Variations on a ROLL theme

uncooked cinnamon rolls

Hi all!  You know, when I make rolls…see recipe in previous post (you’ll want to…because it’s a GREAT recipe!), I typically make rolls and bread sticks, or rolls and cinnamon rolls, or rolls and monkey bread etc.   Over the weekend I made this batch.  I added raisins to my cinnamon rolls, and when my sister came over, she was THRILLED!  She mentioned that she loves raisins and hardly anyone puts raisins in cinnamon rolls anymore!  On the other hand, one of my sons wouldn’t touch them because of the raisins.  YOU JUST CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE ALL OF THE TIME!!! Right?

What is your preference? (I’m taking a non-scientific poll)  Raisins -OR- No Raisins?

Also, I wanted to let you know of a variation for bread sticks.  I usually sprinkle this on my bread sticks:


Yup!  McCormick’s Salad Supreme!  Who knew it would be so yummy on bread!  Here’s a pic of my last batch:


The seasoning makes the bread sticks more colorful and adds a yummy flavor.  Try a NEW variation with your rolls next time you bake!  Have a great day!  (And don’t forget to comment and let me know whether you prefer raisins or no raisins! )

no NEW recipe this Thanksgiving

Hi all!  Well, as you know, I love, loVE, LOVE trying NEW things….but I never get to try any NEW recipes for Thanksgiving because we typically travel to a family member’s home and I’m always asked to bring my famous rolls!  They are REALLY yummy!  I got the recipe from an elderly friend years ago (she was quite famous for her dinner rolls too).  So, I’m just sayin’….it’s a GREAT recipe!  Try it out!

Sometimes I put some left-over dough in the freezer and bake the rolls another day….however I occasionally forget they’re there and when I pull them out, they really don’t rise very well.  BUT!….in that case, I just make scones out of them….(see tomorrow’s post for more info).

Do  you get to try NEW recipes for Thanksgiving?….Or are you always expected to bring a specialty?  Everyone have a terrific Turkey Day this week!
