It’s been a long time since we’ve had any savory supper dishes around here. I used to publish a lot of these when I initially began the site. I had meant to continue working with them, but sweets took over. It’s understandable since I adore them, but we can’t all live on cake. Sadly.

So I’m thrilled to share this recipe with you today. It’s not only tasty, but it’s the first of a series of savory recipes I’ll be serving this year. And what about you?

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
