Bread has become very expensive the past year or so. Rhodes is a great value with a price around a $1 per loaf. Baking bread at home is worth it because it is so fresh and delicious when the bread comes hot of the oven. I usually place the bread out on my counter right before I go to bed. My kitchen is cool, so it sometimes has to rise a bit more before baking. My sons come running when the bread comes out of the oven and the two of them can devour a loaf in less than 5 minutes. I like the fact that the bread does not contain any preservatives or artificial ingredients. I like taking hot loaves to neighbors. They think that I made the bread myself.
These cinnamon rolls are excellent. I put them in a pan (per directions) and let them thaw in the refrigerator over night. The next morning when they are still cold I UNROLL them and dust them with cinnamon,raisins .ground walnuts and brown sugar. Then I roll them back up and let them rise at room temp per directions. Then bake. They taste like home made. They're good if you don't doctor them up-but you'll be happy you took the extra 5 minutes to add to them.
