  2. I used to love any rolls hot from the oven but my precious DH has to have bread with every meal and I am burnt out on making it. My fav is an oatmeal bread. I have the recipe taped to the inside of a cabinet door so if I am not home he can make it himself.

  9. The Good Book says "Man shall not live by bread alone" That's right you need lots of fresh real butter..... ((smile))

    Your picture makes me drool all over my keyboard!!!!

  10. Oh My Heart, Betsy. We got a breadmaker for Christmas. It's the first one either of us have ever had. WOW--it's GREAT. Our favorite so far is the Sourdough---but I like them all!!!!

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  11. Another brilliant acrostic and what a clever way to get the X in there. You rule o'er us as Acrostic Queen, but if you are going to dole hot hot buttered toast, well, I think we can manage that just fine.

    My favourite would have to be hot from the oven as well, whole wheat and home made. I'm sure you make some very good bread indeed, judging the likes of your photos and such. Mmmm...

  12. Brioche every time Betsy! We have only one outlet for the genuine article in town & in typical French style, he only opens his store when he feels like it - so my 'fix' is very hit & miss. Maybe that's a good thing for my waistline though.

  14. You always make art out of these Thursday Themes, so clever and witty.
    There is nothing more tranquil than making fresh bread roles on a Sunday morning, while the scent spreads around the hose, mixed with fresh brewed coffee and the sun rises.

  44. At first sight of that bread on the dashboard, I was already hungry. Fresh bread is so good, but I have to butter and jelly to make it really great.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh my Betsy, you out did yourself this time!

    I need to give your roll recipe to my 25 year old son. He's taught himself to make bread. He told me today, he make potato soup and sour dough bread bowls yesterday. I asked where mine is. I love my ADHD child...he's all over the map.

  46. Put me down for huge puffy yeast rolls. Slap some butter on them and WOW! You have the best lookin' food as I have said multiple times. I do enjoy my bread.Yummy for the tummy!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  48. Mmm, all yummy breads. B would be banana bread for me though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Any bread is a great bread. One can never have too much bread. I have bread on this thigh and and that thigh and this hip and that hip, well you get the picture.

    Bread list is so wonderful and I am drooling at the pic of those rolls. I need to get my bread machine out and make some bread this weekend. Well okay, maybe I should exercise first. Well more than my fingers anyway.

    God bless.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think I probably like every bread ever made....my mom is that way too. But, my favorites are sourdough bread and yeast rolls (just like you said...not out of the oven and with butter. YUM!)

    ReplyDelete
