Fluffy Potato Rolls

Because my life wouldn’t be complete without dinner rolls, I made more for you. This time? The best, fluffiest, most perfect Potato Rolls you’ll ever eat.

Try to eat just one. I dare you.

Potato Rolls

Ever since I made 45 Minute Dinner Rolls (and her sister, small batch dinner rolls), I’ve been dying to make Potato Rolls. One, they just sound cool (potatoes IN BREAD??) and two, potato bread is so darn good that I know homemade would be even better.

I was right.

Potato Rolls

I don’t make dinner rolls every night, but I kind of wish I could. However, because I need help with my willpower (read: I have none when it comes to bread), I only make them on certain occasions. One of those occasions is soup night.

I love having soup for dinner and I’d eat it several times a week all year long except for two reasons:

  1. It’s blasted hot here from May-October and no one wants soup in 100 degree weather.
  2. Jordan hates soup. She hates most of what I make for dinner, but soup is her #1 nemesis.

Since it’s winter and generally California-cold (which means it’s in the 60s and my fingers are blue 90% of the day), I like to make soup at least once a week for dinner. If we don’t have some sort of bread in the house I can appease Jordan with, I make dinner rolls.

You should have seen her face when she saw this pan of Potato Rolls! It kind of mirrored mine.

A little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, these Sweet & Spicy Pretzels are the perfect snack or party food! Things I didn’t know until last week: My backyard hose has a leak. A pool should take 12-24 hours to fill. Running water for over 24 hours will either (a) drive you insane...

Red Velvet Blondies

Red Velvet Blondies (6 of 11)w

Would you call them red velvet blondies or red velvet brownies? I’m calling them blondies because (1) they’re not brownies, these are brownies and (2) I used my blondie base. It’s settled: they’re red velvet blondies. Last week Jordan was home sick for a few days. This made me appreciate several things: 1. Zicam....
