Birthday, Easter, Birthday, Birthday - that has been the last 10 days here in our household! Plus, the eldest daughter from San Diego, CA is HERE. That has been fun just having her here and being able to be here for birthdays and Easter is an added bonus. She is taking me out for lunches and such which is always fun so there hasn't been much cooking going on here - except for breakfasts. Yesterday she wanted pancakes so I made pancakes. Today, Heather turned 21 and she wanted caramel rolls for breakfast so that is what I made today for breakfast! In case your house hasn't been like mine filled with birthday's and treats - here is a treat you can whip up for lunch boxes and dessert after supper too!
