Quick Sour Cream Cinnamon Rolls

Boy, has it been a LONG week … For the second time in three weeks I have gone AWOL, and I am sorry for that.  I was hoping that after my last bout of family related drama things would quiet down, but it was not to be.  Last week my father was feeling a little funny, and his blood pressure was pretty high, so he went to the hospital.  After testing they found that he would need bypass surgery … sooner rather than later.  He...

Apple Carrot Maple Cakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Nothing makes me happier than when I can combine two things I love into one thing I really love! I love apple cake and I love carrot cake.  While looking at some apples in the market I noticed carrots on sale also, and inspiration struck!  Why not combine the two?  Tart apples, sweet carrots, warm spices, moist cake … how can that be anything but good?   To increase the yum factor I added a bit of some fabulous dark maple syrup...
