Cinnaholic = JOY

Cinnaholic = Joy yep, that’s all I could come up with as a title to this post. Joy is not a word I use often, but it’s what popped into my head when I was thinking about how I felt when I finally got to Cinnaholic. You could say I’m a little crazy (cuckoo, nutso, […] Read more…

Breakfast ’round These Here Parts

Just for fun, I thought I’d post some photos of a typical breakfast around our house. I know for some people it’s easy to skip breakfast even if you know that it’s not good for you to do so. I’m not much of a cereal eater and I’m not fond of starting my day with […] Read more…

The obsession begins… I haven’t made this recipe yet because I keep forgetting […] Read more…
