I have fast rise active dry yeast. My recipe calls for regular active dry yeast. (Making rolls) Can I substitute the fast rise for the regular?

Yes, you can substitute -- just keep in mind the rise on your rolls may be slightly less. Also, you can add the rapid-rise yeast to the dry ingredients, rather than dissolving it in lukewarm water first.
