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}

Ingredients:


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

Directions:


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.

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

Ingredients:


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

Directions:


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

Ingredients:


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!

Directions:


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.

Pizza Dippers



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.

Chicken Twist



Our dear friend, Sara, made this for both of us at a lunch 6 years ago and it's something that we both still remember.  It's just that good.  We adapted it slightly here by using a different kind of dough, but we were both so happy with how it turned out!  

Our kids loved it and it was a refreshing change to add into our dinner rotation.  Chicken, cheese, red bell pepper, and seasonings get stuffed into a Rhodes loaf and baked until golden.  

We're sharing the recipe here today

No-Bake Mini Samoa Cheesecakes


Cheesecake is definitely a favorite dessert for both of us as is evident here, here, here, and here...and a few other places.  

I don't know we could narrow it down to a single favorite, but this one is pretty near the top of the list.  It comes together fast, can be made ahead of time, is perfectly portioned so you can pull just what you need out of the freezer, and it's perfect for the warmer months because it is no-bake.  

There is nothing that is not to love about this coconut-y, caramel-y, chocolaty, bit of heaven!

Rustic Homemade Hashbrowns


We seriously have breakfast for dinner once a week. Why? Because is't easy, we always have stuff on hand, and nobody in the house complains.....no whining, only eating!

But sometimes I like to go a little beyond pancakes and waffles with eggs.  And have an extra side.....hashbrowns.  These little gems are a family favorite. And my girls wouldn't touch potatoes until recently - and I told them these tasted just like french fries and that was enough to get them to try them.  My cute 3 year old said...."Mom, I can't stop eating these!"  If there are any words I love to hear it's when they enjoy something that I spent time making for them!

These are simple to whip up and make the perfect side to your breakfast/brinner meal!

Lightened-up Beef Stroganoff


We love stroganoff at both of our houses! It's been a classic comfort food since we were kids!  In case you haven't had anything but the boxed version - no worries. This can be made in 20 minutes. Choose ground beef or sliced round steak - mix a few pantry staples together and wa-lah! Dinner is served.  Our kids love it too, and when there are no complaints at dinner - all is well!
