Cinnamon Rolls with Pecans and Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Cinnamon Rolls with Pecans and Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I thought long and hard about posting something gooey, buttery, sweet, and out of this world… NOT! I thought about when to post it, not if I was going to post it.

I think this is the perfect time for this recipe. As of next week you are going to start eating rice cakes and carrots because that is your New Year’s resolution, the one that will last for like a minute… okay a week… and before you go and do that to yourself, you will want to dive into something sinful. Something like a homemade cinnamon roll.
