April 23 in the morning. I woke up early and prepare some brunch, it was a surprise birthday party for my hubby. I baked him a delicious cinnamon rolls and some of his favorite food. He was in the shower when our friends and family arrived. I am so grateful that my hubby was really surprise for this party and all the food are delicious. I want to share the recipe of cinnamon rolls that I got from Betty Crocker's COOKBOOK.
