We bid you welcome, Dracula


Bram Stoker's garlic goth blockbuster Dracula was published on this date in 1897. Stoker was born in Dublin and never visited the legendary impaler's home, Transylvania, so I've included a recipe for garlic bread topped with Dubliner cheese. (Dubliner is a sharp cheddar-like cheese with a touch of Swiss cheese nuttiness and Parmesan bite.)

Non-garlic related trivia: Stoker was cremated and his ashes are in an urn at Golder's Green Crematorium, London's first crematorium. Visitors need an escort to see the urn so it's protected from vandals. Other noteworthy residents include Sigmund Freud, Keith Moon, Mark Bolan (founder of T. Rex) and Peter Sellars. This being London, a sign next to a War Memorial encourages guests to visit the crematorium's tea room.

Dubliner Garlic Bread

One French Baguette
One stick (8 T.) unsalted butter
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 c. grated Dubliner cheese *
Freshly ground black pepper


Split the baguette in half length-wise and spread the garlic butter on both
sides of the bread.
 Sprinkle with the grated Dubliner cheese.
 Place on a cookie sheet and cover with foil; bake in a pre-heated oven 350 degrees F. for about 10 minutes until heated through.
 Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper. Cut into slices and serve hot.

This recipe sounds so tasty, as do so many you've posted! I'm wondering if this garlic bread will help scare away all those dreadful 'Twilight' films?

There's no right or wrong approach to make a website. We have now web sites connected with a particular specialized niche and in addition web pages about totally not related products and solutions. It’s genuinely up to you which often way you want to proceed. One matter though…you recommend Digg, why should you spend funds creating a .org.. I’ve often wondered if this type of was important. A remedy could be amazing!
