Random Favorites

It's time for me to share with you some of my favorite things lately...

These chocolate pudding cookies that my kids helped me make the other day.  They keep staring at me, daring me to eat them.  And I have been eating them because they are so good.
Peaches have been on sale for the last two weeks at Sprout's for as low as $0.49/lb, so I've bought about 60 lbs and have been canning them.  Wish I would have bought more.  I'm thinking peach pie, peach crisp, fruit leather, etc. 

Now that Google Reader is gone, I'm using Feedly to check up on my favorite blogs.  I've been using it for several months and like it.  The only thing that I don't like about it is when it opens up a webpage and then freezes and closes.  Hopefully they'll get the bugs worked out and it will be fixed.  Have you used Bloglovin?  I tried it, but liked Feedly better.
I just bought these pacifiers for my baby who is now 6 months (can you believe it?).  Time is flying by!  Anyway...the pacifiers glow in the dark.  So smart!  So easy to find it in the crib in the middle of the night now.
My favorite summer salad (just in case you missed my post about it the other day).

What are your favorite things this week?

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
