Olive Garden Breadsticks Copycat Recipe


Olive Garden Breadsticks Copycat Recipe

Now you can make the Olive Garden breadsticks at home. Now any meal can be complete with these buttery and garlic flavored bread.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast or one package instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour + extra flour for dusting board
Buttery Topping
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon oregano
Directions
  1. Combine warm water, sugar, oil, and yeast in a large bowl of a mixer or a food processor. 
  2. Add 4 1/2 cups of flour and salt and process until the dough forms a nice uniform ball. 
  3. Place dough in a bowl that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Cover the bowl with a towel and allow to rise in a warm place. 
  4. When the dough has doubled in size (this should take about an hour) place dough on a well-floured board and roll out the dough. Roll out dough into a large rectangle. 
  5. Cut in half horizontally, and then cut vertical strips of dough about 1 1/2 inches thick. 
  6. Roll the strips of dough into sticks. 
  7. Place dough on a greased baking sheet, and allow them to rise until they have doubled in size (this should take about 45 minutes)
  8. Melt butter, and stir in Parmesan cheese and oregano. For best results rub the oregano between your fingers as you place it into the butter. This will help release the oils of the oregano and make it taste even better. 
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  10. Just before baking breadsticks brush them with butter. 
  11. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. 
  12. Brush any leftover butter topping on these just before serving.

They store well in the fridge for days if you want to make them ahead of time or have leftovers. Great for parties and putting them in individual dishes makes them super cute with a cherry on top!
Will definitely make these again! The Dream Whip whipped topping was yummy in these! If you can’t find Dream Whip you can use Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream topping as a replacement.

Fastest Way to Lose Weight



The Fastest Way to Lose Weight



Even if you are a moderately active adult, at some point in life, you will probably need to lose weight. While you want those extra pounds gone right away, it takes some dedication to get the best result. The following tips will help jumpstart your way to a better body.

Eat Breakfast


You may be tempted to skip breakfast to speed up your weight loss, but eating first thing in the morning will fill you up and keep the cravings away. The meal should contain:

- At least 500 calories

- Lean protein, whole grains and fruit

- Healthy fats from nuts, yogurt and eggs

Drink Coffee or Tea


The caffeine in coffee and tea is an excellent antioxidant and up to 400 mg per day is considered safe and healthy. Caffeine also offers you the following benefits:

- Diuretic properties to shed water weight

- Faster metabolism

- Accessible and inexpensive

Avoid Sugary Drinks


Although it is important to drink enough and stay hydrated, you will not feel as satiated with liquid calories as you will with food calories, especially if the liquid is sweetened. To avoid this trap, monitor your drinks and avoid:

- Soda and juice

- Sweetened coffee and tea

- Alcoholic beverages

Drinking one of each can add 800 extra calories by the end of the day. In addition, alcohol slows your fat metabolism, making it more difficult to lose weight.

Get Some Exercise


Your metabolism slows down as they day ends, and taking a brisk walk before dinner can help you lose weight quickly by:

- Keeping your metabolism elevated for up to three hours

- Discouraging overeating and snacking

- Reducing stress and encouraging relaxation

When you are relaxed, your body will produce more melatonin, which leads to a sound and refreshing sleep.

Get a Good Night's Sleep


Modern life has encroached on human sleeping habits to the point where many people are chronically sleep deprived, which contributes to weight gain. To avoid this, you should do the following:

- Go to bed and get up at the same time each day

- Sleep at least seven hours per night

- Do not exercise within two hours of bedtime

- Do not use your bed for anything other than sleep or sex

Stay Accountable


Losing weight quickly and keeping it off requires self accountability. You can do this in the following ways:

- Keeping a journal of everything you eat each day

- Using an app that counts calories and reminds you to exercise

- Including family and friends in your weight-loss journey

Losing a few pounds fast does not have to be difficult. Following the tips above will start you on the path to your personal weight-loss goals.

Olive Garden Tiramisu Copycat Recipe





Olive Garden Tiramisu Copycat Recipe


Ingredients
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups mascarpone cheese (this is an Italian cream cheese)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 20 – 24 lady fingers
  • 1/4 cup cold espresso
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua coffee liqueur
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder

Instructions

Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring it to a boil over medium/high heat, then reduce heat so that the water is simmering. Whisk egg yolks, milk and sugar together in a medium metal bowl, then place the bowl on top of the saucepan (you can also use a double boiler for this step). Stir the mixture often for ten minutes. After the sugar dissolves the mixture should begin to thicken and turn light yellow. Remove it from the heat to cool. Use an electric mixer to combine mascarpone, cream cheese and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix until mostly creamy, but with a few small chunks remaining. Add egg yolk mixture to the cheese mixture and mix just until well-combined.

Combine espresso and Kahlua in a small bowl. Pour this mixture onto a dinner plate. One-by-one touch the bottom of each lady finger in the espresso. The lady finger will quickly soak up the espresso/Kahlua mixture, but you don’t want the lady finger soaked — just a dab will do ya. The top half of each lady finger should still be dry. Arrange the soaked lady fingers side-by-side on the bottom of an 8×8-inch serving dish or baking pan.Spoon about half of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers, then add another layer of soaked lady fingers on top of the cheese mixture. Spoon the remaining cheese mixture over the second layer of lady fingers and spread it evenly.

Put two teaspoons of cocoa powder in a tight-mesh strainer and gently tap the side of the strainer to add an even dusting of cocoa powder over the top of the dessert. Cover and chill for several hours. To serve, slice the dessert twice across and down creating 9 even portions (the first serving is always the hardest to get out).
