How To Roast Garlic © Jeanette's Healthy Living

Learn how to roast garlic - it's so easy and makes a wonderful condiment or flavor booster in recipes. I remember the first time I ate roasted garlic - it was served with fresh bread at a restaurant. Buttery and sweet, it was smooth and silky, with a mellow garlic flavor. I was hooked and could probably eat an entire bulb by myself. Just don't come too close if I do that. Roasting garlic at home is so easy. All you need are whole garlic bulbs and a sharp knife. Remove any loose skin … [Continue Reading...]

These Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Oat Pancakes freeze well. Clearly I'm having trouble adjusting to cooking for a family of three this Fall, from a family of six this past Summer, including 3 big male eaters.

This was all for one of the twin's last dinner at home before we dropped him off at college. The funny thing is that when my son was … [Continue Reading...]

Before we returned home from that trip, I asked one of our local hosts for a few … [Continue Reading...]
