Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese – I used mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp of flour
  • 5 tbsp of bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
  • a tad of olive oil, or cooking spray

In Process 1

Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen.

In Process 2
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.

To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture.

In Process 3
Once all of the cheese sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray (this helps keep them from sticking).

Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. Watch them closely so they don’t melt completely! Serve with marinara sauce and enjoy!

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day Friends!

I(Kasey) heard an excerpt from the book, The Invisible Woman, several years ago at a mom’s group at church. Since then, it has become a Mother’s Day tradition to share the excerpt with you. Even though I have read it countless times it always speaks to my heart in such a personal way. So often we give so much of ourselves and wonder if we have made a difference or if anyone notices. On a day like Mother’s Day when we “should” feel most appreciated, many of us may struggle with insecurities in our mind. Today – to every woman out there I want to remind you how important you are, how loved you are by the God of the universe, and how eternally important it is to be a mom.
