And that's a wrap: And a choo choo train cake


Gabriel's language neurons have connected and he over the past few months has become very adept at saying one word - "cake." And with reason - there has been a lot of cake at my house as of late. Birthday season ends always on a bittersweet note. I end up missing the cake baking and party planning, but it is nice to have it all done and especially see the faces of my kids at the celebration.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Cream Cheese Frozen Yogurt or Red Hot Glaze



This year on Christmas we fed the kids ice cream and cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

On Christmas morning my husband often enjoyed cinnamon rolls growing up. For our Christmas morning, and Valentine's day for that matter, we try for a fun breakfast. Dutch babies, eggnog french toast, red velvet pancakes. This year we created something fun - cinnamon roll pancakes. To top it off, I made a cream cheese studded frozen yogurt. No worse for you than the typical syrup topping and my kids loved having "ice cream" for breakfast.
