Roll and cut

I am showing off my first ever batch of Cinnamon Rolls. I have always just eaten my mother's or bought the Rhode's Rolls ez ones. I know that this probably isn't a big deal to most people, but I don't cook/back much, just ask J, so this was a little scary/hard/new for me to do. There have been times where I try and make something new and it turns out really bad, again just ask J. When I told J I was making these and I asked it I should try to bring him one at work I included in the sentence "if they taste ok." His response was "yeah if they taste good." I don't blame him after some of the things I have tried to make. My mom will be proud that I finally opened the Kitchen Aid that she got me for Christmas last year (2006). She might be a little sad that I didn't use her recipe, but I don't have it so I tried this one. It took me a little (lot) longer than it said it would but all in all I think they taste good and I learned some things if I ever decide to do it again.
I wish I could share these, because I know I am just going to eat too many of them myself.
I laughed when I looked at this one because as you can see my prego tummy got in it too. I guess that is where these bad boys are headed - into my belly.
My sister wanted to see my new hair cut so I put this on here for her.

Looking good there Xtina. If you hadn't pointed out the belly, I wouldn't have noticed as I was salivating over the buns.

3 hours to make them though?! Good grief.

(Now, when are you going to break out the other thing in the big box -- you know what I'm talking about!)

I am so impressed! They look wonderful. I have never made homemade cinnamon rolls before, and if it really takes that long I don't know if I ever will! I sure do love them though. That picture with your belly poking out is too cute!
