"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Pam Kohel


1 cup milk (luke warm)
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 pkgs yeast
5 1/2 to 6 cups flour
1 stick margarine, melted

Mix the yeast with a little of the sugar and warm water to start it growing.

Mix in large mixing bowl milk, water, oil, eggs, sugar, salt, and yeast mixture. Then add flour and kneed in bowl until mixed well. Will be slightly sticky. Cover dough with oil and cover and let set until it doubles.

Roll into dinner rolls or make into cinnamon rolls and with pastry brush top rolls with melted margarine and let rise. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until brown. When removed from the ove brush again with melted margarine.

I use this for Kolaches also. When doing kolache roll small balls about the size of a walnut. Place on pan and brush with melted margarine to prevent drying out. Let rise and then press down the center to make well for filling and allow to rise again. When raised again, in about 20 minutes, press down again and fill with filling. Let it raise again about 20 minutes and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until just starting to brown. Brush again with melted margarine.

We like the cream cheese filling. This is 8 ounces of softened cream cheese with about 1 cup powdered sugar mixed together.
