I have never made homemade cinnamon rolls...
...until last week!
I was always pretty intimidated, but was convinced by the rave reviews and great instructions on this post by Robyn Stone at Add A Pinch to give it a try! The recipe makes a LOT, but they can be frozen, or shared. :)
Evan is a big cinnamon roll fan, and loved these... Me, too!
I actually ran out of time and made these in two days. After the part where you cut and lay them in the pan, I covered the pan well in plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight. I gave them their second rise the next morning, by letting them sit above a warm toaster oven. Ever tried Saigon cinnamon or creme bouquet flavoring? I'd never heard of these, but after reading different recommendations, I've been using them in my baked goods.
All I can say is "Wow!"
Wish I could share one with you!

Wills Kitchen: Mexican Cornbread Casserole
Winter Storm Quinn dropped 7 inches of snow on us today. A great day to stay in and make a hearty meal!
I had some Jiffy Cornbread Mix I had to use up and found a recipe that I thought Evan and I would both like...
Wills Kitchen Mexican Cornbread Casserole-- recipe here. Delicious! (Only Evan's side got the jalapeños)
It looks like Will has some other great recipes, too!
Soughdough Dinner Rolls
I'm a big bread lover, and have really enjoyed trying different bread recipes. I was intimidated to try sourdough bread till one of the recipe blogs I follow posted a recipe, with a link to how to make an easy 'starter'. So, I made it-- and so glad I did! It's a simple recipe that just involves some waiting time. The easy Sourdough Starter Recipe I used is here, and the Sourdough Rolls Recipe is here. Great thing is, the 'starter' keeps in the refrigerator, so I'll be ready to go next time. :-) Try it, you'll like it!
M E R R Y B A K I N G !
I had some fun in the kitchen trying these new (to me), very easy and delicious recipes!
How about you? Try anything new? How did yours turn out?
