Baked Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

I came across these pictures I took last year and realized I never posted the recipe! We love pancakes. We love cinnamon rolls. This gives you the best of both PLUS there's no standing over the stove top flipping pancakes and being the last person to sit down and enjoy them. I love that this make a giant pan of pancakes and everyone can sit down together and eat at the same time.  I just had to share this recipe now because these baked pancakes make a great Christmas morning treat.


Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Here is my current go-to recipe for cut-out sugar cookies. I'm a big fan of sugar cookies. Big fan. And I used to think baking cut-out sugar cookies was hard work and not worth all the mess. (Maybe it's because I always turn to this Dropped Cracked Sugar Cookie recipe when I need a fix asap)
But this recipe is not at all difficult and it's only as messy as you (or your little helpers) make it. ;)
Don't limit yourself to baking them only during the holidays! Trust me. After you make them once you'll be sure to make them again and again!


{Crock} Pot Roast

Who doesn't love a good and easy pot roast? I think it has to be one of my favorite comfort foods.
My family loves our tried and true pot roast recipe but figured it wouldn't hurt to try another recipe or two. Varying recipes for Mississippi Pot Roast had overtaken my pinterest and facebook feeds quite a few times before I decided that I must try it and see just what everyone is raving about.  The Mississippi Pot Roast recipe typically calls for 5 ingredients: roast, ranch dressing mix, Au Jus mix, pepperoncini peppers, and butter. When it came time to throw everything in my crock pot I realized I only had 3 of the 5 ingredients. So I improvised and the outcome was still fabulous. I guess I still need to follow that "famous" recipe exactly so I can join the masses in raving about it. But for now I'll leave you with my improvised recipe that had the little mouths in my house asking for seconds!
