Valentine’s Day Apple Cinnamon Pull Aparts

Apple Cinnamon Pull Aparts

Back when I was a senior in college, I took a class called marriage prep. Doug and I had just started dating, and class assignments were a great excuse to talk about different plans and ideas. One of my favorite assignments was to talk about what kind of animal we would be, if we could choose. The professor said some people knew they’d be eagles, flying everywhere, and others would want to be lions or tigers. For me it was easy; a cat! Who wouldn’t want to relax all day long? Doug chose eagle, which totally baffled me because it seems like a lot of work!

One of the other things the professor talked about was keeping the romance alive. I thought it was an interesting topic since hardly anyone in the class was married. He talked about natural aphrodisiacs, and the one that he mentioned was cinnamon. So, here I am 12 years later and I get an email from Christina’s mother-in-law talking about relaxing with cinnamon (she sells doTerra). I felt like this was a sign that it might be time for a cinnamon recipe to help light the spark this Valentine’s Day!

This is a wonderful recipe for a perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast. You put everything together the night before, and then you bake it for twenty minutes when you wake up. My kids think this is amazing, and it also makes a great brunch dish. If you’re looking for something to help make Valentine’s Day special from the moment you wake up, this is the recipe for you. I’m not suggesting you need to bring the spark back into your marriage, but who doesn’t love cinnamon?!

p.s. If you’re curious, I got an A in marriage prep, which lets me know that in any argument Doug and I might ever have (which is hardly never!), I would be right!
