Delight them “Irish Style” when they wake up on St. Patrick’s Day with Shamrock shaped cinnamon rolls. This recipe adds a twist to the traditional cinnamon roll and makes it unique and fun. Plus who doesn’t like waking up to the smell of cinnamon rolls in the morning.
2 cans Great Value Cinnamon Rolls with icing
Shamrock Cinnamon Roll Recipe Directions
Unroll the Great Value Cinnamon rolls.
Take the first cinnamon roll and start rolling the ends toward the middle (it will resemble a heart) . When the spirals look the same, pinch the dough one half of the roll then start rolling the dough from the unrolled end to form a matching spiral. When each spiral looks the same, pinch the dough between the two spirals to make a point at the bottom.
Repeat with two more rolls.
Arrange the heart shaped rolls into a shamrock shape on your cookie sheet.
Take 1 Cinnamon Roll to use for stems and cut off a small piece. Place under the heart shaped rolls.
Repeat with remaining Great ValueCinnamon Rolls.
Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.
Remove from oven and glaze with included frosting.
*I love cooking with the Great Value Cinnamon Rolls. They have the same quality as Name Brands but for a fraction of the cost*

I still remember being in 1st grade and reading Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham. I could probably recite most of the book if I was inclined to try but I do digress. I also remember the day they made us try Green Eggs and Ham. I was not an adventurous kid and did not like to try new things. My mom learned the hard way once with Pierogies. However, surrounded by class mates I was not going to be the only one not trying it. I soon realized that it tasted the same as regular eggs and ham. Now that I am older my palate is slightly more expanded and I want more flavors with dishes. I have amped up my recipe so that I get the flavor but it is not too much to turn off for my children.
1 can spinach, drained (You could also use fresh spinach)
1 cup ham (diced)
1 tsp butter/margarine (you may also substitute cooking spray)
½ cup mozzarella cheese
Green Eggs and Ham Directions
In a medium bowl, wisk eggs together.
In a separate bowl mix together chopped ham and spinach
Preheat a medium skillet and melt butter to coat the bottom of the pan.
Pour in egg mixture to pan and cook as you would for scrambled eggs
In a small skillet heat up the ham mixture till it is warm.
Combine the ham mixture with the egg mixture and top with cheese.
Remove from heat and serve with toast.

The best thing about being a mom is finding things to do with your kids that create memories. We find recipes kids can make with a little bit of parental support. I find the easier the recipe the better. I also try to teach math and reading while making recipes in the kitchen. It is important to me that my kids eat healthy. It is also important that they learn to listen, work together, and try something new. When you chose to find recipes that kids can make you teach them more than a recipe and sometimes you can even get them to try something new.
Waffles are easy to make. I was in a hurry so I grabbed my waffle maker and then we sprayed it with olive oil. We allowed it to heat up. When it was heating up we made waffle mix.
You will need
1 cup of flour
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of salt
1 cup of milk
and some melted butter, I use 2 1/2 tablespoons
I mix the dry ingredients first then I add in the egg, milk, and butter. I mix them until blended. DO not over mix. I leave my mixture sitting for about two minutes then I pour it in the waffle maker.
****If you want to make the recipe festive for St. Patrick’s Day simple add in some food coloring prior to cooking.
