Fresh Whole Wheat Baguettes // You know what I love about Rhodes rolls? You can do ANYTHING with them!  I decided to make some whole wheat baguettes to pair with homemade garlic butter and marinara sauce. Hello Italian night! | Tried and TastyYou know what I love about Rhodes rolls? You can do ANYTHING with them!!! They are so crazy versatile, all the hard work is done for you with pre-formed dough, and with just a bit of thawing and rising time you can have fresh bread in no time! When it comes to Rhodes bread, the neighbor gift options are nearly endless. They would make a fantastic neighbor gift in so many ways. I wanted to do a little something different that just handing over a bag of frozen dough, so I decided to make some whole wheat baguettes to pair with homemade garlic butter and marinara sauce. Hello Italian night!

Themed gifts are the best! When I started with the fresh whole wheat baguettes I just kinda rabbit trailed the rest of the way to come up with this fun gift set. I know you can buy a jar of marinara for a couple of bucks, but there’s just something special about receiving a gift that’s homemade. Made from scratch. Made from the heart. Put together your gift set with a lovely kitchen towel, a strainer, some whole wheat spaghetti noodles, your fresh bread, marinara, and garlic butter! Anyone you give this gift to would be a lucky recipient!
