Buttermilk Pancakes II
Made these this morning. They were so light and fluffy, we had to hold them down to take a bite! Thanks, Burygold!

Challah II
Absolutely, unequivocably the best Challah I have ever made. If you follow the directions, you'll make a perfect loaf, with the possible exception of the baking time and temperature. I depart a bit from the prescribed method. First, Challah dough (if it's the real thing)does not like to rise quickly. I like to make the dough in the evening, throw it into a small plastic garbage bag, which has been sprayed inside with Pam-spray, then leave in the refrigerator overnight. Next morning, punch down & let it rise till double. You may have to wait up to three hours for this, but be patient with it! When you punch it down the second time, give it some time to rest before you go jerking it around again. This dough is not one to be hurried! When it's had time to relax, go ahead and braid it, and then let it rise again--at its own pace, please! You go throwing dough into a slightly heated oven, or out in the sunlight, and you're going to get sour bread that tastes more like a keg of beer than sweet bread. 350 oven? What's with that?

Sunday Dinner Rolls
I gambled on these, big time. With guests coming to dinner after church the next day, I decided to take the risk and give these a try. I used 1/2 freshly-ground, whole wheat flour instead of all white; otherwise followed the recipe as written. I have tried more than a few bread/roll recipes over the years. This one takes first place in my list of favorites, and my guests loved them.The only change I might suggest would be to reduce the sugar just a tad, maybe by half, but I will probably continue to follow this recipe as is but for the w/w flour. A hearty "thumbs up" to you and your delicous rolls, Martha, and thanks so much for sharing! Pam
