NEW on the blog: Recipe Index

Hi guys!  It's an exciting blogging day for me today.  It's the day I finally finished making a recipe index!

I've been wanting to make one forever, but there have always been other things to be done at home.  I took advantage of the quiet with my big kids in school and our major house projects being done.  I ignored the dishes and the laundry and made an index.

Just find the RECIPES tab and click on it.


Then you'll find a list (it might be a little long, I got carried away) of lots of categories of recipes.


Just click on one of them, like maybe APPETIZERS, DIPS, AND CHIPS...and it will take you to this.
There you'll find all of my favorite recipes for that category.  I went through all the recipes on my blog and only included the ones that I love and still make.  

So, that means that you have an organized list (with pictures) of my favorite recipes.  Yay!

Hopefully you'll forgive me for my amateur photography, especially in the early years of my blog (est. 2008).  I'd love to take some photography classes, but that will happen someday.

It was fun to go through all my recipes and remember them.  I was amazed at how many chocolate chip cookie recipes that I'd blogged about.  I deleted a few and left you my favorites.  

I think I have more cookie recipes than anything on the blog.  :)  Yum!

I have lots of plans for other indexes to make my blog more organized.  I know I have lots of posts floating around on my blog that I have forgotten about.

One more thing...I kept my Ultimate List of Dinner Ideas.  It has links to my recipes, links to other recipes that I like and names of meals that my family likes so I can look at it and get ideas for planning meals.  I refer to it all the time!


All righty then.  Enjoy the recipe index!  Thanks for being my blogging friend.  :)

I better go do the laundry.

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

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

One Hour Breadsticks

I got this fast and easy recipe for breadsticks from my sister over 10 years ago. I've been making it ever since. Give them a try. They're super easy and yummy! Printable recipe One Hour Breadsticks recipe from my sister, Lissa Ingredients 3 c. flour 2 T. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 1 1/2 c. warm water 1 T. instant yeast Directions Mix all ingredients for three minutes in mixer (I use my kitchenaid), adding more flour if needed so the dough is workable and not too sticky.  Let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out and brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garlic salt/powder.  Put on greased pan and cut into breadsticks. (I use a pizza cutter to cut them).  Let rest for 10 minutes.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 350 or until lightly browned. My notes: I usually half this recipe and it fills up almost a whole cookie sheet or a pizza stone. If you want to
