Herbed Dumplings
Good with or without the herbs. I use liquid oil in place of the butter to make it easier without problems. Good with any soup or stew!

Emily's Famous Sloppy Joes
These are amazing! So much better than a can of manwich which my kids don't like. But they really loved this and even had seconds. I didn't have a red pepper on hand, so I omitted it. They are usually expensive at our small town store so I don't buy them unless they are on sale. I was short on energy and umph otherwise I would have added some grated carrots which would be a great way to hide a veggy. Green peppers could also be used in place of the red or use both plus the carrots. I often chop carrots in the food processor to tiny bits and then brown them with the onions before adding ground beef. Adds a veggy bulk to the meal..... Anywho we loved this. I didn't measure the spices, just palmed them and it still turned out great! I did make it a tad spicy which we prefer. I did add a bit more water than stated on the recipe as well. I didn't measure as I just added till what I felt was good using HOT water (190` from a water boiler we keep on the counter) not tap cool water. That may have made a difference as it evaporated sooner with the high heat of the pan. But anywho we loved this and I'll be making it again with freshly made buns that I make almost daily for my family.

Kim's Garlic Breadsticks
I'll give this recipe 3 stars, but I did alter it some but mostly because of the texture of the finished product. It was very light and fluffy bread and while it was very tasty bread, breadsticks should have a more dense texture. I scaled the recipe down to fit into my bread machine so I used 3 1/2 cups of flour. The dough has a nice texture when it comes out of the bread machine. When I scaled down the recipe I did round the numbers a bit to accomidate. But to the dough, I also added 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dough. Then for the butter topping I increased the garlic to 1+ teaspoon of garlic powder. I didn't measure, but just palmed the garlic powder. I think next time I would use 4 tablespoons of butter for the topping because 3 was barely enough to cover the breadsticks a second time after baking. After spreading the garlic butter on top I sprinkled a bit more Parmesan cheese on top. I palmed the Parmesan and sprinkled it on by hand so it's just a light touch of it added. Then baked them. After baking I used the remaining garlic butter on top and sprinkled the tops with a bit of kosher salt while wet so it sticks well. We like a lot of garlic in our house so the garlic amount was just perfect for my family. I think you want them to raise a bit but not as much as you would a bread and an hour was to long. I also used a heating pad for about 15-20 min. I made 15 breadsticks with my scaled down recipe.
