Recipe of the Month

2 t active dry yeast
1 1/3 C barely warm water
2 T extra virgin olive oil
2 t salt
3 1/2 C all purpose flour (or bread flour)
1/4 C melted butter
1 T dried parsley flakes
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the yeast and water. Let sit 5 minutes, until yeast is foamy. Mix in the olive oil, salt and flour. If you have a stand mixer, attach the dough hook and knead the dough for 5-6 minutes, or until elastic. If you are doing this by hand, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until dough is elastic, 7-10 minutes. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until dough is doubled in size.

In a small bowl, combine melt butter, parsley flakes and minced garlic. Set aside.

Punch down the down. Tear off small pieces of dough (roughly the size of the bowl of a medium spoon), coat in the butter mixture, and place in the bottom of a bundt pan. Repeat this process until you have one layer of dough balls. Sprinkle on 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. Continue layering the dough balls and cheese until you have 3 layers. Cover the pan with a clean towel and allow to sit until dough has doubled in size, 20-30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until bread is golden brown. Serve hot with a side of marinara or tomato sauce.

Thunder Valley Casino

Last week, we spent some time at Thunder Valley Casino. They upgraded the look of some of their walls. 

These letters are made of a heavy duty black plastic. We also made the small plaques under each photo. They are 1"x3" black plexi glass with a black background and gold engraved letters. The plaques identify each person and their title.

Contact Signs On Time today to get started on your lettering.
