Homemade cinnamon rolls are one of the best Christmas morning treats. If you aren’t a kid anymore and don’t jump out of bed at the crack of dawn to rip open your stocking or anxiously peruse the gifts under the tree, you might still need an early Christmas morning wake-up call. Nothing does a better job at waking the household up from pleasant Christmas eve slumbers, than freshly baking sweet cinnamon rolls wafting throughout the house.

The Best Caramel Corn

by Chrissy

 I would like to introduce the pretty girl behind today’s guest post, my new sister in-law who is also named Lauren. True story.

Disclaimer: this Caramel Corn is truly the BEST of its kind. Some people blame the “holiday season” for gaining a few  pounds, but I proudly owe it all to this stuff.
