who loves garlic???

I DO! And I love onions too! In fact, I love eating spices and stuff that makes your breathe smell foul after, hehe! :p Today's recipe is Garlic Sauce -- perfect as bread or pizza dip! I also added some tips from SecretRecipes.net in using garlic to flavor your cooking. Enjoy!


1/4 - 1/2 stick margarine or butter
1/2 Tablespoon Garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Melt butter in the microwave (about 30 seconds).
Put in salt and garlic powder (to taste).
Microwave for 5 seconds longer.


- ONE finely minced or pressed raw garlic clove releases MORE flavor than a dozen cooked whole cloves. So always chop your garlic!

- If you want a sweet, almost nutty flavor (perfect for pastries & ice cream) from garlic with no pungency whatsoever, cook the cloves whole. Don't mince!

- When sauteing garlic, be very careful not to burn it. The flavor will be intensely bitter and you'll have to start over.
