Garlic & Herb Bubble Bread

One of our favorite things about Winter is eating soup!  It's so warm and cozy and full of goodness.  When eating soup at our houses, bread isn't really optional and this Garlic and Herb bubble bread is the perfect companion to a bowl of soup.  

It's a cinch to throw together and our families loved it!  Start by thawing about 20 Rhodes rolls. 

Mix some minced garlic and Italian seasoning into melted butter.
Cut each Rhodes roll in half and dip into the butter mixture.  Place in baking dish.  Cover and let rise.  

Bake until puffy and golden brown.  

Pull apart and dig in!  If you're looking for something extra special, you could stuff each half of roll with a small cube of mozzarella cheese and have a delicious cheesy bread! Enjoy!

Rhodes Garlic & Herb Bubble Bread

20 Rhodes dinner rolls
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
⅓ cup butter, melted
¾ teaspoon italian seasoning
½ cup parmesan cheese, optional


Let rolls thaw according to directions on package.  Lightly grease a 9x9 pan.  Combine butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl.  

Cut each roll in half, dip into the butter mixture, and drop into greased pan.  Repeat with all halves.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top, if desired.  

Let rise until doubled (45 minutes to 1 hour).  Bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown on top and internal temperature is 200.

Pani Popo (Samoan Coconut Rolls)

We recently discovered a super simple way to make Rhodes rolls extra special for a holiday dinner or something.  It only takes 2 additional ingredients and about 30 extra seconds. 

These Rhodes rolls are risen and then covered in a mixture of coconut milk and sugar and baked to sweet perfection!  They are delicious warm or cooled and would make a great addition to a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner spread.  

They are a super simple way to fancy up your rolls!  Give them a try and let us know what you think.  They will be appearing on our Thanksgiving dinner table tomorrow.

We can't speak from an authenticity standpoint, as we have never tried authentic pani popo, but we can guarantee that these are delicious!  Give them a try and let us know what you think!

Pani Popo {Samoan Coconut Rolls}


18 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls
14 ounce can coconut cream or milk
1/2 cup sugar


Place frozen rolls in 3 rows of 6 in a sprayed 9x13-inch baking dish. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let thaw and rise until double in size.

Combine coconut cream and sugar and mix well.

Remove wrap from risen rolls and pour coconut cream mixture over the rolls (try to coat each roll completely as you pour so they will have a consistent color as they bake.)

Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes. You made need to place a piece of foil gently over the top to prevent them from browning too much.  Just keep an eye on them as they cook.

Note: Coconut cream mixture will thicken as the rolls cool.

Whipped Sweet Potatoes

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we are beginning to plan our menu and call dibs on the dishes we want to bring.  Besides being with family, these sweet potatoes are one of the best things about Thanksgiving.  The canned sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows don’t really speak to me, but these whipped sweet potatoes are a whole different story.

A few reasons why these are my favorite thing to bring to Thanksgiving dinner–1) they taste darn good! 2) they are so easy to make, and 3) they can be made several days in advance.  I’ve made them a couple of days before and covered them with plastic wrap and refrigerated them until ready to bake and they tasted just as great as baking them the same day.  Make-ahead Thanksgiving dishes are especially nice if you’re traveling and want to do the prep and make the mess in your kitchen rather than someone else’s.

Quick Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

We love serving rolls or bread with our dinner! And especially during soup season! Usually yeast breads require several hours of advanced planning, which isn’t always something we have time to do on a busy weeknight.  These quick dinner rolls cut out the first rise on the dough and are ready in under an hour. And they are whole wheat! Healthy, soft and quick!  It's a winner!

Lemon Garlic-Herb Chicken

This chicken is the perfect go-to meal when the fridge is nearing empty and a grocery run won't happen before dinnertime.  If you're like us, chances are you'll have everything on hand to make this mouth-watering chicken.  Mix up the marinade while you defrost the chicken, let it hang out in the marinade for 30 minutes, then grill or bake it and dinner is served.  Don't forget some Rhodes Warm N Serv Rolls to Complete The Meal.  They have saved us so many times at dinner when we just need something else to round out the meal.  No rising, no waiting--they're already cooked and just need to be warmed in the oven or the microwave and they are good to go!

The regular ones are awesome, but the Artisan French Rolls are our favorites! Grab a bag on the frozen foods aisle next to the regular Rhodes rolls next time you're shopping.  They make fantastic slider buns, too!

Lemon Garlic-Herb Chicken


1½ - 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

For the marinade:
4 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
4 cloves garlic
1/2 lemon zested and juiced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon basil


Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise to create thinner cutlets. In a mixing bowl or shallow container, whisk together all the marinade ingredients.  Add chicken breast cutlets to marinade and let sit at room temperature for 30 mins.  Grill for 5-8 minutes per side or until juices run clear or bake (on a lightly greased baking sheet) at 375 for 25-30 minutes, or until internal temp reaches 165. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing or serving.

Apple Slice Doughnut Snack

Fall time brings a lot of treats, sweets and goodies! I know I'm always left looking for something nutritious and healthy - and this little "treat" was just fun and cute, so my kids thought it really was a treat - but it was more of a healthy snack. So I called it a win-win!  We call these Apple Slice Doughnuts!

No promises that they taste like an actual doughnut, but we like to call these doughnuts anyway.  The kids love being able to customize their own.  We like to switch it up and use different nut butters as well--or even nutella or cookie butter if it's for dessert.  

These work great for a mid-day pick-me-up or an after-school snack!

It's more of an idea than a recipe, but here is an actual recipe if you feel you need it ;)

Apple Slice Doughnut Snack


1 apple, cored and sliced into rounds
Nut butter for spreading
Toppings: Chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, sprinkles, shredded coconut, raisins, chopped nuts, poppy seeds, or anything else you love!


Spread apple slices with nut butter and top as desired. You can also put your nut butter in a plastic ziplock bag and snip the end to squirt it on the apple. It's sometimes tricky to spread a sticky butter on a juicy apple! :)  Serve immediately.

We love having pizza night a few times a month. These were a fun way to mix things up - and were super easy to make with Rhodes Warm-N-Serve rolls.  Those have been a life saver on nights when it's hard to find time to make anything.  I like keeping a bag or two in the freezer just for that.
