This is a yummy garlic bread recipe! My husband loves the garlic bread they serve at restaurants. This is my version of that bread. It has a crispy, cheesy, browned top with a soft and chewy bottom.

We have an empty nest at our house. When I cook now, it is usually just for my husband Stan and I. When we are hungry for garlic bread, I only need a couple of slices not the whole loaf. When I buy a loaf of French bread, I slice it and pack it in individual plastic storage bags and freeze. It is hard for the two of us to eat the whole loaf and this way I won't have to throw away food. I hate to throw away food! I have seen the starving children in third world countries. It changes how you view things.


  1. Love the website! I will be checking often!!! I think I will be trying all the recipes you have on here so far!!! Thanks!! because I am in a cooking slump...

  2. Thanks JeriLyn! Please tell all your friends about the site.

  3. Hey Linda, great site! Paul and I have made our garlic bread with garlic powder and parmesan for many years. It is wonderful and much better than the standard with just butter and garlic salt. Looks like we have similar tastes. But in our house Paul does most of the cooking. I'm the taster.

  4. Being the taster is the best job in the world! If Paul does the cooking, do you do the clean up?

  5. Yes I do! I clean as he cooks. I used to complain until he told me that he would stop cooking unless I stopped complaining. So I stopped complaining and started cleaning. Works for me.

  6. I made it and it turned out wonderful! Im going to follow this blog from now on :D
