Oatmeal Rolls

Oatmeal Rolls

Oatmeal Rolls

Most people tell me what they like best about these rolls is they're so moist. I like them because they're simple to make...freeze well...and because I grew up on oatmeal and still love it! My husband and I have a small farm. We bought the land 15 years ago, then—along with out two children—lived in the basement of the house until we could finish building the upstairs ourselves! That finally happened 2 years ago...now I have a kitchen baking center plus two shelves that are strictly for my cookbooks.

I make my festive-looking coffee cakes at Christmas and for breakfast company. My husband doesn't usually care for apricots, but he loves these. The holidays are a busy time on our small New England acreage. In addition to a few cattle and some chickens, we raise 50 turkeys every year! —Kelley Winship, West Rutland, Vermont

After a basic white bread is mastered, this recipe is a great next step in the art of bread baking. Here you'll use the Quick Mixing Method, where the dry yeast and the dry ingredients are mixed together before the warm liquid is added.

Christmas Braid

Christmas Braid

Christmas Braid

This holiday bread is easy to make, although the braiding takes a bit of practice. I serve it for evening coffees, then use the rest toasted for breakfast. I also give it as gifts—it's delicious with cheese—and it always goes over big at Christmas bake sales. My husband's a dairy farmer. I work as a bank teller and stenographer. At home, I enjoy cooking and crafts.

Cheesy Onion Burger Buns

These buns regularly get packed as part of my husband's lunch! I've copied this recipe for many people—one of the nice things about it is that it also makes very good breadsticks to take to covered-dish suppers or take to picnics. I like to cook...and taste, too! In addition, I enjoy sewing and all kinds of crafts, and I've been fortunate to win several blue ribbons at Country Fair.

Cream-Filled Coffee Cake

Cream-Filled Coffee Cake

Need to take a spectacular coffee cake to an early morning gathering? Bake this coffee cake several days ahead, slice each in half and freeze. Early the day of the event, prepare the filling and spread over the thawed cakes. Then just refrigerate filled coffee cakes until ready to serve.

Whole Wheat Butterhorns

Whole Wheat Butterhorns

I take Whole Wheat Butterhorns to potluck suppers, and I serve them to guests—they've always brought many requests for the recipe. They're a favorite at home, too. The rolls don't take long to make, and they freeze very well for future use. My husband and I have four married children and three grandchildren. We have a hay and cattle operation, and he's also a carpenter. I enjoy gardening...every year I can and freeze my harvest, then share the bounty with friends and family.

Reuben Loaf

Reuben Loaf

Reuben Loaf

When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste! It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too. My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.
