marj cook greenKENTUCKY (4/5/12) - Although I had “visited” two other sub-divisions before I found the beautiful new home of Linda and Monte Robinson, it was well worth the drive. (A friend of mine describes such drives as exploring, rather than getting lost.) Situated amid rolling hills, the house overlooks many other new homes, all well maintained.
Once inside, I wondered how anyone could ever mess up this show place with such mundane activities as cooking. The open floor plan with living room, dining room and kitchen was interrupted with only a single column supporting the ceiling. New furniture spaced around the gas log fireplace and an entertainment wall of books and television was very attractive, but it was the kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances that caught my attention. We settled around the breakfast table, one of the few pieces of furniture the Robinsons moved from their Kentucky Avenue home.
Although they had once lived within shouting distance of First United Methodist Church, both Linda and Monte are still deeply involved in the church activities. Linda is co-chairman of JOY, the group of senior citizens in the church, sings in the choir, helps with the archives, and assists the preparation of the monthly communion service. Linda and Monte are retired; Linda taught school and Monte worked at Madisonville Tire. Their son, Don, still works at the tire company; another son, David, lives at home and daughter Amy is in Louisville, the mother of two of their three grandchildren. The three grandchildren were the inspiration for Linda to publish a book, “Dear Grandchildren, When You Come To Visit”. Her recipe for Dinner Rolls will inspire the readers to cook. (They are delicious!)
ROBINSON cookingIngredients
¾ cup boiling water
½ cup sugar
3 Tbs butter
1 tsp salt
2 pkg. dry yeast (NOT Rapid Rise)
1 cup warm water
1 beaten egg
5 cups flour
Pour boiling water over sugar, butter, and salt in large bowl. Let cool completely. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl. Mix above together, add beaten egg. Stir in 3 cups flour very gradually. Add remainder of flour. Butter hands and knead slightly. Put dough in large buttered bowl and turn. Let dough rise in warm place about 2 hours or until double in size. Make into rolls and let rise again—about 20 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees until brown—8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with butter. Preparation Time: 3 ½ hours. Makes about 24 rolls.
