Baker's Banter? It's a fabulously informative blog written by the wonderful bakers at King Arthur Flour. I've long been a fan of King Arthur. It's where I found the wondrous Fiori di Sicilia and where I order my parchment sheets. Anyway, Baker's Banter always has incredibly delicious recipes, like these no-knead garlic-cheese flatbread toasts that I served as dippers with my spinach and artichoke dip. It's one of my go-to appetizers as it's so quick to toss together, and everyone usually loves it. My version has more spinach than other recipes I've eaten, so if you prefer a creamier version, reduce the amount of spinach or add more cheese. Hope you enjoy it!
