These breadsticks are best straight out of the oven, of course, but they’re also good up to a day old, especially if you pop them in the microwave for a second first.  The mozzarella gives them a great texture, and the parmesan gives them a lively flavor that means eight of these barely last ten minutes.  Plus, unlike my previous breadstick recipes, these breadsticks are soft and chewy, but don’t require a mold or even a stand mixer to make — both definite plusses.

Sometimes my motivation for devising a recipe is as simple as someone staring mournfully at a price tag in a store.  :-)  My mother really wanted cinnamon raisin bread, but she did not want to play $8 for one measly little loaf made mostly out of brown rice flour off the shelf.  So I grabbed the principles behind my garlic cheese bread and set to work, and a couple trials later I had this recipe.

This curry is great served with rice, because once you eat all the veggies out you can tump in the rice and let it soak up the leftover liquid. Sometimes I even scoop some rice in with
earlier veggie-full bites, too. Some folks are adept enough to eat this dish with chopsticks when you eat it this way (with rice in the liquid) … I’m not :D. Even Sean, who is much better with chopsticks than I am, doesn’t eat this dish with them! But perhaps you have the chopstick-fu to pull it off. If so, more power to you. One way or the other, this is delicious, so enjoy!

This is one of my favorite salads, though it isn’t a traditional one. It makes a great side dish for barbecue-style events or to go along with simple dinners at home. It’s crisp, refreshing, easy to make and quite tasty.

Sorry this is late–we had a housewarming party this weekend and it ate a ton of time! However, before she left for home earlier this week, Jennifer and I finally did our “combine the  cinnamon rolls” project we’ve been talking about for so long. It was actually kinda funny to make a dish and then all three of us (me, Sean, Jennifer) sit down and eat it–that doesn’t happen much any more, and almost NEVER with a dessert. Sean and Jennifer both commented on that as we ate our way through the experiments, in fact.
