Get Cooking With Weldon Owen + Delicious Bread Sticks Recipe & Giveaway (US & Canada) 3/3

I have always loved spending time baking, cooking, and creating in the kitchen.  From a young age, it always drew me in and my mom would constantly turn to me to deliver a delicious dessert for whatever upcoming gathering, meeting, or event they had coming up.  But I know that not everyone loves to cook or bake.  My sister is one.  She feels like she is incapable but I think that in a case like hers, she just needs some help and a really great set of cookbooks to boost her confidence.  I still love finding great cookbooks to help me create bigger and better dishes, sides, and desserts too.  So today, I’m thrilled to partner with Weldon Owen to bring you three of their great selections as well as a yummy recipe.

The recipe book Bread Bread Bread – Recipes, Techniques, & Shortcuts by Martin Johansson, is filled with many recipes and some really great tips and hints that I didn’t know.  He offers recipes for a variety of breads including: loaves, baguettes, rolls, pizza, flatbread, cripbread, quick bread, sourdough bread, sweet bread, and more!   I scoured the book and settled on the page 88 Breadsticks, which a level 1 out of 5 difficulty, for my first try.  To say that they were a hit would be an understatement as my family of 7 devoured a good share of this batch within minutes of them coming out of the oven.

I followed the directions step-by-step (except I forgot to use the parchment paper) and these breadsticks were really easy to make.  There’s plenty of downtime in between while the dough is resting and rising that allowed me to create the rest of my meal.  Overall, this was definitely a great recipe that received great ravings and enthusiastic thumbs up from everyone in my family.
