One time I made dinner rolls for dinner. Six in total, one for me, one for DS and 4 for DH. Well, DS wasn't ready for dinner. (DH works nights so we normally eat before DS wakes up from his nap). Anyway, while I was washing the dishes. DH ate all FIVE dinner, including the one that was suppose to be for our son. Goodness, i was sooo pissed. Like really man you needed FIVE dinner rolls? You couldn't even think of our son?!

I have a family recipe I use and love. It seems rare for anyone to make their own rolls.
