Jane's Story

This is my most frequently asked for bread.
This also comes from the Book Bread Machine Magic.
Feel free to change the herbs around a little, I always add more rosemary because I love it, and I have a pot growing outside


1/2 c
1/2 c
sour cream
3 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
1 1/2 Tbsp
3 Tbsp
1 1/2 tsp
active dry yeast
herb butter to roll bread balls in:
4 Tbsp
melted butter
2 clove
garlic, minced
1/4 tsp
each oregano, dill
1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Put all bread ingredients in bread pan in the order given. Cut butter into 4 chunks and deposit in each corner.
Turn bread machine on, and it will beep when dough is complete, my bread machine this is exactly one hour.
Turn dough on a floured surface. Gently roll and stretch dough into a 24 inch rope.
In a small bowl combine the melted butter, garlic, and herbs.
With a sharp knife, divide the dough into 40 sections. The easiest way is to divide in half, that in half, and so on. I use a yard stick for this.
Roll each piece in a ball, dip in butter and place in a bundt pan, butter side down.
Cover and allow to rise double in size. I turn oven on low 2 minutes, turn it off, then put dough in to rise.
Heat oven to 375 degrees if your bread is still in oven, just leave it in. bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

My sister in law Donna just lost her sister to colon cancer, and she was just 30. I think the guideline now is 50 for that test.
She had no symptoms either until she was in stage 4. If It was up to me everyone would have screening earlier.
Cancer doesn't always run in families, no one is immune.

Yea Jane so happy for you! I had my first mammogram at 26 and the nurses were laughing at me. I wanted to slap them because it was doctors orders.......I have never had kids, and there are some issues with that too, so I am watching that. Also had my first colonoscopy at 38. They too laughed at me. This was way before all the Hippa stuff. I should have sued them. But I am not like that.
