Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake

"One of my favorite store-bought shortcut sweets has got to be canned cinnamon rolls. They couldn’t be easier to make and everyone loves them, especially hot from the oven with that delicious drizzle of icing. This recipe takes all of those great flavors up a notch, turning canned cinnamon rolls into a magnificent cinnamon roll french toast bake. It’s great if you want to make breakfast a little extra special but are still short on time and it also adds just a wee bit of protein into our favorite treat." - Christy

"Y’all, this Buttermilk Pecan Coffee Cake is my new favorite breakfast. I’m a huge fan of any streusel topping, so this one gets extra points in my book. And it’s really hard to find a coffee cake recipe with only eight ingredients. I just love the flavor and texture the buttermilk gives this and the Bisquick just makes it so dang easy." - Stacey

Yeast Waffle With Fresh Strawberry Rum Syrup

"Waffles were so new to me and I was not into waffles and pancakes until I tasted my brother-in-law's homemade recipe one late night. He always makes all his desserts from scratch and from fresh fruits, fresh from the fruit stand. So delicious... crispy on the outside and so light and yummy inside." - Connie

Blintzes

"The right cheese is a must! My mother used to make the following cheese filling for these and serve them with light meals (especially after fasting on Yom Kippur) and serve with salmon cakes and smoked fish.
