Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Biscuits

My first ever real job, besides babysitting, was working at Hardee’s when I was 16. I remember my dad hauling me down to the building they were doing interviews in. (The restaurant wasn’t even open yet.) I was not very thrilled with him. But they interviewed me, hired me that afternoon, and started training me […]

Homemade Hamburger Buns

Summertime is here, and at our house that means lots of BBQ’s. I love it, because my husband does the grilling, so I get a break from cooking. I love cooking and everything, but it’s still nice when someone else does the work. One night we wanted hamburgers, but like a doofus I forgot to […]

Golden White Bread Braid

We have been enjoying unseasonably warm weather. It has been heavenly! Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and the winds are blowing in a storm. I really do not enjoy cold weather. The only thing I like about it is the baking. We eat a lot of breads during the winter months. […]

No Knead Artisan Bread

This recipe has popped up all over the bloggy world. Everyone raved about it so I couldn’t wait to try it. The problem was that you must start it a day ahead, and I kept forgetting. Seriously, it took me over a month before I finally got my act together and started the night before. […]

If you live in Utah, chances are that you have eaten at the Pizza Factory. I’m not a huge fan of their pizza, but their breadsticks are TO DIE FOR! They wrap them around a dowel stick before they bake them so they are really fun to eat. They also have an amazing flavor. Every […]

Yummy White Roll Recipe

This has been my favorite basic white roll recipe for a few years now. The evaporated milk and potato flakes give them a little something extra and people are always asking for the recipe. I usually just form them into balls and make regular dinner rolls, but this time I made them into crescents, just […]

Focaccia Cheese Bread-Yummy!!!

My kids call this cheesy focaccia bread “that yummy bread”, and for good reason. It is daaang good! It is also super fast and easy, so it is pretty much one of my very favorite side dishes. I try to serve it every time we have Italian food. I don’t like to admit this, but […]

Soft Wheat Bread

I have tried many, many wheat bread recipes over the years and this is my very favorite. It is fast, easy, and virtually fool proof. It only requires one raising time, so you can have warm bread in your mouth in less than 90 minutes. I try to time it so the bread is coming […]
