Cinnamon Rolls

Once upon a time, my mom loved Cinnamon Rolls – The End     No… lol. Once upon a time, I knicked a magazine off the airplane – Olive Magazine – and it had mouthwatering pictures of cinnamon rolls right on the front page. Since I couldn’t do anything with that magazine except for dribble [...]
