Cinnamon Rolls

Sassy, Broke & Hungry

Some people are smart. Some people are beautiful. Some people are athletic.

I am none of those things. But DAMN IF I DON’T MAKE THE WORLD’S BEST CINNAMON ROLLS. I know this is a bold statement. But to get through this life you’ve got to market yourself – and cinnamon rolls are my most-marketable quality. Want to win over a guy? Cinnamon rolls. Want your boss to like you? Cinnamon rolls. Need some friends? Cinnamon rolls. Crashed your car? Well, at least you can eat your feelings.

These fat little bundles of Jesus-in-food-form are really special to me. My mom has been making them since I can remember, so this family recipe has a place in my cold, dark heart. Thanks mom 🙂 also, sorry that I’m your worst child.

Slow Roasted Pork Butt – Cook Once, Eat Twice (or More)

What's for Dinner Moms?

Pork Butts (actually shoulder area) have been on sale here lately. They are super cheap and are a great way to cook on the weekend and eat several meals over the week. Once the roast is cooked I sliced it up to eat pork with mashed potatoes and gravy one day, Caramelized pork a second day, and froze some for another meal next week. Inexpensive and cuts down on weekday meal times.


This roast was amazingly delicious! Now, this is NOT something you are going to want to make during the week unless you have 10-12 hours while it cooks at 250 degrees. Yes, 10-12 HOURS but this roast was so juicy and tender! The best part is you can eat for days with the meat from an 8 lb. roast.  My family was picking at it from the moment it came out of the oven.

Tip: Don’t…
