What to do on a blustery day?

Stormy days always make me want to bake. Maybe it's because my house gets so nice and toasty warm when I have the oven cranked on. Maybe it's because my kids think I'm the BOMB when they come home to freshly baked treats. Maybe it's because kneading dough is a great way to take out frustrations build arm muscles. I also like the way it makes my house smell.

Today it smelled of baking bread (my favorite smell) and cinnamon. Since the tried and true bread recipe I use makes 6 loaves or a bazillion cinnamon rolls, I decided to do half and half.

Cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing. They were so tastey! We really enjoyed them.....and most of us are still licking icing off our faces.

And I have fresh bread to go along with dinner tonight.
