Happy Friday friends and family! We're THIS CLOSE to March-did February seem to go by very quickly for you too? There were weddings, visitors, regular every day life, and the odd move night here and there, but we got up this morning and thought, "WOW! That was fast!"
So now it's officially going to be spring (here in Central Florida it's been spring for weeks) and we've got the fever. Lot's of editing lined up, (those things just don't take care of themselves) weddings on the horizons, training, (we're always learning) and a new veggie garden to plant. Photographers-we're just like you! This year we're going to try garlic, because the whole family is a big fan. We go through a lot of garlic. Why by frozen garlic bread when you can make your own delicious loaf? (We warned you we might talk about food!)
Here's a delicious recipe:
4 garlic cloves
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 baguette (24 inches long), halved crosswise, then lengthwise
Coarse salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make garlic paste: Coarsely chop garlic, and gather into a pile. Sprinkle generously with coarse salt. Place flat side of knife blade on top of garlic, with sharp side of blade away from you; press down firmly while pulling knife toward you. Repeat until a paste forms.
Combine garlic paste, butter, and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Brush butter mixture on cut sides of bread; sandwich together. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until heated through and crispy, about 12 minutes. Slice and serve.
