Cheesy Chow Stix With Herbs!


My grandmother used to make these quite often at family gatherings. They were the high calorie, buttery appetizer that everyone loved to devour. Who doesn't love themselves a bit of butter? It was one of those foods that still lingers on my taste-buds. The taste-memory reminds me of her home and the many Sunday afternoon dinners we often ate there.

Nature's Pride Bread sent me a wonderful coupon in the mail for a FREE loaf of bread. I have never tried the brand before so I headed out to grab a loaf and whip up some of these Cheese Sticks. The bread was the perfect vehicle for the wonderful buttery spread. It baked nicely and toasted up deliciously on the bottom.  The recipe is quite simple, easy and delicious. Make yourself a batch of these before the next big game (if you're into that sort of thing). Or, if you are more like myself,  hide in the other room away from the T.V., pour yourself a glass (or 2) of a  nice Malbec... and eat this without a single pang of guilt.

  4. I've gained five pounds just looking at these- they're amazing! I'll have to make them when there's company. Otherwise I'm afraid I'd eat them all myself.
