My Cinnamon Buns taste great…

“The Bigger the Buns – the better they are?”

Hi, my name is Maureen and I live in the great state of Michigan. My husband

is Lloyd, and this is his blog.  Thank you for taking the time to check it out.

One of my favorite shows on The Food Network™ is Chefs Vs City.  On a recent

episode talented chefs Aaron Sanchez and Chris Cosentino traveled to Dallas,

Texas to go up against fellow Food Network Stars Aaron McCargo, Jr. ( Big Daddy)

and Adam Gertler, a former contestant on The Next Food Network Star.  On

this episode one of the challenges was to re-create a famously huge cinnamon roll.

In our small town, I am known for my famous cinnamon rolls.  For years I have

made them, from scratch, for every school event our children have been involved

in such as pre-game meals for football and basketball, banquets, orchestra concerts,

etc…  The kids have told me that they would wear tee shirts that say “Mommas Buns

Are The Best” if I would give them free cinnamon rolls for life.  Today, I decided to

make the huge cinnamon roll for a few of the boys coming over after Track practice.


Let’s just say it was a success.  The big bun was out of the oven, frosted, and gone

within two hours, which is no easy task since it was the size of an extra large pizza.

However, experience has taught me that if you put food in front of growing boys;  it will

soon disappear – and it did!  -Maureen Wells
