Garlic

I love garlic, in fact, it’s probably my favorite spice to cook with.  And I recently learned that April 19th is National Garlic Day.  So garlic had to be my G post during the A to Z Challenge.  I tend to buy garlic in bulk because we use so much of it, and the garlic press is one of the most used tools in my kitchen. 
I love garlic because not only is it delicious, it’s so versatile and works in so many different dishes and types of cuisines.  There also seem to be quite a few studies confirming some pretty impressive health benefits of garlic.  So it’s delicious, versatile, and good for you. 
I know we’ll be eating garlic on the 19th in celebration of National Garlic Day.  Here are a couple of garlic recipes for you in case you’re looking for a way to enjoy garlic too:
So what about you?  Do you enjoy garlic?

  1. I still remember from many years ago what a relief I felt when my boyfriend/future husband told me how much he loved garlic in his food. I knew then he was the one. πŸ˜†

  4. It doesn't sit well with my wife, and she's Italian.

    I like it in many dishes.

  5. I love garlic. But I'm not great at cooking with it, so I'll have to buy stuff with garlic already in it.

  7. My Gran used to make a creamy garlic and mushroom soup that was just outrageously good. We love our garlic as well!

  8. I use garlic a fair amount too. These days, I buy it already peeled. Saves a lot of hassle. I put it in a Mason jar, add a piece of paper towel, and it keeps in the fridge for ever.
