My name is Carolyn. I am new. I enjoy cooking and collecting recipes. The recipes which I collect I generally convert the onions and garlic into onion salt and garlic salt, but I have a hard time doing this when the recipe calls for it the be put in at the beginning of the recipe, like when it is making a roux. The reason I need to convert onions and garlic to either onion salt or powder and to garlic salt or powder is I am allergic to the real items. So I am hoping this site will help me in converting these items to the right measurements for the recipes that call for them at the beginning of a recipe because there are quite a few recipes that I like out there that I would like to make.
