I’m on the hunt for a new dinner roll recipe because my old favorite has failed me the last three times I’ve made them. I don’t know what happened to this recipe because it used to be my go-to, no-fail, works-every-time, you-cannot-mess-this-up recipe that I cut out of Southern Living Magazine years and years ago. I had tried at least half a dozen dinner roll recipes in search of the best one, and that was it. But not anymore!
So I’m making a half-recipe of THESE rolls this evening as a test. They sure were less trouble and lots less time-consuming, so I’m hoping they turn out really well. I haven't had a chance to look through that website yet, but it's something I really want to do. Maybe there are better recipes in there. I think I saw another roll recipe too.
What’s the deal with all the hyphens in this entry? I do not know. Stop obsessing over the hyphens. Nobody notices but you. Okay, fine then.
Later that same night:
Well, here's a picture of the rolls when they came out of the oven...
As you can see, they didn't rise either, DAMMIT, and they tasted more like a biscuit than a dinner roll. My original roll recipe is better, even when it doesn't rise properly. So the hunt is still on!
If anyone has a beloved recipe for homemade dinner rolls that I can try, please send it in the comments or email me if you have my address.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch today:
My sister gave me these flowers and cool vase on Easter. The lillies were closed, but when I got up this morning, two of them had opened up completely. Isn't the vase cool? She got it at an art show in Florida.
A Closer Look
I have so many crochet things I want to do RIGHT NOW. Oh, by the way, Barnaby found the purple pineapple afghan stuck in a random drawer. I can't decide what I need to do first so I'm just doing nothing. I'm paralyzed. I have crochet paralysis.
I think I'll just finish those hexagons for the potholder/pincushion. That's simple enough to keep me from feeling overwhelmed and may get me out of my paralysis.
