Romance is when you BOTH eat too much garlic.

I cooked dinner for Jason and I tonight for Valentine’s Day–gyro, onion, and red pepper pizza with a spicy garlic white sauce, garlic rolls, red wine, and finished with tiny cheesecakes from The Confectional–you know, low carb–and let me tell you, the garlic rolls may in fact be the best thing I’ve ever, ever made. Crusty on the top, warm and soft and garlicky in the middle, and with a beautiful buttery crust on the bottom, they are a vampire-hater’s dream. My breath alone should be able to ward off the undead at this point.

They’re pretty simple, too. I’ll definitely be making them again.

      They were SUPER nice. I’d bought a groupon for there in March last year and just finally used it–and I’m definitely going to be back!

    They are so pretty. If they taste half as good as they look, I’ll stuff myself with them .

      IMO they taste better than they look.

        Then they must taste like unicorn steaks because they look great!

    Mmmm I’m sure I would love these since I always eat enough garlic to keep those sparkly vampires away. πŸ™‚

      If we all do our part, garlic-wise, those sparkly vampires will eventually go extinct–hurrah!

    Great idea! My boyfriend has gotten feverish about baking and there’s currently 5 pounds of dough rising in our kitchen, so I might adapt some to this end!

    1. admin February 16, 2011 at 4:24 am

      Nice! Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread.
