    I love making my own bread. Of the things I bake, baking bread makes my house feel like home. As bread rises and is baked, a yeasty sweet aroma wafts through the whole house, filling every room with comfort, happiness, and anticipation.

    Homemade bread can elevate any meal to something special and also can be used to make sandwiches, toast, French toast, bread puddings, bread salads, and many other dishes. I generally cut a few slices for dinner on the day I make it. Then, I wrap it tightly in cling wrap and it stays fresh and delicious for about 10 days, even without refrigeration.

    But… I think I know what you are thinking. You are thinking… you can’t make bread. But, you can! Seriously! If you’ve never made your own yeast bread before, I bet you haven’t because of one of these 3 reasons:

    Steakhouse Dinner Rolls

    Homemade Steakhouse Dinner Rolls are better than the rolls at your favorite steakhouse.  Sweet, salty, buttery, and less than 100 calories each!

    These fun little rolls are absolutely delicious! Made with simple ingredients, you will be amazed that making these homemade rolls is so easy.

    so, here’s the backstory of why I’m sharing this recipe with you…

    Several weeks ago, my husband and I decided to try a local steakhouse that we had heard was reliably good from friends and colleagues.  In the past when we have driven past this restaurant, the parking lot has been packed.  It is so busy that if you arrive more than 30 minutes after opening time, you will have a long wait to get a table.

    So, we decided to go right as the restaurant opened to give it a try.  We have just moved to a new town and want to find all the best places to grab a bite.

    We were immediately seated and our drink order was taken.  As we were perusing the menu for tasty steaks and sides, the waiter dropped off a basket of freshly baked rolls that had been brushed with melted butter.  My husband immediately pulled one from the basket.  It was warm and smelled heavenly of yeast and homemade goodness.  Or… at least at first it did.
