One of the activities that your kids will surely enjoy is to let them help you in preparing some fun and exciting summer refreshments. It allows them to learn new stuff while satisfying your family’s cravings for cool drinks and snacks, as a way to beat the summer heat.

If there’s one thing that kids will truly enjoy this summer, it’s the delectable corn ice pops. These are easy to make, especially with the easy-to-open Mega Prime corn can.

The original recipe that we saw is using Mega Prime Cream Style Corn but my kids preferred to use Mega Prime Whole Kernel Corn instead because they want it more chunky to bite.

#Recipe of the Day: Garlic Toast or Garlic Bread

Recipe of the day:

GARLIC TOAST or GARLIC BREAD

My very long weekend is finally over. B A C K  T O  W O R K. . .

So, today, I’ll teach you a very quick to prepare snack or side dish that you can make ahead suitable for your busy schedule.

I like garlic toast or garlic bread because you can even use a leftover bread to make one. You can also prepare as many pieces as you like and store them in the freezer (and then toast them in the oven before eating).

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup butter (softened)
  • ¹⁄³ cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley (fresh or dried)
  • ½ teaspoon teaspoon garlic powder
  • French bread (cut into 1 inch slices) (or any leftover bread)

 

Let’s get started!

 

  1. Mix butter, cheese, parsley and garlic powder in a bowl.
  2. Arrange your bread slices in your oven pan with baking sheet.
  3. Spread each slices with garlic mixture.
  4. Cover with GLAD cling wrap and put it in the freezer until the bread becomes hard (about 1 hour).
  5. Get enough pieces that you will eat, transfer the rest in GLAD resealable plastic bag and put them back in the freezer.
  6. Preheat oven for 10 minutes (prior to getting the bread from the freezer).
  7. Arrange desired number of slices (butter-side up) on the baking pan (with wax paper or baking sheet).
  8. Bake until bread is toasted and butter has melted (around 5 minutes).
