    I have been Lucky Enough! to enjoy many of these wonderful recipes … the maple glazed cinnamon buns are to die for. And the bean soup – made myself a big batch as soon as I saw this recipe and it was dynamite. Best pal Rita has provided Julie’s wonderful yeast dinner rolls on several occasions … a batch coming our way for this New Year’s weekend celebration! Keep up the good work, Julie. You’re a gifted baker – in addition to being a wonderful Mom, wife and friend!
