Life Gets Messy Sometimes

Things have been a little crazy lately.  Lots going on.  Swim, ballet, school, and cabana season rapidly upon us.  Eeeeek!  Well, in my ever present quest to make everyday as good as it can be, I stumbled upon a recipe for cinnamon rolls on the Pioneer Woman's blog. recipe  They looked so good, and although I knew my children would not like the frosting, the rolls themselves looked delicious.  What is a girl to do?  Well, get her husband to make them.  hee hee

And here they are.....don't they look beautiful!

here they are all frosted and tasty

And yes, I know that is a lot of frosting.   The children simply couldn't wait to dig in.  How could you not?  Well, I will tell you.....As soon as I pulled these beautifully golden rolls out of the pan, they were totally unbaked.  Seems that Phil missed the last line on the page where it said to cut them 3/4 to 1 inch thick.  He cut them closer to 3.  So, although the tops were beautiful....the inside was mush.  Needless to say the children were greatly dissapointed.  And boy did I have a mess to clean up.  
Since then, Phil has gotten quite good at making the rolls.  The children now want them everyday!  Phil is not happy as they take quite a bit of time to prepare.  But, let me tell you....they are well worth it!

Oh, and in case you are wondering about the frosting.  The first batch we made...the one oozing with sugary goodness...that was 1/2 of the recipe of frosting.  It was supposed to frost 16 rolls.  Since Phil had used 1/2 the dough to make 8 rolls.........
