That's how we {Roll}


Did you notice anything different about this recipe book?
Sadly, it's proof that the electric stove and I had a poor relationship.
Tip:  Plastic melts on a hot stove-top.

I'm joining Linda for the last week of Fall Into Flavor.
So.... I thought I'd share one of my absolute favorite
thunder thigh recipes that can compliment any recipe!

Don't let the above picture spook you.
I really can cook when I follow a recipe set my mind to it.

Of course, I can only eat these once a year.
{Mostly due to my inability to stop at just one.}
Otherwise... Well, Bob and Jillian would make me workout
until I was a human slushy.

This bread recipe {a staple at many meals for years} was one that my mother-in-law first shared with me.
She baked this bread for us to take during communion at our wedding.

Electric bread-maker sham-maker!
It's soooo easy to make and the yummiest bread EVER.

Easy Delicious Rolls

1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. sugar
1/4. c. non-fat dry milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1 c. lukewarm water with 1 pkg. yeast
About 4 c. flour

 There's no need to knead!  ;)
Simply mix oil, sugar, dry milk, eggs, and salt together.  Add water mixed with yeast.  Add about 4 cups flour {when it is the right consistency}.   Let it stand overnight.  Roll out on floured board till about 1/4 in. thick.  Cut {like a pizza} and roll up like crescent rolls.  Let rise 4 hours.  Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. 

If you try them,
let me know whatcha think.

Christmas music is being played {non-stop} in our house these days.
Do you know why?

We are putting up the decorations.
More on that soon...


  1. I love baking bread - I am going out right now and start these rolls - they sound scrumptious!

  2. Those rolls sound so yummy and really easy to make too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Christmas decorations? What is up with everyone this friend has already decorated her tree and her house for christmas and I've heard of others doing the same thing. I guess I'm behind the times. :)

  3. You are in good company in your mishap with the stove....only mine was my lid to my tupperware container......oh and my grocery bag from the store...aaannd my plastic measuring spoon...I better stop there.

  4. eager to try these...thx 4 sharing

  5. thunder thighs! ha! that's so funny! today i'm back on my....on again diet! lol and you tempt me with your yummy rolls! haha!

    i have the shred
    human slushy...perfect description!

  6. This made me laugh so much -- I have a cookbook that suffered a similar fate :)

    Those rolls look delish! If I ever conquer my fear of cooking things with yeast, maybe I will try them :)

  7. Would love to have you back for our 3rd photo challenge!

  8. Oh my WORD these sound wonderful! I'm a roll-lover extraordinaire...these will be tried as quickly as I can manage. Thanks!

  9. Love the happy dance. Nothing better than homemade fresh rolls!

  10. OK I just took them from the oven. I tried a small batch without waiting the 5 hours...ok but nothing great. Put the rest in on time and WOW these are fabulous. Definitely going in my often used list! Thanks

  11. yummy!

    i love your cook book picture! i have melted many a plastic thing...the smell is unforgettable!

  12. Well, they look wonderful. I try so hard not to eat too much bread and especially the homemade variety because let's face it...I could eat the whole pan. However, Thanksgiving is around the corner and I'll have a houseful so plenty of people to share with. Or not. : )

  13. I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one! {or maybe I shouldn't be so glad?} ;)

    KD, that was really fast. Most of the work is in letting it sit. ;) This recipe is a perfect compliment to Thanksgiving and Christmas! So simply easy, but so yummm. Glad you enjoyed them. ;)

  14. Although I've vowed not to turn my oven on for the next three months I may have to have my husband carry the toaster oven out to the patio so I can try these :-) I love things that are easy! I love bread! Thanks for sharing!!!

  15. Beautiful post. Don't know if you realize it or not, but it's full of joy.

  16. Alright. Total yum-o there, lady :)
    Gonna have to give them a try.

    Oh yeah, and a well worn recipe book only means that it contains some great recipes :)

  17. Sounds tasty! :) I should try these...and I have a friend that I might pass this on to as well! :)

    Also - I totally thought, by your post title, that we may have possibly done the *same* recipe! I did Egg ROLLS! Ha!


I always enjoy reading what you have to say... It makes my day! ;)
