Haven't done this in a long time

I can't remember the last time I made anything with yeast dough. Growing up, I learned to bake bread in 4-H and when I was a stay-at-home mom I made almost all of our bread. When the boys grew up and left home and then we began our RV travels that baking came to an end. I just checked my past blogs and discovered that over Labor Day weekend in 2012 I baked a loaf of bread and some hamburger buns. That was a looong time ago!

Today I decided to make some rolls.   I mixed the dough and let it rise.

After dividing it into thirds, I rolled out circles and cut 12 wedges out of each circle.

The first batch on the baking sheet.

Because yeast dough rises slowly, there is always a lot of waiting involved in baking.

But finally--here is the first batch out of the oven!  We had to sample one and I did a good job, if I do say so myself.  There will be more of this during our time here in Arizona where I have a good-sized oven.


  1. I used to love your homemade bread! I can almost smell the yummy goodness now! Hopefully next time we come visit you can make some for one of our meals
