We asked Janelle a few questions so we could get to know her better!~
What do you enjoy most about sharing meals with others?
I love the fellowship meals provide! So many memories, conversations, and special moments are made over the dinner table. As far as meal ministry goes - it is an honor to serve those who are going through life's difficulties. Often times, it isn't the meal itself that is the most helpful thing, it's that someone is thinking about them and they care what's going on in their lives.
Do you have a favorite kitchen gadget?
Yep! I love my pizza cutter. With small children in the home, this handy gadget makes my life much eaiser because I can cut their meals into bite-sized pieces without a hassle.
What is your favorite ingredient to cook with?
Oh dear, probably butter. The real stuff.
Why do you like Rhodes products?
I love Rhodes - My mottos is "Why make something homemade when the short cut is just as good?" Rhodes products are the perfect example! There isn't anything that smells better than Rhodes rolls baking in the oven.
What is your favorite thing to make with Rhodes?
These four recipes:
(Here's a sneak peak of some of the Rhodes recipes she's featured on her blog. For all the details, click on over!)
"I get asked all the time for my “refrigerator roll” recipe. Well, Ladies- I hope I’m not disappointing you, but I use Rhodes dough! I tend to spend most of my time on the main meal I’m making and less time on salads and rolls. Please don’t under estimate how delicious these are though…I honestly can’t make them from scratch any better than they taste!"
"Mmmm…these breakfast pockets are absolutely delicious. My children LOVE them. Best yet, you can eat them piping hot out of the oven, then freeze the left overs to bake in the oven for a later time. Enjoy!"
"Nutella Bread Sticks: Piping hot pizza dough covered with melted Nutella, chocolate chips, and mixed nut topping then cut into rectangular slices. Best dessert under the sun."
"This is a very simple recipe for very delicious calzones ! Leave the bread to thaw and rise in the morning and come home to ready made dough! You can be as creative as you like with the filling…traditional calzones typically are made with mozzarella, ricotta, and tomatoes..in this recipe I added swiss and ham for a sweet and savory kick. A definite crowd pleaser for the grown-ups and little tykes alike!"
Well there you have it - four delicious recipes! Comfy in the Kitchen is definitely worth a visit, don'tcha think?
