A lovely friend gave me Nigella Lawson’s How to Be a Domestic Goddess cookbook. I’ve tried a few things out of it, all of which came out scrumptious, but I’ve had my eye on the cinnamon rolls for a while. I made them, from scratch! And doubled the recipe to boot, so I could bring the bounty in to work. It took quite some time, a very time-intensive project indeed, but they came out heavenly. The edges were browned with butter and sugar and crunched ever so slightly, and the dough is really great. I topped mine with cream cheese frosting and fresh blueberries, which the book did not recommend, but I loved the extra sweet with the slight tart of the blueberries. I’d make these every day if they were easier and not so fatty.
Half of my week was disintegrated with a very unfortunate dental headache; apparently the guy who filled a cavity last year did a bang up job and I had to have a crown put on. OMG this was the most horrible experience of my life. I hate the dentist yet I have such an unquenchable sweet tooth. Hours in the chair coupled with a business trip to Spokane and my week’s over with so little work accomplished and so much that piled up. I’m feeling overwhelmed and spent and buried. But, it’s summertime and almost the weekend, so this week will be over shortly, whether it’s ready or not.
