So Pretty, Yet So Deceptive

Okay, I’m gonna be honest with you.  This recipe looks and smells way better than it tastes.
Just mixing the dough made my mouth water.  Then as my niece, Kathryn, and I pulled the bread out of the oven, we may have drooled a little bit.  And as I cut the first slice and steam poured out from the bread, our stomachs growled.
We were so excited to dive into it, but it was totally lackluster.  Kinda boring.  Just bland.
I was expecting a warm garlic flavor with a punch from the sharp cheddar cheese.  We didn’t get any of that.
Give this a try if you want, but maybe play with the flavors a bit.  Definitely not my favorite recipe.
