what's cooking in my kitchen

OK, so something simple and easy. But they are so goooooooood. This was just part of the meal we had the other night. You'll have to come back and see what the main course was.
These bad boys
Garlic knots. MMmmmmmmmmmmmmm so good. A friend of mine had these and I just had to ask how to make them. Here is what I did!!
Now here is how to make them.

 Make pizza dough. I got this recipe from Pioneer Woman's first cook book. I love it, makes great pizza crust.
 Pinch off a piece after it's risen.

 Roll it out into a snake. Eeeewww or long dough string.

Tie it in a knot. Put in a pan and let rise. Make them a small or big as you want. Have fun with it!

I think I may have let them rise a bit more then I should have. Lost track of time. Imagine! Bake 350-400 until golden brown on the bottom, and no longer doughy.
Now for the yummy part.
Melt some butter, add some fresh garlic, E.V.O.O, parsley (or basil I didn't have parsley). Brush the butter mixture on the warm rolls. Shred some Parmesan cheese and sprinkle on top. Use your own judgement on how much of each for the topping. Like I said, have fun and make it like you like! Just a nice easy bread recipe that tastes great. Don't forget to come back and see what the main course was!
Have a great night all!


  1. Super yum! I need to stop looking at your blog when I am hungry - its torture :) ( But inspiring!!! We'll try those this week for sure )

  2. YUM!! I think the basil would be better than parsley anyway! :)
