Love for the Flavors (Cinnamon)
During the holidays, I’m finding the aroma of cinnamon everywhere from my coffee cup to my kitchen. Like most people, its aroma makes me very happy. It reminds me of the holidays and brings on a joyful emotion. Cinnamon can add a subtle spice, or it can bring some real heat that you feel in your mouth. I find Cinnamon is fun to play with in the kitchen, as it can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. And cinnamon can add character whether you use a lot of it or just a hint: I double the amount of cinnamon when I make pumpkin pie to give it extra spiciness, and I just add a dash when I’m cooking up some stir-fry to add flavor depth.
