Make Ahead Parkerhouse Rolls

_DSC0609

One of the requirements for any holiday dinner at our house is homemade rolls.  Hot, fresh, yeasty, right out of the oven parkerhouse rolls. The only problem with homemade rolls on a holiday is how much time they take.  Making the dough, let it rise, form the roll, let it rise, bake.  It takes some time and if all you were making is homemade rolls that wouldn’t be so bad but you are making an entire, huge holiday dinner also!! Today’s recipe will hopefully make that holiday meal prep a little [Continue Reading…]

Homemade Hamburger Bun Recipe

hamburger buns

Summer BBQ time is here.  I love walking around the neighborhood on a summer evening and smelling all the wonderful smells coming form my neighbor’s backyards as they fire up their grills!  One of our good old summer stand by dinners is hamburgers on the grill.  I keep hamburger patties frozen in the freezer and we can just grab how ever many we need for however many people are there for dinner. Sometimes though the problem is I don’t have any buns.  I use to always run to the store [Continue Reading…]

Slider Bun Recipe

Slider-Buns

I love slider buns – mainly because they are little.  I love little food.  I first used them this summer for our Wedding Carnival.  I bought them from a local bakery but decided they would be so easy to make at home.  I was right!  So today I have a slider bun recipe for you. It is pretty much like making any yeast bread or roll.  The slider rolls are just a little more dense so that they hold the pulled pork and don’t fall apart on you. But you [Continue Reading…]

Cheese & Garlic Rolls

Herb & Cheese Rolls

So I may have mentioned a time or two here on the blog how much I like fresh baked bread in any form.  Maybe. Well today I am going to mention it again.  I love fresh baked bread, especially fresh baked Cheese & Garlic Rolls. Sundays seem to be my day of choice for bread baking.  After we go to church we stay home for the rest of the day.  I love Sundays.  It truly is a day of rest from the busyness and cares of the rest of the [Continue Reading…]

Pretzel Rolls

Pretzel Rolls

I am a big fan of bread.  I also love a big soft pretzel like they sell in the mall. So I decided, why not combine the two into a pretzel rolls recipe.  There is a restaurant in Portland that has amazing soft pretzels that come with a yummy cheese dip.  I thought that I would just add the cheese into the pretzel rolls and see what happened.   Three of my favorite things – bread, pretzels and cheese all in one. Although these rolls are more bread than pretzel the [Continue Reading…]

Butter Rolls

Butter Rolls

  So how are your Easter menu plans shaping up?  We’ve been invited to some friends for dinner and when we were discussing the menu I told her I would bring the rolls.  She said we didn’t really need rolls.  I tried not to gasp into the phone.  Not need rolls?  Having Easter dinner without rolls at our house is almost against our religion. Traditionally, my mom is the roll maker at our house and in fact, if you asked her friends what one recipe my mom is most known [Continue Reading…]

Crescent Rolls

rolls

I was beginning to think that this post was just not meant to be. Last Sunday I made up a batch of rolls.  They turned out perfect.  They tasted wonderful and they looked beautiful.  They raised  perfectly and were golden brown.  The photos were lovely. Then I got a little over zealous with my camera.  I not only deleted the photos, I totally erased my memory card before I downloaded the pictures.  I was so sad. But it was a great excuse to make another batch of rolls.  They tasted [Continue Reading…]
