Pumpkin Swirl Loaf

Fall is most definitely upon us. While I welcome the cooler weather… and sweatshirts… and hot cocoa… and PUMPKIN…. I’m always sad to give up summer days with my kids. If I can’t have my kids home, at least I can have apple cider and pumpkin treats. Pumpkin treats are some of my very favorites. What about you? This Pumpkin swirl loaf is pretty tasty. I liked it toasted with my favorite cinnamon honey butter slathered over the top, BUT I could be convinced to glaze it with icing just like cinnamon rolls too. In fact, next time I make this, I think that’s just what I’m going to do!  Continue reading

Warm Delicious Rolls Baked in Under 10 Minutes

fast easy delicious rolls

You guys, I’m so excited to tell you about these delicious rolls! They have seriously become my little secret weapon – no joke!!! They taste amazing and take only minutes – like under 10…. maybe 8. And if you really want to push it, you can microwave them in less than a minute. That’s it, 30 seconds. Would you like to know how? #Rhodesbread new Warm-N-Serv Rolls.

Let’s talk about some of the reasons I love these!

1) Taste. Let’s just get this one out of the way… these taste amazing. Actually, I’m not sure if I ever want to mix, knead, rise, and bake rolls ever again. Like seriously, what’s the point?

2) Convenience. These are super easy to prepare. They take under 10 minutes (like 8) in the oven and under a minute in the microwave. 

3) Meals. These are the perfect way to complete a meal. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve struggled just to get something in the crock pot or made so that we have something on the table to eat when dinner rolls around. Thinking about the little extra sides completely escapes me. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve got nothing. Notta. Zilch. Now that I know about these rolls, I love that I can pull them out of the freezer and serve them with seriously no effort what so ever (as long as I remember to put them on my shopping list). While I’m in the freezer section if I can remember to stock up on frozen veggies, I actually can make it look like I’ve got my act together – well sort of any ways. Now don’t get me wrong – even though these are my go to when time is short – the taste and presentation is good enough that I  won’t hold back for more special meals like Christmas or Thanksgiving…… I’ll totally be serving these!

3) Snacks. The first place my kids go when they get home after school is the kitchen. Most of the time they are beyond starving and need something fast!!!! Hangry kids are never ever good. One of their favorite snacks is little sandwiches they make with these rolls! They pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds, add a little of their favorite meat, cheese, and condiments or even some PB and jelly and are good to go! I love that it’s not junk food. 

4. Treats. I’m not sure about you, but I love cinnamon honey butter. Sometimes in the mid afternoon I need a little somethin’ somethin’ to get me through the day. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that you could catch me warming a roll into the microwave and slathering it with my favorite cinnamon honey butter and enjoying every single bite. If I didn’t have any of that in hand…. I would probably talk myself into using a little Nutella or Hershey’s chocolate spread (which we keep on hand because of my daughter’s nut thing). Are you with me?!?!

Have I convinced you that you totally need to try these out? I seriously hope so because you don’t know what you’re missing if these aren’t a part of your life. Trust me. Just do it.

Disclaimer – I am being paid to write this post, however, I’ve got to tell you that every {single} word is the truth (even the parts I’d rather not have to admit like I don’t have my stuff together 100% of the time!)

 

Cinnamon Bubble Bread

Delicious Cinnamon Bread

Crazy – things are a little crazy here. We are pretty much back into the swing of fall activities {football, football, football} and school is just around the corner which means I’m in need of some quick and yummy treats I can throw together pretty easily. That’s why I love Rhodes Bread so much, they allow me to create delicious breads without having to fuss so much in the kitchen. I’ve been feeling like I need a gigantic cinnamon roll, but I haven’t had the time to pull off homemade ones so I thought it might be fun to put together this Cinnamon Bubble Bread. It’s pretty tasty and uses only a handful of ingredients…. even better right? If you are interested in the recipe, you can find it here.

Cheesy Sausage Bread

Cheesy Sausage Loaf

This delicious cheesy sausage bread is dotted with melted cheese and sausage crumbles. It’s so so so good. Rhodes takes care of the hours that would otherwise be spent preparing bread dough and  with only four ingredients it is so simple to create! No one will ever guess you cheated either – it tastes like you did spend hours in the kitchen! Yum! This recipe is extremely versatile. You can spice it up depending on the kind of sausage you use and change the flavors by switching up which cheese you add. I think either Mozzarella or Swiss cheese would taste fabulous! I’m partying with Rhodes today, so you can find the recipe here.
