BUNNY MADE MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD (with egg) into ROLLS
“Hey Jenny,  Your Simple White Bread (with Egg) recipe formed into dinner rolls made me look like a rock star this Thanksgiving.

*  For maximum rise, I used bread flour and scalded the milk (to de-activate the protease enzyme). *  I used the full 2 Tabl. of sugar for extra flavor.  *  I buttered the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan before putting the rolls in.   (Next time I will use parchment on the bottom, as they stuck just a little bit coming out of that glass pan.)  *  For extra lightness, I let the rolls rise an extra 20 mins.   *  I also glazed the rolls with 1 large egg and 1 Tablespoon of water just before baking for a little extra browning and shine.

Wow, looked like they came from a bakery and were so delicious.  Soft, tender, and moist.  For those making rolls, I suggest they remove the rolls out of the pan within 5 mins. of baking so the residual heat from the pan will not dry out the rolls. That’s what I always do.   Once the pan is cool, you can simply slide the rolls back into the baking pan for transporting or serving. I can’t wait to experiment and try these with buttermilk, herbs, cheese or rye flour, etc.  Thanks again, Bunny.”

~ This is great information for other cooks. Thanks so much for sharing so much detail. The rolls look fabulous!” ~ jenny

SHERRY MADE MY FALL-OFF-THE-BONE RIBS
“Hi Jenny, I have recently found your recipe videos!  You are so much fun to watch and I LOVE your teaching style!  If I understand correctly you are stepping back from it all.  But so thankful to have your site and look forward to making as many of your recipes as possible.  Married 35 years and I am just now learning to cook!  My family loves your Rib recipe!!!  Thank you for sharing your talents!!! Gods Blessings upon you and your family! ~ Sherri Smith, Ft. Worth, Texas.”

~ Learning to cook will bring you many health benefits. I’m happy my recipes can help. ~ jennyBUNNY MADE MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD
“Hi Jenny, I LOVE your recipe for “Simple White Bread.”  The 2nd Tablespoon of sugar gave it such a wonderful flavor.  Not sweet, just delicious.  Furthermore, after covering the loaf with foil after the first 15 mins. of baking, my loaf came out golden brown from top to bottom.  My yeast was 2 years old, so I used 2 1/4 tsps. of instant yeast, and let the bread rise for about an hour.  The result, a beautiful rise without any unsightly air holes.  It looked so good, I could barely wait to taste it or get busy baking another loaf.  I also added 3/4 of a Tablespoon of granular lecithin to the wet ingredients, so my loaf would stay fresh longer (However, I have a feeling my bread won’t last long). When the loaf came out of the oven, I immediately turned it out, then brushed it with melted butter.  It improved the appearance a bit and gave me that perfect crust for sandwich bread.  Next time, I may use an egg white wash to give the top some sheen. Anyway, thank you for a great recipe I will use again and again. I’ve included photos of my effort, below.”

~ Thank you so much. Brushing the loaf with butter is a great idea. ~ jenny

JODY MADE MY SESAME SEED BREADSTICKS
“Jenny, you rock my world!  Another recipe that’s a hit with my Hubby and me.  I ran out of sesame seeds and so I used my Trader Joe’s “Everything But the Bagel” sesame seasoning blend it’s really good.  There’s some garlic in there. Thanks again for the great recipes you share.”

~ It’s nice to see them with a different coating and the garlic sounds good. Thank you for sharing. ~ jenny

PAUL’S 11-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER MADE MY DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIES
“Hi again Jenny. This time my 10yr old daughter is in on the act. She has loves your videos so I handed over the kitchen and she did a fantastic job creating these brownies. She was worried they would be sweet but they are lovely and bitter with a rich chocolate flavour, loads of toasted nuts and a soft centre. Fab! ~ Paul in the UK.”

~ What a great job for a 10-year old! They look terrific. ~ jenny

    Jenny,

    Just thought I’d mention something interesting I noticed: My paragraph about the Easy One Bowl Chocolate Cake also appears above Sherry’s photo of the ribs!
