My mother used to say she understood why the vigils of the great feasts were often days of fast - to spare the cooks having to make the regular meals, while simultaneously laboring to prepare the festal table. Barnacle Boy and I spent some serious time in the kitchen yesterday preparing to celebrate the Solemnity of Easter.
Cinnamon buns are the traditional feast day breakfast item in our house - and I've been working on my recipe for at least the last decade. This version was dubbed by the Boy and I Suessical Cinnamon Buns. The spiral forms were amazing (and the results delicious). If you want the recipe - including how to get the fantastic spirals to form, send me an email.
