Buttery Bread Sticks

This is another version of our bread sticks, same basic recipe just a little bit different. I love those recipes that can work in different ways.If you like cheese and garlic then you should check out the Cheesy Garlic Sticks. Or see the Cinnamon Dippers for a sweet version.

Buttery Bread Sticks

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick margarine
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T. salt
  • 1/2 c. milk (approximately)

Preheat oven to 425.

Place margarine in a 9×13 in pan and place in oven.

While margarine is melting mix together all of the ingredients. Pat out to 9×13 size.

When butter is melted remove pan from oven and place dough in pan.

Butter will ooze between strips… Use a brush to coat the tops.

Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks

This is a new take on an old recipe that I’ve had. The kids (and myself) love breadsticks. I especially love the Cheesy Bread from Hungry Howies. This may not be quite as good but my kids don’t complain and neither do I as it is much easier than driving 20-30 minutes one way for an order.

My mouth is watering just typing in this recipe.

  • 1 stick margarine
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t salt

  • 2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • parmesan cheese
  • Italian seasoning

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425.

Place margarine in a 9×13 in pan and place in oven.

Blueberry Oatmeal Bread

I found this recipe a while back but I don’t remember where. I needed to come up with ideas for the blueberries that I had frozen. My kids love this and I normally have to double the recipe to make 2 loaves so everyone can have enough.

Blueberry Oatmeal Bread

Ingredients:

•1 c. blueberries
•2 c. flour, plus 1 T.
•1 c. sugar or 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. honey
•2 t. baking powder
•1 t. salt
•1 c. sour cream or buttermilk (I’ve even used Greek Yogurt)
•2 eggs
•½ c. butter or margarine, melted
•1 t. vanilla
•½ c. oats

Glaze: (optional)

  • 3/4 c. confectioner’s sugar
  • 2-3 T. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla or lemon extract (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375

Grease and flour a 9×5 Loaf Pan

In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the blueberries and oats. Gently stir.

In a separate bowl, mix sour cream, eggs, melted butter and vanilla together and then fold into the dry ingredients.

Scrape the mixture into the loaf pan. It will be thick and a little sticky.

Bake for 50-55 minutes and golden brown and when a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool in the pan for 5 minutes then cool on a wire rack.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Top with glaze, if desired.

For the glaze:

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl, adding enough milk to make the consistency you desire.

Cheddar Muffins

In case you haven’t noticed we eat a lot of cheese. This is a quick and easy muffin that goes with just about any meal and we make them quite often.

Cheddar Muffins

Ingredients
•1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, (If using self rising flour then omit the salt and baking powder)

•1 tablespoon baking powder
•1 teaspoon salt
•2 c. cheddar cheese, grated or shredded
•1 c. milk
•1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
•1 egg
•1/4 t. cayenne pepper, optional
•1/4 t. ground pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 375º F . Spray or grease a 12 cup Muffin Pan. In a large bowl, mix together the egg, milk and butter. Combine all of the dry ingredients in another bowl.Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Once mixed fold in cheddar cheese. Fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Serve warm.

Cheesy Garlic Pull-apart Bread

I’m not sure where exactly I found this recipe but my family is glad I did find it. This one takes a little bit of time to put together so I don’t make it very often.

Cheesy Garlic Pull-apart Bread

16 frozen Rhodes white dinner rolls
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dry parsley flakes
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Take rolls out of the freezer and place in a greased pan. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Let dough sit for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Next, use some clean scissors to cut each roll in half.

Melt butter in a large microwaveable dish. Add the parsley, garlic, salt, Italian seasoning and onion powder. Stir to combine, then add the mozzarella cheese. Now, throw in all your dough halves and using your hand move dough around until it is all evenly coated.

Line the bottom of a 9 inch Springform Pan pan with dough pieces. Cover with the Parmesan cheese.

Cover dough with same sprayed plastic wrap you used in the beginning. Let raise for 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

Place spring form pan on a cookie sheet to prevent the buttery goodness from leaking all over in your oven and making a terribly mess! Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until browned and the center is cooked through.

Remove the sides of the spring form pan and just pull sections off and devour! Ours was gone in 5 minutes flat!!

Hoe Cakes

These are delicious and we often eat them with pintos and greens for a cheap and easy meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 c. self-rising flour
  • 1 c. self-rising cornmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T sugar
  • 3/4 c. buttermilk, or use 3/4 regular milk mixed with 1 t. vinegar
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/4 c.  oil
  • 1/4 c. minced onion, if desired
  • 1 T. garlic powder, if desired

Instructions:

Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Heat oil (or butter) large skillet over medium heat. Drop your batter, by tablespoonfuls, into the hot skillet. Use 2-3 spoonfuls per cake.  Fry until brown and crispy on both sides. Remove cakes from pan and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

 

PB Toast

Simply toast your bread and spread with your favorite peanut butter. Goes well with bananas.

Cinnamon Toast

  • 2 slices bread
  • butter
  • 1 T sugar (I have been using Stevia in place of the sugar)
  • 1 t. cinammon

Mix together cinnamon and sugar. Toast your bread, butter it, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture.

I usually keep an old, clean, parmesan cheese shaker full of cinnamon sugar.

Use 2 T cinnamon to every 1/2 c sugar to make it in larger batches.

Banana Crumb Muffins

We have muffins several times through the month. They are so easy to make and can be eaten for breakfast or snack throughout the day. This is a good way to use up those overripe bananas sitting in the fruit bowl too!

The kids really like this recipe and refer to it as them as Banana Cinnamon Muffins. I changed the original around a little as I was running low on supplies one day and surprisingly enough it worked out just fine. You could also add some chopped nuts to the batter if you like.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 c self rising flour
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup oil

Crumb topping:

  • 2 T all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1 T butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375

Place 15 muffin liners in Muffin Pan. Spray the bottoms, if desired.

In a large bowl, mix together bananas, sugar, egg, and oil.

Add in the flour. Stir the mixture just until moistened.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

Happy Father’s Day!Today I want to publicly thank my sweet husband, Jared, for being such a wonderful father.
jarebearI was madly in love with him when we first met, but that love has only multiplied as I have watched him transform into an amazing father.
David O. McKay once said, “The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother”, and Jared is the perfect example of that everyday. He treats me like a queen and loves his kids unconditionally. I am so grateful for his constant support and love . . . I couldn’t make it through this crazy life without him!

Agh . . . now my keyboard is covered in tears . . . enough with the mushiness!
Because I am not a huge breakfast person (I just love a bowl of cold cereal!), I took the easy route this year and made these muffins for breakfast. The crumb topping is seriously divine! So, mash some bananas and whip these up for a special person in your life. They will love you forever. 🙂
