4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, just melted (not boiling)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
CREAM CHEESE GLAZE:
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2-ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
Prepare the cinnamon filling: In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Scoop the filling into a quart-sized heavy zip baggie and set it aside (see *Tips below).
Prepare the glaze: In a small pan, heat the butter over low heat until melted. Turn off the heat and whisk in the cream cheese until it is almost smooth. Sift the powdered sugar into the pan, stir and add in vanilla extract. Set the pan aside while you make the pancakes.
Prepare the pancake batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the milk, egg and oil, just until the batter is moistened (a few small lumps are fine).
Cook the pancakes: Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-heat and spray with nonstick spray. Use an ice cream scoop (or 1/3 cup measuring cup) to add the batter to the pan. Use the bottom of the scoop or cup to spread the batter into a circle (about in diameter). Reduce the heat to medium low. Snip the corner of your baggie of cinnamon filling and squeeze the filling into the open corner. When your pancake begins to form bubbles, add the filling. Starting at the center of the pancake, squeeze the filling on top of the pancake batter in a swirl (just as you see in a regular cinnamon roll). Cook the pancake 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bubbles begin popping on top of the pancake and it’s golden brown on the bottom. Slide a thin, wide metal spatula underneath the pancake and gently but quickly flip it over. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the other side is golden as well. When you flip the pancake onto a plate, you will see that the cinnamon filling has created a crater-swirl of cinnamon. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, and repeat with the remaining pancake batter and cinnamon filling. Re-warm the glaze briefly, if needed. Serve pancakes topped with a drizzle of glaze.
What brave new world is this?!
I have serious need for this.
So I was asking an older female friend, whom has been divorced for about 20 years and hasn’t had a relationship pretty much since the divorce, what I should do in her opinion about my marriage.
The past week or so I feel like I am caving in and letting my husband have a chance at redeeming himself. I felt like I had my mind set that I am just done. My heart is so afraid of letting the wall down because I don’t want to be hurt again. If I let him in I am bound to be disappointed. I’m just not up for it. The wall stays up…then he is nice to me…makes things feel normal….I feel guilty about keeping this wall up. But don’t want to get hurt.
My friend told me to relax. Bring down the wall. How is hubby supposed to try to fix this/prove himself….if I have a wall up and not giving him a chance to do so? Good question…very true.
I would like to be on better terms with him especially for our son. I need to let go of this pain and frustration. It isn’t doing anyone any good. I need to focus on the present not on the past hurts.
It is just so hard. I want to be free of the heart ache. I’ve been a little better but still sad inside. I still find it very hard to talk to him. I want him to be as upset as I am about our marriage but he doesn’t even see that it isn’t working. So I end up just pushing him away. I dunno what to do. I’m trying to take it moment by moment.
I still feel a glimmer of hope and I don’t know it is real.
I’m so thankful for food. THIS food, in particular. Sources can be found by clicking the pictures.
I would explain this adorably delicious finger-food to you, but I’m too busy salivating. Luckily the title is displayed in the picture.
Three last words: OM. NOM. NOM.

I am strong but I am really feeling drained from dealing with the manipulation. Just so sick of it. Dunno if I can do this all the way to the dead line I put for myself but I have to. Need to get more financially stable.
Every moment keeps getting harder and harder. I just want to say Fuck you we are getting a divorce and I am leaving!
I talked to a lawyer the other night and she gave me some info as to where to start. I have another friend who has a lawyer that she is going to give me her number.
I HATE living with this man.
I have a nice headache brewing right now. Tylenol PM will hopefully take care of it. GN
I planned ck in dates once a month to make sure I am still feeling the same…I want out of this marriage. Things don’t really seem bad coming from his end of the story but I think I have been extra bitchy toward him and not wanting to put up with his bs more than usual. I hate living with this man. Hate the udder disrespect I get. All I get are words….an apology…wow yippie give me a fing break! Give me action show me you’re sorry dude! WTF! OUT can’t come soon enough. Irritated. Hoping my nerves will calm down so I can sleep. Actually made myself a drink to chill out a little. Hope it works. Thank you everyone for your posts and making me smile:-)
Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies of the Day: Obvious questions: Why didn’t we think of this? And is it too early to start thinking about dessert?
Ok. That’s it. I want these instead of cake for my birthday. That’s a good excuse, right? I wonder if they ship well…I could send some to my “twin,” too!
