There is nothing like fresh, warm bread. And when it comes to my family and friends garlic is always a good choice. I just love the idea of pull apart breads. I like to make differently sized balls so everybody can pluck out a piece of their liking. This recipe is easy to adapt to your liking. Just change the spices or the cheese.
