Her garlic sauce is insanely delicious.  There’s something about the acidity of the lemon combined with the kick of all the garlic and warmth of the red pepper: MAGIC!  Let’s take a moment to mention all the ways this sauce can be used: drizzle it over roasted veggies, use it as a vinaigrette on salads, pour it over roasted salmon or chicken… the options are limitless.  Gaby has recently partnered with Williams Sonoma to offer us her Go-To Seasoning; a key component of her sauce.  Visit her site for the Garlic Crack Sauce recipe and make sure to check out her other content.  It may be tough to tear yourself away.
