Sides are just as important as the meal itself; especially when bread and margaritas are involved! These Parmesan Dinner Rolls are easy to make and will definitely hold your guests over until you serve the main course, or give you something simple to bring along to a friend’s barbecue (just make sure to give yourself time for the dough to rise!). We also found a refreshing peach margarita recipe that is one-of-a-kind and sure to delight; try both of these recipes for your next summertime event!
