Picture taken by Pioneer Woman
My children woke me up this morning saying, "Mama, wake up. We're so hungry our stomachs are growling." I usually just throw cereal in a bowl and hand it over. But, today I felt like making something a little different.
I had fresh baked bread I made last night, so I decided to make cinnamon toast. Ooooh, ahhh. I know, it sounds unimpressive, right? But this wasn't just any cinnamon toast, this was Pioneer Woman's cinnamon toast. Let me just say, my children are bowing at my feet and the aroma dragged my husband's sleeping butt out of bed. If you know anything about my husband's sleep patterns, (and why wouldn't you?) not even an earthquake would wake that man.
It tasted really good! Now, you may try it and think it's too sweet. But if you have a sweet tooth like mine, it's not possible for anything to be too sweet.
