Salad of Dreams....

 Try this at home! Every day! You don't need no stinkin' store-bought salad!

I recommend: Two types of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, red onion, radishes, olives, olives, olives, bacon, ham, feta cheese, cheddar cheese, boiled eggs, avocado, your favorite dressing, croutons....mmm...mmm...mmmmmm!!!!!!!! 

Rolls to Kill and Die for...

Quick, dreamy, "I could eat eight of them in one sitting" rolls...

These took less than two hours: including prep time, proofing and baking. Damn they were good! Rose like a dream, too. No problems at all...except that it was hard to stop eating them. Just like the old slogan from Lay's potato chips: "No one can eat just one!"

These were baked on my grandmother's old sheet pan, too.

See? Told you that thing was good luck! ;)

Noodle Art

Noodle Art 

Accidental "Noodle Art," that is!

Because I was too lazy to look for the pasta machine. Well, when you're making homemade chicken noodle soup...the noodles should really be "rustic-cut" anyway, ha ha!

Noodle art on my grandmother's sheet pan. That pan has seen many, many, many, many kolache, bukta, cinnamon rolls and other yummy baked goods over the years. It's a lucky pan...brings good luck to the person using it. :)
