More Garlic Bread!

Kids are notoriously finicky, and if you have friends with children coming for dinner, even mac & cheese isn’t a sure fire hit. You may have used penne when the kid only eats elbows, or ruined it for a cheddar cheese purist by adding Parmesan. But I’ve discovered that warm garlic bread is universally met with enthusiasm. The only possible error is not making enough. With your basic  spices on hand, it’s a fast and easy crowd-pleaser.
