My mother cooked and baked many things growing up, but bread and rolls were never her forte. When I got married I quickly learned that my mother in law was great at baking biscuits and homemade rolls. Her rolls are so good that people request them every holiday and get together. After a couple of years of marriage my mother in law was kind enough to lend me her recipe. To me the roll recipe spells family, which is something that is very important to me. Cooking and baking have always been apart of my favorite everyday memories and something that I have passed down to my kids.
Right now Welch's wants to share "in the magic of 'kitchen table' moments." They want to emphasis those little moments such as baking my mother in law's rolls that happen throughout the day. They have launched a new movement called "Share What's Good". At Sharewhatsgood.com you’ll find a variety of great content from fun family ideas to delicious recipes. You can also share your photos and see what other people have posted. I have included my mother's in-laws recipe below and two photos of my "Share What's Good" moments.

|My Share What's Good Moment - Walking with My Kids in Ritter Park|
In addition to cooking my family enjoys spending time at our local parks, especially during the summer. Often I will cook dinner (with sides such as my mother-in-law's rolls) and then once the temps cool down we will go for a walk. This is a picture that I took while talking a family walk at Ritter Park. I love talking walks with my family since we can enjoy spending time with each other while ensuring that we all stay healthy. It's a great way to spend quality active time on the weekends.
As mother of two growing boys I love capturing memories with my camera. Right now you can a $50 photo gift card towards a popular Online Photo Service where they can share their own moment through Photo Books, Cards & Stationery, Prints, Calendars, Photo Gifts and more.
