One time I made brownies for my family, and not wanting to make "normal" brownies, I added a little something special. Noooo, not thaaaaat. Man what kind of person do you think I am? ;)
I added a bit of cinnamon to the chocolatey batter, and when they came out they had just a hint of flavor from the spice. So I tried adding it to other things to see if it would taste good in them as well. Of course, my mom (who is a traditionalist when it comes to following recipes exactly) wasn't a fan. Even today she teases me about adding cinnamon to "everything" I bake. This Fantastic Finds Friday is dedicated to that story, with the theme being "sweets including cinnamon".

This is seriously one of my favorite spices. It's so versatile. Have you ever used cinnamon in a non-conventional recipe?
