  4. I bought 2 little acorn squash today for your recipe..I was w/ my daughter and she said mom..I HATED peeling those..:) I said I have never peeled mine..every recipe I have for these..baked..stuffed..etc,,skin on..I said this will be my first time and dad can do it:) I told her about your recipe..:)I told Jacques about you tonight..Thinking about you~

  5. Sending good thoughts and lots of prayers your way, Pattie. Chocolate chips in cinnamon buns...genius.

  6. Chocolate chip cinnamon rolls? Heaven!!

    Take good care.


  7. You will have so many positive thoughts coming your way, Pattie, mine included! Looking forward to many more wonderful recipes from you in the future! Your cinnamon buns sound wonderful!

  8. Isn't modern medicine wonderful that they can do something about a wonky heartbeat. I'm sorry you have to go through it, but a pacemaker is so much better than having to live with it. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery. That carmelized apple cake sure looks yummy.

  9. Oh my goodness, I hope everything goes well with the surgery. I will be praying for you and sending lots of good thoughts your way for a speedy recovery.

  10. Oh my Pattie, those both look so good. It's just gone 7 am here and I haven't had my breakfast yet! I am almost drooling at the thought of both the cinnamon rolls and the cake! xxoo

  11. Chocolate chip cinnamon buns, now there is an irresistable hip-maker in the works:D Our thoughts are with you and your precious family.

  12. Pattie, I just tried to post and blogger "ate" it. ;-)

    I'm happy to pray for you and to that end pray in the Lord's name that you have a very successful surgery. I'm thankful that they caught this and figured it out.

    Please know that I am thinking of you and sending you much, much love. I won't be able to follow along on Facebook because I don't do Facebook, so I hope Allie will keep us posted on your blog as well.

    Sending you much, much, MUCH love...



  13. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Pattie!!

  14. I will remember you in my prayers at Mass tomorrow . I like Monique have never peeled an acorn squash!

  15. What a surprise to see birthday greetings to me! Thank you, but we will all be praying for your quick recovery and health for a wonderful full recovery and wonderful future without feeling tired and worring about health concerns. May God Bless you and I know we will all be hearing from you soon. Take care and all of our prayers, Happy birthday and many hugs, Emelia.

  16. I would be even fatter than I am if I lived in your house!! Those chocolate chip cinnamon rolls look sinful, and that apple cake is definitely calling to me!! As busy as you are, you always find time to come up with such wonderful treats!
    Thank you for all your hard work!
