Sourdough Apple Bread

This sourdough apple bread is tangy and fruity. The dough is leavened with both sourdough starter and instant yeast. It's a method I like using when I want to add flavor to my loaves, but still want to be able to follow a shorter baking schedule.

Potato Dinner Rolls

These potato dinner rolls are so light, fluffy, and moist, and they stay dinner table soft and fresh for at least a couple of days, although they'll probably disappear sooner than that.

Potato Dinner Rolls

The recipe for these potato dinner rolls is super flexible. You make and bake these rolls in just under three hours (mostly hands off). You can also let the rolls rise in the refrigerator for 8 to 16 hours before baking. This delayed rise will develop more flavor, and allow you to bake the rolls at your convenience.
