Although I cook a lot, yeast gives me a lot of anxiety. I’m always watching it unsure if it’s doing what it’s supposed to. Did it rise enough? Was the milk warm enough? Is my yeast old? Did I use the right kind of yeast?
For someone who bakes regularly, I’m kind of a hot mess when it comes to yeast.
This last month, I tackled cinnamon rolls, and it was much of the same. Lots of uncertainty went into these rolls, but guess what? They turned out really well.
With Memorial Day quickly approaching, I have backyard barbecues on my mind. I had planned to start a grilling series this week, but for some reason, my outdoor grilling mojo is a little off. Two, failed burgers and one empty gas tank later, I have absolutely nothing to share with you on grilling this week.
So instead of the planned grilling tips, I thought it would be nice to share some potluck friendly recipes. Just a few favorites that I think would be great for a long, lazy weekend or impromptu bbq. I’ve made all of them before and have had success with each.
