(By the way, the only thing short about me is my height of 5'3. Nothing I do or say is ever short... so just deal with me, will ya?)
2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
This is me using Active Dry Yeast. I finally faced my fears, and opened up these delightful little packages of fungi... and before my eyes, it created one of the most fabulous things in the world.
It should be its own food group. Wait, never mind.
Bread has its own food group.
That's good enough.
After rolling it out... the fun begins. (Not that yeast wasn't already a blast!)
Pouring melted butter.
Its a beautiful thing. A beautiful CALORIE thing.
This is where I start telling my subconscious to shut up.
Heaven??... no no. Better!
Dough, melted butter, and sprinkled sugar and cinnamon.
Keep your tongue in your mouth. Slobbering is rude.
Please meet my messy stove top. And meet my cinnamon roll, ROLL.
This bad boy couldn't wait to be cut into.
He told me so.
Too bad I had to actually take the time to BAKE these before eating.
I mean really, has raw dough ever looked sooooo wonderful?
Those work too.
All done, and ready for another slathering of goodness gracious!
No really. This is bad. Really bad. Because these are sooooo good!
And there are soooo many! and that is such a good thing.
Because these are ooey, and gooey, and sweet, and warm, and comforting.
They are meant to be shared. Or, devoured one by one.
Do what you want. I chose to share them.
But I will totally, totally, totally understand if you would want to eat all of them. Each and every last roll drenched in buttery cinnamini sugary goodness. Every last drop.
Because these are lick the plate good.
Wanna make your taste buds happy?
You will be so glad you did.
My love for Cinnamon rolls have just reached a whole new level of Oh My God.
Mmmm.... Seriously. Are you drooling? Because I am...
I had to taste it. You know, to make sure it wasn't going to be harmful. I wanted to make sure no one would choke if they were to take a delectable bite. Actually... I couldn't stop. I grabbed a fork, and went to town.
And I made all kinds of weird noises. Ohhhs and ahhhhs.. and oh my gawds!!!! I couldn't control myself. And that's OK. Because the Chocolate Sheet Cake Recipe , is to die for. Seriously.
I would lay my life down for this hunk of chocolate goodness.
Wow. Ok, I'm done. Blogging that is. I'm not done talking about this cake. I think Ill take it to my grave, and definitely expecting it when I get to heaven.
What? I hear something. Hmmm.. something is calling my name.
Do you hear it?
Hmmm.... Wait! There it is again! My name! I hear it!
Oh! Its my Chocolate Sheet Cake!
Its calling me from my kitchen, and chanting EAT ME.
I must oblige.
OK, Its time to get down to this blogging business. How the heck am I going to write a cookbook one day, if I cant even promise myself to blog regularly? The insanity. is. beginning. Right. NOW.
