Below are some recipes for food I may have mentioned in one of my books, or else they're just good stuff I wanted to share with y'all. I've just started this page, so keep checking back to see what I've added!

Happy eating 🙂

(Sorry--I have these recipes handwritten or typed out with no calorie count, nutritional info, etc. Serving sizes are estimates.)

Mayonnaise Biscuits
Yes, mayo. These are to-die-for fluffy and tender biscuits. Don't buy those nasty canned biscuits ever again!

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 (heaping) C mayonnaise
1 C milk

Mix dry ingredients, then work in mayo until the mixture is crumbly. Add milk and toss with fork just until mixed. Drop large egg-sized dough balls onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 12 minutes. Makes 9-12 biscuits.

Best Rolls Ev-Uh
These are perfect for impressing the guests with warm, homemade rolls. They're also terrific for hamburger buns!

6 C flour

2-1/2 T active dry yeast

2 C warm (110°F, 45°C) water

2/3 C sugar

1/3 C melted butter

1-1/2 tsp salt

(If you have a Kitchenaid mixer, use it!) Put yeast and warm in a large bowl with sugar and let "proof" for 15 minutes.

When mixture is bubbly, add 3 cups of the flour one cup at a time, then add butter and salt, followed by remainder of flour (one cup at a time again). Mix until well incorporated. (If using Kitchenaid, let it do its thing for about ten minutes, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula occasionally.) If not using a Kitchenaid, put dough onto a very lightly floured board and knead for ten minutes.

Lightly grease the bowl you used for mixing (no need to wash) and put dough back in bowl(same with Kitchenmaid--need to grease the bowl), cover top of bowl with plastic wrap and put in a warm place to rise 1-2 hours, until doubled. Punch down, knead again for 5 minutes. Form into rolls about three inches across (twice that size for hamburger buns), place on lightly greased cookie sheets and let rise in warm place again for another 45 mins-1 hour (you can brush with egg whites before second rise for a glossy finish).

Bake at 350° 15 mins. (You can also use this recipe for awesome sandwich bread. Just form into loaves after second kneading, place in two 9x5 loaf pans, let rise until 1 inch above pan, bake at same temp for 30 mins.)
