This box was a great one to put together, working with the various producers of this box have been absolutely wonderful.
I like the idea of a spicy box for February. Incorporating all of the ingredients (minus the cookies of course) into a really delicious meal of fry bread chicken tacos sounds about perfect.

How To Roast Garlic in the Oven
1 or more heads of garlic
Heat the oven to 400°F:Set a rack in the middle position.
Peel (most of) the paper off the garlic: Use your fingers to peel away all the loose, papery, outer layers around the head of garlic. Leave the head itself intact with all the cloves connected.
Trim the top off the head of garlic: Trim about 1/4 inch off the top of the head of garlic to expose the tops of the garlic cloves.
Drizzle with olive oil: Drizzle 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive oil over the exposed surface of the garlic, letting the oil sink down into the cloves.
Wrap in foil and bake: Wrap the garlic in aluminum foil and roast in the oven for 40 minutes.
Begin checking the garlic: After 40 minutes, begin checking the garlic. The garlic is done when a center clove is completely soft when pierced with a paring knife. Even once soft, you can continue roasting until deeply golden for a more caramelized flavor — check the garlic every 10 minutes. Exact roasting time will depend on the size of your garlic, the variety, and its age.
