The countdown to Thanksgiving is ON! It is around this time every year that I realize just how much I love everything about food. Cooking it, planning for it, shopping for it, staring at it, and eating it. I have a gigantic turkey in my freezer that I will be pulling out soon to cook (to get ahead). Read how I cook my Thanksgiving turkey here.
The One Hour Whole Wheat Yeast Rolls (pictured above) might be a great addition to your Thanksgiving meal. Even if you’ve never made yeast rolls before, even if you’ve made them before and not had success – you will find this recipe so easy! In fact, we had a college student over last week who had never made rolls before. I handed her this recipe, and she turned out perfect rolls – her first try!

Are you getting excited about Thanksgiving? Do you have big plans?
I would be much more excited of someone else was doing the cooking! I did a double batch of rolls yesterday and double wrapped them and stashed them in the freezer so all I have to do is reheat. One thing checked off the list.
