Cinnamon Bun Recipe

I’m a breakfast girl. I always have been, always will be. Breakfast is my thing. I’m all about trying to create yummy, delicious breakfast items for my family.

When I was a little girl my dad would make cinnamon buns every single week. I would wake up to the smell of cinnamon buns and it would be the most delicious smell in the world. My friend Sheri McShane created a fantastic Cinnamon Bun Recipe and it’s off the hook amazing. I mean – OFF THE HOOK – amazing.

Here’s a little about Sheri, too:

Hello All. My name is Sheri. I am a working mother of 3 pretty darn fabulous little boys. I’m trying very hard to handle the stresses of working, being a mother, being a wife, keeping house, and finding the time to just laugh and enjoy life. A few things you should know about me: I’m an iced-coffee addict, I love to organize, and I love my wine. I am also a master at fort-building and being the belly-eating monster.

Fitness and healthy eating habits are important to me so you may hear a little about that too. Here you will read about my daily musings and of course my venting, wine glass in hand. Hope you find something you can relate to. Cheers. If you’re a crafty kind of person, come visit me over at The Crafty Collaborative.
