  • 1 package 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt optional-okay for children two years and above and of course adults too
  • 2 cups plus 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves finely chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)

How to make: 

  1. Dissolve the yeast in the water, and let it sit for 10 minutes. Add the salt and the 2 cups flour. Using the hood attachment, mix at low speed, gradually increasing to high until smooth.
  2. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp flour on the starter in a bowl. Cover it with plastic wrap or a damp dishtowel and set it in a warm spot for about 1 hour, until the starter has doubled in size.
  3. Add the oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper, parmesan cheese to the starter and mix well on low. Add the flour in 1/2-cup increments. Repeat until the dough forms into a sticky ball, but doesn’t stick to your hand
  4. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease a sheet pan very lightly with olive oil
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle it with the remaining 1/2 cup of flour, and knead by hand for about 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic
  6. Take a 1-ounce portion of the dough and roll it on the work surface with both hands in a back-and-forth motion.
  7. Lay the sticks on the baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, until crisp and brown. Remove the bread sticks from the oven and let cool.

  • 1 head cauliflower (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • Marinara sauce for serving (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

How to make: 

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Remove the outer leaves and cut it into florets. Place them in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is finely chopped and looks like rice.
  2. Transfer the cauliflower to a microwave-safe dish or bowl.  Cover and cook in the microwave for 10 minutes.  Alternatively, you can steam the cauliflower in a steamer basket or bake it in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes.
  3. When the cauliflower is cool, transfer it to a bowl lined with a kitchen towel or cheesecloth.  Bring the ends of the cloth together and squeeze as much liquid out of the cauliflower as you can.  I got about ½ cup liquid.
  4. Transfer the cauliflower to a mixing bowl and add the egg, Italian seasoning, ½ cup cheese, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.  Mix to combine.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form the dough into a rectangle about 8 x 12 inches and ¼-inch thick.
  6. Bake in the oven 15-20 minutes until cooked. Remove the baking sheet and sprinkle the remaining ½ cup cheese over the top. Bake another 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
