Anyone who knew me when I was young would probably not believe that eventually I’d be a food writer and adventurer. I was a pretty picky child and wasn’t real good at trying new things or eating a wide variety of foods. This was a huge shame because my mom is seriously one of the best cooks ever. She’s not only a great cook in general, but she also is able to turn healthy foods into incredibly tasty creations. I wouldn’t always eat them, though.
One such wonderful meal (or appetizer, rather) was her roasted garlic. It took years for me to actually try the roasted garlic because I insisted it would be “super gross” based specifically on the smell (which now, of course, I find wonderful). But eventually, I tried it and decided it was awesome….
