These sound delicious, especially with the choice of cheeses! Will be trying soon. Don't have granulated garlic, but do keep roasted garlic in the freezer and will be substituting that. Thanks, Cindy!
Also, Just A Pinch friends, don't be taken in by the scam above regarding working from home. Google it and check for yourself.
