crazy about butterscotch like I am!
