Weekend Morning Cinnamon Rolls

You know, there's something about weekend mornings and pastry that just go together. This morning I had to be out of the house at 6:45, and then it was rush, rush, rush until I dropped the last child off at school at around 9:00. I was so ready to have a cup of coffee. After I dropped my school kids off, Bella and I decided we wanted pastry with our coffee. Yes, Bella gets coffee too! Don't your kids drink coffee? :) We stopped into the Doody's Bakery, grabbed a few danishes and went home. I don't know about you, but the fresh smell of coffee that met me when I opened the door just scintillated my senses. Kinda like the first time I had a sip of Monster.. my kids got a kick out of my response, it actually made me giggle. Although I love the tantalizing fruity effervescence of a Monster, I don't drink them! Fresh brewed coffee gives me the same reaction, I feel giddy and happy all over!

So getting to the point of this post, weekends are so relaxing for me, the luxury of time, the deliciousness of a hot cup of coffee and a freshly made pastry make weekend mornings a time to be savored.

So with luxury on my mind, and wanting to share, I made you all some fresh cinnamon rolls. Meant to be eaten while there still warm and gooey, and definitely with your favorite hot beverage. Preferably coffee!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend.. I'll be thinking of you! :)

Ciao and Buon Appetito!

I'm with you on the coffee, Laurie. Never tried a Monster though...
Ah, those buns sound heavenly. I went and checked out your Cinnamon Rolls article and then read more about Examiner.com. Very cool.
