Parmesan Herb Garlic Knots

I had some inquiries about my garlic knot recipe. I use the previously submitted pizza dough recipe, but I’ll include it incase someone didn’t catch the post. This makes a whopping 16 large knots, so halving the recipe would be beneficial if you didn’t want that many. You can also freeze the dough before theContinue reading “Parmesan Herb Garlic Knots”

Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

I made Chicken Enchiladas for dinner and they were amazing. If you don’t have the spice ingredients, you can certainly use premixed taco seasoning.
