LAST week in November!!!
You know, as well as I do that it’s all a blur from this point forward…my hope is to slow it down just a bit and truly enjoy the special moments of the holiday season.
I wish the same for you.
My favorites from the week…
Favorite cinnamon stuff…

~~Recipe and photo…Oh My! Sugar High
Cinnamon Roll Middles (the best part, right!!)
~~Recipe and photo…Oh, Bite It!
Favorite positive post…9 Things Happy, Successful People Choose to Ignore (~~Marc and Angel Hack Life). Things I need to work on…ignoring each day’s little frustrations (even though I am getting better at this!), the necessary pain and hard work of growth (why do I always think it should come easy??), insignificant busywork (so easy to fall into), impatient thoughts (I always want it now!), the mind’s endless stream of doubts (no explanation necessary).
Favorite combo…Praline Brownies (chocolate and brown sugar…umm, YES!)
~~Recipe and photo…Cookies and Cups
Favorite yeasty recipe….I love my pizza dough, but this looks really good…Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe. A little more work with more rising time but it looks so poofy :)
~~Recipe and photo…Sally’s Baking Addiction
Favorite “coming out” post…Coming Out as a Modern Family (~~The New York Times). Love Maria Bello and love her son’s response when she said she was romantically involved with another woman… “Mom, love is love, whatever you are.”
Favorite indulgence…Brown Butter Pecan Gooey Butter Cake with Spiked Whipped Cream
