Whole Wheat Rolls ~ SUCCESS!

Perfect 100% White Wheat Bread or Rolls

Add to a large bowl in this order:
3 Cups hot water
1 ½ Tbsp yeast
(Optional 1 tsp white sugar to help activate yeast and allow to sit for a few minutes until mixture is bubbly)
1/3 Cup oil
1/3 Cup honey
7-8 cups whole white wheat flour
1 Tbsp salt
1-2 Tbsp dough enhancer

Mix well, knead on floured surface for 10 minutes, adding flour as needed to obtain a smooth, non-sticky dough. 

Divide into rolls and place on greased glass pans.

Before rising
Cover with damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, 45-60 minutes.

Rising in my oven, heated slightly since it's cold in my house.
Risen, before baking
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes (rolls) or 25-30 minutes (loaf). 

Here's that secret ingredient, Dough Enhancer. I got this small can for about $2 at the Walmart on Country Club and Baseline (Mesa, AZ) in the Emergency Preparedness section (with the cans of freeze-dried foods). I have not found it at the Greenfield or Stapley Walmarts.

I am so pleased with my new ability to make these amazing and nutrition-filled rolls!

Pollo Asado

My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.

Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

Wassail - Warm Drink

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul. This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.

For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot: 64 ounces apple juice 64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing) 3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.


A definite favorite for all who have enjoyed them.

Preheat OVEN to 400 degrees.
1 ½ CUP sugar
½ CUP shortening
½ CUP margarine (softened)
2 eggs

2 ¾ CUPS flour
2 TEASPOONS cream of tarter
1 TEASPOON baking soda

Add more flour if needed to be able to make firm balls out of the dough. Shape dough into 1-1½ inch balls and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place about 1-2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack.

Recipe makes about 48 2-inch cookies.
Estimated prepare and bake time is 30-40 minutes.
NOTE: An additional 1/2 cup of flour may be added for more fluffy cookies (as shown in photo).
