Sweet Cinnamon Brown

I know good food does not necessarily create good mood. But good colors. And smells? Like the warm, sweet smell of cinnamon. Aren’t you glad God gave you a nose.

IMG_3503When this same sensuous warmth transcends to gooey cinnamon rolls, I also thank God that she gave me a mouth to taste and savor the stickiness Cinnamon Rolls bring with them. IMG_3515
Cinnamon is one of the greatest spices the merchants found in the barks of a tree. The Holiday season is just an excuse for me to become a part of a ritual called cinnamon, and give in to this picker upper spice in any form.

Even incarnating my newly-glazed free flowing bowl in the same color!

The easy substantiality of an under-30 minute baked delight with my favorite spice, cascading icing and toasted pecans in each more-ish mouthful, reinstates my faith in Nature’s bounty. Cheers to its colors and flavors.

Dont laugh when I say that I associate cinnamon with sensuality...there is something about its smell which is a big turn on :) I love the pot you have made and what the heck..made frm scratch or store bought--those rolls look delectable.

I don't care if you popped them out of a Pillsbury tube or box - they look marvelous. I can imagine the heavenly fragrance of cinnamon floating from the oven. That this is convenience food matters not. : }
