Making banana bread is easy. Waiting on it to come out of the oven is hard. Crusty on the outside and moist and flavorful inside, this recipe is sure to become one of your favorites. It also tastes great if you add fresh blueberries, chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
Start with some ripe bananas. I like to use them before they get too dark and mushy.
These are the basic ingredients and it’s so easy to make.
The mixed batter ready to be popped into the oven.
Lighter than air, screamin’ for butter, and melt in your mouth good; these are Mrs. Reynolds homemade potato yeast rolls. My mom’s famous for these in our family and she always made them for birthdays and holidays. With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I wanted to share this recipe so you could start a tradition of homemade rolls with your family.
I won’t tell you how many times I tried making these before I got them just right. I’ll show you how to make them so that your rolls come out right the first time and every time after that.
This is the dough after it’s risen overnight in the fridge.
Use a rolling-pin to roll the dough to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. I work with half the dough at a time to make it more manageable. Each half yields enough rolls to fill one 9×13 inch pan with a couple left over.
Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut the rolls, dip in butter, and place them in a pan to rise.
This is what the rolls look like after they’ve risen for about 2 hours.
These are the rolls piping hot just out of the oven. Pass the butter please!
These taste great the next day split, buttered and broiled as toast for breakfast. They also make great bread for sandwiches. (like leftover turkey)
If you have any extras, freeze them the day they’re made.
Marshmallows or brown sugar pecan streusel are typical toppings for sweet potato casseroles. Sure they’re tasty , but why choose one topping when you can have both with these Loaded Sweet Potatoes? Besides looking great, they’re easy and taste great too. Roasted pecans are the perfect crunchy contrast to the fluffy sweet potatoes. These would be delicious as a side dish for your Thanksgiving celebration.
