Skillet Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Frosting

IMG_1493

I have one question for you today – is there anything better than homemade cinnamon buns? Honestly, I haven’t made a batch of cinnamon buns in a long time, {pure craziness I know}, but his past Saturday I had such a craving for them, I had absolutely no choice but to make a fresh batch.

Now I have always had a little bit of a thing for cinnamon buns – and by a little thing I mean I’m basically addicted to them {you can read all about my cinnamon bun addiction in my previous post for Dark Chocolate Espresso Cinnamon Buns}.

However; I guess because it had been so long since I had actually made & eaten a batch of classic cinnamon buns, I forgot just how incredibly special they are, and I just can’t help but think that they really are the best thing to bake for a weekend breakfast in all of the land.

Dark Chocolate Chunk Muffins

IMG_4699

I have a serious soft spot in my heart for a good, classic chocolate chip muffin. Just the thought of sitting down with a warm, chocolate chip muffin and an ice cold glass of milk gets me all warm and fuzzy inside.

I guess chocolate chip muffins just have a way of bringing back happy childhood memories for me because when my brothers and I were still little, and my mom had to bring us along with her to the mall, she would always reward us with a special treat at the end of our trip if we were well behaved while she did her shopping. The kind of treat would change depending on which mall we happened to be in on a given day, but there was one mall close to home that used to have the most amazing muffin shop in the food court that she would often take us to.

Chocolate Velvet Pie

If you have spent more than roughly thirty seconds on my blog, you will know that it’s no secret that I kind of have a special relationship with chocolate. But for those of you who are just meeting me, let me just say this… I love chocolate. I literally have zero self control when it comes to chocolate. Once I have a piece, I can’t stop until I have consumed the entire chocolate supply.

And since we’re getting to know each other, I should probably tell you that I also love pie. Suffice to say, the idea of chocolate and pie coming together in a magical harmony of homemade, baked deliciousness is pretty much my idea of heaven.

Chewy Mini Egg Cookies

Confession; my favourite part about Easter is the Cadbury Mini Eggs…..Well okay, if I’m being really honest, my real favourite thin about Easter is the Easter egg hunts, and hunting for said Mini Eggs.

I was just a little embarrassed to admit that before, seeing as how I’m now considered an adult, and therefore probably shouldn’t love Easter egg hunts as much as I still do… but I really do. Besides I tell you guys everything now anyways so what’s a little extra Easter embarrassment, right?

Apple Pie Baked Breakfast Oats

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… I’m a freak for oatmeal. Seriously, I could eat it all day everyday, and never get sick of it. No joke, oatmeal for breakfast, lunch and dinner is kind of my definition of heaven.

Warm oatmeal, cold oatmeal, overnight oats, baked oatmeal, stove top oatmeal… whatever the type just hand me a spoon and I’ll be a happy camper.

Raspberry Jam Donuts with Vanilla Sugar

Cole loves it when make homemade donuts. In fact, I would venture so far as to say that homemade donuts are probably his favourite baked goodie for me to whip up.

For whatever reason Cole will never admit to me that he has one favourite treat – because as he says “everything you make is delicious” – but I know his secrets.

So when he came down to the kitchen this past Sunday morning to find these homemade Raspberry Jam filled Vanilla Sugar Donuts sitting on the kitchen counter – let’s just say I wasn’t surprised when his eyes lit up like a child’s on Christmas Day.

So I officially have Spring fever…. and it’s not even Spring yet.

I can’ help myself –  As soon as the birds start chirping outside our bedroom window in the morning, and it starts to stay light outside for longer, I always get giddy and super impatient as we wait for the official coming of Spring.

It kinda happens to me every year… do you get Spring fever too? Yes!?  Yay! Then let’s stand together in our pursuit of all things related to Spring 😀
