Posted by Sydney Rea on Nov 8, 2017 3:00:00 PM

Posted by Sydney Rea on Sep 6, 2017 3:30:00 PM

Oh, how I love roasted garlic. I'm talking about the golden brown, melt-in-your-mouth garlic. The easily spreadable, perfect addition to just about anything garlic. It's an essential ingredient in most of my dishes and for good reason.
