Roasted Garlic Baked Brie

daisi - December 10, 2014

As I mentioned on instagram, I’ve made this brie several times now but I always fail to get an after picture. I blame the vultures that are usually hovering and waiting for it to come out of the oven. And by vultures, I mean family (love you guys). But seriously, this brie is simple and delicious. Just takes a little time to roast the garlic …

roasted veggie tacos

I saw this recipe in Martha Stewart Living and immediately thought it sounded amazing. Roasted vegetables on a taco, why had I never thought of this before? It’s simple enough: roast veggies, slap them on a tortilla. Her recipe was for portobello and zucchini tacos and don’t they look amazing? I didn’t just stop at zucchini and portobellos though.
