I took a nap after church instead of starting rolls and woke up in a pinch needing to satisfy my carb desire.  I found this recipe on Sisters Cafe.  Husband, kids, and mother approved.  They are great, especially for the time and ingredients they take.  Sorry for my pathetic picture...

Our Favorite Breadsticks 

Submitted by Melanie~The Sisters Cafe

1 ½ cup warm water
1 Tablespoon yeast
2 Tablespoons sugar
3 ½ cup flour
½ tsp salt
4 Tablespoons butter  
Mix the yeast and sugar together then add it to warm water.  Let it sit and bubble for a few minutes.  Add the salt and flour.  Knead for 3 minutes then let the dough rest for 10 minutes.  Melt the butter and pour most of it onto a cookie sheet.  Roll out dough to fit the cookie sheet.  Then flip all the dough over to coat both sides in butter.  Cut the dough to desired width, then twist and lay on the cookie sheet. Brush remainder of butter on breadsticks and sprinkle with garlic salt, parmesan cheese, and parsley (or whatever seasonings you like). Raise for 10-20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 375 and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden.

Belgian Waffles

This has become mine and Jev's favorite Belgian waffle recipe. It doesn't use yeast like most other recipes I've found in my waffle book so it is quick and easy. And if you've been looking for a super awesome Belgian Waffle maker, I have the Waring Pro Double-Belgian Waffle Maker and I love it.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender for a minute or two.

Pour into waffle iron.

*When you put the eggs in a blender it makes them really puffy so your waffle iron may pop open like mine does. Just mix everything with a wisk instead if you don't want
this to happen.
