Recipe # 17: Candied Yams

Recipe: Candied Yams
Verdict: Yummy!
Made these for Thanksgiving. They were super easy to make, and everyone enjoyed them, even my husband, who doesn't usually like sweet and savory mixed together. Don't they look pretty?

Recipe # 16: Garlic Knots

Recipe: Garlic Knots

Verdict: Super yummy!! I will make these again and again :)

Pizza dough all rolled out. I used pre-made, but you could make your own.

Here are the strips of dough all knotted up and ready for the oven.

Garlic simmering in butter. YUM! I added red chili pepper flakes for a little spice.

Fresh out of the oven.

And ready to eat after swimming in the garlic butter for a little bit.

I served them as an appetizer for calzones, one of my favorite meals :)
