Sunday Morning Sweetness

When my son was first diagnosed with a corn syrup allergy I purchased a bread machine. I loved it! I made many different types of breads, pretzel dough and pizza dough for Friday nights. It died a few years ago and I just never got around to replacing it my beloved machine. Truth be told, I can now buy many of the items I "had" to make for my son ... we've come a long way in a short time with food allergies.

This past Thursday night my husband and I had a shopping date {his favorite kind of date! Well, maybe not but he was a good sport.} William Sonoma was hosting an event with extended hours and there were a few items which I was in need of purchasing{wanted badly}. The closest one to our home is 45 minutes away so we made an evening of it and went to dinner at a fabulous Italian place near by afterwards.

 I've been eyeing the Breville bread machine for a while now. I did my research and came to the conclusion that this was the machine for me! We also managed to walk out with a new pizza stone for the patio grill, a couple of cooking utensils,and a few yummy products they were demoing. What I didn't realize, was that my husband decided to become a Williams Sonoma official taste consultant. Every time I turned around he had something new to sample!  He became fast friends with the chef that was there from Watch Hill. As a matter of fact, I believe they made plans to have dinner next week at his restaurant! I hope I was invited too :)

Oh, the funniest part of our {date night} evening was that Kevin won a great giveaway gift as he was grazing through the store!

It was a fun and very successful shopping evening for both of us!

I've been itching to put my new bread machine to work. What's better than cinnamon rolls on a Sunday morning before church?


This is what I LOVE most about a bread machine ... you dump everything in and walk away!!

 I made the dough, and assembled the rolls on Saturday night. This morning I pulled them out of the frig, let them rise, and popped them in the oven. The baking goodness was amazing. The finished product was delicious!


The layers were light and fluffy with just the right combination of cinnamon and brown sugar. The cream cheese frosting was perfection!

I may need to make these every Sunday morning!

Join me in wearing blue today in support of World Wide Autism Day. 

A few of my sweet kiddos {and their wonderful families} deal with the challenges of autism each and every day. 

To date, there are still so many unknown factors and the numbers rise daily. The autism spectrum is wide with puzzling effects and hidden answers.

Thank you!
