Lemon Cakebox Cookies with Honey Lemon Glaze



Growing up, I went to the movies with my dad nearly every weekend, and in law school my buddy Omar and I continued the tradition.  Sadly, hubby doesn't see the magic of sitting in a theater, so movie weekends went by the wayside after we were married.  But as genetics will do, it turns out my kids love movies just like me!  



Big Hero 6 Party Ideas




We've worked out an awesome compromise - since it's hard to wrangle (and pay for!) five small kids in a theater, we bought a projector and do movie nights at home, usually on our big patio.  We order pizza and make movie inspired snacks and treats.  So, naturally I was completely stoked when the opportunity to work with Disney's Big Hero 6 came about!

The characters in Big Hero 6 both look like, and are named after food, so we made Lemon Cakebox Cookies with Honey Lemon Glaze after Honey Lemon, Baymax marshmallows (for roasting at the table!), and Wasabi Pea snack mix after Wasabi.  I grabbed the ingredients and movie on a quick run to Target, threw in some pennants, character inspired balloons - and we had ourselves an instant Big Hero 6 movie screening party!

Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Cloves




Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Cloves


There are about a billion and one recipes on the internet for Roasted Garlic in the slow cooker, but they all involve full heads of garlic being roasted.  Now mind you, I love a head of roasted garlic as much as the next gal - but sometimes I want to do a mess of individual garlic cloves at once.  

I like to buy the big bags of peeled fresh garlic from the market (or the super big bags from Costco), and roast it all up ahead of time.  Often I'll use my oven, but sometimes I want to leave the house for a bit without worrying that I'll forget to come home in time and burn the place down.   "Only you can prevent kitchen fires."

So, I shoveled a bunch of cloves into my big old crock pot, slathered them with olive oil, and went about my business.  Admittedly a touch worried that I had just laid waste to a metric ton of garlic. 

Alas, my worries were in vain.  Delicious roasted garlic awaited my upon my return.  Yum!  I portioned it out, tossed some in the freezer, and some in the fridge (and some on my toast), and went about the rest of my day.  When I was ready to make it again (and take some pictures for you gorgeous people), I popped a pile into my teeny tiny cast iron, and threw it to the middle rack of the oven with the broiler on for a few minutes.

Perfecto.

Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Cloves, Ingredients:

  • Peeled garlic cloves
  • Olive oil


Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Cloves, Directions:

  1. Lightly grease the edges and bottom of your slow cooker with olive oil (and/or you can line your slow cooker with foil).  
  2. Toss in garlic cloves, and drizzle with more olive oil.  The cloves don't need to be in a single layer, but probably not higher than a few inches, or you may have uneven cooking. (Ask me how I know.  Oops.)
  3. Cook on low for 6+ hours, until cloves reach your desired consistency.  You can stir a few times toward the end to get them evenly browned, as well.
  4. Grab some Crusty French Bread and ENJOY!
