Hi everyone! It just occurred to me the other day that not everyone knows how to peel garlic cloves from a head of garlic. And seeing as though I love garlic, and I’m sure you do, too, I figured I should let you in on the secret. So…here’s a short video on how to peel garlic cloves, followed by the Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic recipe that I used those delicious slices of garlic for.

And here’s the recipe for the Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic along with the picture that I promised in the video. I have to say, these are AH-MAAA-ZIIING!! Seriously, they’re like candy. Healthy candy filled with antioxidants. Honestly…I had to put them away or I was going to eat the entire thing.

Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic


  • 4 c. grape tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place aluminum foil over a baking sheet.
  2. Place tomatoes and garlic into a mixing bowl, Drizzle with olive oil, and toss until evenly coated. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then spread evenly onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the grape tomatoes in the preheated oven until the skins pop and start to brown, about 17-23 minutes.
