Garlic Butter Buns

It has been too long a break it seems, that I have been away from this space. A new year, a new start. While everyone has been baking and cooking up storms, I have been keeping myself away from the kitchen. Knee problem is back to haunt me again, and I cannot afford to stand around too much. Better be a good girl and start slow this year!

For a start, I made these garlic bread. I love how my kitchen smells of garlic when it was being baked in the oven. Woooot!

  1. Janice, I love garlic butter buns or anything garlicky! Hope your knees are better now.
