Cooking with citrus is so much fun. It brings so much brightness to any dish. The homemade grapefruit dressing for the Asian slaw in this dressing came out so yummy!

Garlic Lovers Soup #slowcooker

What I love about this soup is that it highlights the sweetness that garlic can take on. Using the garlic jelly does help with this but I have found that when you slow cook garlic, it tends to gain more of the sweet quality from garlic than the sharp quality. This simple and delectable soupContinue reading “Garlic Lovers Soup #slowcooker”
