Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1/4 c. rapid-rise yeast
2-1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. sugar (1/4 c. honey could replace sugar)
1/4 c. oil (1 stick melted butter could replace oil)
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. dry milk
7 to 8 c. all-purpose flour (either white flour or half and half white with wheat flour)

Directions:
Directions:
In large bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water along with either the sugar OR honey. Let bubble. Add either the melted butter OR oil, salt and dry milk. Mix well. Start adding flour 1 cup at a time. Work into a firm ball by hand until you can take it out and knead. Knead on floured counter until smooth texture. Lightly oil large bowl and replace dough in bowl, roll once in bowl so dough covered in oil. Cover bowl with damp towel. Let rise until doubled. Make dough into whatever shape you want - loaves, rolls. To make roll, pinch off golf ball-sized piece of dough. Place on greased pan. Keep 1 fingerwidth between rolls, so they can rise while baking. Bake at 350 on middle rack for approximately 20 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Using this increased amount of rapid-rise yeast (from what the jar says to use) speeds up the process of rising and doesn't effect the taste or texture. The warmer your kitchen is also speeds up the rising process.
