I use this instead of a sauce for roast beef and steaks. It can be made ahead of time, so prep can be cut at dinner time. It will last for several days in the refrigerator.

Sometimes the basics are the best! I've used this simple recipe for years to make garlic bread, and any leftovers go great on barbequed steaks, pasta, rice or potatoes. You can use any butter or margarine you like. Also, fresh or minced garlic in a jar works well. Adjust the amount of garlic to your taste.

Honey butter is very good on homemade white bread. I ate and made this many times as a girl. You may also use peanut butter instead of butter. Delicious!

Best homemade Nutella® spread ever with no preservatives. You can add honey and cocoa powder to taste a bit more or less, not essential.

This makes a great condiment at holiday brunches. I made this for a Mother's Day get-together to serve with toast and french toast, and the mothers in my life enjoyed it enough to ask for it as a Christmas present. Serve with toast, rolls, biscuits, etc. Yummy on pancakes, waffles, and croissants!
