I guess the stars in my horoscope are all aligned in the wrong way these days. I keep hurting myself everyday. I really don’t know what’s going on. Last week I fell down from stairs and badly bruised my left arm. It was all black and blue! While that was still healing, I cut my left thumb with a very sharp knife. And while still at it, I fell again from a stool yesterday and twisted my right foot. Now I can’t walk properly and on bed rest. See, I told you there’s something wrong with my stars these days!

I hate getting injured (I mean who loves it?!) and especially when I have so much to do. But all these injuries are keeping me away from the kitchen. And I am also sad about missing my morning run, I just started getting regular with it and then this happened. Anyway I hope no more injuries and I can get back on my feet very soon.

So amidst all this, if there’s one thing which makes me happy, it has to be food. Especially food like these cheesy garlic bread sticks!

Garlic Bread Sticks

Garlic bread reminds me of my school days. When I was in school, pizza was a very new thing in India. “Pizza Hut” had opened recently in the city for the very first time and we used to be so crazy about the garlic bread and pizza there! If you ask me now, I would say that pizza was average at best but since that was our first encounter with pizza, we obviously loved it. Their garlic bread used to be so good (I am sure it sill is, but I haven’t been to pizza hut in ages!) In fact I always loved the garlic bread more than the pizza. Also Domino’s garlic bread sticks used be very popular then!

The football season is in full swing and while the game is exciting, my focus is always on the food. I mean there’s no fun watching football without some good food. Agree? And cheesy finger food is the best kind of food that you can serve to hungry people. These garlic bread sticks are so easy to make, you don’t even need the dough to rise and all. Also if you want to cut short the process, here’s a tip – use store bought pizza dough. I am sure it will work the same way! Enjoy!

Method

In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, minced garlic and dried oregano. Set aside.

In a measuring cup, take warm water and add honey to it. Add active dry yeast and give a quick stir.

Let the yeast activate for 5-10 minutes. This is called proofing of the yeast. You will know your yeast is proofed/active when it’s all bubbly and frothy on top. If you don’t see any bubbling up, your yeast is dead. Throw the water and start again.

To the flour mix, now add olive oil and mix.

Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and knead using the hook attachment of your stand mixer or your hands for 7-8 minutes.

Knead till the dough looks smooth. Place the dough in a well oiled bowl and set aside for 15 minutes in a warm place.

    I wanted to say the bread sticks with garlic and cheese look delicious and feel like making them right now. Can I put some green and black olives in mix or on them?
    Felt so sorry to hear of your injuries, then saw it was many many moons ago. Hahaha I thought maybe someone injure you. Will let you know soon but confident of your taste for food. Take care.
