Breakfast of Love

With Valentine’s Day just a day away I came up with a great way to surprise your sweetheart with breakfast in bed! Who doesn’t love a delicious meal made with love waking them up on Valentine’s Day? I know I would! All you need is eggs, toast and a heart shaped cookie cutter. Add a strawberry love smoothie or a cup of coffee with chocolate mixed in for a great start to the day!


My kids love cinnamon rolls, and well so do I! I wanted to do something different and so I created the cinna-pockets! These are great for a weekend morning, or freeze them and they can be defrosted for a weekday breakfast on the go before school. It only took about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Here’s what you need:

  1. 1 package refrigerated cinnamon roll dough w/ icing
  2. Rolling pin
  3. an 11 x 13 in baking sheet
  4. Butter or Pam for greasing
  5. 1 medium crimper (or you can do it by hand with a fork)


Here is what you do:

  • Open up the package of cinnamon roll dough, take the individually cut pieces and icing out.
  • Roll out each piece big enough to fit in the crimper. If you don’t have a crimper you can do it without by crimping the edges together with a fork.
  • Place a spoonful in the middle and crimp together.
  • Repeat with remaining pieces.
  • Make sure all edges are crimped together tightly so the icing does not spill out.
  • Place on a greased baking dish and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool, and pour any left over icing over the top. Enjoy!

Careful, they go fast!
