For those of you that asked about the cinnamon roll recipe my husband used to make the delicious treat seen in yesterday's post, well it seems it's not such a secret. He uses Paula Deen's cinnamon roll recipe, found here.
The only changes he makes is that he doubles the recipe to make enormous rolls, which yields giant inside pieces (my favorite part). He also uses brown sugar instead of white and adds cloves to the cinnamon. It makes the rolls kind of caramel-y. When eating, he is adamant that you slather a glob of butter on top of it.
He also lets them rise in a bowl on top of the firewood, next to the fire, but that step is completely optional. So is pretending they're snails. ;)
