more?

i know i promised knitting today. but i also promised my kids that if school was cancelled again i'd make more cinnamon rolls.  school was cancelled, and so i did.

with frosting this time.

and since i promised a snow-check on the finished-object photo.  there's more cinnamon rolls here today, too.

2 things i forgot to mention about the recipe.  the first: i had no whole milk.  the grocery stores had no whole milk.  the grocery stores had no milk at all.  or eggs or produce or meat in advance of last week's storm.  but my friend naomi had half-and-half, so i used a combination of 2% milk and half-and-half in place of the whole milk and i'd do it again.  and the second: the recipe calls for spraying your pan with non-stick cooking spray, but i smeared my pan with salty butter - because really, at that point, why not?

12-20 inches of fresh snow is predicted to fall here in the next 30 hours.  as long as the electricity (read: heat) stays on, i'm loving it.  

more?

knitting will have to wait until tomorrow.

(oh.  and the wine cork you all noticed in the last post?  that was from the pot-roast we were cooking at the same time.  10am is a bit too early for me to start drinking wine, even during a blizzard!)

These look fantastic! You'll have to share the roast recipe, too, when you get a chance. Happy show day!

Yum! I actually made some cinnamon rolls this morning too. But mine didn't look nearly as nice as yours.

How convenient that I should land here for the first time just as I was keening for a great cinnamon roll recipe! Perfect timing. I cannot wait to give these a go.
