I walked into my local grocery store a few days ago and headed for one of my favorite sections: Produce. I noticed a package that had chopped Brussel sprouts with pieces of bacon. YUM!

I remembered that I already had some bacon at home so I decided to see what I could come up with using the ingredients I already had.

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2tbsp garlic*
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2tbsp cayenne pepper*

*these measurements can vary. I LOVE spice so I usually add a lot of cayenne pepper and garlic.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Wash and quarter the potatoes
  3. Using a Ziploc bag, put the potatoes in the bag and add olive oil. Then add your seasonings.
  4. Seal the bag and mix the ingredients together. Make sure all the potatoes are covered.

Homemade rolls recipe

Does anyone else out there LOVE bread? For my birthday this year my husband bought me a bread maker aka best gift ever! I use it all the time! Its nice because it has different settings and one of those settings is for making dough. Since then I’ve been experimenting with recipes for making homemade rolls. By far this has been the best one!

no bread maker? no problem-try using the dough hook on your mixer or knead by hand.

Processed with VSCOcam with f3 preset

You will need:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg *I use an egg substitute due to an allergy
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup of butter-room temperature
  • 1-1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast
preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. When it comes to bread the most important thing to do is to let it sit and rise. I recommend letting it rise for 30-40min. It should almost double in size.

Grease 12 muffin cups. divide the dough and roll into balls. Cover the dough and let it rise for about 20 more minutes.

bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Every oven varies, so I recommend setting a timer for 10 min and checking The outside of the rolls should be a light brown when they are done.


YUM! especially right out of the oven with some honey and of course butter!  Enjoy!
