Christmas Eve Brunch

I wanted to really do something good for brunch today. I've been wanting to get really good at making homemade cinnamon rolls. I don't know why. I just think that's a really good thing to be able to make. So, I saw an episode of Good Eats on the Food Network back in November. Alton was making cinnamon rolls. I think I was drooling by the end of the show. I decided that those would be the ones I would make. So, the above picture is actually of the rolls that I made. (Don't they look too good to have been made my some amateur like myself?)

I wanted something savory to go along with the cinnamon rolls, and Sleek and I just love the chickpea gravy from VWaV. I decided to make that with some good, homemade biscuits. I found a recipe by Emeril for biscuits, and figured he knows a thing or two about a good biscuit. Wow. The gravy was great, as usual, and the biscuits were off-the-hook. That's the only kind I'm making from now on. So, we had a really nice Christmas Eve brunch this morning, which I plan on making a tradition.

That's all for tonight. Tomorrow we'll be heading to my mom's house for a big Christmas feast. I'll definitely be posting about it within the next few days. And with that...

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

After this month, DM, I don't believe you can be considered an amateur anymore. I'm married to a pro.
