Glitter and boots. The highs and lows of my weekend. More specifically… After Carrie shared a photo of her new boots I immediately had to have them. Or at the very least try them on to make sure they were indeed everything I’ve been searching for. I’ve been hunting high and low looking for the perfect nearly flat boots. They’re incredible, comfy and gorgeous. In. Love.

Now, I love glitter and sparkles as much as the next girl but not so much when it’s stuck in the grout between my kitchen tiles. This, thanks to my oldest who was crafting and clearly made a huge mess. I may just have to embrace a sparkly kitchen. Please tell me some people pay big money for that look. Maybe it’ll help ease the frustration.

I’m sure you have your Thanksgiving menu mostly set. But stop everything that you’re doing, put that menu on hold and add these Amish potato rolls to the list. They are quite possibly the best rolls I’ve ever made. Ever. They remind me of those rolls you can buy in a package and just pop in your oven.

They’re so soft and fluffy. You’ll want to slather them in butter and eat one after another (which just might be how they disappeared here – no, seriously… every person in my family was obsessed). They’re irresistible and totally delicious. I promise they’ll be a hit of any dinner you serve them at. In addition to their incredible texture and flavor, these rolls are truly easy to make. Get the kids in the kitchen and help you out! They’ll have a blast and will be proud they helped out with such a special part of the meal.

Make these Amish potato rolls, you’ll be glad you did! They’re a new family favorite for us and may be for you too!
