Bread Sticks with a Twist
For all my friends that I've dragged to the Pizza Factory, this post is for you. We LOVE their bread sticks that they twist around a wood dowel and I found this yummy recipe posted over on Kara's Kitchen Creations.
Here's how you do it....

Dough:
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp SAF instant yeast
3 1/2 - 4 cups flour

Glaze:
2-3 Tbsp melted butter
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dill weed
1/8 tsp Italian seasoning

Combine water, sugar, salt, yeast, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 3-4 minutes. On greased countertop, break off pieces of dough and roll into thin ropes that are about 1 1/2 times the length of your skewers. Twist the rope around the skewer and place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat till all dough is used. Let twists rise till doubled, about 30 minutes. While they are baking, combine the glaze ingredients so the flavors will blend. Bake twists at 375 for about 12-15 minutes or till golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with the butter glaze.



Finally Spring...and things are Green!
My favorite color is NOT green, but I saw this posted on another blog under "favorite flickr images" and I loved it. So I'm sharing!
