How to Roast Garlic Without Aluminum Foil

How to Roast Garlic Without Aluminum Foil - Learn how to easily roast garlic without wrapping it in aluminum foil!
I love roasted garlic. It's so mild yet flavorful and almost buttery-smooth.

What I don't love is wrapping my food in aluminum foil. It just creeps me out. But most roasted garlic recipes instruct you to do just that. For the longest time I figured there was no way out of it. Until I started experimenting with different techniques...

There's just something about bringing a care package to a loved one that makes you feel happy. The knowledge that you've made someone's evening that much easier is so satisfying. So when Bob's Red Mill gave me the challenge to create a gift basket for someone special, of course I jumped at the idea!

I decided to make a spaghetti dinner care package for my little sister. Not only does she take care of her little girl (who's not quite a year old) all day long, she also volunteers at a local pregnancy care center once a week.

A delicious, fresh-from-the-oven treat is the perfect addition to a gift basket. One of the most enduring ways to show that you care about someone is to bake something special for them. Baking requires time, skill and love. It's a way of saying, "I appreciate you enough to give of my energy," without uttering a word.
