Kitchen Basics: Roasted Garlic

One of my favorite kitchen basics, roasted garlic is one of those foods that you won’t be able to live without once you’ve made it. You can roast several garlic heads and use them at once, or keep them in the fridge or freezer for later. Roasted garlic can be used on pasta, spread on […]
