A lot of people rave over the smell of warm apple pie permeating their kitchen.  It’s pretty great, but in a “been there, done that” kind of way.

Let’s be rebels. Roast some garlic instead.  Its smell is equally aromatic but the finished product is much more hip-friendly, especially when we puree it with some cauliflower and turn it into soup.  Now that is just a healthy addiction waiting to happen.  (And it’ll make our kitchens smell like an Italian bistro.  Bet an apple pie can’t do that!)
