Passing the Torch

I want to start off this post by saying I am not a cook. I've never taken an interest in it nor am I any good. What is so odd is that my grandmother is an awesome cook as is my mother. How did this skip me?? Poor Ryan. Well, even though I may not be able to cook, I can officially make cinnamon rolls :)

Let me explain, my Grandmother has made cinnamon rolls for years, every family get together and for every holiday. These are not just any cinnamon rolls, they are fabulous homemade cinnamon rolls that melt in your mouth. My grandmother is really the only one that has ever learned or actually made them. My aunt has since started making them but somehow my mother never learned. Now someone has to take this tradition over, right? Well I expressed an interest in learning and as of yesterday, my Grandmother has resigned and handed over the torch of baking cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. Here's a few shots of all our day baking session:




Did I mention we made 10 dozen batches!?! It was an exhausting day but I will admit, spending all day in the kitchen with your mother and grandmother while baking rolls and listening to Christmas music is a great way to get you in the spirit!
Merry Christmas!!
