I have to give all the credit for this brilliant idea to my good friend Gill.  She showed me how to make my own garlic bread and I have never bought shop-made since.  This bread is just as quick as pre-made, much more tasty and much cheaper and so is a complete no-brainer!!


Part-Baked Baguette(s)
Garlic Cloves
Butter (I recommend real butter rather than marg or spread), room temperature


I use 1 garlic clove and 1oz (25g) butter per baguette,  Obviously if you prefer it to be more garlicky just add more.

  • Preheat oven to 180C/fan 170C/ Gas 6.
  • Add  butter to Prep Bowl, Press garlic clove using Garlic Press into the prep bowl. Use Spreader to mix them together.

  • Slice the baguette using Bread Knife.  Try not to slice all the way through keeping the loaf in tact (not always possible but worth it for aesthetics later!)

    Slice the bread, trying not to go all the way through.

  • Carefully spread the generously between each slice.

  • Place baguette(s) on Stoneware (Pictured here is a Medium Round Stone with Handles but any will do).  Put Stoneware in oven.

Pampered Chef Hot Pizza Dip

Apologies for not posting anything recently, I was away working at Glastonbury for the weekend and got a little bit distracted!!  BUT, I have been really wanting to share this amazing recipe with you as soon as I could.

Personally, I LOVE cheese and its definitely my treat food!  The minute I saw this recipe I knew that it would be right up my street. I wasn’t, however, prepared for just how FANTASTIC it would taste!!  We often have pizza for Saturday tea and I did think about just having this but as it was our first time of trying it I decided to make this and have a pizza as back up if the family didn’t like it.

Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how yummy this is!!  So much so that last night I made it for our Pampered Chef team meeting.  And everyone loved it!!  Someone even said “It’s like having Pizza without the bother of the dough”!!

My only problem with this recipe is sharing and the potential for me to eat far too many calories!!!  But we WILL be making this again… and soon!!!!  Do let me know how you get on with it!!
