A Rhodes Triumph!!

I'm sure you're wondering why this is blogworthy, but for me this is a big deal. Every Sunday my MIL makes these fabulous, perfect Rhodes rolls. I have NEVER been able to get mine to turn out - not even once! I am not, nor have I ever professed to be a great cook, but I try REALLY hard. And if there's something I want to make but can't get it to turn out, I keep trying and trying until I do. So the last couple of months we've had to make our own Sunday dinner a few times, (I know, poor me) and since it's the only day I will allow myself such a carbohydrate delight, I decided that I needed to figure out how to do them right. So I finally figured it out (on my umptenth attempt) today! If I turn the oven on and put them on top to rise right before church, when we get home they are perfect! I'm just so proud of myself, let's take a moment here to relish........ok, moment relished. Go me!

congrats to you! I only end up with good Rhodes rolls about 1 in every 5 times I attempt them! It's not as easy as the package makes it sound! good job!

I feel the same way about the rhodes rolls! Everytime I make them I put them in the pan, cover them with plastic wrap & let them rise. They always rise beautifully but the second I take the plastic off they fall!! Then I'm left with fallen rolls that look horrible!! So Congrats!!
