Easter Nests #WhenWeBake


 Hello, I created this recipe using Country Crock Butter. I was not paid to do this....My opinions are of my own.


 Easter Nest

1/2 C Warm NOT HOT Water
2 1/4 C Yeast
1 T Sugar
1 1/2 C Warm NOT HOT water
1/3 C Country Crock Butter Melted
4 C Flour
6 T Sugar
2 Tsp Salt

Put in your half cup of warm NOT hot water, add your yeast and 1 T of sugar.  Let it dissolve and sit for 5 minutes. It should be foamy. Next add your  1 1/2 C warm water, 1/3 Cup of Country Crock Butter, flour, sugar and salt. Combine till it forms a ball of dough. Take it out and let it rise in a greased bowl till its doubled. Next divide your dough into 4 pieces. Set three aside. Take the piece and divide it into three pieces. Make ropes out of each. Braid it and make a circle. Do it to each of the other three. Put it on a baking sheet to rise for about 15 minutes.  Once it has risen a little bit, put it in a 350 degree oven till they are golden brown. Take them out and let them cool. Brush the outside with honey.  Once they are cool take a circle cookie cutter or a glass jelly jar and take out the middle. Then add your Peep and chocolate eggs if you wish.

Sandwich Rolls


It's no secret I love making bread :-) Everything from watching the yeast proof, to forming the product! I just love it :-) We make homemade sloppy Joes and LOVE homemade rolls with it. This recipe is using my standard bread recipe just shaped into rolls. Top has melted butter on it. These make for a great sandwich!  

Sandwich Rolls
1/2 C Warm NOT HOT Water
2 1/4 Tsp Yeast
1 T Sugar
1 1/2 C Warm NOT HOT water
1/3 C Olive Oil
4ish C Flour
3 T Sugar
2 Tsp Salt

In a bowl add your 1/2 C warm water, yeast and your one T of sugar.  Now let it sit for 5 minutes. The yeast should become bubbly. If it doesn't, then you need to restart.  Add your 1 1/2 C warm not hot water, olive oil, flour, sugar and salt. Mix till it becomes a ball of dough. If its to wet add some flour.  Now get a bowl and spray it or wipe it with oil. Put your dough and turn it to coat. Turn your oven on and put it on the back of your stove covered. Let it rise till its doubled.  Once its doubled, take it and put it on a cutting board and knead it. Next cut it into about 8 pieces or more depending on how big you want the rolls.  When I did it it made 8. Now take the 8 pieces and shape them into rounder balls. Put them on the a parchment paper cookie sheet that you will bake them on. That way you don't have to move them and risk them sinking. Cover and let rise for about 10 minutes. Put it in the oven for about 20 minutes....They will be golden brown at 350. Take them out and set them on a cooling rack. Brush with butter.

Book Review

So today I'm doing something different! I decided I would randomly pick and review different books! So today it doesn't have to do with Cooking but its of a fun book! :-)


The book is called Murder, Mystery and Dating Mayem by D. E. Haggerty! This is a fun read, and will keep you entralled! You will just wanna sit and read this book and not put it down! I give this book a 4 star rating!  It took me a bit to get into it but once I did I loved it.  So make sure you go grab this book! Plus the author is giving away a $20 dollar gift card. Go enter! And make sure you read her book.

D.E. Haggerty
I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but think I’m a European. After spending my senior year of high school in Germany, I developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured. My flying Dutch husband and I have lived in Ohio, Virginia, the Netherlands, Germany and now Istanbul. We still haven’t decided if we want to settle down somewhere – let alone where. Although I’ve been a military policewoman, a commercial lawyer, and a B&B owner, I think with writing I may have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. That’s assuming I ever grow up, of course. Between tennis, running, traveling, singing off tune, drinking entirely too many adult beverages, and reading books like they are going out of style, I write articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, review other indie authors’ books, write a blog about whatever comes to mind and am working on my fifth book.

Browned Butter Garlic Rolls


Good Morning Everyone, today I bring you my browned butter Garlic rolls!  I made these and they were soo good. I baked them in a cast iron skillet :-) 

Dough
1/2 C Warm NOT HOT water
2 1/4 Tsp Yeast
1 T Sugar
1 1/2 C Warm NOT HOT water
1/3 C Olive Oil
4 C Flour
3 T Sugar
2 Tsp Salt

In a bowl add your 1/2 C warm water, yeast and 1 T sugar and whisk. Let it sit for 5 minutes till it foams. Next add 1 1/2 C Warm water, olive oil, flour, sugar and salt. Mix till it forms a ball of dough. Get a bowl and spray it and make sure the dough is oiled. Let it rise for an hour or until doubled. 
Take your pie plate or cast iron skillet and rub it down with oil.  When your dough has doubled take it and knead it for a few minutes. If its a little wet add a lil flour. Next take sections and roll them in a ball. Put them in the pie plate or skillet till filled. If you have extra dough put it in a loaf pan. Cover and let rise till they have risen a bit. 
 Take about 4 T of butter and melt it. Pour it over the top of the rolls, sprinkle with garlic sea salt, and grated parm.  Put it in the oven till golden brown.

Browned Butter Garlic Topping:
1/2 Stick of butter
2 Cloves of garlic minced

In a skillet put in your half stick of butter and garlic. Cook the butter till the fats start turning golden brown. Pour on top of done biscuits and let it sit. Now I sprinkled shredded parm on top but you can leave it off if you want.

Pull it off.  Take a spoon and fill the bottom with the blueberry pie filling. Then take some whip cream and put it in a pipping bag or just spoon it in. Next top with lemon pudding.
