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….
