  1. I was so distracted by your Pyrex I almost forgot to read the recipe! Anything with buttermilk is good and my husband LOVES cinnamon. Will definitely be trying this recipe. BTW I have a small collection of Pyrex COFFEE mugs that will go with this just fine! ;)

  3. Oh boy, today’s a good day for Cinnamon Swirl Buttermilk bread!! It looks delicious, and I put buttermilk in all my recipes that call for milk because I think it makes it more moist.
    We are having a little snow/sleet here in Houston which is extremely unusual, and I love to bake on cold days!!
    Thank you!
