Pizza Sliders

Pizza Sliders

The name Sliders originated in the 1940s, when sailors in the U.S. Navy would refer to mini-burgers as “sliders” because of their extreme greasiness. In just one or two bites, the burger would just slide right down! The slider was first created at White Castle, a popular American fast food chain restaurant. Since then all kind of sliders has been created.

Olive Garden’s Bread Sticks

There are only a few things that I like at Olive Garden. One of them is the bread sticks. I finally I am able to make them at home and I must say they are goooooddd. Here another great Copy Cat Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 cup warm water (110F)
  • 1¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar, divided
  • 3 – 3¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
 
Instructions
  1. Add yeast and 1 tsp of the sugar to the warm water, mix until yeast dissolves. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  2. In the bowl add 1½ cups flour, yeast mixture, 1 tbsp sugar, 1½ tsp salt and 1 tbsp olive oil, mix on low to combine.
  3. Add in remaining 1½ cups flour and knead mixture for 7 minutes on medium high on my kitchen aid machine I have it on 8, until the dough is smooth and elastic. The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl but still be slightly sticky. Add remaining ¼ cup of flour, if needed. Turn the oven on to 170F. Take the dough out of the bowl and add some olive oil put the dough back in the bowl and turn over so the dough is greased on both sides. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap. Turn the oven off and put the bowl with the dough in the oven and let it rise for about 1 hour. It should be doubled.
  4. Once risen, punch and divide it into 12 equal parts. Roll each piece of dough into a rope and transfer to a greased cookie sheet or use silpat. Cover and let the dough rise again for 1 hour. Spray the top of the bread with some olive oil, that will help them to get them golden. Bake bread sticks at 425F for 10-12 minutes.

Hoe Cakes

Hoe Cakes

Hoe cakes are often associated with the American South, where hoe cakes are served with a variety of sweet and savory foods. There are several explanations where hoe cakes came from. What are hoe cakes? No it’s not what you think it is ;). Some food historians use ex-slave narratives as proof that hoe cakes are called that because they were cooked on the back of a hoe. Others believe the name hoe cake comes not from the slaves cooking the cornmeal on a metal hoe, but rather from an earlier meaning of the word hoe, which was synonymous with griddle.
