  1. Frozen white dinner rolls would work as well, Karen. My SIL made this for a large group of family and friends one year and she put all the dinner rolls with the corn syrup, butter, brown sugar, pecans and raisins into a bundt pan and baked them that way. They came out lovely and it wasn’t a lot of work. But these sound heavenly, too. I’m looking for other recipes on the right side but don’t see them. Perhaps salads or soups for the Christmas season coming up, for those of us who are watching our weight? I’m anxious to see what you’ve posted. What a good cook!!!

    1. Good morning, Kenna. I’m sure that would work as well, and even LESS work! LOL I’ve reached the age when “not a lot of work” means something to me. 🙂 I had a notion of catering for a while but happy with the career path I’ve chosen instead.

      The menu on the right is down the column a little and is divided by recipe types. **Author Special** is all of the recipes shared by other others, but I also tried to share their recipes in the other recipe types. Have fun searching the recipes!
