    Caramel Apple Shortcake

    It’s September, and that means something very exciting: apples!!! I love apples. And apple orchards. And salted caramel. So…when I dreamed up this Caramel Apple Shortcake I got to work on it *immediately!*

    Cherry Almond Sweet Rolls

    In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing about less-than-mainstream flavor combinations. Blackberry/Lavender/Chocolate in my Blackberry Lavender Brownie Pie. Chocolate/Coconut/Coffee in my Coconut Mocha Pie. So many times I come up with a flavor profile first, then decide how to execute it. It was the same story with these Cherry Almond Sweet Rolls, and I’m so happy with how these flavors shine together!

    S’mores Sweet Rolls

    Oh my goodness. You know that I have trouble editing myself. That I have a tendency to take recipes a tad too far. Today, I didn’t even try to control myself. I took the quintessential summer dessert and ran with it. The resulting dessert-for-breakfast masterpiece: S’mores Sweet Rolls.

    Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

    The Fallstravaganza continues! Hey, I made a few recipes that weren’t pumpkin or apple… Recently I gushed about how much I love Fall and complained how Texas does NOT have Fall in my post for my Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie. Fall and comfort food go hand in hand, but when you’re homesick it’s just a necessity. As such, it was *necessary* for me to make the reciprocal baked good: Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls with Cinnamon Browned Butter Glaze.

    Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls

    We always either have no bananas or too many bananas. Is that how it is with everyone? Either I have kids complaining that we are out of bananas (and they *really* wanted one), or we have a bunch on the counter that just get ignored (and browner by the day). You can never have too many recipes for the “too many bananas” scenario. Most of the time I make (The Best Ever) Banana Bread, but sometimes we get bored with it. The cure for banana bread boredom is most definitely these Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls with Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting!
