On Saturdays my husband is at work all day so it's just Arliss and Travis. I love the idea of making something special on Saturday mornings. It marks that the weekend has begun. Today I made cinnamon rolls. I love the smell, the shape, the texture, all of it.
We have a food service wholesale store here that sells dough in bulk. Usually the dough can be used for pizza making, which was last night; but today I used one of the dough balls to make the cinnamon rolls.
I pulled out my Pioneer Woman cookbook and found her recipe for cinnamon rolls. Her recipe makes 40-50 rolls. But I took some of her recipe and adapted it for my own. I forgot to take pics of the dough as I prepared it but if you get her book you can see some of what I did.

The icing had a wonderful color and texture, the lemon was a bit strong, note to self for next time, less lemon extract. I am not the best about following directions, especially when I didn't have a recipe to start with. Either way, the boys loved the rolls and so did I. I have enough icing that I can save it for another batch. In the meantime, I hope your Saturday is as wonderful as ours.
