Cinnamon is AWESOME!!!

I don't know about you, but I love cinnamon!  I always add extra when a recipe calls for cinnamon.  There's no such thing as too much cinnamon.  This recipe originally called for 2 tsp.  REALLY???  I had to increase it a bit and I'm so glad I did!

I held an essential oil class at my house yesterday and I made this scrumptious dessert!  Those of you who didn't want to try it really missed out!  IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD!  Hubby and I are enjoying what's left.  Lucky us!!  I can't believe how easy it was to make!

 Cinnamon Cream Cheese Danish

2 pkg. crescent rolls
2 (8 oz) softened cream cheese
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 stick melted butter


½ c sugar
1 Tb. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray 9x12 pan with Pam.  Unroll 1 package of crescent rolls on bottom of pan and pinch seams together.  Mix the softened cream cheeses, ½ cup of sugar, and vanilla together until creamy.  Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crescent roll dough.  Unroll the 2nd package of crescent rolls on top of the cream cheese.  Pinch seams together.  Pour melted butter over the top.  Mix the ½ c sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top.  Bake for 30 min.  Let cool then refrigerate.

Peep, Peep, Peep

The grands came to visit today!!  They are the sweetest little people I know!  They also like to help in the kitchen.  I found this recipe on the internet and saved it just for them.  They each chose a color and told me where they wanted it in the layering.  This is their creation!  They are so excited to have it for dessert tonight!  My little chickies were also excited to eat the leftover Peeps!

Rice Krispy Peep Treats

4 tablespoons butter or margarine (divided into 4 equal pieces)
