I know this is supposed to be an easy recipe but I am a little confused by the garlic part. I wonder if it was meant to have a little burnt taste/smell. Mine turned out a little dark brown half ...

Ok, after making this side dish many times I have perfected it. 6 Cloves tossed in olive oil just to coat. Into the broiler for a few mins., well just till they brown. Meanwhile I peeled and ...

Different flavor for mash potatoes, but definitley good! Did have to add additional butter and milk as the potatoes were quite dry as written.... For a unique twist add the small purple flower...

These were really good. The only problem I had was this...I roasted the garlic for only 30 minutes, and it burned to a crisp...I would really recommend cutting down the roasting time. Since I ...

Yeah, this recipe is a definite keeper. It takes a little time--peeling potatoes and roasting the garlic, but the result is fabulous! I almost got carried away with my "finger sampling" as I w...
