My Favorite Things

I am a sucker for many things–beautiful women, ice cream, dogs, lake swimming, chocolate, rhythm, and baked goods with cinnamon come to mind without breaking a sweat.  “Baked goods with cinnamon” is a proxy for “baked goods with cinnamon and sugar,” because cinnamon by itself would not make me walk across a room.  Mix cinnamon with sugar in yeast dough and I’ll follow you anywhere.  This morning I decided to do something with a carton of buttermilk with an April 17 sell-by date that was still good.  A recipe for easy cinnamon buns was the answer.  An hour later they were baked, glazed, cooled, and ready to eat.
