Remember back in the ’90s, when these tubes were a hot seller for Pampered Chef? These days, you can almost always spot one (or 3) at your local thrift store, but I’ve still got mine from the ’90s.  A little while back, some readers were asking how exactly how to make bread in Pampered Chef […]

No-Knead Batter Rolls

When I posted the no-knead English Muffin batter bread recipe last week, I was poking thru my archives to find my recipe for no-knead batter rolls, and much to my surprise, I realized I never posted it.

In fact, these are so good, I might almost prefer one over a doughnut. Seriously delicious. They’re good for […]
