Garlicky Pizzeria Style Knots

Happy Thursday W+A friends! Tonight we are headed to the city for a tasting and of course New York is still holding on to that winter weather. We were teased with a few nice days last week, which gave us a taste of spring time weather. This week we wanted to use up some of our frozen three ingredient dough. Now that we've tested it out on bagels and pizzas, garlic knots were the next obvious choice. These were so easy to make and we paired them with some zucchini noodles and sauce. They are also a great lunchtime snack, toasted up in the morning with some butter or can be enjoyed with a big salad or soup. Here is everything you'll need to make these garlicky guys: 

Ingredients 
1 c of self rising flour 
1 c of plain nonfat Greek yogurt (drained) 
3/4 tsp of salt 
2 tsp of baking powder 
1 tbsp of olive oil 
1 tbsp of butter 
2-3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
2 tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp of fresh or dry parsley (chopped)

Directions 
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick olive oil spray. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Use a spatula to add in the yogurt and mix until dough starts to form. Flour your hands and knead dough. Add more flour if necessary and roll into one large bowl. Divide your dough into 8 small pieces and roll them into sticks about 8 inches long. Loop you dough and create a knot. Place your knots on a baking sheet and brush tops with olive oil. Bake for about 17-20 minutes until tops start to turn a golden brown. While you knots bake, heat your skillet with your butter and add your garlic. Sauté for about 4 minutes until garlic starts to get golden. Turn off heat and toss in your garlic knots giving your pan a few tosses until your knots are covered. Take an excess butter and garlic and brush onto the tops of the knots. Plate and sprinkle with parsley and grated cheese.

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 


Ingredients (for wings) 1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks  1 c of nonfat greek yogurt  3 tbsp of paprika  1 tbsp of oregano  1 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  Juice of 1/2 a lemon  1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour  1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Directions Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air frye…

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious.
