1- Cutesy baked goods always win. ALWAYS!!
2- Giveaways will make you instantly popular.
3- Having a baby(ies)/pictures of your baby(ies) = spikes in traffic.
What I’ve really learned:
1- While blogging symposiums are fun, their lists of “Dos” and “Do Nots” are not, and should not, be used as a formula for success, no matter how pretty their power point presentations are. Success cannot be guaranteed, no matter how much SEO you’ve got goin’ on.
2- You need to be able to talk to ANYONE and EVERYONE at the same time. This one has been really hard for me: I’m no good at …what’s that word? Oh, “networking.” I’m an awkward conversationalist…Aaand I like fragmented sentences. Except that one. But there’s one. And another!
3- Vanilla may work for some, but I’m more of a spiced-cake girl. I’ve tried being sunshine-and-daisies but that’s not me, and that will never be me. For those who like a little something more to a food blog, sprinkles(or downpours) of snark and sass, I’m your gal.
It’s gotten really difficult during school, or weeks when we’re really, really broke. Sometimes though, that’s where the real fun begins; it’s kind of like the show “Chopped” on Food Network. I’ve got gummy bears, sliced bread, and chicken thighs: GO!
Also, I love sharing pictures and recipes with everyone, and I love being inspired by others pictures and recipes; whether it’s learning a new technique (for either,) or a new type of cuisine, I’ll always feel this way about food and friends.
This past year has been a blast, and there will definitely be many, many years to look forward to in the future. I’m thankful for every single person who stops by to read my ramblings, tries my recipes, or just takes a quick peek.
So onto this post. The BF was telling me about a loaf of bread he once had with chunks of salami in it. Which lead to the question: What other kinds of things can have chunks of meat in it?
Slathering the inside with garlic butter, marinara sauce, and pepperoni, rolling it up, baking it, and melting tons of cheese on top.
The hardest part about this whole thing: naming it.
Cant really call them “Savory Cinnamon Rolls” because that still implies that there might be some cinnamon in it.
Cant really call them “Pizza Rolls” because those already exist and people would get confused.
Pizza Buns? Works for me!
This recipe was adapted from Alton Brown’s “Overnight Cinnamon Rolls”…I threw away the “overnight” part. 😉
I really love the feedback I’ve been getting from everyone, the good and the bad. Please continue to drop in and say hi, and feel at home by commenting and saying what ever comes to your mind.
Here’s to another year! I love you guys. If it weren’t for you, I’d just be talking to myself. <3
