I wish I could tell you that I have loved garlic all my life, but seriously I don’t think I really began my love affair with food until about 10 years ago. When your first date with your husband takes place at a sushi joint, and you have your dinner reception at Mesa Grill… well it starts to set precedence of a second relationship with food. A relationship that caused me to gain 38 pounds after my reception. Even though I am currently taking a journey with Weight Watchers, there are herbs and spices that can make the most bland tasting foods into a fiesta in your mouth. One of those herbs capable of that is Garlic!
Garlic has been used for thousands of years in both culinary and theraputic uses.

I love garlic! And I didn’t know that there are so many nice healthy effects from eating it. I did know that it was good for the heart though.
Thank you for the recipe and I am going to try it.
