Homemade Dinner Rolls

When Jack took these homemade dinner rolls out of the oven for the first time, I immediately cried, They‘re SO cute! I had asked him to make a dinner roll recipe for the blog, but I didn‘t know how it‘d turn out. I started to get skeptical when he told me he was scrapping the traditional milk, melted butter, and eggs to make his recipe vegan. Jack‘s a good baker, but I was preparing myself for at least a few wonky tests. T

Green Bean Salad

I am so excited to share this green bean salad recipe with all of you! I first made it way back in the summer, on a day when I had a gorgeous bag of string beans in the fridge.
