Overwhelming garlic taste due to the big garlic head I used but thankfully my mother loves garlic so she said it was perfect lol.
Simply delicious. Just follow the directions and you cannot go wrong.

Very good. I didn't measure just eyeballed it. Came out perfect, I have to thank you for the tip not to over whip. I have done that in the past. It was perfect.

:) just like in the restaurant last night. My garlic came out a little off coloured because it wasn't fresh.

My daughters loved it. The garlic added more depth with fresh chives. Will dedicatedly com again. Might toast garlic with fresh herbs.

Absolutely delicious. It was the first time I roasted garlic and I think that's what made the recipe. Definitely a keeper.
