Bread Sticks

Well, Josh is sick so I let him
pick out his choice of soup for dinner.
I gave him a cook book to look
through and then he requested the
Bacon & Corn Chowder off my blog.

I decided to whip up some bread sticks
while his soup was simmering.

 Mix up dough and let raise for 20 minutes.
Spread on a greased tray.
Top with butter, spices and Parmesan cheese.

 Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Then cut into bread sticks.

Ready to be enjoyed with soup.

Bread Sticks

1 cup warm water
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. oil
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. salt
a few shakes of pepper
fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Whisk together warm water, yeast, honey and oil.
In another bowl combine flour and salt.
Make a well in the middle and pour in yeast mixture.
Mix together with a fork until combined.
Knead lightly with our hands and form a ball.
Cover and let rise 20 minutes.

Spray cookie sheet and spread out dough.
Mix together garlic powder, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper.
Brush with butter and sprinkle with seasonings.
Top with Parmesan cheese.
Let raise a little longer. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
Cut into bread sticks and serve warm.

I've been enjoying my irises.

Me and my dear Grandma's. They are both very special to me.
My Grandma Mandell, the one of the left, just lost
her sister to cancer. It seems like so many of
her loved ones have been taken by this awful disease.
She lost her husband to cancer and also a special
friend, Jacob, a few months ago.
She is a quiet lady who never complains-
a woman of God indeed. 
Lift her up in prayer if you think about it.



  1. Those bread sticks look so yummy. I copied the recipe and can't wait to try them!
    Which sister of Mandell's died? Was it Louise K?

  2. Aunt Coleen, yes it was Louise Kisamore. She fought it for awhile, but then the cancer would not respond to the Chemo.
