Food cravings.

You notice them most when you move overseas. That’s not to say you won’t develop cravings from traveling abroad, but they’re more pronounced when you relocate for a longer time. When you can’t just pop off to the grocery store, the food court or markets across town, or the restaurant down the street, there are foods you just need to have.

It’s lucky when you’ve got a kitchen big enough to experiment – and half an inclination to do so – as I have. That’s how you end up with a freezer full of empanadas, the perfect recipe for layered nachos, and the ability to create boneless chicken wings at the drop of a hat (actually, after much begging from the kids).

Food cravings are also how you end up with giant cinnamon rolls on the request list from the kids. You know; you make a recipe once… because you need to – and then you have to make it all the time.

I shouldn’t ever be surprised when my kids ask me to make something. I should just be flattered and grateful. Still, when Felix asked me to make cinnamon rolls yesterday and was able to justify the fact that it’s not a lot of effort, but mostly rising time (during which, he said, I could work), I was a little startled. He knew it would be two hours before he could eat the cinnamon rolls and requested them anyhow.

Still, it’s not as easy as my son thinks it is… especially when you start off with a sloppy kitchen that looks like this! (Notice, however, that I did get new kitchen cupboards. No doors yet, but the cupboards are there!)

And, even though they’re on school holidays, it isn’t as though my work disappears too. Really, my son is lucky that I can “clear” my schedule to indulge his food cravings. Though there are times when I wish I’d never introduced half of my food cravings to my children. Life would be easier, though less delicious.

Looking for the cinnamon roll recipe that my children crave? You’ll find it here. (And no, I don’t add the gluten. And yes, the rising time is super important!)
