Re the bake time. Yes, I would think they would increase the baking time

Amazon has them. Check with Amazon.com/UK to see if you have them there.

After yesterday's overwhelming reception to salt and pepper's Cast Iron Rolls, I have another recipe of them in the works this morning. With any luck these will make it to the freezer. However, being a realist, I might have to make more tomorrow to achieve that goal.

Doing lots of food prep today. We are having company for dinner the next two nights. The bread machine is baking a loaf of French bread and I made a key lime pie. In order to increase the odds the pie will be around for Monday and Tue's suppers, I also baked some brownies

Have a batch of Cast Iron Rolls on their first rise. We'll have them with our pot roast tonight.

I woke up this morning realizing my house was a dessert-free zone, so I just baked a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies.

I have a pan of Paula Deen's Orange Brownies in the oven. They're so moist and delicious! Must be those two sticks of butter! Time to go make the glaze.

I made some biscuits this morning. Day before yesterday a friend brought me a pint of her, still warm, freshly made reduced sugar strawberry preserves. I had to make something to go with finishing them off, so I baked biscuits. Everything was delightful.

Although tempted to turn the A/C on last night, we soldiered through and went with the ceiling fans. That way I didn't feel too guilty turning the toaster oven on. I baked up a Pillsbury cranberry quick bread with added walnuts. Bonus! The bread pan fits in, but my 6-muffin tin doesn't. It turned out fine. I think I'll do this every week or two to get rid of my over-stocking of quick bread mixes.
