Gluten-free Cinnamon Rolls

When I had that hard, emotional day, the other day, hormones or something. I was eating all the carob chips straight out of the bag. Mixed with cacao nibs. At 7 in the evening. Under the covers. It was that kind of a day. I put the bag with about 1/8 cup left in the fridge, looked up and saw the, “You are loved,” sign, signed by my family. And everything dropped off. Like water. All angst gone. You are loved.

  1. On my recent trip to your area down there, I learned the word ‘algarrobina’ = carob. And what you’re getting there is probably native to the Piura province of Per├║, just south of you. Yummy stuff. ­čÖé
