Few things make us feel warm, soft, and fuzzy inside the same way cinnamon does. This dried aromatic bark of the cinnamon tree, either rolled into strips or ground into a powder, is our favorite spice to jazz up both our meals and mood when the summer changes into fall.

We associate it with so many positive delicious treats - cinnamon spiced lattes, endless combinations with it in pies, cinnamon rolls, cinnamon sugar cookies… But somehow it still doesn’t get its due when it comes to savory dishes. Did you know how amazingly well cinnamon tastes in stews, soups, and chillis? Plus all the health benefits it adds to our meals.

We have some delicious ideas for you! So look through these diverse cinnamon-inspired recipes and get to cooking!
