Blue Eyes Willow's Note:
With the winter being all wonky this year I wanted something to boost my immunity. I also love garlic for more than its anti-viral, antibiotic properties. I roasted half of the garlic but it should turn out well to use all roasted or un-roasted. Use home-made chicken stock for more nourishing benefits.
