On Sunday we had our friends Cody and Breaelle over for dinner. I'm not a great cook, but things were going alright in the kitchen...

until I decided to make some garlic bread.

Within 90 seconds of placing it in the oven, thick black smoke was spewing through the oven vent. We opened the oven to discover both halves of the loaf covered in flames.

Cody saved the day. He grabbed the flaming bread and ran it out to the snow.

The worst part (besides a house filled with smoke, a blaring smoke detector, and near death by bread fire)? Christian and Cody still ate the rock-hard, pitch-black, charred-to-bits bread!

Who knew bread could be so dangerous?


  1. haha, I ALWAYS burn garlic bread too, I dont know why it is so hard, but it is, so you are not alone!!

  2. The trick to garlic bread is to put the oven on broil, but keep the door propped open a few inches. It only takes a few minutes to make the top crisp, but I stay by the oven to check it regularly.
