Garlic and Parmesan Bread  
So easy, but it's the best garlic bread you'll have in your life. Be warned - as tempting as it is, don't try to scoff too much of it. It's very rich and you'll feel very ill.

It's from a Donna Hay magazine, and all you do is get a nice crusty loaf of bread - a sourdough, panna di casa, ciabatta, etc., and cut it into slices about 1cm thick.

Melt 125g butter in a saucepan with 2 or 3 crushed garlic cloves and season with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Remove from the heat and add 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan and a tablespoon or two of finely chopped fresh basil. The cheese will melt a bit and go gluggy, but that's okay. Paint each slice with the mixture on both sides - don't be stingy! - and form it back into a loaf on a big piece of foil. Wrap it all up tightly in the foil and then bake in a pre-heated hot oven (about 200 degrees) for 25-30 mins. I usually open the foil up for the last 5 minutes to crisp it up a bit.

Get thee away from me Satan.

That sounds good. Too good. I'm going to pretend I never read this post. What post? See...

Hey there. Happy New Year and all that jazz! I have a question for you. I think I copied a wonton recipe from this site recently and I just passed it on to Pen. Now she is having a dilema...where do you buy the wrappers from? She couldn't find them.

Hi, Kylie!

Where is Penny? She came back and posted for a few days and then stopped again!

I buy wonton wrappers at the local Asian grocer. They're usually in the fridge section.

Thanks Dee! Pen asked me to pass on that she will start posting again.
