Sweet Honey Buns

I kept intending to blog last week. But, never got too far. It was a busy week.

A new little niece was born - Emma Grace! She is a sweet little honey.


And, it was our (uh - mine & Scott's) anniversary - the end of our 4th year of marriage. So, we did some celebrating. The tradition for the 4th year is giving fruits or flowers or books.

That made it really easy for us, since we are really into those things. Scott got me books on floral design. I gave him a custom paper cutting of his beloved Medlar fruit. I found this artist - Joe, by putting up a request on Etsy Alchemy. I love how easy Etsy makes it to connect with artists who will work with you & do custom work for a reasonable price.

Scott was out of town for work, until the evening of our anniversary. While he was gone, I made up some of these Honey Buns, for a sweet breakfast when he got home. What a marvelous recipe!

These were SO yummy. When I make them next time, I will do a few things differently, though. I think I will try buttering the pan. The sticky mixture baked on to the pan & made it really hard to get the rolls out. I will also bake them for less time. The recipe says about 1 hour. I took mine out at 50 minutes, and they were over cooked... But still delicious!
We took our anniversary date to the Shadowbrook. We had our first date here & hadn't been back since. We had a lovely time. We had Gin & Tonics & Artichoke Soup for starters - just like we did back then. Their artichoke soup is really good...
