The art of the copycat recipe is a fickle thing. The much-loved foods that we enjoy in various restaurant settings are almost never truly conducive to at home production. Probably because we would all die of fright if we ever seriously saw just how much butter, cream, and salt goes into, for instance, your favorite […]

At some point last year I had the “brilliant” idea that I was going to make cinnamon rolls with puff pastry dough. In my mind it seemed like the easiest possible thing so I didn’t bother to look up a recipe. I just unrolled the chilled dough and spread out a thick layer of butter, […]
