Cinnamon is one of those spices that makes anything better. It adds a little more oomph to dessert and a richness to savory dishes. We love cinnamon at Love With Food, especially during the colder months, so we rounded up 13 of the very best cinnamon recipes we could find (including one of our own creations) to keep us all warm and toasty. If you thought you were done with holiday cooking, think again.

No judging if you lick your fingers.
3. Cinnamon Braised Short Ribs
