Good Ol' Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

I enjoy perusing through Tammy’s recipe site.  She has a great amount of cooking tips and inspiration that are realistic to homemakers with little children running around. 


I recently tried the cinnamon roll recipe she posted and was quite pleased with the results.  They were a huge hit around here!  You can adjust the roll filling to your own personal liking.  I added a bit more filling and add some nuts.  I also figured out that you can easily make these cinnamon rolls up ahead of time. 
After the first rising, punch down and roll out your dough and fill.  Roll up in a long roll and slice.  You can either freeze them in a sliced roll or you can lay them out on either on trays, or in disposable pans or in foil covered cardboard can holder boxes…then cover in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.  When ready to use, leave some time for them to thaw and rise in a warm place before baking. 
We made up several trays of these cinnamon rolls for a one time mess that will net us many future easy uses. 
I also found lots of inspiration from her recent posts on meal planning after the baby is born and have been inspired to start planning my freezer meals for late pregnancy and postpartum. 
I’ll post a picture as soon as it gets off my camera….

    I’ve also found a lot of really good recipes off of Tammy’s recipe site. I printed up a lot of them and put them in a binder to make a “cookbook”. I just made cinnamon rolls yesterday using my bread dough, but that recipe looks really good. I’ll have to try it sometime.

    We also printed some of the recipes off…. We tried a coffee cake that was good and the Farmhouse chicken recipe…which was fabulous! I am planning on making a huge batch of that and freezing them for supper meals. Instead of using a box stuffing for the topping…we improvised and made our own out of bread crumbs, water and seasonings.
    I want to try that veggie bean soup–it has spinach in it that she just posted about.

    I just started making homemade cinnamon rolls last month and I was shocked at just how easy they are. Needless to say, my family is delighted! I just used the recipe out of Betty Crocker, but I think I’ll give this one a go. Tammy always has something tasty worth trying. 🙂
