Easy 3 Ingredient Strawberry Rolls Recipe

Easy 3 Ingredient Strawberry Rolls

If there is one thing I love, it’s an easy breakfast recipe! Unlike me, my husband and daughter are not morning people. They like to get up around late morning and just hang around allowing themselves to wake up on their own time. (Must be nice right!?). But they do however love breakfast foods. So on weekends I like to make a yummy breakfast for them when they wake up.

One of my daughters favorite foods is strawberry so I try to make sure I incorporate it when I can. I wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but didn’t have some like I thought I did, so I decided to get a little creative and make some of my own! And let me tell you, these Strawberry Rolls that I came up with tasted awesome. I just knew I had to share it with you. I hope you enjoy!

How to make a Bacon Bouquet

Give dad what he really wants for Valentine’s Day or Father’s day, a Bacon Bouquet!! It’s a fun way to give dad something really unique! I found this idea on an Ecard last week, and I knew I just had to give it a try! It’s super easy to make, and is sure to give dad a giggle when he receives it.  The whole process takes about an hour, and 40 mins of that is cook time. It’s also easy enough that you can get your kids involved! My little girl (5) put this all together (minus putting in and taking out of the oven) all by herself!The only problem is trying to cover up the bacon smell while you’re making it!

Here is what you will need to make a Bacon Bouquet

Have a Magical Holiday Experience at HGTV’s Santa HQ

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of HGTV Santa HQ and Reach Orb, but all opinions expressed here are mine.

The holiday bustle is happening. The gifts are being purchased. Everyone is moving so fast, and I am wishing that time would standstill. The kids are getting bigger. The oldest is now taller than our refrigerator; the youngest can now microwave eggs, and my daughter is borrowing my lipgloss. I look at them all, and I think about how lucky I am, and I try my best not to cry.

This weekend we embarked on our yearly tradition to see Santa. The high schooler told me this isn’t happening when he can drive. The middle child was excited and looked for a dress that matched mine, and the youngest hates to dress up, but he did find pants with green on them. The husband came along to enjoy watching our kids with me.

We drove to HGTV’s Santa HQ at Tyson’s Corner Center in the north court. We got out of the car and took a picture of where we were parked because my short term memory is broken. Then my husband grabbed my hand the same way he grabs my heart with his smile. He began to tell us jokes, and his laughter bellows throughout the mall. The kids were embarrassed, and I was glad for once I wasn’t the embarrassing parent. I laugh with him and perhaps at him, but I was joyful that this man that walked beside me is my forever.
