day 8 ~ cinnamon roll coffee cake...

In my house, weekends are slower, well most weekends anyway. I love nothing better than to sit with my guy over a steaming cup of joe and a piece of fabulous coffee cake, warm from the oven. We sit we chat and catch up on the week's activities. 

This is one of my favorite recipes. I love cinnamon and this coffee cake is chock full of it. It's a great to bring to a neighbor or the church buffet.
