Soft Dinner Rolls

This is one of the best roll recipes I have found.
1/2 c sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons yeast
2 1/2 C flour
Combine in a bowl
2 c milk
1/2 c butter
Place in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted and hot (about 2 minutes). Stir into the dry ingredients.
Add 2 beaten eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in about 4 more cups of flour, one at a time. Dough will be sticky.
Turn onto floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.
Cover loosely and let rise until doubled- about 1 hour.
Shape into balls (golf ball size) and drop onto a greased cookie sheet.
Let rise 1/2 to 1 hour.
Cook at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
*I used half whole wheat in this recipe and added an extra half teaspoon of salt and they turned out great.

Corn Chowder- Slow Cooker Recipe

Corn Chowder- Slow Cooker Style

Corn Chowder
5 medium potatoes, skin on and cubed
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pint half and half
1/2 c milk
1/2 pkg bacon, cooked & crumbled
1 onion, chopped and sauted
2 cloves minced garlic
1 can creamed corn
1 c grated cheddar cheese
salt & pepper to taste
Throw it all in a crockpot. Cook on low for about 4 hours or high for about 2 hours just until potatoes are tender.
*Instead of the half and half, I used 2 cups milk and 3 T butter. The soup was a bit lighter.
