Cheese Twists Photo

During my first few years of cooking as an adult, I loved the freedom of messing up my very own kitchen. Recipes were chosen based on the appeal of the photo with no consideration given to time and effort involved.

It usually took me more time than the recipe predicted but that was likely my own fault. I lacked experience in the most basic techniques and if there was even one person talking my ear off in the kitchen, I worked slower and with less focus.

Over the years I’ve made a lot of mistakes but also done quite a few things right and made some pretty delicious dishes, some completely by accident.

Now I have more experience in the kitchen but less patience. Sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a craving for homemade rolls or a curiosity to try decorating the occasional cake with marshmallow fondant, but for the most part I do want something efficient.

Easy. Simple steps that I can follow and sit to enjoy the goodies I made. Especially on football Sundays. Game day grub is the best!

Cheese Twists Picture

For a while, work ended up taking over Sundays and I wasn’t able to sit and watch my favorite team play. Given the choice I would have loved to sit next to my daughter and watched her yell at the TV during the games, but I gotta pay the bills, ya know?
Fingers crossed, I’m able to adjust my schedule to take Sundays off for the most part. Any work I do can be done from the couch, next to my daughter, and we can have a do-nothing-day.

If I’m being honest, it’s more like a do-almost-nothing-day. Since that’s the best I can do for now, we enjoy the heck out of this new schedule.

If you are anything like me and favor efficient recipes, these crispy cheese twists are definitely for you. Heck, you don’t even need to make them for company if you don’t want to invite anyone over. Make a batch and enjoy them on your very own do-almost-nothing-day!
