Herbed Batter Rolls
About this Cook
I have 3 kids and a wonderful husband. Well, I have 5 kids, that is. 2 stepchildren and 3 grandchildren complete the family.
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, casseroles, soups, beans, steak to name a few.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Superbowl Sunday and New Years Eve I don't cook dinner, I fill the house with new appetizer recipes! It's fun.
My cooking tragedies
The time I forgot to put baking soda in the "Microwave Peanut Brittle". What a disaster. The pan had to be tossed!

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans
This was so simple and yet so delish! The kids (16, 8 and 7) all loved it! The potatoes didn't need any of our normal toppings (butter, sour cream, etc). I doubled the recipe and I think I messed up because it was tooooo peppery. But it was so good we still ate it. Can't wait to make this while camping. Oh, one more thing. I tossed the veggies and meat in the oil. (also the salt n pepper) much easier and no problem with sticking.

Herbed Batter Rolls
I would give it 5 stars, but I just don't feel I am an expert on breads or rolls yet. Here's the scoop. I've recently been the lucky recipient of a beautiful stand mixer (gift from the hubby). We started (desperately trying) to make bread, and no success!! So, I said to my BORED 14 year old son..."why don't you show us how it's done?". I suggested he puts his parents bread making efforts to shame. The first batch (yes he made two batches the same day) he asked me a couple of questions. Do I just crack the egg in the bowl, is this smooth and how long should it rise? He made the first batch 97% on his own. The recipe says to scoop into 8 muffin cups. THEY WERE HUGE! The 3 kids and I chomped them down! But wait, dad didn't get any yet! So my son moved on to a second batch. 100% on his own. It made 11 this time. (I think 10 makes them the perfect size) They are delish to us! The flavor is great. I think mom will try them next time and expirement with a little fresh grated parm cheese & herbs on top. Oh, one more thing, about 1/2 way through cooking we brushed them with melted (real butter) ENJOY!

Pastitsio III
Sorry, this wasn't for me. Those that are a fan of the traditional Greek dish may not like that I am only giving 2 stars. After all, I should have known it would have a different taste by the spices. But I had to give it a try. The kids liked it, my picky 6 year old had 4 servings. It takes too much work though. You can read the recipe, but until you've actually made it you don't realize how much work goes into what seems to be a simple dish. I thought to myself, after eating it...that I could make it real good by changing the spices and then adding some cheese on top. But why? There are so many other recipes out there to try. I think I'll just chalk this one up to experience. Thanks for the recipe, but it doesn't suit my tastes.
