Oh, cinnamon rolls, banana bread. How have I not joined you before?
Let me set right this injustice, join your little hands, if you will, so you can forevermore be united in holy sweet baked good matrimony.

My family is more of the pumpkin pie kin. Sweet potatoes are left for marshmallow-topped casseroles. No shame there.
