Banana Bread

This is another recipe from the old recipe box… who knows how long I’ve had it for sure? I do know it is a great way to use up any old bananas that might be hanging around your kitchen.

This also works great for the freezer. Just allow the bread to cool completely before wrapping in plastic wrap and placing it in the freezer.

Mama’s Best Dinner Rolls

These are not the easiest rolls to make but these are probably my favorite rolls by far. They remind me of when we would go the Ryan’s and eat many, many years ago. When you pair these with the Whipped Honey Butter and Cinnamon Butter you have a match made in heaven.

There have been many times in the past that I had requests from neighbors to make batches of these for their Thanksgiving dinners. I always tried to make more than enough but somehow we never end up with any leftover rolls.

I probably wouldn’t try this out for the first time if things are rushed because these take a bit of time to make but they are so worth it. I also use my stand mixer to make these but they would probably be just fine with a hand mixer or by hand. These could be made ahead of time and then frozen until ready to bake.

Old-Fashioned Yeast Rolls

This is a recipe that I had scribbled down in my Thanksgiving section of my Holiday Binder… I don’t know where I got it from so I can’t give any credit but these are delicious!

Try these with one of these: Whipped Honey Butter and Cinnamon Butter Continue reading “Old-Fashioned Yeast Rolls”

Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing

I got asked for this recipe but I didn’t have it on the blog so I scrounged around my holiday binder to find it… just in time for Turkey Day! This is fairly similar to my Homemade Bread Stuffing except that it is made with cornbread… that is another recipe I’ll have to look for when I get everything unpacked! You can just make the recipe off the back of the bag and it will be fine!

Fun Fact:

What is the difference between stuffing and dressing?

Well, many times stuffing is referred to as being cooked inside the turkey… hence the name while dressing was usually cooked in a separate dish. Many people in the South refer to it as dressing no matter how you cook it.

Homemade Bread Stuffing – Updated!

I’ve updated this recipe to include for baking it separately as well as some add-ins to make it a little extra special. I can remember getting out the biggest bowls we could find to make this when I was a kid. This was always the best part of Thanksgiving for me.

Make sure to check out our Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing recipe too!

Quick & Easy Garlic Bread or Garlic Cheesy Bread

This recipe is just too easy and with just a few ingredients and minimal work you can impress your family and friends while taking an ordinary meal to an extraordinary meal. Really this is so good that a couple of guests said it was ‘the bomb’ the last time we had it and it is so easy a kindergartener can do it (with a little help when it comes to the oven).

The other great thing about this is that you can fix up a couple loaves at a time and store them in the freezer for easy additions to meals. Continue reading “Quick & Easy Garlic Bread or Garlic Cheesy Bread”

Buttermilk Biscuits

I remember learning to make these when I was really young. My first experience baking them was in a wood stove! While I’m thankful for modern conveniences nothing compares to the taste of those first biscuits I made.

A lot of people shy away from making biscuits from scratch but they are really quite simple. The unbaked biscuits also freeze well for later use! Continue reading “Buttermilk Biscuits”

Beer Bread

I love how easy this recipe is and the crust is so good. I have to be careful or I could eat all of the crust of the bread by myself! This is a recipe that I haven’t made in a while but when I went for a spell without going to the grocery store I had to use up what I found in the kitchen to make up a couple of quick meals. I made up a batch of Boston Baked Beans and wanted some fresh bread to go with it.

I had seen a bottle of beer in the fridge and had no idea where it came from or who it belonged too. After a week or so I just guessed it must’ve been something forgotten by a guest. I dug through some old recipes and found this recipe. It smelled so good when it was baking and it tasted even better.

You could play around with the ingredients to make it different flavors and such. I’d say that different beers would probably give it different flavors too but I have not experimented with that. Continue reading “Beer Bread”

Zucchini Bread

This is another recipe from my Home Ec. class. I love making this as it reminds me of all the fun we had in that class. Your kids could help with the measuring and mixing on this one too!

This is also a good way to use up an overabundance of zucchini during the gardening season. This could be made and frozen also. Continue reading “Zucchini Bread”

Emergency Rolls

These are a super easy, super quick fix for those days that get oh-so-busy! Days like today when I forgot to get my dough started for the dinner rolls I had planned to make.

These are also great when you want some fresh, hot bread to go with your meal but you don’t have the time or energy to make yeast rolls. These are so easy that my oldest sons had the recipe memorized when they were teenagers and they would make these and eat them with jelly. Continue reading “Emergency Rolls”

Cinnamon Dippers

This is yet another, sweeter, version of our basic breadstick recipe. This makes a super simple dessert or snack that the kids can help prepare. Top with a vanilla glaze to make it extra special. Continue reading “Cinnamon Dippers”

30 minute Rolls

This is my go-to recipe for hot fresh rolls in a hurry. They never fail me! Continue reading “30 minute Rolls”
