Alright, gather close… I have a few secrets to share. When I got married, my mom told me when it was my turn to make dinner to always make sure the table was set (even if dinner was just getting started), because it makes it feel like dinner is almost ready. I have put this to the test countless times, and the verdict… it works! My husband arrives on the scene starving, and when he sees that nicely set table, he assumes dinner is almost ready and contents himself with waiting. The second secret? Delicious bread has the power to make a dinner from a spaghetti sauce bottle or a can of soup seem like a gourmet meal. Ah, the wonderful ways to hoodwink a family! :) So here is the recipe for the best of the bread “sprucing up” ideas… and believe me, it IS sinfully good.

2 loaves French Bread
1 cup parmesan cheese (grated fresh)
I cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup minced onion
Combine ingredients. Split French bread horizontally, spread mixture and sprinkle with paprika (if desired… the above picture is minus the paprika). Broil to crisp up. Enough for 2 loaves of French bread.
