“In Food Swings, I offer my personal approach: recipes that speak to different sides of my personality. One half of the book has recipes for everyday eating, the other half is for when you need to feel the wind in your hair,” Jessica Seinfeld.

I like to eat healthy but also love a good splurge and Food Swings has recipes for both. The cookbook is divided into two sections: vice and virtue. You can easily find a recipe that fits what you want in that moment.

When I saw this recipe in the “virtue” section of Food Swings I immediately wanted to try it. The recipe was really easy to follow and quick to put together. Once you have all the ingredients in the baking dish you just pop it in the oven for an hour. 

It is so tasty and filling. I served two premade meatballs with it for each serving and our meal was complete. The Whole Roasted Cauliflower will now be a regular on our meal rotation. You could serve it on it’s own or with any protein of your choice. I do want to mention that I did get seconds because it was so good!

Cinnamon buns are a great brunch dish and something that I normally make from a Jiffy mix. I decided to try these cinnamon buns from scratch. They were not difficult to make – they just take about 3 hours and 45 minutes from start to finish. 

The dough was easy to work with and rolled out nicely. I did have some of the cinnamon mixture leak out as I was cutting the rolls, but that just made the rolls extra gooey. 

The hardest part of making these was letting them cool for 10 minutes before glazing as all I wanted to do was dig right in since they smelled so good. They were worth the wait and made a great breakfast.
