3 Moms ~ 3 Kitchens ~ 31 Days / Day 2 Meals plus Recipes

I didn’t prepare for Friday’s breakfast. Usually I have bread for French toast or whole wheat flour in the freezer but I had neither on Friday morning because I went to bed early with a headache on Thursday night. I didn’t want to wake anybody up with the grain mill, so I decided to make some of Kate’s delicious cinnamon rolls, since those are made with white flour.

These rolls are so good, and so bad for you! The kids love them and they are quick and easy.

Cinnamon Rolls

  • 1 T yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T dry milk powder
  • 4 cups white flour


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 T water
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together, but don’t add all flour at once, add slowly. Knead into a ball, divide into 2 pieces. Roll out both pieces into large rectangles and spread with: 1/4 c. softened butter, 1 C. brown sugar and 3 T. cinnamon. Roll up and cut into rounds. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes or so. Drizzle with the icing.

For lunch, we were out of bread, so I made whole wheat lemon poppy seed muffins. We had those with fresh fruit and carrot sticks. Some of the kids also had sliced cheese and lunch meat.

For dinner we were on our field trip so we had pizza and cookies. This was definitely not one of our better days as far as healthy eating, but we survived long enough to eat our whole grain waffles the next morning. Pictures and recipes to come…

  1. Hi Toni,
    Oh my goodness, those cinnamon rolls look really unhealthy but oh, so delicious.
    I’m afraid my kids would want them all of the time

  2. Where have you been all my life, lol? Seriously, I am a Mom with ADHD, big time. I have been married 12 years and have an 11 yr old daughter and 9 yr old son. You are my inspiration that keeps me going each day. I discovered your site December 1st and now have a binder where I print a page of your good information each day. Love everything you post, so I hope you will keep up the good work. The front of my 3-ring binder has a plastic cover with insert, so I’ve inserted a housecleaning list I use everyday (hope you will post yours) and the pages begin Dec 1 and each day shows a new page. Best of wishes to you and the other two moms.
