  1. Wonderful and easy-to-make rolls. We didn't have wheat germ so used flax seed but otherwise made as directed. We used these a pull apart rolls which we all enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
  2. *pursed lips looking stern with hands on hips* Okay, YOU. Why'd you have to go and show me this recipe? Made for A-NZ#61 recipe tag.
  3. BK I really enjoyed the flavor and the SMELL of this bread. I made a loaf of bread and 6 hoagie rolls. We used the rolls last night for italian sausage and onion sandwiches for family dinner. OH YEA! I also used my bread machine to mix the dough, then free shaped the rolls and the bread boule. Cooked these on my stone. I did get a pic of the rolls but the bread was gone in a split. I used sage freshly ground from my kitchen plant and like it's sister herbs, fresh ground herbs made the house tantilize. Will make these often.MAde for AUs/NZ Swap 38
  4. Excellent recipe BK. I have to tell you that I used the bread machine to do the mixing and kneading and the dough turned out beautifully. I got six big sandwich buns from it and I can't wait to make a chicken sandwich on one. As a plus they smell wonderful while baking :D.
  5. I made these to go along with "Recipe#176454" and they were came out perfectly. They are very buttery and I love the sage flavor. The dough was very easy to work with and I didn't need to change a thing! Thanks, BK.


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
