Christmas Breadsticks

Hi again, Amanda from ‘Simple home cook’ here. Christmas is nearly upon us and I love this time of year when we get to hang out with our family, sing songs and enjoy each others company. My kids love cooking and sometimes it is hard to get all 3 kids involved in the kitchen but this recipe is perfect. It is little messy but a bit of mess never hurt anyone.

I wanted to give them a Christmas theme but it is almost impossible to find red and green sprinkles (lots of purple and pink but no red!) I was wondering the supermarket aisles trying to find something else to use when I spotted the apple flavoured tic tacs. Green and red – perfect!! I got out my mortar and pestle and bashed them into pieces and they worked great.

Try them with your kids these holidays – they will love them.

Amanda started on this journey when her 3rd child was born, and feeding a family of 5 became even more of a challenge with three children under 3 1/2 years of age! She started working on a list of recipes that were simple and affordable that she could make ahead of time so she wasn’t stuck in the kitchen at 5pm when the household duties kicked up a notch. Amanda’s goal is to create simple meals that anyone can cook and enjoy without spending hours in the kitchen. Her recipes are perfect for that busy weeknight dinner, snacks to fill the lunch boxes or for students learning to cook. It’s simple home cooking at its best to free up your time to enjoy the fun things in life — your kids!
