Homemade Sticky Caramel Sweet Rolls

Because I didn’t want to pitch the entire batch of muffins (and I was hoping that I could still share the recipe with you), I scraped them out of the pan the best I could, flipped them right-side up and decided to make some caramel sauce to spoon over the top. As you can see, the few extra minutes it took to make the caramel sauce was well worth the effort, and now these Homemade Sticky Caramel Sweet Rolls have a double dose of sticky caramel goodness, which is never a bad thing!

Sheet Pan Lemon Ginger Shrimp with Veggies & Potatoes

To get even cooking for this sheet pan lemon garlic shrimp meal, you’ll have to flip and stir the contents at least once during the roasting period and make sure that all the ingredients are in an even layer when you return them to the heat. You’ll also need to make sure to cut the potatoes into small size chunks, so they’ll cook at the same rate as the shrimp. Then, as soon as the potatoes are fork tender and the shrimp are pink and opaque, dinner is ready.
