I finally had some time this morning to make Stacy’s delicious homemade dinner rolls. Sheesh, first brownies last night, now rolls this morning. My house smells so good! I used whole wheat flour today and let me tell you, these fluffy rolls were exactly what I pictured them to taste like. My youngest little guy is riding his bike around the house with a roll in his mouth, as I type. He loves them! Thanks for the great recipe Stacy!

    Hi Stacy,
    Ok, glad I wasn’t losing my mind, which does happen from time to time.

    I will look forward to trying some french bread. Mmmmmm. Love the Bosch!

    This is not my moms recipe but they taste the exact same! I’m so glad you liked them! They taste so good with full on white flour or even half white and half wheat! I’ll be sending you the French Bread recipe for your Bosch! It’s delish as well!

    Hi Lisa,
    I must have misunderstood Stacy, I thought these were different than your moms. At any rate, give your mother a hug from me and tell her I will cherish this recipe forever!

    My boys have been dipping the rolls in honey butter all day, these are really delicious! I’ll have to try adding raspberry, yumm!

    Those brownies are worth your while, I don’t usually make homemade brownies, but I do now!

    Please don’t give Stace the credit..my mother would be crushed. These are a family must have..even on my list of favorites on my blog. The best is at Thanksgiving when she makes honey and raspberry butter to go with them. My mouth is watering as I type.
    The brownies look really fun..I’m tempted to make them today!
