Refrigerator Rolls

Overnight stay I love this overnight refrigerator roll recipe when I don’t have any bread or other rolls prepared for Sunday lunch. I mix it up Saturday evening and toss it into the refrigerator (well, I don’t exactly toss it, but you know what I mean). Be sure to use regular flour instead of bread flour, as the recipe calls.

This recipe produces a moist, rich bread.  In addition to rye, wheat and white flour, you will … Read more

I don’t make it as often as I make other bread, so every once in a while Dave has to remind me that this is his favorite, … Read more

Made From Scratch Biscuits

Yankee Bread Maker to Southern Biscuits I was born a Yankee, and where I come from, bread is more of a specialty than biscuits. Then I married a Yankee-became-southern-after-a-move-man, and we raised our kids in southern Virginia – where hand-squished biscuits are often served all three meals of the day. Only problem was, I didn’t know a thing about making this kind of biscuits.  If I can learn, so can you! Where I got this … Read more
