A Thanksgiving favorite. They are even better the next day, cut in half, a little mayo, pepper, and leftover turkey, then off to the the mall at 6 am for Black Friday shopping.

I liked this recipe but found the rolls to be a little too sweet for my taste. Next time I will reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. Thank you these will be great with our turkey dinner. Read More

I used half scalded milk and half buttermilk. The only other change I made was using 4 cups of Whole wheat flour and about the same amount of regular flour...the dough was pretty sticky so I had to add more flour. Excellent taste- my husband looked at the color said Pumpkin huh? But he had seconds!! Read More

I don't make bread a lot but I love all things pumpkin and simply had to try this. It was super easy to follow and also tasted incredible. I added in some cinnamon though to compliment the pumpkin. I'm definitely gonna make this again. Thanks for the awesome recipe:) Read More
