I am an extremely organized person. Schedules and to-do lists and calendars: I love all of them. But when it comes to keeping my cabinets organized…well that, I am not quite as good at. I like to make excuses and blame the fact that I don’t have enough space in my small apartment for everything, but I know that my pantry could be a lot more organized.

These rolls are absolutely delicious and could not be prettier.  This is what I call a showstopper of a fall breakfast!
