There is nothing quite like the festive Holiday season! Thrilled to share my Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Bake. There are so many special traditions that make the season a joy for the whole family.

To start, I love the Holiday baking that happens practically everyday from the end of November to the end of December.  Getting in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother often to bake up goodies for our family and friends is a must every year.  Once our goodies are wrapped up, we take the boys around to our friends and neighbors to share our surprise.  One of our very favorite traditions as a family.  There’s always lots of giggling and silly happenings with my boys :)

One Hour Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

One Hour Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

Dec 14, 2015 | Dinner, Christmas, Thanksgiving | Tags: , ,

My One Hour Buttermilk Dinner Rolls need to be added to your next dinner! Simple, quick, soft and delicious!

Not sure how it’s already the middle of December!  Anyone else kind of freaking out?  Trying to relax, but there’s still so much to do right?  One of these years I’ll get all of my shopping done and Christmas Cards mailed by now, lol.

I’ve been tinkering around with this recipe since right before Thanksgiving and I’ve finally got it how I wanted!  I like quick fix, soft and fluffy.  This is what you’ll get with these babies.  You can either roll them in balls and place them side by side or knot them like I’ve done here.  I’ve done it both ways and both are delicious.  I will say these are best eaten within 2 days.  After the first day, warm them in the microwave for 10 seconds or so.
