Hey Y’all!

Sorry for the lack of menu this week.  I feel like a big, fat failure!


Things have been pretty hectic around here…..but not too hectic to try out some new yummy recipes!

I’ve been on the hunt for a good bread stick recipe to share with you….after a few failed recipes, this one gets a thumbs way up!


Whole Wheat Bread Sticks


3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 Tbs dry yeast
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 Tbs honey
1 tsp salt
1.5 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dried basil

topping ingredients:
4 Tbs Butter, melted
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 cup Parmesan Reggiano, grated


Preheat oven to 375.
Dissolve yeast in warm water.
Add remaining ingredients and make soft dough.
Place dough in lightly oiled bowl, and allow to rise until doubled (30 mins)
Punch down dough after 30 minutes.
Melt 2 Tbs of butter, and pour in 9×13 baking dish. Evenly coat the bottom of the dish.
Roll out the dough to fit pan.
Place dough in pan.
Pour remaining 2 Tbs of melter butter on the top of the dough, evenly coating.
Cut the dough into strips lengthwise and then one cut vertically down the middle so as to halve the long strips. (see picture)

breadstick-recipe (25)Top with garlic salt, Parmesan Cheese, and parsley.
Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes, to give it time to puff slightly.
Bake at 375 approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
