  6. To fry, heat an oil bath in a small pot over medium heat. Test the temperature by adding a roll in oil; if it sizzles, it should be ready, if it doesn’t, heat it for longer.
  7. Fry each roll, for 3 or 4 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Rest on a cooling rack.

I speak 5 languages, but my favorite way to communicate is through the universal language of food. I translate food to be more approachable and accessible for the everyday cook. I didn't grow up with a lot, so I’ve always loved thrifting and finding a good sale. That also shapes my approach to cooking: I try to make most of my recipes as affordable as possible, and that is what my SCRAPS newsletter is about.
