My BREAD MACHINE and I have been together

for over 15 years...

and my thighs show it! LOL!

This is one small appliance that I've truly got my "money's worth" on - (I do have a 24 year old food processor that is still going strong also!) Pizza dough, bread, rolls, cinnamon rolls, etc... it makes it all! Something about the aroma of bread... YUM!

The last 2 weeks, I have been through

out a lot of dough! FLOUR DOUGH, that is!! Here's a great recipe for a dough - and then shape it into - rolls, loaves or (my boys favorite) Pigs 'n the Blanket - wrap the dough around cheese and a weiner - "supper"!


1 2/3 cups Water

2 TBSP butter

4 2/3 Flour
2/3 cup Sugar

2 tsp Salt

1 pkg Yeast

In the chamber of a bread maker; add all ingredients with the yeast on top. Set bread maker to “dough” setting—wait for cycle to finish (about 1 1/2 hrs.). Turn out dough onto a flour surface—shape to desire type of roll or loaf. Cover and rise again for 1-1 1/2 hours. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. ENJOY!

Thanks for stopping by! We're headed out and down to the Austin area to support an AWESOME student that is running cross-country at STATE competition! Grabbing geocaches along the way - also our high school football team is headed to the play-off game in Lubbock at my niece's alter mater - Frenship HS near Lubbock, TX against Colorado City - on Saturday! Go Bobcats!

Wishing you a GREAT weekend - remember to hug the ones you love the most, until the next time...
