With freezing rain all day Saturday, it was a good day to stay in and do some baking. Made some sweet rolls (extra raisins for Thorny Guy) using my Grandma's recipe. They are YUMMY! Also made a loave of wheat bread. I am still trying to figure out our new oven. As you can see the top got a little dark on the loave. The "proof" mode was great for letting the bread rise though.
