Sweet Rolls and Apple Walnut Stuffing

Hope everyone is enjoying time with their family, I know I am!

Well, Thanksgiving is over.  It's been eaten once, eaten twice, and picked over.  As is the tradition in my family, we went and picked up our Christmas Tree on Black Friday and decorated the house for Christmas today.  I don't know why but for some reason that relaxes and makes me enjoy the holidays more than shoving and clawing my way through crowds of people at the mall.  Crazy, I know!

Tippin's Cornbread and Honey Butter has been an insane day of Thanksgiving preparation...a huge thanks to my friend Amanda (you're awesome) and my mother-in-law (saving the day several days in a row and counting) for helping with the preparations in terms of recipe providing, sous-cheffing (yeah I made up some spellings there) and general morale boosting.

I don't know about you, but I love cornbread.  There are an awful lot of crazy variations out there, most notably those containing entire kernels of corn, jalepenos, and cheddar cheese.  This is none of those.  In fact...I'll say it...this cornbread doesn't even need all that other stuff to dress it up.  It stands alone.  Or, rather, it stands alongside its delicious little buddy, honey butter.

Because you kind of HAVE to have the honey butter if you're eating cornbread.

I was so excited about fall finally getting here.  And now all of a sudden I feel like it's almost coming to a close.  

Technically, of course, that's ridiculous because if you look at a calendar, they don't consider winter to actually start until December twenty-something.  Which is insane.  I don't care where you are, by December 20-whatever, it is WINTER.  Heck, I'm already having to stay my hand from turning on Christmas music.

My somewhat convoluted point is this.  I had such a grand plan for my fall baking this year.  I had so many projects I wanted to undertake, so many new foods to try.  Well, you know what they say about our best laid plans...

Hazelnut Nutella Thumbprints

Many times I've found myself, spoon in hand, going in for a second (ok...fourteenth?) spoonful of that chocolatey hazelnutty goodness that is Nutella, and I've thought to myself.  If only there was a way to class-up one of my favorite activities; straight up shoveling shocking quantities of Nutella into my face.

Well happy news, problem solved.
