I can now say that I have! A few weeks ago, I noticed a lot of activity on my site meter concerning this post here. I also noticed that there was a lot of looking at the pictures of the Lemon Pull Aparts on google images. Have you tried them yet? You haven't?!?!?! Lawsy you do not know what you are missing! Go copy down the recipe and make them tonight! Your family will love you for it! The recipe IS.THAT.GOOD. I thought that someone was just looking at the recipe that I had posted and was making them.

Boy was I ever wrong.

Two days after that, I get this email:

Hello Mindy,

My name is Carrie , I work for Rhodes Bake-N-Serv. I have been asked by the President of Rhodes to surf the web in search of talented bakers who sing the praises of Rhodes products. We would like to say “thank you” for your post and recipe using Rhodes frozen products, we have received a number of our most requested recipes from our wonderful consumers.

In our appreciation of your dedication to Rhodes we would like to send you a case of free samples. We are currently introducing our new line of Warm-N-Serv products. A year in product development, the new frozen partially baked rolls come in their own convenient disposable pan. These delicious rolls are packaged nine rolls to a pan and they are ready to serve in minutes.

Now wasn't that nice of them?!?!?!?!

A few days later, this box was left on my front porch....

We opened it up and it was COLD! bbbbrrrrrrrrrr Cause it was packed with dry ice and....

HOT ROLLS!! Included were 4 packages of Rhodes new dinner rolls! We got Garlic Butter, Multi-Grain, Dinner Rolls and Sticky Buns!

This is how they look when you get ready to pop them into the oven. They are cooked at 350 and took just about 13 minutes in my oven.

And this is what they looked like when they came out. These are the Garlic Butter Rolls and OMG...did they ever smell wonderful!

They tasted even better!!

I have not seen these at grocery stores yet but they will definitely be something that I will buy and keep in the freezer. Not only did they taste GREAT but they were just so simple to prepare!


Now I think I need to write a blog entry about my wonderful Honda CRV and maybe the Honda people will read it and send me a *sample*. ~grins~

What would you like to sample or try out if given the opportunity??
......would totally love being a sample guinea pig


  1. Wow, how nice of them :)
    Those look delicious!

  2. Wee, free bread. I need to get on their mailing list.

  3. Have you tried their orange rolls??? Sooooooo good!!

  4. Oh yum. What time is snack?

  5. How cool!! Save some for me next month!!!

  6. You are the luckiest girl!! Those rolls look delish.

    Here is what I would like to find on my porch to sample:

    an AIG bailout (different kind of bread....)
    Tickets to the Caribbean
    George Clooney

    Since we're "anything goes-ing" here.

  7. Oh, that's exciting. How's it working with your diet? (That's the sarcasm a mother would throw in. You can thank me later). I am definitely going to look for these lil suckers in the store. Yummmm!

    I would like the Florida Lotto left on my steps.

  8. I like Rhodes rolls. They haven't sent me any free one though.

    I'd totally love to be a tester for a Cadillac XLR!!

  9. How cool! I just may have to buy some and make those lemon pull aparts, because they look so good and because the company is so nice to you.

    Suppose I should do a post about how we use their bread as our communion bread?

    I would like to sample fresh lobsters like my in-laws send us for special occasions.

    And a trip to Bermuda.
    And what it would feel like to be in a body that's 50 lbs lighter so that I can look good in a bathings suit when I'm in Bermuda.

  10. *mouth watering*

    YUMMERS! I can smell them, now!
