Garlic-roasted Eggplant Recipe

I have to tell you that I have been having a lot of fun making recipes up as I go. Everything always sounds so good in my head and in the end, some of them even turn out.

I often cook and bake by smell. I look and/or smell what I want to make, then I smell a bunch of oils and spices until I decide what will go together well. Much like this recipe today.
