30 Minute Rolls

I would consider my self a huge fan of bread!    I could have it for every meal and be completely satisfied,  My back side may not be as thrilled about it, but we only live once.    When I came across this recipe for 30 minute rolls there were lots of blogs that had the same 30 minute roll recipe.  So meaning they all loved this recipe I knew I would to.   I’m still learning the ways on how to make the perfect the bread.  My 30 minute rolls pictures doesn’t even compare to the other ladies pictures but I was proud that I was actually able to make a “roll”.

The flavor was amazing, the aroma from them baking was amazing, they were super soft and moist.   I was expecting dry hockey pucks like my previous recipe I have tried.   Well this 30 Minute Roll recipe was a huge it and they were so easy to make.   I plan on making them a lot in the future.


Lather this rolls in butter, jam or even honey butter when they are fresh out of the oven.   The entire family will love these.  Plus the kiddos will have fun rolling the dough around.

Turkey Chili

I made this Turkey Chili a few weeks ago when it was freezing outside.   Of course life happened and now im just getting around to blogging about this Turkey Chili.  This was my first time trying ground turkey.   I have friends that have used ground turkey for everything so I thought I would give this  Turkey Chili  a try using ground turkey.  Of course if you know me I like convenience and I tossed everything into the slow cooker.  Which honestly is the best way and my only way to cook any kind of chili or soup.

 With this being our first time trying ground turkey im still not sure if im hooked onto quite yet.   I’m still thinking that I need to try a few more recipes to see if I like ground turkey over hamburger.

Happiness is Homemade #7

Welcome back for another great week at The Happiness is Homemade Link Party!

 Did you all have a great Valentine’s Day?  I personally am not a fan of Valentines Day.   The restaurants are busy and flowers are way to expensive.  My husband knows not to get me flowers I much rather have a new purse for the price of!   I much rather be surprised with flowers another day then expect flowers on Valentine’s Day!

No Bake Granola Bars

I remember as a little girl coming home from school and looking in the pantry for snack.   Often times I would grab a Quaker Chewy Granola Bar.   The other day my little one was looking for a snack in the pantry and I wished we had some granola bars to munch on.   I got to searching online I found a few different recipes.  I liked what one had that other didn’t so I sort of made my own concoction.   So ladies and and gents I would like to introduce these No Bake Granola Bars.   They were a huge hit with me and my hubby and even little man liked his first tastes of granola bars.   These No Bake Granola Bars and exactly what they say.  They required no baking and I had them ready in 5 minutes and ready to eat in 15 minutes.
