Just Because Sticky Buns

Since joining Tuesdays with Dorie a few months ago, I've made lots of different things I never would have tried without this awesome group. My husband's hands down favorite recipe is the sticky buns. I made three batches (two of Brioche, my poor KitchenAid!) last weekend for a family party and had to do something with left over brioche dough... so I went ahead and made some more sticky buns just for my husband. They came together quickly and I had fun realizing how much I've learned in the past little while, thanks to Dorie, awesome friends from TWD, and lots of trial and error in the kitchen.

One of the things I've learned is that making dessert is much interesting than making dinner. Well, I knew that before, but it's really hit home as I sit at my desk and think about what to make for dinner, and all I find is more pictures of baked goods on my memory card and nothing for dinner tickling my memory. So I'm going to pretend that making dinner is more like baking and head to the kitchen, while I envy my husband and his ability to eat three sticky buns and a full dinner in his skinny jeans. So... whats for dinner at your house? Any fabulous ideas?
