Cinnamon Rolls and Mom!

I love to read The Pioneer Woman.  She's so creative in her writing style, she gives good recipes, and she's down right funny!  Not too long ago I heard somebody say that her cinnamon rolls were the best.  As you know, we're always on a quest for good cinnamon rolls.  The problem is that I'm afraid of yeast!  That's right!  I have a fear of yeast -- I don't know what to do with it!  I don't know how to make good bread! 

Yeast has a hold on me!

It makes me feel like a failure!

But I try to overcome my fear and occasional try something with yeast in it.  After all, I keep a fresh jar of yeast in my refrig. just for the instances when I get an urge to try and conquer the dreaded yeast recipe!

I read The Pioneer Woman's recipe for cinnamon rolls . . . and I thought to myself, "I can do this!"

I thought that the other day . . .

I thought it the day after that . . .

I thought it yesterday . . .

 . . .and today I gave in!

I made cinnamon rolls from scratch!  I made nearly 5 dozen rolls and I think they're pretty darn yummy!  I wasn't even afraid of the yeast!

It took all day -- well, sort of -- but it was worth it!

Guess what I did!

The Mr. was gone again tonight, so I poured 3 ice cold cups of milk, got 3 forks, and the "runt" pan of the cinnamon rolls that were still warm and flowing with yummy icing, and I sat that pan in the middle of the kid's table and we ate cinnamon rolls for dinner while we watched an old episode of The Cosby's!

 . . .and this made us smile!

Life is good and I'm a cool mom!

If you want to enjoy a great cinnamon roll and conquer your fear of yeast, go to and search her site for cinnamon rolls.  The recipe is posted under June 1, 2007 and up will pop her delicious recipe!
