About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Super Easy Homemade Garlic Knots

I'm pretty sure I'll never go back to buying store bought garlic bread again for our spaghetti dinners.  These homemade garlic knots were super easy to make and really yummy!


Ingredients
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon yeast
3 1/2 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 teaspoon salt

Garlic Spread
1 stick butter
1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
1 teaspoon parsley

Mix warm water, sugar, and yeast and let that rest for 5 minutes.  Add flour and salt and mix until dough is smooth.  Let rise for 10 minutes.  On a floured surface, roll the dough out about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut the dough into strips using a pizza cutter.  Take the strips, tie into knots and place on baking sheet.  Let knots rise for 10 minutes.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  While the knots are baking, melt the butter and add the garlic and parsley.  As soon as the garlic knots come out of the oven, brush the tops with the butter garlic mixture.
