We FINALLY got some seasonally appropriate weather here in Houston, which gave us the perfect excuse to go and make these truly gargantuan Monster Cinnamon Rolls.  Not that you really need an excuse other than you just want some delicious breakfast or brunch food, but when you’re making something a excessive as these, it helps to have a little more justification.

In case you can’t tell from the title or the pictures, these rolls are huge!  You can easily share one between two people, and I honestly don’t think I have ever polished off one by myself.  Sure, we could have made them a little smaller, but where’s the fun in that?  Besides, how awesome is it to sit down at the table and gaze at the cold outdoors as the smell of cinnamon and fresh coffee waft by?  Monster Cinnamon Rolls are are perfect for a nice lazy weekend morning.  Or, according to Liz, a 2 am snack.

Winter makes me crave cozy flavors.  I mean, a good hot chocolate is always at the top of my list.  But if you need something savory, it’s hard to beat a Caramelized Onion and Bacon Tart.

I know the holidays are usually reserves for cookies and pie, but I couldn’t resist adding something else to the dessert table this year…Baked Apple Cider Donuts!

I think apple cider donuts are an east coast thing.  When we lived in New Jersey, we saw them at every roadside stand once cooler weather hit.  Now that we’re in Texas, well, there’s no cool weather, and there’s also no apple cider donuts.  Sad face. Especially because apple cider donuts are about a billion times better than regular donuts.  Possibly a trillion.  Or maybe they just tasted that way because they were freshly baked on some farm and layered with a cinnamon sugar coating that was so addictive I didn’t even care that it got all over my face, hands, and clothes.

Either way, Ross and I have been on the lookout for apple cider donuts ever since moving to Texas.  And since it’s now been three years with nary a donut sighting, it was time to take matters into our own greedy little hands.  And I’m SO glad we did.
