Breast cancer is a very personal topic for us, as we have had many dear friends and family who have been diagnosed with this deadly disease. One of our aunts is a survivor and the journey through her chemo and healing was challenging in every sense of the word. But it was something that bonded our family closer together and reminded us the value of life and the importance to help bring out awareness.
October is breast cancer awareness month and due to the long standing partnership KitchenAid has with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, this community of food bloggers are working together to commemorate the cause. In fact, KitchenAid has helped the foundation raise over 9 million dollars for breast cancer research to date and it doesn’t stop there. We were asked to help spread the awareness through their Cook for the Cure and Pass The Plate Programs, and it’s something we are honored to be a part of.
This Pass the Plate program partnered with Chef Jacques Pepin to create a unique design on a Villeroy and Boch plate. We’ve registered the plate and made a special dish, serving on the unique plate and then passing it on to a friend. Our friend will then register the plate and pass it on again. Each time someone registers the plate, $5 is donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
The chain of love, cooking and sharing continues. Hopefully, forever. This is how amazing this project is.
For our dish, we made a new variation off our favorite garlic knots that’s also in our cookbook Bountiful. As the holidays start to sneak up on us, we’re all preparing to plan our menus for our loved ones. These garlic knots are the perfect addition to the holiday table.
Homemade garlic knots are loved by all and with the addition of parmesean cheese on top, it’ll leave everyone licking their fingers to the very last bite. They’re that good.
Better yet, try dipping these garlic knots in some gravy and it’s a meal in it self. It’s the perfect holiday side dish to celebrate the ones you love and to remember those who have lost their lives to breast cancer.
And for the rest of you, KitchenAid is giving away one of these plates for you to share and pass the love too!
The Giveaway has ended. Thank you for sharing your stories. The winner is #21 Corrine! For the rest of you, please continue to spread the word about this Pass the Plate program and help with the fight against breast cancer.
Thank you all for being a part of this and working together to help spread the love.

Yield: about 40 knots
Total Time: 4 hours
There are two ways we usually roll out the knots, pinching off and weighing little balls of to roll into the knots; or rolling the dough out, cutting it into even strips, rolling the strips into logs and twisting the logs into the knots. In a prior garlic knot post we described the latter, however the pinch and ball method is our favorite. Whichever method you choose, the knots' texture will benefit from not over handling. The less you knead, press, and smash the dough, the better. For other variations try our classic Garlic Knots or our Spicy Garlic Knots.
Preheat oven to 400° F
Best served warm, but still good when at room temp.
