Cinnamon Rolls

Here we are! Day thirteen! We’re almost there. and today we have another easy almost homemade recipe. Eventually we want to take a stab at fully homemade cinnamon rolls but until then, these will have to suffice.

I mean, is there anything better than bacon and warm cinnamon rolls? These two make a sweet and salty, deliciously warm combination that makes our mouths water just thinking about it.

You can use any brand of store bought cinnamon rolls but we highly recommended, if it’s available Pillsbury Maple Brown Sugar


We actually have another recipe using these bad boys, but that’s not for a few more days. But until then, let our scrumptious bacon rolled cinnamon rolls tide you over.
