My son loves garlic bread.
It all started when he was sitting beside me when I was reading a magazine.
He pointed to a garlic bread recipe and asked me to make it.
I didn’t make it the first time, as I wasn’t sure the picky eater would actually eat it, so I went out to the store and bought a loaf of garlic bread, you know the ones wrapped nicely in an aluminum foil kind of package and you just bake it in the oven.
He was instantly in love and requested that I make the garlic bread instead of buying.
Without a handy recipe, I turned to Food Network and found a recipe from Ina Garten with a ton of great reviews.
I just had to make it.
And since then, this garlic bread recipe has been a staple in my family.
Whenever little G is having a protein dish (chicken, beef or fish), I would make sure that I make garlic bread so he can get some carbohydrates for a balanced meal.
This is a super easy recipe, takes only about 10 minutes to prep and bake it in the oven.
While I kind of like the store-bought convenient garlic bread, making it from scratch at home gives me a complete sense of satisfaction.
And the satisfaction of slicing the fresh-off-the-oven garlic bread is simply fulfilling.
They are what I make at home.
