Cinnamon Rolls, my comfort food

Waking up on Sunday morning to the delicious aroma of my mother’s homemade cinnamon rolls.  What a wonderful memory! As a child these were one of my favorite treats.

When I came to Japan in 1984, I don’t remember seeing cinnamon rolls anywhere.  I missed them so much that I tried to make them a few times. Let’s just say I wasn’t successful.Purse-Owner! — Burnt Cinnamon Roll Too Bad For This World, Too...

Last year, out of the blue, there was a cinnamon roll boom in Akita (Japan?).  After reading about the best cinnamon rolls in Akita in Mari Mari, I went on the hunt for the ultimate cinnamon roll.

All of the rolls were delicious in their own way, however my favorite was from a little shop ルーシーカンパニー,in Omagari AEON.  I will continue my search for the ultimate cinnamon roll.

So what is your comfort food?

Comfort food is food that provides a nostalgic or sentimental value to someone, and may be characterized by its high caloric nature, high carbohydrate level, or simple preparation. The nostalgia may be specific to an individual, or it may apply to a specific culture.

I did enjoy a kind of non-calorie (or minus calorie) comfort food last week.  I had my first winter campout and snowshoeing of the season.  Nature is one of my comfort foods!
