This blog started as a place to chat from a Christian perspective about a variety of topics. Today it is mainly a natural health blog, but I will share other topics worth mentioning. The older I get, the more I want to simplify, and I have a passion for sharing the thoughtfulness of our creator.

God created oils from plants that have potent medicinal properties. Many of us ignore these natural gifts and reach for man-made remedies. I'm on a mission to honor the physical, emotional and spiritual healing that's possible through the power of nature.

Well, I discovered another great blog for recipes, Mennonite Girls Can Cook.  Tonight I tried one of the recipes for cinnamon buns listed on the site.  They sure looked good when they came out of the oven.  Best looking buns I ever made.  If I make them again, I will double the sticky glaze that you set the rolls in.  They weren't quite sticky enough for me.  But everything else about them is divine.

It would probably be a good idea to place your pan of buns on a cookie sheet in case some of that wonderful goo bubbles over the top.  I did have to add some extra flour to the dough before I could handle it, but the dough is supposed to be somewhat sticky, so don't add too much.  I baked these for no more than 20 minutes, but set my timer for 18 minutes.  Also don't melt the butter, milk, and sugar on high.  If the milk gets too hot it might negatively affect the yeast.
Spend some time exploring the Mennonite Girls blog.  The cinnamon rolls are in the yeast breads category and you have several recipes to choose from.  I chose the recipe by Charlotte because my mom's name is Charlotte and I took that as a good sign.  I was very happy with the results.  My only complaint was not enough sticky for my taste.  But that can be easily adjusted.  Just double the sticky glaze.  Nothing smells up the kitchen like a fresh batch of cinnamon buns.  And these are the biggest, softest, most buttery I ever made.
