So the other day I cooked for my friends and I used garlic in one of the side dishes. Well, what you'll learn about me is that I find out what certain herbs and spices are good for and use it, a lot. At any time that you may find me cooking, know that I am using garlic, all the time. She went on to tell me that she could taste it significantly, but I guess I've gotten so used to it that I don't even realize the taste of it in my food, or other foods for that matter.
Lets discuss a bit of why I love garlic and why you should too.
