I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the 5 love languages. I’m not quite sure I could name all of them myself but I believe the idea behind them is that each of us gives and receives love in different forms and to do the best job at loving our spouse we need to speak their love language.
I probably just totally butchered that.
I have never read about the love languages.
Regardless, my love language is food. And I know for a fact that the book does not list that as a language of love. Whatever. Food is love to me.
Even if your love of food does not reach the same epic proportions as mine does (I’m only slightly jealous of you), I’m guessing that we all have a food that will take us back to a certain memory.
The one thing in my brain that I remember always looking forward to, no matter what the holiday, were my grandma’s whole wheat crescent rolls. I don’t believe that my love of them reached the same level as that of my brothers (I don’t even want to know how many they would consume per meal), but they are still simply amazing.
I nearly forgot about them as I was looking up recipes for dinner rolls for Thanksgiving and then I remembered. And why would I want to make anything else? They are slightly sweet and light and the perfect roll to go with any meal. I guarantee you will love them! I’ve already made and frozen 2 batches of them for Thanksgiving dinner so all I have to do the morning of is warm them up.
Make sure you choose a day you are around your house to make them, because while the hands on time is short, there are multiple steps where the dough as to rise. Don’t let this keep you from making them! I have even skipped the second rise step (just letting the dough rise once, forming them into crescents and letting them rise again) and they turned out wonderfully. However, I refused to change the recipe because Grandma always knows best!
Can’t hardly wait!

My husband enjoys a cool house, so I place a bowl of hot water in the bottom of my oven and place my dough in the oven in a separate bowl covered with a damp cloth. I learned this trick from my grandma and it works like a charm!
