Decadent Dinner Rolls - Bread Machine Recipe

Thursday, March 31, 2011

I'm sitting here at close to 6 pm impatiently awaiting the arrival of the cookbook my glorious mother purchased for me.  She said she got it from  I turned her into a Gilt addict a few years ago, even though I have actually never bought anything from the site.

UPS has declared that it will be here before the end of the day, and so far nothing has arrived.  I keep refreshing the tracking information every so often and NOTHING.  Patience is not a virtue I hold.

On another note, I used to have this wonderful website where I could search recipes, upload my own, etc.  It was called  I loved them so much, I even paid for the premium membership (no ads) and bought a few memberships for my friends.  So one day, I get an email from them saying they were changing their name to  Okaaaaay.  I'll go with it.  Once they made the change, my "premium" account wasn't so premium and I got ads all over the place as well as pop-ups (major pet peeve).  I let it go a few weeks hoping it would change.  When it didn't, I decided I was going to send them an email about the whole thing.  That night, I got an American Express gift card in the mail for around ten dollars and a letter explaining it was a refund for my premium membership.

Needless to say, I haven't been there in awhile and it's sad to me because I loved that site.  I've been a member since 2002.

Any recommendations?  I hear is good.  Just haven't given it a real shot yet.  Leave me your suggestions of great recipe sites in the comments!

Is it wrong to use the bread machine to make bread and dinner rolls just so my apartment smells super yummy?  If it is, I don't want to be right.

Step 4 - Shape into rolls as desired

Step 6 - After they've risen, brush them with egg/sugar mixture

Step 7 - Bake and ENJOY.  
These never last long at our place.  So moist and yummy!

PS: UPS STILL isn't here.  *grumble*

I like All Recipes, and I see that's where you got this recipe from. I really like that they have reviews - that's helpful in deciding whether or not to make a recipe. I also use "Epicurious", "King Arthur Flour", and you can always use "" to find stuff people have made on their blogs.

Thanks, Karen - I will check out those that I haven't before. I have been to All Recipes - and I did get this from the old Recipezaar site, but it must be duplicated there, as well. :)

Have you ever used It's my personal favorite and I've had a paid membership for the last year. You can use their site fully without paying, but the database is so huge and there are soooooooo many helpful comments, suggestions and alterations on each and every recipe, and you can only print the comments with the recipe if you are a premium member. The spectrum ranges from quick recipes similar to what you would find on the back of a Kraft box, to more impressive recipes (such as truly authentic shrimp and crawfish etouffe). And if someone tries to pass something off as authentic, the commentors call them out. Also, I like that you can do a specific search and put in ingredients you want and/or leave out ingredients you don't want.

Oh, I just saw the above comments. Well, here's my thoughts on Allrecipes anyway : )

Did you ever get your book?
