  17. Cinnamon Roll Tacos Recipe
    • Cinnamon Roll Tacos Photo
    • I have never been much of a taco lover. I’m fairly certain that has to do with the fact that I ate Taco Bell for dinner at least 4 nights a week when I was in college. Not by choice, more by proximity, because my dorm was way too close to this popular taco chain. …
