  1. How easy are these? AND they turn out terrific too! =)<br/>They are light as feather and the herbs are just right. They do have a slight sweetness, but it paired well with the herbs. Served with a crockpot roast & vegetables. In memory of Janice.
  2. This were not only tasted wonderful but were so easy to make. I used fresh dill and followed the directions exactly as posted and they turned out wonderful. Light and tender with just the right amount of herbs. Thanks Nick's Mom - I didn't change a thing.
  3. Exceptionally good rolls... Light as a feather and the dough was so tender! They went great with my lasagna soup!
  4. These are so incredibly wonderful! I cannot get over how good these are. And truly fool-proof. For the first rise of the dough, I had turned on the oven to Warm and then shut it off. Or so I thought. Apparently I had missed the shutting it off step. Luckily I caught it quickly enough that I didn't over heat the dough! And the dough came back to rise beautifully both times! I was out of dill weed so I added in an herb medley (no salt) that I have in it's place. The flavour is fantastic for these! Next time, it has been requested that I at *least* double the recipe! Thanks a lot for posting, Sis!
  5. I made these for PAC Spring 08. My DD and I didn't really care for them. We thought they were to sweet for the herbs. My DH on the other hand likes them because they are both sweet and savory. I plan on trying these again but cutting down on the sugar. I might also add olive oil in part or completely in place of the canola oil. We have never had spoon bread and I like the idea of not kneading. Thanks for introducing us to it, we will try it again.
