As children, we obtain certain beliefs. We deem these beliefs as true, unless otherwise proven by our adult life. This could be regarding the meaning of life, Santa Clause, or in my case, that bread is the devil. Raised in the notion that a single slice can balloon you into another size, kill the rest your appetite or maybe just send you (or a loved one) off into the fire pits off hell, I kept far away from the stuff. Sure, I had a bite here or there, but it was never a spotlight of the meal or a time to celebrate the amazing food group. No, it was more of a guilty pleasure to be never spoken about.
As an adult and pseudo vegetarian, I am happy to announce shedding my old Atkins-like dietary delusions and come to terms with the fact that bread and other carbohydrates are necessary part of a daily diet. And with this concept, I now truly give myself the privilege to enjoy all that bread has to offer. And what a privilege it is!
This recipe is so easy I am too embarrassed to even call it a recipe. It takes about 30 seconds and uses virtual no ingredients. The only reason I give myself license to even talk about it is because it does not TASTE like a 30 second dish. It tastes like homemade Italian garlic bread and no one can argue otherwise. Ilya and I loved it so much we had it for three days straight, and we won’t even apologies for it.
