Middle of the Cinnamon Roll Muffins

The best part of the best breakfast in muffin're welcome!

Middle of the Cinnamon Roll Muffins #recipe #breakfast #muffins #cinnamon

I have made these muffins a few times and still cannot get over how good they are. The first time, I completely forgot to do the glaze and by the time I remembered, the muffins were gone. The second time, I did remember the glaze, but the pictures I took were in that batch that I lost due to hard drive failure back in the summer. Third times a charm, right? These muffins are pretty standard in recipe, but the way you layer the batter really makes all the difference. Plus the glaze is the perfect touch to really make these muffins taste like the center of a cinnamon roll.

Throwback Thursday No. 73

Throwback Thursday No. 73 | Rediscovering Old Favorites in the Recipe Archive

I love that today's two recipes came up in the archives together because they absolutely need to be served together! They are a perfect pair. First up is this recipe for GREEN BEAN BACON BUNDLES and let me tell you'll definitely need at least a double batch. One batch is simply not enough. They are my favorite side dish ever.

This FAMILY FAVORITE SLOW COOKER ROAST recipe was my first time using Cajun seasoning in anything. And also my first time using coffee in pot roast. I found out precisely why it was named Family Favorite. It's easily one of my favorite pot roast recipes!

Bean with Bacon Soup

Classic bean soup with lots of veggies and bacon, of course!

Bean with Bacon Soup #recipe #soup #bacon #beans

I have posted tons of bean soups on my blog over the years because they are honestly just one of my favorite types of soup. I do adore soup with pasta, but I don't think anything will top bean and bacon soup. I grew up eating bean and bacon soup frequently and love trying new recipes of my childhood favorite. This soup is more tomato-y than the recipes I've tried before and it was awesome to try something new. The original recipe called for soaking beans, but that is not my strong suit, so I just used canned beans. Because there are precooked beans, you don't have to cook the soup for a long time, but I did simmer mine for a while to help that bay leaf meld with the soup. It's even better the day after!

Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake

Layers of cinnamon roll and cheesecake topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting, I won't judge you if it's dessert for breakfast!

Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake #recipe #dessert #cheesecake #cinnamonroll

Each year, I love to choose my birthday cake out and make it for myself. I know that's weird to someone, but I find it fun because I get what I want and also I love to bake, so it's not a chore to me. For my 29th birthday in 2017, I decided upon a cinnamon roll cheesecake for my birthday cake. During my pregnancy with Matthew, I became obsessed with Cinnabon. There are a great number of times where I have an insatiable craving for cinnamon rolls (homemade, large and in charge cinnamon rolls) but I don't really want to make the effort to actually make them. No matter how much I love them.

This cheesecake was the perfect cake to sate my cravings and also be an absolutely wonderful birthday cake. It has cinnamon roll crust topped with cheesecake swirled with cinnamon roll filling. Then topped with more cinnamon roll and then the pièce de résistance- the CREAM CHEESE FROSTING. Man, I forget how much I love and adore cream cheese frosting until I have it again. So if you have some time on your hands and want to treat yourself...treat yourself to a piece of this incredible breakfast-dessert hybrid. :)
