I finally did it.  What is it, you ask?  I made cinnamon rolls!  They are one of those bucket list cooking items that I have been wanting to make for ages, but just haven’t attempted.  They kind of scared me for two main reasons.  One, because I thought they would be really hard to make.  And two, because I was worried I would eat the entire pan.  Well I can’t really help you with number 2, because these are amazing.  You might eat the whole pan.  But making them?  That I can help you with!  I can’t lie, they are not the easiest thing in the world to make, but they are definitely worth the effort.  And, they only take an hour to make – yep that’s right, one hour cinnamon rolls!  In the world of bread baking, that is nothing!  …

Happy Sunday! It is bright and sunny here in NYC, a nice change from yesterday when it snowed literally the entire day. But I didn’t mind – it gave me an excuse to bake the day away, starting with these chocolate chip cinnamon muffins. Not that I need an excuse to bake all day :) Plus when you’re all warm and cozy inside, the snow is so pretty. It made the city look so calm and peaceful. It wasn’t quite as pretty and peaceful when I left to go out to dinner. The streets were not plowed, so let’s just say our cab did not have the easiest time driving! Ah the joys of city living….

It is December 1 – let the Christmas recipes begin! I have a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit until Thanksgiving and my birthday have passed. But once they are over, I start to get so excited about Christmas. TheBetterHalf and I just got back from an amazing trip to Paris and Brussels (more to come about our trip in a future post) and both cities were all decked out for Christmas. It was gorgeous, and got me in such a festive mood!

So when I woke up at 5:00am this morning because of jetlag, naturally my thoughts immediately went to Christmas baking. And since it is a weekend morning, I focused on doughnuts, one of our favorite weekend breakfasts since I bought my Donut Pan.  And so gingerbread donuts were born!  …

It is no secret that I’m putting pumpkin in everything these days.  I talked about it earlier this week when I made pumpkin coffee cake.  It is also no secret that I love to bake bread!  Just look at all of these recipes. It is really one of my favorite things to do on a lazy Sunday. There is nothing better than the smell of freshly baked bread in your house.  TheBetterHalf is pretty spoiled – I can’t remember the last time we had store bought bread!…
