Holiday baking is one of my very favorite things.  When Red Star Yeast asked if I would like to bake up some holiday goodies, of course I jumped at the chance!  Plus they are working this holiday season to support Stop Hunger Now!


A few facts about Stop Hunger Now

  • Stop Hunger Now meals contain 23 essential vitamins and minerals, each feeds 6 people.
  • In 2013, roughly 125,000 volunteers worldwide packaged more than 42 million meals for recipients in 30 countries.
  • In 2013, Stop Hunger Now sent more than $9 million worth of donated goods (including antibiotics, birthing kits, water filters, school desks, projectors, fabric and solar lights)
  • Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year.
  • One in every eight people on earth goes to bed hungry each night.
  • Nearly one billion people worldwide suffer from chronic hunger.
  • Every day, more than 25,000 people die abroad of hunger and hunger-related causes.
  • Every 10 seconds a child dies because they are severely underweight or lack essential nutrients.
  • 842 million people in the world do not have enough to eat. 

I love that Stop Hunger Now focuses on engaging volunteers in a hands-on activity to produce meals that are used strategically to support development programs, while at the same time fostering the growth of a movement to end hunger by educating those volunteers about the need and giving them an opportunity to take action.

So in support of this effort this holiday season I will be baking double batches to share.  Isn’t that what it’s all about?

A while back, I tried my hand at making savory brioche rolls and they turned out so fabulous that I had to try a sweet roll version.  The beauty of this recipe is that it will make enough to enjoy and share!  Who wouldn’t love to have a pan of fresh baked sweet rolls from their neighbor?
