Food on Fridays with Ann

We’re attempting to eat more simply during Lent.But from what I understand, during Lent (and throughout the year), every Sunday is like a mini-Easter. I take this to mean we can enjoy a mini-break and prepare a mini-feast.For our little feast, I followed the recipe for cinnamon rolls shared just last week by Inside the White Picket Fence.We highly recommend you try it yourself.They didn’t rise very much, but when I put them in the oven, they puffed up nicely.I need to mix the icing better, but the lumps didn’t hurt the overall taste.The kids were nervous about heading into Lent.After Sunday’s cinnamon roll feast, they’re ready for it to last all year!

      Those look great. I can see why your kids are looking forward to this Sunday! :)

    4. Oh, yum, Ann! Who can resist a cinnamon bun??

      Hey, I’ve found the perfect coffee to go with these buns … or to substitute for them if you need to save calories. :) I posted about it today and linked here.

      Have a great weekend.

    5. I’m so very happy that you all enjoyed the recipe!!! :D

      They look like they turned out wonderfully- a little too wonderfully. I’ve been fighting myself wanting to make them again this weekend and so far sensibility has won out, but now I don’t know if I can keep from caving!
