Alternatively titled “How to take a perfectly healthy recipe and turn it into the reason I’m having to go to the gym”
I have several recipe blogs in my reader that I like to pounce on whenever they’re updated, because even though I have the best intentions of menu planning for two weeks at a time, the reality is that most afternoons at 4:00, I’m scrounging the recipe search engines to type in the ingredients that I have on hand.
Water chestnuts? Check. (I still haven’t figured out a way to use them since last January.)
One of my favorite recipe blogs is Lynn’s because her recipes are quick and easy to make, and best of all, they’re consistently good. A couple of days ago, she posted this recipe for honey cinnamon rolls that really caught my attention because “sweet” and “bread” are my love languages because they were a healthy version of a favorite food of mine.
I could take the rest of my morning and go through the drama in which I ran out of key ingredients (cooking spray so I substituted butter, frozen bread dough so I used parkerhouse rolls), had faulty ingredients (hello, brick-hard brown sugar that had to be subdued with a meat tenderizer), and flat out mis-read the recipe because I was in such a hurry to get to the eating part. But that would bore you.
Instead, I leave you with pictures of the process (which took mere minutes and resembles Lynn’s recipe except for the healthy part but turned out delicious nonetheless).
Thanks, Lynn, for the advice and inspiration!
Have a nice day.
