Cinnamon Rolls made in a waffle maker!

It worked! Saw the idea on Pinterest of course!  Take some store bought cinnamon rolls and make them in a waffle maker! So easy and delicious! I didn't have to spray my iron with Pam at all but you might do it the first time just in case. With my particular waffle iron, they were done perfectly when the green light came back on, I wouldn't eat more that one of these as they are so rich, but would be good with a side of eggs!

Hand knit hats for children

These are a few hats I have knitted this past year. I enjoy knitting as it is so relaxing. If you have a request for certain colors, I will make it for you. The strawberry hat will probably fit a 3 to 4 year old. The magenta hat with white flower-a newborn to 6 months. The hot pink with cream flower-2 to 3 year old. These hats are up for sale for $10 each.

Good dessert! Chocolate chip cookie brownies

We were over at a friends house and she had these brownies layered with a chocolate chip cookie. They were so good! She bought the box mix which costs about $4.99 in
the store. Today I made them...I bought 2 box mixes-one a brownie mix and the other a chocolate chip cookie mix. Made them in separate bowls. In a muffin tin, sprayed with Pam, I put a bit of the brownie batter then put a dollop of cookie dough batter on top and baked for 20 minutes. They were so good, only 2 were left at the end of the night! Something new other than the plain old brownie!

Homemade microwave caramels...to die for!

Someone posted a recipe for homemade caramels made in the microwave. My family just loves caramels, so I had to try it. I didn't have butter but replaced it with margarine. I cooked it for a total of 8 minutes as it seemed a bit watery. They turned out so good! They turned out very soft.I would like them a bit firmer. Next time I will use butter to see if the cooking time makes a difference. I sprinkled them with sea salt....delicious. Here is the original recipe. http://www.food.com/recipe/microwave-caramels-367414
