Foolproof Delicious Dinner-Rolls

I have tried SO many different dinner roll recipes in the past but have never found one I love! I’m very “picky” and don’t want just ANY recipe- I have to find the best! I want my roll to be soft and light, pretty and round, golden on the top… but not on the bottom! Then today I finally mastered a perfect dinner roll for the first time EVER- and ironically, it was the EASIEST recipe I have ever tried.

Fall/Harvest Wreath

Fall/Harvest Wreath

Today I took down all of my Halloween decorations– including my Halloween wreath, and just didn’t feel quite right about leaving my door completely naked out there in the cold, so I decided to dress it up with a nice fall-themed wreath! (Now I have learned how easy they are to make i’m addicted. I’ll probably start making them for every occasion I can think of!)

Poached Pear with Mascarpone Cream Filling

My husband and I don’t share many of the same hobbies and interests since i’m such a girly-girl, and he’s such a guy, but one thing we do love to do together is watch food & cooking shows. This summer we followed ‘The Next Food Network Star’ and ‘Masterchef,’ and in both of those shows they made poached pears! I’ve never tried one before, so I was kind of intrigued- and it looked kind of simple to make, so I just went for it. I’m glad I did too!

Traditional English Roast Beef Dinner with Yorkshires

My first ever roast!! Growing up, my Mum would make the most AMAZING Roast dinners every sunday after church. Looking back, I don’t know how she did it… every plate was piled high with food, and there were nine members of my family plus my parent’s friends, my friends, my brothers and sisters friends…it soon added up to about 20 people, and it was a loud, crazy happy place to be! I miss being with all my English friends and family, and I miss my mum’s English roasts, which is why I have decided to learn how to make them! (That, and plan a trip to England this summer!)

My Little Cowboy

My Little Cowboy

It’s kind of perfect that Braden wanted to be a little cowboy for Halloween, because we live in the wild wild west! Apart from all the green irrigated farmland around here, it’s VERY dry and hardly ever rains– and there are tumbleweeds everywhere! It made for some really cool pictures. P.S. Isn’t he the cutest cowboy you have EVER seen?! I just love my little guy!
