I’ve been basically absent from my blog for the last few months. No particular reason, I just truly lost my mojo. I don’t have the time I used to have to bake-and truly don’t have the energy, most days. But, I’m not myself if I can’t make something in the kitchen. So, I’ve made a new pledge to myself, and to you wonderful people, that I can at least post once a week, on Sundays. No posting on Tuesdays, you ask? Sorry, but no. Sadly, I am no longer a member of Tuesdays with Dorie. I just couldn’t keep up.
I’ve been reading. But I think the 52 in 52 ship has sailed, as I am wayyyyyy behind. I’ve read this one by Jane Green-a touching novel about a different kind of family:
And this one by Shelley Noble, about a fashion designer who loses it all, returns to her small hometown on the Connecticut coast because she has nowhere else to go:
And I have baked….a few things.
A few months ago, while starting out on Pinterest, I saw the recipe for these rolls. I was a little skeptical, hom Homemade rolls in 30 minutes? Hmmm.
But, it was a Sunday, and if it took longer than 30 minutes, I had the time to work with that.
I made these to go alongside a roast with potatoes and carrots. They were absolutely delicious.
I followed the recipe exactly according to the directions, and it only took about 10 minutes longer. Which was just fine-who could argue with 10 extra minutes for a yeast roll?
They rose beautifully, they baked beautifully. And they were absolutely delicious. I think I’ve already said that. Also, once cooled, put them in a Ziploc bag, put them in the freezer. They freeze nicely, too. Just take a few out while prepping a meal, wrap them in foil, and place them in a 350 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes. They will taste freshly made!
