Sweet Bread Rolls

You might not have heard much from me lately, but rest assured I’m in the kitchen cooking up lots of recipes to share with all of you. I’m home– in Ohio, helping family get through some pretty difficult times. Amidst it all, the baking and cooking, testing and developing healthy and halal dishes I think you’ll love is motivating me to be in a place where I’m happiest and that is most therapeutic to me and my family.

This recipe for sweet bread rolls not only warms up the kitchen with the smell of freshly baked dough, but these little bunches go well with just about any dinner you put on the table.  We’ve had them with soups & stews, used them to dunk in pasta sauces and alongside roasted meats. They freeze wonderfully so make these ahead of time, especially if you’re expecting guests soon. That would be one less menu item to prepare on the day your guests arrive.

This is how I’m staying warm in the midst of snowstorms that keep alternating between Chicago and Cleveland- two cities I’d been planning to be traveling back and forth from at this time, but as we all know, Allah (God) is the best of all Planners…

Enjoy the recipe–and stay warm with those you love.
