"Count the memories not the calories."

Today was a snow day! And what a better way to celebrate a victory like this than to enjoy some simple decadence.
After checking and double-checking Twitter, Instagram, and The Weather Network, I cozied up back under the warm embrace of my fluffy goose-down comforter. Zzzz.
Since I consider myself to be more of a night owl than an early bird, mornings are always kind of tough. However, I thrive on lazy mornings. Mornings where I can take my time rolling out of bed, sliding my feet into my bunny slippers, and enjoying a nice cup of jo' without stress and without hurrying myself along. Literal bliss.
So, when I awoke a few hours later, I was in a good, peaceful - dare i say it - cheerful, mood. With a spring in my step, I sauntered downstairs wanting nothing more to make my family feel as lovely as I felt.
And if loveliness were a smell, it would be sweet like nostalgia and brown sugar. So, I decided that the sugary smells of cinnamon rolls would do just the thing, climbing up the oak staircase, creeping under closed doors, and dancing lazily under half-awake dreamers.
Quick, easy, and delicious, this recipe is takes no longer than 15 minutes from start to finish, and it chances are, you will have most of these ingredients on hand!

15 Minute Cinnamon Rolls
* Makes 10 small rolls *
1 package Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 pecans, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Roll out the present dough, creasing serrated edges together.
Brush the melted butter across the dough and sprinkle the brown sugar, raisins, and pecans over top.
At one end, begin rolling the dough into a log. Once the log is formed, cut evenly into 10 pieces.
Carefully place the rolls onto a large, greased baking sheet. Make sure to leave about an inch in between rolls. Bake for 12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
Enjoy with a cup of something hot!
