rising dough

While I'm in the kitchen, I always reminisce about my childhood, and the blissful food my dad always made. Waking up to the lovely smell of muffins baking in the oven, or homemade pizza dough rising. My love of baking and cooking is mostly derived from me trying to give my children those wonderful smells to remember. I enjoy trying new recipes, and adding to ones already perfected. Seeing the delight on my husbands face makes me want to live in the kitchen, and cook some of his favorite things. That is why today the children, and I made scrumptious bread sticks. They turned out great. Here are some pictures and the recipe. Try adding something new to this recipe, like drizzling with honey, or sprinkling with powder sugar, or maybe even wrapping dough around a mozzarella cheese stick. There is a plethora of things I could come up with that would taste oh so delicious.
RECIPE
1 pkg. active dry yeast

1 c. warm water 
1 t. salt

1/4 c. oil
3 c. all-purpose flour,divided
cornmeal
Dissolve Yeast in water;add sugar
salt and oil,stirring until dissolved. Add 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead for 6-8 minutes or until smooth. Place into greased bowl; cover and let rise for 1 hour; punch down. Divide into 12 portions and roll into strips. Place on greased baking sheet and lightly sprinkle with cornmeal; let rise for 45 minutes to one hour. Bake at 400 degress for 10 minutes or until golden. While baking put a pan of water in oven with breadsticks.


Baylie will lick anything we make.



Fun ways to get you children involved throughout the day is to let them help in the kitchen. Get them a chic little

Until next time,
Melissa
