There seems to be a debate on whether or not you call these delicious baked goods rolls, or buns. I guess it depends what your parents called them growing up, or where you live. They could be sweet buns, sticky rolls, sticky buns, cinnamon rolls or cinnamon buns. Either way, they’re delicious.
For the purpose of this post, I’m going to call them buns.
Because, when you say you’ve got a ‘roll in the oven’ – it doesn’t quite have the same meaning.
Yup – We’ve got a ‘bun in the oven’ – and not just the cinnamon type ?
Adam and I are so insanely excited to announce we have a new little baker arriving this august.
It was so hard keeping it a secret for three months. And today, I’m actually four months pregnant. It’s crazy how everything changes once you find out you’re going to be parents. The first few months went by slowly, keeping a secret during the holidays, being exhausted, sleepless nights (hello insomnia) and some definite cravings (toasted tuna sandwiches at 4 am….)
However, the second trimester has brought energy and sleep (thank god for snoogles).
This is also a reason why it’s been a little quieter on the blog front. Not a whole lot of baking has gone down, and even less energy to blog and upload posts. I’ve actually been really lucky (fingers crossed) that I’ve felt pretty good so far. No real morning sickness (thankfully) and no other crazy pregnancy symptoms. I actually didn’t think I was pregnant when we found out – though we were planning on it. I’m hoping this stays the same for the rest of the pregnancy!
I’ll share some pregnancy updates and stories on the blog as we go. And there will be lots of cinnamon buns in the future.
For now, old man winter has decided to stick around forever. It’s currently snowing outside – again. Just when you think it’s over, and spring is around the corner, it snows. Personally I’ve had enough of it. I’m ready for sunny days – heck, even rainy ones. Anything but snow. Enough with the snow.
Snow just means more days cozying up inside baking. These cinnamon buns are a labour of love (pun intended).
If you’ve never made cinnamon buns before, don’t be intimidated by the lengthy process. It’s actually quite easy and the end result, a warm sticky cinnamon scented treat, is well worth the effort. Kind of like babies.
Make these on the weekend to enjoy all week long.
And pray that winter is over. Soon.
