Dumplings are arguably the best part of chicken soup. When my mom makes them for my family there is never enough. We argue and fight about who has more dumpling...and we race to get seconds and finish of the rest of the dumplings in the pot. Now when my mom makes dumplings she does two batches of dumplings. Makes the soup, and does one batch of dumplings...serves up half the folks and with half the soup remaining add more dumplings. This isn't necessary but makes the soup go really . . .
For as long as I can remember, I have loved rolls. And not just any rolls, but my Grandmother Doxey's Dinner Rolls. The smell of baking rolls takes me back to so many Christmas's and Thanksgivings when I would gorg my childhood belly on fluffy rolls. Desi and I come from a long line of roll makers. Grandma Doxey is our mom's mom and I'm pretty sure she inherited this recipe from her mother. Grandma was famous for her warm, soft and fluffy dinner rolls. She would make them for every family . . .
I first ate these soft, fluffy, garlic bread sticks with a steaming hot bowl of beef stew. sigh, just thinking of the dinner at Ashlees house warms my heart. Why does comfort food do that to you? The smell of homemade bread, chicken noodle soup, mac n cheese....you just get all nostalgic and stuff. Just a testament to how powerful food can be in our lives right? SO, while my bread sticks are rising right now, I thought I would share with you this awesome recipe! These bread sticks are simple . . .
