If you could visit another country, other than the one you live in, where would you want to go?  If you’re a traveler, where is your favorite travel destination?

The recipe for these cinnamon rolls is featured in my recently released cookbook;  In the sweet of it.  The e-book version is very affordable.  It offers 90 pages of my favorite recipes and full-page photos to drool over, all for the low price of $4.99!
