Cinnamon Roll Cake

Believe it or not, I have made this cake 3 times now. Yet I have no pictures!!! You can click on the link below the recipe to see pictures from 3 B's. It is a very easy recipe, but everyone loves it. The cinnamon swirl and the glaze on top really make it. I will be making this any time I need something easy for a brunch.

Pour over warm cake.

M&M Cookies

A friend posted a link to these M&M cookies over on Taste Buds. They are very similar to M&M cookies you might find in a bakery. Kids would love them! There is no butter in the recipe- only shortening and vegetable oil. This makes for a very crisp but still a little chewy cookie.
