Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Fluffy Dinner Rolls

I've told you all before how much I like playing with dough.
I want to share with you our favorite dinner rolls. These rolls turn out nice and fluffy and they are awesome fresh out of the oven with a dollop of butter! 
I always make a big batch, because, well, we are a big family! Aside from that, everyone always wants more than one! 

You can make these as regular dinner rolls, or you can try the variation for hamburger buns or sandwich rolls.
If you want to make the dough ahead of time to freeze, you can stop after step 6, and either wrap well and freeze, or you can divide it into rolls, place on an oiled baking sheet, freeze, then wrap well. Just pop the frozen dough in the fridge the night before you want to use it, and continue the directions below.

Fluffy Dinner Rolls
What You Need:
1 1/2 cu milk
2 TB butter, margarine, or shortening
3-4 cups white flour, plus more for dusting (you can use all purpose or bread flour. You can sub 1 1/2 cups wheat or oat flour for 1 1\2 cups of the white, if you like)
2 TB sugar (you can sub brown sugar or honey, if you like)
2 1/4 tsp. or 1 packet of yeast (dry active, rapid rise, bread machine.... whatever you have)
1 tsp salt
melted butter or olive oil for brushing

What You Do:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter to 120 degrees (warm, but not hot, to the touch).
  2. Mix 2 cups flour with remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, and stir.
  4. Add enough flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to make a dough.
  5. Turn out the dough on a floured surface and knead it until it is smooth, about 8-10 minutes. Add more flour if necessary, 1 TB at a time.
  6. Cover dough and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  7. Divide dough into 24 pieces, and shape into smooth balls. Place on an oiled pan, cover loosely and let rest 30-45 minutes more.
  8. Remove cover. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.
  9. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter or olive oil.
***Variation for hamburger buns or sandwich rolls***
  • Prepare as above, except in step 6, let the dough rise for only 20 minutes.
  • divide the dough into 12 pieces, and form into smooth balls.
  • Place on oiled baking sheets and press down slightly. Let rise 30 minutes and bake as above.
