I made our own turkey dinner this past weekend and attempted rolls again. I can count on one finger how many times I've made rolls from scratch that turned out decent. Don't know what it is about me and rolls! But I tried the recipe from Our Best Bites Cookbook that you can find here on their website, and they were heavenly lightly browned clouds of perfection!
Those Best Bites girls are my best friends in the kitchen! Everything I've made from their cookbook or website is amazing! I think the secret (which they share in their recipe) is using whole fat milk. I didn't have any whole milk but I used 1/2 c whipping cream and 1 1/2 1% milk and look how they turned out!!
We also had my mother-in-law's cranberry relish. Growing up ours always came from a can and I have to admit, I don't think I ever even tried the stuff. My mother-in-law makes hers fresh and it's really very easy and SOOOOO GOOD! My almost 2 year old gobbled it up and had thirds and fourths and wanted more!
Here's the recipe:
1 bag fresh cranberries
1 large apple
1 c sugar
Combine all ingredients in your food processor and chop to the consistency of your liking.
That's it! So good on those delicious rolls!!!
On another note, my kids are home from school this week and those little turkeys get up so early when there's no school! But I am thankful to have them home this week! And thankful that soccer season is over, there's no cub scouts or piano lessons and I have them all to myself on our own time!
I'm also thankful for my washing machine and dryer that can wash that mountain of dirty clothes we've accumulated since last Monday!
