Cranberry Upside Down Coffeecake

Confession. I’m a giant bookworm. It’s a condition that dates back to my early childhood. My parents have time-lapse video from Christmases long past where I don’t move from the same armchair for over 10 hours. I’m a constant figure as the room buzzes with holiday activity around me. Motionless, except the occasional turning of a page. My favorite place to be is completely engrossed in a great novel, oblivious to the world passing me by. As such, it’s no great surprise that I’ve always wanted to host a book club. I was recently given the opportunity to start one with friends, and I jumped at the chance. Books and my best gals? Win-win. Bonus prizes for me include the excuse to use my grandmother’s dainty teacups, and making delicious treats for my guests. I began with this amazing cranberry upside down coffeecake.

The World’s Greatest Cinnamon Rolls

You know what’s great? The little lip balms that look like mini eggs. Piano music on a blustery day. Smiley face stickers. Finding a ten-dollar bill in an old purse. Laughing so hard you cry a little. And most of all…cinnamon rolls. Specifically, these cinnamon rolls. The best EVER. No, I’m not kidding. They are perfection.

Baked Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken

I was having a serious sugar craving today. Epic proportions. I actually considered heading to the garage to raid the hidden cauldron of leftover Halloween candy. What? You don’t keep the leftover unwanted chocolate for a sweet tooth attack? Just in case? No? That’s just me? Oh. Well, forget I mentioned it then. Aside from the embarrassment of anyone (ahem…my husband) stumbling upon me ravenously consuming candy amid the boxes of the garage, I have additional motivation to show a little willpower. I’m heading to Hawaii soon to visit my best friend (who moved there 6 months ago and I miss terribly and cannot WAIT to see her!) and so I reigned in the monstrous cravings and set about to find a suitable substitute that I could call dinner.
