Well, maybe not right this instance, you’re here already so I hope you’ll keep reading. Besides, I’ve made it easy for you, here’s The Beeroness website and Twitter.

The bread sticks turned out beautifully (though a little overcooked on one side which I am going to blame on my awful, awful oven) and made a nice alternative to my default Italian side dish, garlic bread.
