I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

"Roasted" Garlic in the Microwave

My daughter asked if we could have garlic mashed potatoes for Christmas dinner this year. I wanted to do a test run today but didn't have the time to roast the garlic.

No problem! Microwave saves the day!

Just slice the top off a head of garlic, place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add 1  1/2 tbsps of water to the bowl and cover with a saucer.

Microwave on low for 3 minutes, take it out and check softness with a fork. Microwave another 3 minutes then by 1 minute increments until you achieve the desired softness.  You could broil the top if you want a golden roasted garlic but I didn't mind it like this. 

So just squeezed out the cloves and mashed them with the potatoes, a bit of milk and butter.

I may never roast garlic in the oven again!
