Dinner Rolls

Dear Sally,

I have found Jesse’s new favorite recipe. I was home sick last Monday and spent almost an entire afternoon on Pinterest and other blogs I stumbled upon in my travels. While I was mulling around I found an AMAZING recipe for dinner rolls at Nomemade . These are the fluffiest things I have ever made and Jesse tells me they are delicious. I served them two nights in a row when we were hosting guests and they were a big hit. Unfortunately (like most delicious things in this world) I can’t eat them but I enjoy how much Jesse loves them so they are still wonderful to make. You need to set aside a morning or afternoon for these so that they have the right amount of time to rise. Trust me it is worth it!

Dinner Rolls
Ingredients:
2 c warm water
2/3 c milk
2 Tbsp dry yeast
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp salt
1/2 c butter (melted)
1 egg
4 1/2- 5 c all purpose flour
Directions:
In a Kitchenaid mixing bowl, stir in warm water and milk.
Add yeast, then sugar, salt, butter, egg, and 2 cups of flour.
Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then 2 minutes at medium speed.
Add 2 more cups of flour, mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then 2 minutes at medium speed.
Add 1/2 cup flour more at a time.
Dough should be soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff.
Scrape the dough off the sides of the bowl and pour about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil around the sides of the bowl so that the bowl is coated.
Allow the dough to rise in a warm place until it doubles in size and rises to the top of the bowl.
 Once the dough has risen, place your dough on a flat floured surface, then divide the dough in half.
Roll out 1/2 the dough into a circle.
Using a knife, cut the dough into 16 even slices.
 Begin to roll the slice of dough in, starting from the wide end and tuck the small point underneath.
Place rolls on parchment-lined baking sheet.
Do the same for the other half of the dough and let them rise for 1- 1 1/2 hours, until double in size.
Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes or until golden-brown.
I had to substitute regular milk for milk powder and I used the dough hook on my mixer right from the begining of the mixing process and it all worked out. You may want to grease your hands when working with the dough on the counter as it is quite sticky when it first comes out of the bowl.
My search for amazing and simple recipes continues. I hope you are keeping warm in this chilly winter weather.
Love,

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
