I will try this next time. Maybe I have my dough too thin. Thanks for the tip!

Yeah, I have tried several different doughs, but maybe I should just try another one, thanks!

Homemade Breadsticks

I have really gotten into making my own pizza and now can make a pizza to rival most pizza places. The problem is that I love having breadsticks with my pizza and I cannot seem to get these right. There are so many breadstick recipes on the web that look good but when I look at them they all seem to be the same. They are usually just pizza or bread dough with some oil/butter and herbs. Whenever I try this, it just turns into a flat, mediocre tasting flatbread where the flavor doesn't make it past the surface. I am comfortable with homemade dough but I can't get the light, puffy, full flavored breadsticks that I get at restaurants. Any tips or ideas from anyone??

The search for the perfect THICK, CHEWY, NON-ROLLED sugar cookie recipe.

To me, a chocolate chip cookie without chocolate chips is not the same thing as a sugar cookie. I have tried this and it just isn't the same. It just doesn't work for me! The sugar cookies I tend to get in the good bakeries around where I live are so wonderful and not just chocolate chip cookies without the chips. I am really excited to try Emme's cookies now that there has been so much talk about them. Thanks everyone!

Pickling: Should all the pickles be covered in pickling liquid??

Pickling: Should all the pickles be covered in pickling liquid??

Hey thanks everyone. I guess I will have to make some more pickling liquid. I have never reprocessed anything before, I assume I just follow the exact same instructions as I did the first time and put new lids on all the jars? Yes? Thanks again!

Pickling: Should all the pickles be covered in pickling liquid??

I just canned 5 pints of zucchini pickles. When I was packing the jars to process them, I realized there wasn't going to be enough pickling liquid to cover all the pickles. I managed to get 4 pints of fairly covered jars of pickles, but the last jar I didn't have any liquid to cover the pickles. That last jar I just put in the fridge, but now I am wondering if the 4 pints of pickles that I canned are going to be okay, since a few of the pickles at the top of the jar are not submerged. Will bacteria grow on these? Could I get sick eating them? What is the protocol for covering pickles with liquid before canning? Help!!

Meijer is the best supermarket around. The Cascade Meijer on 28th Street in Grand Rapids, Michigan is the best of them all. If you aren't from the midwest you don't know what you're missing!

The search for the perfect THICK, CHEWY, NON-ROLLED sugar cookie recipe.

I have been searching for a sugar cookie recipe that will make cookies like I get at a really good bakery. All the recipes I find are either rolled, thin and crispy, thin and chewy, or too much like a chocolate chip cookie (without the chocolate). I want a cookie that tastes like a sugar cookie but is thick and chewy and craggily (like a chocolate chip cookie but not). Can anyone help? I am struggling to find this type or recipe.

Monica's Gourmet Cookies Grand Rapids MI - Recipe?

I absolutely love Monica's Gourmet Cookies which can be found at several grocery stores in Grand Rapids MI as well as Big Bob's Pizza in East Grand Rapids MI. Does anyone that has had these cookies know of a recipe that comes even close to these or know how to make a cookie similar to these?
