I made that last night!

Olive oil + 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 3 anchovy fillets (melted, for those who don't know), red pepper flake, chopped basil, butter, freshly grated parmesan cheese. Tossed with spaghetti. YUMMY!

Oh my, I am so sorry there are folks out there that don't like garlic! More for us that can't live without it!

You betcha!! /But I have to go along with the garlic haters. If you don't like garlic and can taste it then it ruins the dish for you and it's NOT a good thing.

I like garlic in my dishes but I do tell my students that is a flavour and you can have as much or as little aas you want in your dish.

Here, here. I'm with ya, marigene. And onions and shallots and salt and pepper.

Some eat to live
Some live to eat.

One of my bucket list items is the Gilroy Garlic Festival!
(although I don't know if I'd do the garlic ice cream)

I love garlic. I like it roasted and smeared on good bread with olive oil. YUM.

Besides cooking I keep a sack of garlic hanging near the front entrance of my business to keep the evil spirits out. It works. We've never had an evil spirit enter our business. Not once.

Garlic keeps away vampires, skeeters and has good health benefits. On the down side my old lady won't kiss me after too much garlic.

Lefty, have you not learned anything? The secret is to make your partner eat it too. Or, at least dab alittle behind each ear! Then they can't smell it! LOL!
