Wendy C, who said: “I would love to win this cook book. My son loves Rhodes bread rolls.” Congratulations, Wendy C.!!! Please send me your address and I will get the cookbook on it’s way to you! Just to let everyone else know, I do a guest post with Rhodes about every 8 weeks, so before you know it, there will be another giveaway…that’s before I know it as well! Funny how things like this have a way of sneaking up on you! If you missed it, you can visit the post for Bacon Cheese Nibbles here!
UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF THIS POST! Yes, I know…it’s that time again! This is one of my favorite posts to do because making delicious recipes with Rhodes is as easy as 1…thaw, 2…cut and dip, and 3…top, rest (both the dough and me) and bake! On a cold, rainy day, the aroma of bacon, cheese and bread filled the whole house as the boys bounded in, hungry from school and work! Yet another delectable addiction…I mean addition…to our family’s Rhodes repertoire! You can read all the details over at the Official Rhodes Blog. But before you go, I want you to know that I’m having a special cookbook give-away this post, courtesy of Rhodes. This is a really fun cookbook – either if you have kids or you want to wow your guests/co-workers/friends with your amazing artistic abilities.

Our family seems to be on the go a lot lately and not everyone seems to be home at the same time to eat dinner together. There are occasions when a grab-and-go meal comes in handy. We would often take advantage of the freezer-to-microwave foods, but these freshly prepared, meals in a bun are wonderful when right out of the oven and just as good when reheated. To make these hot pockets of chili cheese roll yumminess, you will need a package of either Rhodes Dinner Rolls or Rhodes Texas Rolls. In addition, you will need: 1 – 15 ounce can thick chili (take it out of the can and stir it up); 8 ounces cheddar cheese (I used white cheddar), cut into 12 cubes; non-stick cooking spray, toothpicks and a 12-count muffin pan. Pretty easy, right? Spray the cookie sheet with a non-stick cooking spray; place the frozen rolls on the cookie sheet, and then cover with sprayed plastic wrap. My little trick to do this is to put the plastic wrap over the rolls on the pan, then spray the top of wrap, then take the plastic wrap and flip it over, covering the rolls with the now sprayed plastic. It is easier to see exactly how large an area it is that needs to be sprayed. Let the rolls thaw until they are room temperature. Mine actually started rising before I caught them, but they
and it’s almost ready to come out! Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and I am practicing! Not that I don’t know how to make bread, but as anyone who does the whole 9 yards knows, with all the other food preparations that you do on that busy day (and in my kitchen, lack of space in both oven and counter), trying to bake bread from scratch can be an overwhelming addition to the meal. I’m sure that most of you need no introduction, but if you aren’t familiar, welcome to the wonderful world of Rhodes Bread! I wanted to try out some of the different techniques that I discovered on the Rhodes website and it is a good idea to play around with that sort of thing BEFORE company is scheduled to arrive so there are no surprises! Besides, my family never seems to mind the taste testing! There’s nothing I like more than a good deal…except for a really good deal! Okay, even better – an almost free or FREE deal! The only thing I like better than getting a good deal for myself is to pass the good fortune on to others. Part of my game plan for doing a blog was to eventually have giveaways. I have been trying to get used to the routine of blogging before I started pushing the “free” button, but my end goal is to drive
