Parmesan Herb Bread Sticks

I am so excited to be participating in the Secret Recipe Club again this month.  I took a break in December and SRC took a break in January.  So, it is nice to be back to it!  If you are not familiar with SRC I imagine you have been hiding in some faraway blogosphere.  But, just in case I will share the basics with you.

I was very excited to draw a blog that I am not familiar with that has tons of fabulous recipes. The Cookaholic Wife is written by Nichole a twenty something newlywed that is really spreading her wings in the kitchen.

Her blog is very fun and there are a great number of recipes.  I found myself drawn to the desserts and breads on her blog.  I bookmarked several recipes to come back to.

My favorite read on her blog was the 27 Things About Me.  Although once I read “#8 Caramel is better than chocolate” I knew we could never be friends.  ha!  Just kidding, but really???  Then I perused her dessert section and found many many chocolate recipes and felt so much better!

What finally drew my attention to the kitchen was the Parmesan Herb Bread Sticks.  Still being in need of a cracker or bread for a dip I was making for our Super Bowl party, I was excited to find something that would go so well with the dip.  Our Super Bowl party was yesterday and they were served at our Super Bowl party with my Layered Pizza Dip that I will share with you Wednesday.  Nichole also has a Pizza Dip recipe you can see it here.   The Homemade Parmesan Herb Bread Sticks were the perfect accompaniment to the dip.  YUM!!!

Hope you enjoy, and I encourage you to check our Secret Recipe Club and Nichole’s blog The Cookaholic Wife.

  1. So glad you liked them! It's ironically true that there are more chocolate than caramel recipes on my blog but I blame it on the fact that my chocolate-loving husband constantly asks for me to make 'something with chocolate'. 🙂

  2. These are the kind of breads I find SO hard to resist – warm & aromatic with the herbs — can almost sense their warmth and taste the flavors 🙂 bookmarking to try!

  3. oh they look great! I could see myself eating them all! Might just make these for dinner tonight with a huge nice salad!

  4. This Italian loves your post! I am having a huge group for Italian this weekend, I think I may have to poke around a bit for some new ideas!

  5. I loved that I had your site to choose from (even though it was not an easy task with so many good recipes to try). These bread sticks look great. I guess another recipe to the ever growing list of recipes to try from your site!

  6. I tried making bread sticks last week and ended up with a pita ;-P, now looking at your photo I see that my dough was too thick, next time I'll roll it out thinner :-). Your bread sticks look wonderful!
