My life as a young wife to one, a mother to many and a flawed yet faithful follower of Christ.


Cinnabons, anyone?!

! have a little secret to make anyone do anything I ask: HOMEMADE CINNABONS!  These little dandies are delectable.  Seriously, random strangers will beg at your feet asking for this recipe.  It is A……MAZ…..ING!  They are also quite filling and a single batch of these feed my crew for breakfast with even some leftovers (sometimes).  And that is saying a lot! Try these out and your husband may put you on a golden chaise and carry you around the house feeding you grapes and fanning you with fern leaves!



  • 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup margarine, melted
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon commercial yeast (if you use the regular kind you will have to wait another hour or so for the first rise)


  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Softened butter or soft spread
  • Finely chopped pecans (optional)


  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • OR you can use one can of cream cheese frosting

Mix all the dough ingredients together and knead for about 10 minutes or until dough is nice and elastic/smooth.  Cover and let rest for 10 minutes (if you are using dry active yeast – the non commercial kind – you will have to let it rise for about an hour here) Meanwhile mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon for the filling. After the dough has rested, turn it out on to a lightly floured surface and roll into a 16x20 inch rectangle.  Spread on softened butter or soft spread and sprinkle with filling.  Roll up so that you have a 16 inch spiral dough log.  Cut 12 rolls about 1 – 1 1/2 inches wide and place into a greased 9x13 pan.  Cover and let rise about 45 minutes to 1 hour in a warm place.  After they have risen, pop these puppies into a 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.  Immediately after they come out of the oven spread the icing over the hot rolls and serve!  They are TO DIE FOR!!!  Honestly - all my single ladies: if you have a boyfriend, get ready for a marriage proposal!

Another tip – you can make up this recipe ahead of time and after cutting and placing rolls in pan cover them with plastic wrap and place in fridge.  The next morning put them in a warm spot for about 30 minutes to finish rising.  Bake the same as above.  This saves you some time and makes it possible to have a quick breakfast with little clean up!

Yeah, Jenni and I put them up and realized that they were not working right. Thanks for the new one!
I am feeling great! This pregnancy is really starting to fly by!
We do HS year round - just A LOT lighter in the summer - mostly just keeping up with reading and math and some subject of interest but nothing formal. We switched Maddie to HOP and she LOVES it. Got fed up with TYCTR100. She is reading like crazy now! Hope you guys are well!

Omg nicci! I just made these for breakfast this morning.... They're AMAZING!!!! But, because they're so amazing, I definitely see why you only make these on special occasions!! lol. You WILL ( not maybe), you WILL hurt yourself on these! lol.

About Me:


Hey y'all! Welcome to our family blog. We are a large, loud and Jesus loving family from the rural Midwest. I am Nicci, also know around these parts as "mom" to my brood of a half dozen and as "babe" to my handsome other half.  We live on a handful of acres and have raised chicken, pigs, bees, tomatoes and most importantly our rowdy bunch of kidlets.  We cloth diaper, homeschool, DIY, and try to eat as "homemade" as possible.  My ratio of hobbies verses free time is COMPLETELY unbalanced.  I enjoy crocheting, knitting, sewing, designing, drawing, using power tools, and anything else that involves creating. I also love to decorate and organize when time and money allow - but come on now, it is hard to make it to the bathroom without little people following 2 steps behind me and my grocery bill is comparable to a mortgage payment!  It is a busy, challenging and sometimes chaotic life managing a larger than normal family but ultimately one of God's greatest blessings that I am immensely grateful for!  In no way have I "arrived" or  "figured it all out", but I am humbled to be able to share my experience with others!
