I tried Miss Mary Loyd's dinner rolls with butter. Fantastic! Tender, rose very nicely, baked beautifully. Very tender on the inside with a nice brown crust. Loved this recipe
TheWimpyVegetarian December 24, 2010
I would love to try the Rosemary Lemon Rolls. They look delicious!
TheWimpyVegetarian December 24, 2010
I meant test them, not just try them :-)
Sagegreen December 24, 2010
Thanks, ChezSuzanne, for testing these. I hope you like them. Suggestions welcome. I am making a golden challah for tonight which I hope will be lovely.
TheWimpyVegetarian December 24, 2010
It's all my pleasure!! You had such fortitude in developing this recipe (LOVE the story), they HAVE to be tested!! And honestly I just love the rosemary and lemon flavor in bread - so I'm sure I'll love them. I've not made challah before, and want to take that on as my next bread project. I'd love to hear how it goes! Happy Holidays!
AntoniaJames December 24, 2010
I'm happy to test two different recipes (I have already signed up for the Whole-grain Olive Oil Rolls), if not all have been claimed . . . . Both boys are home now, and they are both crazy about rolls!! ;o)
Food52 December 24, 2010
Thanks AJ -- take your pick! Rosemary Lemon Rolls, Ode to Ocelene's Rolls, Quick and Easy Dinner Rolls?
AntoniaJames December 25, 2010
I'll try to Ode to Ocelene's, today (Christmas). I know they'll be great!! ;o)
Table9 December 26, 2010
Thanks so much AJ! I hope you love the rolls...cannot wait to get tips for my recipe from that wonderful dough expert mind of yours. Happy Holidays!
AntoniaJames December 26, 2010
I'll be testing soozl's Easy Dinner Rolls, too. (I can't get an ingredient I need for the olive oil rolls until tomorrow, and need to bake again today anyway to feed the two bottomless pits who are home from college . . . so this will work out very well.) Thanks!!
Lori L. December 24, 2010
How can anyone pass up Miss Mary Lloyds? The name alone conjures up images of a proper southern supper. I'll try them today.
Food52 December 24, 2010
Thanks lori! MrsWheelbarrow already snagged those for official testing purposes, but please feel free to leave your notes in the recipe's comments section if you do make them. These recipes still need testers: Rosemary Lemon Rolls, Ode to Ocelene's Rolls, Quick and Easy Dinner Rolls
Lori L. December 26, 2010
Oh, I'm bummed. I didn't see this in time to try another roll. I'll add my comments to the recipe itself.
gingerroot December 24, 2010
Late to this today (already Christmas eve for most!) but I would love to test My Grandmother's Parker House Rolls. Thanks and Happy Holidays to all!
TiggyBee December 25, 2010

Miss Mary Lloyd's Dinner Rolls?

Crusty Dinner Rolls, please!
lapadia December 23, 2010
Hi wssmom! FYI…just made your recipe (delicious), posted a picture on your cook page (pic #2) and will get my review in by deadline. BTW, baking bread is and excellent way to spend time in the kitchen…for me, anyway. Today is my BD, and the 2 almost 3 hours spent baking and testing these enhanced an already wonderful day – now it’s off to the next adventure! Happy Holiday to you and everybody on Food52.
mrslarkin December 23, 2010
Happy Festivus, I mean Happy Birthday, lapadia!! ;-)
