Easy Breadsticks

The last few months in Kingman I made a new friend, Toni Taylor. (yes Toni, I am calling you out :) We had so many things in common, from sewing to cooking, crafting, we were destined to be friends. She is the most amazing baker, trying all sorts of things that just down right scare me. I got this next recipe from her (I really hope she doesn't mind me sharing). She made these breadsticks for our daughters piano recital potluck, it was around Halloween, so she shaped the dough to look like bones. So cute! Anyways, these are easy, SUPER yummy and worth the 20 minutes to make.

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tb yeast
2 Tb sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups flour + some
1/4 cups butter, melted to spread on top

Mix dough, roll out ON BAKING SHEET, spread with butter, sprinkle sea salt, parm. and parsley. cut with pizza cuter, then scoot (technical term :) them apart so they can rise and spread during baking.

Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes.

Recipe from THE Toni Taylor. (love ya girl!)

Growing up my Mother used to make 'breakfast' for dinner. I loved those nights! Waffles or Ebleskivers, didn't matter, they both were delicious. Now that I am grown up (or try to be) I love making my kids 'breakfast for dinner'. They loved these little round pancake balls. You need a certain pan to cook them, I got mine from my Mother, who got it from William-Sonoma.

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar

3 eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk

Sift dry ingredients, beat egg yokes and then add buttermilk. Mix with dry ingredients. Beat egg whites until stiff and fluffy, fold into mixture.

Heat pan until hot, fill middle circle with water. add 1/2 tsp of crisco in every compartment, cook over medium heat rotating batter so all sides cook evenly. Top with butter and syrup or fruits and powdered sugar.

Recipe from my Mom (David's sister Staci also uses the same recipe)

Give me a BREAK!

Well, I took a break, I am sure you noticed, haven't posted ANYTHING since last November, geesh, what a slacker! I just needed a break. So I took one, sorry for those of you who read often, please know that I have 15 recipes that are set to publish every 5th day, so you will be feed (literally speaking) for a month or so :)

Thanks for understanding, I missed blogging the food I have continued to make. Hope you enjoy these new recipes!
