Brioche Bread

Ok everyone – what is going on with the weather this winter?! I know it is all people can talk about lately, but seriously – will it ever stop snowing? Definitely the worst winter we’ve had in my 6 years in NYC! I walk to work every morning (takes about 25 minutes in case you are curious) and I think I’ve said about 10 times this winter, “Ok that was by far my worst walk yet.” It just keeps getting worse though!  But this morning took the cake (and not the good kind of cake) – freezing rain the entire walk – which was falling on top of snow piles. The result: icy sidewalks and HUGE puddles at each intersection. Fun. But I made it without falling, phew!

And now I can talk about brioche bread, which is definitely cheering me up immediately. There is a stick of butter in each loaf, what’s not to love?!…

So I guess I was wrong – I am into Valentine’s Day! And so I made you a perfect recipe for Valentine’s day – Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies….

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!  …
