If you’ve been with me here since Day 1 (way back in 2008!), you’ll know that my mom, Noni, is the inspiration behind everything I do, both as a chef and as a mom.

She is the ultimate blend of home cook-slash-superstar mother of three, and I can think of no better example of her dual superpower roles than the time she drove the carpool to my field hockey game while dishing out hot apples turnovers à la mode from the front seat while stopped at red lights.

True story.

The woman served pastries and ice cream to a Suburban full of hungry middle school girls from the driver seat. Need I say more? Noni can do it all.

This recipe is just another one of her creations that transforms an ordinary dish into something so spectacular you wonder why you ever made garlic bread any other way to begin with.

This isn’t your average garlic bread. It’s made with a secret ingredient that’s the key to the creaminess.
