Hello my darlings,
Yesterday, to my husbands delight, I craved the smell of freshly baked bread (yes, I crave smells). I decided to try a recipe for garlic knots that I found back in October. This bread was not that difficult to make, and the finished product was well worth the labor. I used to be afraid of working with dry yeast, because in Sweden our yeast is quite different; it usually comes in a wet paste type form. When using dry yeast, I'm never quite sure how warm to make the liquid activating the yeast. However, the more bread recipes I try, the more confident I become in my attempts at reproducing this delicious international staple. And really... who doesn't love the smell of baking bread? I should bottle it and make it into a perfume.
I want to refer you to the website where I found this garlic knot recipe. One of my dear friends shared this website with me, and I want to pass it on to you. It is not only aesthetically magnificent in that the photography makes your mouth water, but the recipes are tried and true...truly delicious.
