Roasted Garlic Rosemary Butter:

  1. Cook the garlic in olive oil in a skillet on the stove for 15 to 20 minutes, or until soft and fragrant. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add garlic-olive oil mixture and all remaining ingredients to a food processor and process until thoroughly combined. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Balsamic Mint Vinaigrette:
