While recovering from surgery, I did a lot of Internet searches looking for quick and easy recipes for Bear, my husband to use as he was now the chief bottle washer and cook. I found that though he understood the mechanics of cooking, he wasn’t working smart. I would sit in the kitchen and tell him what to get out, how to line up to use and special tips – like how to temper an egg before adding to hot pudding. One of the sites that I found was Wives With Knives. At least he would appreciate their blog title. They have a Homemade Sandwich Buns recipe which can be made in 60 minutes. No, Bear didn’t make homemade buns, but I did this week. It was a good and easy recipe which reminded me of hamburger buns that I use to make when my son was a 7th grader. He now teaches high school history, so you know I have had this one awhile.This is a nice sandwich bread although I made the mistake of making 8 rolls which were too large. Next time I will try going with 12 and putting half in the freezer for another time.
Thinking about buns reminds me of another of my favorite Internet sites, King Arthur Flour. You can chat with a Baker and the amount of recipes and information on the site is great. I called once to learn how to make adjustments for using flour instead of the called for cake flour and the gal I talked to was so helpful and friendly.
