Hosting a party is always the most hectic thing for me. Yes ofcourse I consider it more tedious than an over time job. I always act like a lousy ass and which results in lousy parties. The fact is party means a loads of things need to be done perfectly on time. Most important thing is the food. Then comes rest like music, ambiance Ohh no no I was so damn wrong. The most important thing is the People and your motto is to make them happy and warm.
Anyways I always find it’s difficult to please children and adults happy at the same time with the same food. So I always keep looking for a suitable appetizer whenever possible or whenever I’m in need. Few days back when I was in a desperate need of this kind of appetizer and I could find nothing to suit children. Out of my frustration I actually planned to bake some garlic breads with cheese toppings. I know it is as common as milk but as a matter of fact it is as popular as chocolate. But surprisingly it came out as a big hit with fresh veggies and loads of cheese. So I thought of gathering it together and placing it in my blog too.
Here is the 10 mins Cheese Garlic Bread Recipe.
