Quick and Easy Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Icing makes these the perfect fast breakfast treat!


So school is basically out. Just a few days left then it’s the lazy days of summer. I know how the first week will go.

The girls up by 8am, both are morning people. They’ll be looking for projects to do, wanting to be entertained. I’ve got a few things lined up (thank you Pinterest!) As for the boy, If I let him, he’ll be up until 4 am on the X-box and sleeping until 2 in the afternoon. I’ll let him get away with it for a few days. But only a few.

Then it’s time to get real. No sleeping the summer away. It’ll be a fight to get him out of bed. Making delicious rolls will help ease the pain.
These rolls are a snap to make. Just crack open the crescent rolls and in just a few minutes they’re in the oven.
