Who Will Help Me Make the Bread?

     Ahhh... The Little Red Hen.  The age-old tale of hard work, determination, and comeuppance.   And wheat multiplication of Biblical proportions.  But it's a shame the other animals wouldn't help that sassy little hen.  They missed out on an authentic farm to table experience! 

     My youngest helped me today, not because my eldest said "Not I," however.  Poor guy was sleeping off a fever.

     I used my Mom's bread recipe to make rolls.  I substituted honey for the sugar and it was great!

Iron Man takes baking very seriously. 

     I made the recipe as usual, subbed honey for the 1/2 C brown sugar and after the punch down, I divided the dough into 16 pieces.  For the second rise, I put them in a deep dish pizza pan.  It's OK if they touch a little bit.  I cooked them for 10 minutes at 375° and then about 45 at 350°.

     These are especially good with Chicken Soup with Rice!


  1. Lovely photos and what a special time together baking bread. I hope your older son is feeling better soon!

    1. I am constantly amazed at how eager they are to help in food preparation. Maybe I spend too much time doing it... o.O He loved to help, and yes, my oldest is pretty much back to normal now! What a difference a couple of days makes!

  2. What a great shot of the rolls at the end--in the perfect light!
