Kitchen Adventures (1): Apple Cinnamon Rolls

I'm not much of a baker (or a chef, for that matter), and I've decided I want to change that. Every week I'm going to attempt to bake one of the many recipes I've saved on Pinterest and Tumblr, and I will chronicle my results here to keep me accountable. My first recipe is Flourishing Foodie's Apple Cinnamon Rolls, and they turned out to be delicious!

I took a bunch of pictures throughout the baking process, but only a few were not blurry, so here they are:
About to cut in the butter for the cinnamon sugar mixture.
The rolls right after they came out of the oven.
And the rolls right after I frosted them.
While I felt there was a little too much lemon juice in the frosting, the actual roll was most excellent. (Full disclosure: I did spill a bit when measuring out the juice, so that could account for the too-strong flavor.) I think the apples made this classic treat just that much better. I definitely recommend giving the recipe a try.

Glamour shots:

Drool-worthy, right? I may or may not have had two before I realized I should probably eat a "real" dinner.


Bonus: Yesterday I made these super easy garlic knots from Damn Delicious. They went perfectly with the spaghetti and meatballs I had for dinner, and I can't wait to make them again!


Not sure what I'm going to make next week, but I'm thinking it will be some kind of cookie. Must ponder.
