How to peel a whole Head of Garlic

My Recipes
Spaghetti Squash & Bacon Lasagna
we *actually* had a family dinner @minimalistbaker 's spaghetti squash lasagna comes through for the win...but with real Parm & liiittle bacon, so not quite vegan but oh so good #muirglen
Chicken And Quinoa In Tomato Sauce Bake
even though I just tossed a bunch of leftovers (quinoa/roasted peppers, broccoli & zucchini/shredded chicken) with @heidijswanson 's 5 min tomato sauce, I'm still gonna give myself a little pat on the back for having dinner out of the oven and ready BEFORE 6pm.
Spaghetti With Olives And Capers
Pasta night is my favorite night of the week and cooking my own sauce makes it just a bit more special @muirglen! spaghetti with capers & kalamata olives
Sauced Soba Noodles With Kale And Brussels Sprouts
I've been devouring these slurpy, sauced soba noodles with kale, Brussels sprouts & crispy tofu (+ #furikake) all week. recipe #ontheblog | in profile
warm ‘n cozy breakfast for this rainy Sunday • { #vegan sweet potato French toast casserole with lingonberry jam, powdered sugar & bourbon maple syrup- @blissfulbasil } #f52comfort
dinner tonight because when the hubby’s not home, why cook? and I’m pretty sure my kid was happy with his olives and cereal 🤷🏼‍♀️ #randomtoddlerdinners • {#multigrain bread + a peppery whipped ricotta/goat cheese situation + avo + cucumbers + chili oil + flaky salt 🍞🥒🌶🥑}
even though October is over, it’s still pumpkin season, right? this #pumpkin freezer fudge might be too dangerous to keep around this pregnant lady 🤰🏼🍫🎃 { adapted from @rachaelsgoodeats } • added crushed @annieshomegrown cinnamon graham crackers to the chocolate layer | replaced 1/2c of the sun butter with pumpkin purée because my sun butter was too salty | added a generous swirl of apple cider caramel to the top 😋
a special Halloween breakfast of stuffed French toast with a little cream cheese, @bonnemaman_us raspberry jam & of course maple syrup on top. and my toddler just spit it out. a hard-boiled egg it is 🙄 #mightaswelleathistoo #🤰🏼 #toddlerlife #morningslikethese
