Honey Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls with a Touch of Rosemary

Sunday morning thoughts: I feel like my blog has no rhyme or reason. Right now, it’s not very organized.

One of my favorite parts of their brunch is their DESSERT TABLE, which is an arrangement of traditional Mexican fresh based breads, cookies, candies, and pastries. I nearly peed my pants when I saw all the freshly baked goods, and amongst all the goodies, there was a plate of dime-sized alfajores. I don’t remember much, but I must’ve eaten at least 10. They were melt-in-your-mouth kind of PERFECTION. While I’ve had alfajores before, none compared to those at Caracol. Since then, I’ve been craving them every. single. day. …
