Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls

Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls

The cinnamon rolls, pre-icing. I didn’t have a chance to eat one, but the reviews were good and they made my home smell like Christmas.


And pumpkin pie! I don’t like pie. So I didn’t eat any of this either. But hot damn, I was so impressed with my pie making skills. It was so pretty and my family loved it. Never mind my friend Andrew came over to help bake and we had to go back to the store twice for ingredients I missed. Oy to the vey.

What I did eat: all the turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green chile corn casserole and cranberry relish in southern Arizona. Yum.

And then I ate the Scottdale region’s portion this morning at my desk for leftovers. (Yes, you can use your best Nancy Drew skills to deduce that I am not doing so great on that 30 pound weight loss.Ā  Although I did hire a trainer who I’m pretty sure learned her techniques from the gestapo. And now that I’m through Carbfest 2010, I’ve got a company Christmas party and a trip to Africa to think of, I imagine I’ll refocus. )*

Now, on to Christmas decorating and planning/plotting/scheming! Yahoooo!


*If you can’t find me, I’m on the elliptical. Dreaming of bagels.

  1. And, how do you not like pie?? (Yummy-looking cinnamon rols and pumpkin pie there. Bummer you have to work today.) Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I adore you AmazinGirl. It looks like you and yours had a fabulous Turkey Day. I felt especially Thankful this year, as I’m sure you did. šŸ™‚
    We had 14 family members over for our festivities. You’ll be horrified to know we ordered our feasts from SuperTarget and our guests brought additional home-made sides and desserts…we had copious Merlot and Chardonnay and Shiraz thanks to Trader Joe’s, and the whole thing was DEEEELICIOUS (and the bonus was I actually got to spend time with our guests this year rather than squirreled away in the kitchen with my best friend, the oven). And I think, a good time was had by all… And now my dear, I’ll be joining you in hours upon the eliptical…but pumpkin pie? Man, is it worth it!

  3. How did you not eat a cinnamon roll? šŸ™‚ Those look delicious! Happy to know that you had a great holiday.

  4. You don’t like pie? That’s just not right. I will forgive this otherwise unpardonable offense if you provide me with your green chile corn casserole recipe. =)
