    This may be a really dumb question but I want to make these tonight. With the pudding do I let it sit and get firm and then add all the stuff to it or do I just add the liquid to it?

    • Mel says:

      Hi Amy – you don’t need to let the pudding set up. Just add the milk to the pudding, mix well, and then proceed with the recipe adding in the other ingredients.

    Where do you find white whole wheat to grind? I have never even heard of that.

    Do you make sourdough bread? I have made some and the first couple batches turn out fabulous! But I like to taste a bit more “soured”. Every time I leave me starter out (and follow the recipe I have) it won’t work anymore! Was wondering if you had any tips to keep the starter going or if you maybe had another great recipe up your sleeve!

    I just happened upon your blog! I LOVE it! Thanks for sharing!!!

    Where are the Lion House rolls? How’d they not make the Best Of cut?!

    Hi Mel,

    I see someone asked this above, but it was a couple years ago and I don’t see the answer (or a recipe for this)…

    Do you have a good recipe for “Sourdough Baguettes”? Or any “Sourdough” bread recipes? I really want to make some homemade, but have not had any luck finding a good recipe so far. If you could help that’d be great!

    I make your “Sweet and Sour Chicken” recipe at least once a week, my family tells me it’s the best chicken they’ve ever eaten and I agree. I love Chinese food, but it’s so expensive to buy for a large family, I’ve tried making this type of chicken in the past but it never turned out as good as the restaurants…until NOW. 😀

    It looks like you have so many other good recipes here, I want to try them all, (made the lemon bars last night and they were a big hit as well).

    Thank you so much!

      Hi Grace – glad you love the sweet and sour chicken! In answer to your question, I don’t have any great sourdough starter or bread recipes to share as I haven’t really experimented with that style yet. Good luck on your search!

    Thanks, Mel.

    I’m heading to the library to find a bread making book. : ) If I find a recipe worthy of your site maybe I’ll come back and share it.

    Did the vanilla pudding cinnamon rolls get replaced by the buttermilk cinnamon rolls? I thought they were in the “Best Of” section but don’t see them now.

  8. Jody says:

    Thanks for your reply! I thought those were your favorites. So, does that mean the buttermilk rolls and Gloria’s rolls are even better? Now I have to try them! Do you have a favorite between the two?

    • Mel says:

      Hi Jody – I really love all three recipes but if you pinned me down, I’d say Gloria’s recipe is my favorite right now.

  9. Jody says:

    Great, thanks for replying! I clearly take my cinnamon rolls seriously. 🙂 I’m excited to try out Gloria’s recipe!
