Rhodes Bake-N-Serve Blogger Party



On Wednesday night, I headed over to meet some of my BFF blogger friends at the Rhodes Bake-n-Serve kitchen in Murray.

As I walked in the door I was greeted with fresh bread smells and already had started salivating. Another treat was that I got to IRL my online BFF Dee Dee from the blog What Ever Dee Dee Wants.


A blogger get together wouldn’t be complete with out Camille from Make It Work Mom, Stephanie from Your Daily Blarg and my IRL BFF Tauni.

The demonstration lasted about 45 minutes. The demonstrator was a riot and made us all laugh. Since I’m such a visual person, I really enjoyed watching her make the different items. I kept thinking to myself, “Ok, this is easy.” or “I can totally do that”.

Great tips and advice were shared and I had a few *aha!* moments.

HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR PRODUCT TURNS OUT:
1. Check the exparation date
2. No ice crystals
3. Not stuck together
4. Use after 30 days of purchase – the reason for this is that your freezer above your fridge changes temperature when you are opening and closing it. (This was an *aha!* moment for me).

DEFROST:
1. Thaw in fridge over night. Place in freezer bags.
2. On the counter top
3. In the microwave. (This method isn’t a favorite of the demonstrator, but can be done when in a pinch).

BREADS
1. Mango Salsa Bake
2. Butterscotch Bubble Cake (THIS WAS MY FAVORITE)
3. Cheese Bread with Bacon (this was amazing)
4. Blueberry Crumb Cake
5. Bread sticks
6. Cinnamon rolls

ROLLS:
1. Double Roll – take two rolls and put them in a muffin tin
2. Clover roll – take 2 rolls and cut them in half, use three halves. You can add water with one egg white and spritz with water and put sesame seeds on them.
3. Butter flake – cut these in half and then in half again and put them back in the muffin tin.
4. Soup Bowl – three to make a boal or loaf in 1/2 and use parchment paper. (This is the part where she showed us how to remove the top of the bread bowl and we all had a good laugh about “taking tops off”).
5. Kaiser & Roset – Cut a loaf length wise four times


BAKING TIPS:
1. Coat: egg, butter, oil or flour
2. Cover: plastic wrap
3. Rise: until double
4. Bake: 250 – 20 min

OTHER TIPS:
1. If your dough pulls back, it’s too cold
2. Fill muffin tin with water if you don’t fill all the spots. This keeps the temperature consistent.
3. Salad Supreme
4. When zesting a lemon, only used the yellow part, the white part is bitter.
5. You can prep the dough and put it in the fridge and let it rise after. Just don’t let it doulbe in size or you will get air bubbles.
6. The fresher the dough the faster it will raise.
7. Egg wash is harder and butter is softer and the flavor is different.
8. When working with the dough you want it cold to the touch.

After we were bribed with lots of amazing breads, rolls and cinnomon rolls. I was in a seriouse carb coma on the way home. It was fun to chat with Susan from Freshly Picked and Melissa Esplin.

Today I tried making rolls with my son and a fancy flower, I’ll post those pictures tomorrow :)

  1. Kathy,

    Walking into the Rhodes event and seeing you was such a highlight! I am feeling lucky to have been able to spend a bit of time with you lately.

    You are a beautiful person!

  2. Oh man, I wish I’d known! We did this with our church ladies a couple of years past and it was a blast. I got one of their kids cookbooks & we love it.

  3. I always love seeing you Kathy. You are just a ray of sunshine and sweetness. And you make a superbly gorgeous pregnant woman.

    And… I agree with you… Tauni is marvelous.

    And… I hope to see you soon!

  4. I am so far behind on my blog followings! What a fun blogging event this was and I was so happy to see you there as well! We need to have events like these more often :)
