call me betty + make your own cinnabon

I don't know about your weather, but the past few days here have been overcast and sprinkly. Decked out in the infamous velour tracksuit, I literally holed myself up 1/2 the weekend on the couch with my cookbooks, and's amazing what you can make with a little bit of flour. Like my new favorite recipe ever....Cinnabon cinnamon rolls! And YES, they taste just like them! You have to try're family and friends will LOVE you! And don't be scared about the yeast and kneading dough part......if convenience food girl here can do it, so can you.

Here's some pics of the process.

A few other things I made over the weekend (from scratch):
coffee cake (Sat. breakfast)
cheeseburger soup (Sun. lunch)
biscuits to go with the soup
oh...and the hub's joined in the fun on Friday nite and made some homemade peanut butter cookies.
There's even talk about us getting new pans. Feels so Betty Crocker!
PS. I love reading all of your comments and would like to respond individually but am having a hard time figuring out how to do that through blogger. So far, I've only found stuff for Wordpress. If anyone has any tips leave a comment or email me: ahappycircusatgmaildotcom.
PPS. I will be linking this post up to the following:
