Twisty Roasted Garlic Breadsticks


We make pizza a lot over here and last time, I had a whole other batch of pizza dough left over. Feeling ambitious, I decided to whip up some breadsticks to serve alongside the pizza. As I was rolling them out, I had a vision. I’ve made “twisty breadsticks” before, but found that the dough didn’t quite […]

Teaching Kids How to Make Pizza


So here’s the thing. As a parent, I have visions of me and my grown girls in the kitchen, preparing a big family feast together and chop-chop-chopping while we giggle away. And I’d like to think that one day, they’ll bring me breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. But before any of that can happen, I […]

Soft Pretzels

Soft Pretzels

I just love soft pretzels. I typically reserve them for hockey games, when you get them out of that warming stand piping hot, and dunk them in mustard until it’s falling down onto your fingers. But now that I no longer live just down the road from the arena, my craving has gone unfulfilled. Until […]
