Autumn Loves....

AUTUMN is coming slowly to SWEET NOTHINGS...
It, so far, is mostly IN THE KITCHEN....
THESE, ABOVE,.....
HOMEMADE....FROM SCRATCH....BROWN SUGAR ICING
ARE NOT MINE...
THEY belong to COOKING WITH K 
AND you can go HERE for her luscious recipe. 

I take the time to make homemade when I can...
but, when I CAN'T...
I DO THIS...
Keep cans of ORANGE CINNAMON ROLLS in the fridge AT ALL TIMES !
Heaven forbid that we wake up, ready for ORANGE CINNAMON ROLLS and
THERE ARE NONE !
I melt a little BUTTAH...and slather it ALL OVER THOSE ROLLS...
then, I add just a little LOW FAT CREME CHEESE on the tops...
sprinkle on a tad more CINNAMON...I do love me some extra Cinnamon...
sprinkle with pecans and POP IT ALL IN THE OVEN....
and.....WAIT

NOW...I must say that once these BAD BOYS are baked..
it's a tad bit hard to spread that luscious ORANGE icing over the pecans.....but...it works.
The taste of the roasted pecans just about KNOCK YOUR SOX OFF...sooo good.
Once that icing dries, the pecans are locked in and EVERYthing is....
READY TO EAT... ♥♥
I just LUV tiny little pumpkins...

O....there's NO doubt that HOMEMADE are MUCH better.
I aim to try HER recipe, just as soon as I can.
"Thanks, K"
IN THE MEANTIME...
these store-bought, DRESSED up just a little,
will curb the craving of a REALLY GREAT ROLL.

I have not had these rolls in years but they are good and they way you do them they must be even better. I would weigh 300lbs if I kept them in the frig all the time as I have zero impulse control!

Eileen said...

Everything looks beautiful and delicious. :) We have an old cinnamon bun recipe that's been in the family forever that makes the most delicious (and fattening) buns ever. Of course, it literally takes all day to make them, but it's worth it. Stop by The Pink Home if you get a chance. :)

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Your cinnamon rolls look YUMMY!!! Love the little white pumpkins, too!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I love the orange rolls BJ! When the boys were toddlers they actually had little bits of orange rind in the icing, those were extra good! Bet the pecans are amazing:@)

Richard Cottrell said...

I got a good ideal from your blog, I hope you do not mind. I am having an out door party in a week and need center pieces that do not cost a lot. I am going to use muffin pans and fill some with little pumpkins and some with candles. I got this brain storm after I saw your little caddy done that way. Thanks, Richard from My Old Historic House.

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

How clever are you!! I think they call that semi-homemade and I am a fan :)

Blessings!

oh man. I just made fresh coffee and how good would 3 - um , I mean 1 of those be with it:)
you sure know how to improve on things.. you can bet there;ll be some orange icing buns on my grocery list. my neighbor just brought me a 5 lb. bag of pecans from VA, so I'll crush and use those.. I gain a lb. every time I visit here. lol

Cozy Little House said...

Yep, I'm leaving here hungry once again. You have the best-looking food in blog land, BJ!

Yep...I am with Olive...love them, can't buy them, and really, I gotta stay away from Walmart now too!!!

Kathleen Grace said...

I haven't had the Pillsbury orange rolls ina ges and you are right they are good! But...BJ... you let the icing sit long enough to harden? Really? How do you have the self control? I always eat them warm:>)

Vee said...

Yes, and this way you're always prepared no matter what. That's what my mama used to say about the extra cans of baked beans. She could whip up something tasty on the spur of the moment no matter what. And cinnamon rolls are better than beans any day!

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Fresh bread is the best! I could live on it ;-) I made some great orange rolls with a cream cheese icing...it's been a while, though.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Mmmmm..I can almost smell them, bj! I have no problem doing semi home made for the convenience of it! Happy Foodie Friday! Come enter my give away :)

Julie Harward said...

Cinnamon rolls are my very favorite kind of food...I could live on them with cold milk! Love the pumpkins! ;D

Jacqueline said...

Oh, BJ, these are fantastic. I love those little devils too when I want something quick. Love the pecans peeking through the frosting.

KATHY said...

I am glad I am full at the moment because these buns would go straight to my buns. Pretty white pumpkins too! Loving your Fall decor and all your yummy touches.

Autumn came very quickly. A couple weeks ago it was in the 90s. This weekend it is going to drop into the 30s. Burr

Kelly said...

those rolls look scrumptious! I know that my husband would love those because he's always buying those pillsbury orange rolls at the store.

Pondside said...

I'm sure I'm getting chubby just reading your posts! I'll be making the pumpkin cinnamon buns this weekend. I don't think we can buy the refrigerator rolls here (good thing!)

The French Hutch said...

Those orange rolls are so delicious for a quick Saturday morning treat with coffee. I'll try you recipe with the added pecans. Your Fall kitchen touches look great, love the white pumpkin. It's Fall inside my kitchen here, to hot to even thing about Fall on the porch. The weather man says this will change this weekend. Hope to find a white pumpkin for the porch. Have a great weekend bj.

BJ, this is such a lovely post. I usually don't get that excited about fall, but this post makes me happy. Your decor is lovely, and the yummy morning treats are pretty, too. *nice post*

Mr. Art @ Home has had a difficult week, so I baked Overnight Raspberry French Toast this morning. I need to make from fresh tea and enjoy the day!

xoxoxo,
Ricki Jill

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers said...

Yummy! I haven't had those rolls in a long time. I think they will be in my shopping cart the next time I go to the store.
Hugs,
Penny

Beverly said...

Um yum, BJ! You've got me licking my screen. Will you pass me one of those to have with my coffee?♥

I hope to see you this weekend for Pink Saturday.♥♥♥

Debbie said...

Do you know why I really love this blog? It's because you have such a variety. Really... You are either cooking or decorating or just chatting, and often all in the same post. I really like that.

This one made me want to copy in more than one way.

Mmm...I can smell the cinnamon from here!

I love white pumpkins. I was just thinking...did they even have white pumpkins years ago? I certainly don't remember seeing them until the past few years!
