Scratch Made Cinnamon Rolls… Look right up close at those tender flakes, the cinnamony swirl, ooey vanilla icing. To get to this point was a sticky, messy Sunday baking project; didn’t shower until 3 PM.

Fresh Homemade Applesauce in the Crockpot

Crockpot Applesauce

I recently learned that it’s perfectly OK to re-do a recipe post as long as you keep the original title and the post date.
