I know by now many people in the USA are thinking of snow as a four letter word. I woke up this morning to the most beautiful snowfall and I think we had about five or so inches of snow. The snow is wet and fluffy and was so pretty on the trees. As I was preparing for this post I felt as if I had written about every comfort food that you could prepare and then I had a thought. Is there anything more comforting than the smell of fresh baked bread?
Here are the pictures of our yard covered in the beautiful snow.
I am sharing two recipes from a local cookbook entitled Cooking with Authority and published by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Hospital Authority. The first one is for Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins and may seem more appropriate for a fall day but I think it would have a wonderful aroma for a cold snowy day.
The next one is for Mayonnaise Rolls and I have to say that mayonnaise is not one of my favorite condiments but I can see how it would be great to moisturize bread. I chose this because it would be easy to make and most of us have those ingredients on hand.
The next recipe is one that I have had for years and I had totally forgotten about it, The mayonnaise rolls recipe reminded me of this one that I made so many times with great success. I like it because it does include yeast and the smell of yeast rolls baking is hypnotizing. This recipe is in my handwriting and if I remember correctly, you could bake the rolls at 400 for about 13 minutes or 350 for about 18 minutes. I do remember how much we enjoyed them.
Won’t Mr. D be surprised when he comes home to the smell of fresh baked rolls? I hope you enjoy the last weekend of February. Hooray!!! Spring is coming soon. Thanks for stopping by.
