Morning ladies of Beach Cottage Land, all I can say to you this morning is easy roast garlic recipe and I love it and you will too.

I have been making this in some for or another for a long time, the first time I made it was years and years ago back in the Old Country and it is very easy to do a similar thing with the aid of a chicken – the forty garlic chicken recipe I like is here (check out this post from two years ago and how my food pics have changed a bit!)




The best thing about this is that it is throw-it-in-the-oven-and-then-go-get-in-the-bath friendly…


…you already know I love those kinda recipes…but I still want things to look impressive and taste impressive, this does both of those in one single swoop of beautiful heady garlic-ness..

It’s as super easy as grabbing a few heads of garlic, slicing off their tops, drizzling on some olive oil and wrapping ‘em up in baking paper…


Then just throw them in the oven while you go and have a bath…

The best thing though about this is that it’s surprisingly store-cupboard friendly…I don’t know about you but I always have a stash of garlic in the bottom of the fridge and life would not be life in Beach Cottage land without some Turkish or some kind of flat bread in the freezer.


Oh and today I am trying out a new recipe thing here – I have been asked MANY times on this blog to make a little handy-dandy-I’m-your-man recipe card printable thingy – have I ever gotten around to it?  That would be a no.

Soooooo today showcasing one ;-) you can see it below, you should be able to print it off if you want to or read it easily on a tablet – let me know what you think, if it’s easy to work with it and if you like it

…oh and I tell you pop this garlic into your oven and tell yourself as you are lathering lashings of it onto bread that it is good to stop you from getting colds and just don’t worry about your thighs.

See you soon.
