I decided that I was going to make cinnamon rolls for Easter Sunday brunch. I made the dough the day before and split it in half. I filled some with strawberries and the other half with apple butter. Strawberries are far too watery. I should have known better on that one but they all ended up in the bin a sticky doughy mess! Whoops!

When in Doubt, Add Butter is this month’s selection for book club. An enjoyable, lighthearted and fun read. It would be a perfect summer beach read. I’m not going to the beach anytime soon but a nice warm sunny day in the backyard would work too!

A bowl of brown bananas has to be used for banana bread, and luckily the variations for banana bread are pretty endless!
