Impatient Chef

No time or energy to do it right. After work, dinner needs to get on the table before I collapse. I've gone through several incarnations as a cook. In my past life, I cooked only occasionally, made it my form of creativity, and prepared complicated, single dishes. Then, I entered family life mid-stream, with nothing in my hip pocket to rely on. I entered a family cooking crash course, learning the difference between kid-friendly food and what my husband and I liked to eat, and trying to maintain both an appealing variety and our budget. Now, I cook for my husband and myself. Thankfully, our experimental tastes are similar, he's an appreciative audience and insists on taking the lead on clean-up. :-)

Garlic Lovers Garlic Bread

Buttery, cheesy, soft yet crunchy garlic bread for garlic lovers. Baking brings the bread just to the cusp of crispiness, while retaining its softness. Broiling melts the cheese. Using pre-minced garlic from a jar and packaged, shredded cheese makes preparation a snap!
