Soft and Buttery Dinner Rolls

Soft and Buttery Dinner Rolls

  Butter lovers unite! These soft & buttery dinner rolls are an answer to prayer. The dough is supple, tender, and melt in your mouth, with an unparalleled butter flavor. Probably because they are nearly drenched in butter.   Some thing you should know about these rolls? They are just about as forgiving as a child. My first encounter making these produced a spectacular batch of rolls that were completely consumed in one meal. My second encounter with these rolls were on Thanksgiving Read more [...]

Cranberry Marshmallow Salad

Cranberry Marshmallow Salad

Oh yeah, and some extra sugar, because there isn't enough "naturally occurring." This was my most favorite side dish at Thanksgiving when I was a kid. I probably aet half the bowl by myself. Then I grew up and realized my true favorite dish is sweet potatoes.   Nevertheless, this salad is amazing. Really, it should be a dessert. But it's Thanksgiving, so side dishes Read more [...]
