Cinnamon Roll Waffles: Pinterest Success!
Ok, cinnamon roll waffles in the waffle iron, this was a must try.  Actually, I categorize it as a Pinterest Success, but only halvies.  I’m a lazy cook, ok?  I wanna eat something yummy but sometimes I just don’t have it in me to to spend even 10 minutes in the kitchen to make it happen.  Why can’t I have a live-in cook, or maid for that matter?  Since I live in reality (unfortunately) I have to deal with the planning, cooking, serving, and the complaining from the kids every time dinner rolls around.  That’s why I was excited to find this pin on Pinteres on how to make cinnamon rolls waffles in your waffle iron.  Buy a pack of pre made rolls (mine are Pillsbury), slap those puppies in a greased heated waffle iron and then smother in syrup.  
I couldn’t bring myself to give this idea two thumbs up.  I mean, granted this is as easy as it looks and even fun to make.  But there seamed to be a lot of unflavored dough, despite the fountain of syrup my kids enjoy.  Not to mention the cleaning up of the waffle iron trumpeted the fast meal.  The kids enjoyed it ok, my Matt and I were left wanting.  If you’re willing to make cinnamon rolls from scratch that I think that would make a hug difference in the taste, but that kind of defeats the ease of the project.  Maybe save this one for a quick breakfast or if the hubby is out of town.  Thumbs up for kids, not so much for adults.
