30 Minute Dinner Rolls

 Fluffy fresh rolls in 30 minutes, from start to finish? So simple to make and wonderfully delicious, these rolls are a perfect addition to any meal!

Is there anything better than the smell of fresh baked bread? Walk into any bakery and once you smell that fresh bread, you can't help but want to buy a loaf. Warm bread out of the oven with butter, is heaven for me. It takes me back to my childhood, where my Mom would often make fresh bread to go with our dinner. Those nights were special and anytime I smell bread baking, I think of coming home from school to the smell of yeasty bread dough.

While I love the ease of going to our local bakery and picking up fresh baked bread, there is just something amazing about the smell of fresh baked bread permeating the house. With today's busy schedules, it is sometimes difficult to get dinner on the table, let alone make anything extra such as fresh bread.

What I love about these 30 minute rolls, is that they take a short time to rise so you can have them made and baked in 30 minutes. It really can't get easier than that, and they are totally worth the little extra effort. Fresh rolls for any day of the week, perfect to go along with soup or chili! The perfect recipe for any beginner bread baker.

The trick to these rolls is that the dough isn't like regular bread dough. It is a bit more wet, therefor sticky. I'm sure if more flour was added to make the dough nice and smooth, these totally would not work in 30 minutes. So, don't worry, sticky slightly wet dough is good! These bake up beautifully and are fluffy with a pillowy soft inside. The kids absolutely love these, and I'm very happy that I have an awesome quick dinner roll recipe, for when it is super hectic in the kitchen, like during the holidays.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
