Helm’s Deep Quick Bread Recipe

Can you send me your recipe for the rolls? I’d love to try them out.

Certainly.  Here it is:

Ingredients:

6 1/2 cups Flour
2 cups Warm Water (110-120 degrees)
1/3 cup Sugar
2 packages Yeast (4 1/2 teaspoons)
2 tsp. Salt
2 Eggs
1/3 cup Crisco (we use the butter-flavored)

Put water, yeast, and sugar into a large mixing bowl and beat with a mixer.  Add salt and 2 cups of flour and beat for 2 minutes.  Add eggs and oil, and beat for 1 minute.  Add rest of flour and mix by spoon until it gets thick, then knead by hand for about 5-10 minutes. Let dough rest in bowl for 20 minutes.  Shape dough into dinner rolls (should make about 2 dozen) and placed on greased cookie sheet or an untreated baking stone.  Cover and let raise for another 20 minutes, then bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from oven, brush with butter or margarine, and let cool.

Now, here’s the great thing about this recipe: it’s also the same one we use to make our go-to homemade bread.  Instead of shaping into rolls, you can shape them into 2 loaves in a greased bread tin or stone (make sure to grease the stoneware in this case for easy removal of the loaves).  We have also used this recipe for pizza dough (makes about 2-3 13” crusts), garlic breadsticks, hamburger/sandwich buns, etc.  It’s a great, versatile recipe.

Enjoy!

Guac!

If it isn’t too personal a question - what do you put in your guacamole?

I was going to ask exactly what palm asked, I love a good guac!

I’d love some. I need to sleep before I eat anything else.

It’s pretty simple:

  • 2-3 good, ripe avocados
  • 1/2 Diced red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • A couple of Roma tomatoes, diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 T chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Mash it up, mix it and eat.  Nom.
