Please go to Shan's place for more What's Cooking Wednesday participants.
On the Long and Short Reviews site, they have wonderful recipes every Friday under the "Fun Stuff" button. A few Fridays ago, Judy Thomas posted a recipe for "Mother's Miracle Bread". I will have a link to the original recipe as soon as I hear from Judy. You can find Judy herself at My World of Dreams.

Judy Thomas's "Mother's Miracle Bread," Revised
1 cup water (110 degrees F)
2 packages of yeast
5 TBS butter, melted
3 TBS olive oil
1/3 cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1. Combine water and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for five minutes. With a wooden spoon, stir in butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Add flour, one cup at a time, and beat in all you can (you should be able to use all the flour). In the last stages, mix the dough with your hands to get those last bits of flour in.
2. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours, or up to three days.
3. When you get ready to use the dough, grease your baking pan. (I used some cooking spray in a 9X13 pan). Divide the dough into 4 pieces, and then into 6 rolls (rolling them into smooth, round balls) from each of the 4 pieces. Space evenly in the pan, like this:
4. Cover and let rise for at least 2 hours, or until doubled in size and they've melded together like this:
5. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake rolls until golden brown, about 17 minutes.
Number of Servings: 24
