    Fresh Cinnamon Rolls for Breakfast

    This is a favorite breakfast around here, especially for Christmas morning. I like to serve this up with some sausage and egg casserole. Fresh out of the oven, these cinnamon rolls are warm, gooey, and fragrant. They don’t last long when all of the boys are home.

    Farmstyle Cottage Cheese Bread
