Hell yeah. Real vampires like me are deadly allergic to onions, not garlic!

Why would you want a more delicate flavour!! Garlic rules.

I've got one of these:

Makes mincing garlic easy, and no fiddly bits to wash. Just stick it in the dishwasher.

Whenever you discuss with a non-pastafarian you should put some garlic in his coffee. When he drinks that coffee without any comment you're morally obliged to tell him all about FSM.
Just start with that simple question: Why don't you mention the fact that you're drinking coffee with garlic?

If the person tells you that the coffee is horrible then you know he's at least an honest man (or woman). He might be interested in FSM.

Try this at home.

It is a refined version:
1 garlic clove: grounded
50 gram sugar
1 dl whipping cream
1 garlic clove: crushed with the back edge of a knife blade
1 dl warm strong espresso
50 gram dark chocolate [70 %]: cut into small chunks
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon flour

Place sugar and grounded garlic clove in a foodprocessor and process to a garlic-sugar. Set aside. let dry and crush. Place cream and crushed garlic clove in a small pan. Heat to just below boiling. Remove from the heat and let infuse for 30 minutes. Remove and discard garlic clove. Add warm espresso to the chocolate chunks. Stir until the chocolate is melted. Let cool. Beat egg yolks with the sugar and the flour. Place garlic-cream, chocolate-espresso and yolks in a bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Mix and stir until the mixture is thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Pour the mocca garlic creme into espresso cups and let cool. Chill the mocca garlic creme in the refrigerator. Sprinkle garlic-sugar on to mocca garlic creme and caramelize with a butane torch.

2 doz baby potatoes.

A whole head of garlic, separated, but not peeled.

Some fresh rosemary.

A glurp of olive oil

some diced bacon or pancetta.

Whack all together and bake in a hot oven.

It's not pasta, so doesn't count as a Dish of Worship, but it comes bloody close.

And the maxim is Bacon Makes Everything Better. Even Garlic.
Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with Give us pasta with a hundred fillings.

My mom makes an awesome chicken soup. I think it's called 30 clove soup. I'll post the recipe when I can get my hands on it. Of course my mom is Korean and her recipes tend to be of the "put in enough of x...and add about that much of y" sort. Nevertheless, I will attempt to translate that into the english measurement system. Apologies in advance to those of you who use metric and have to convert.
Welcome to my signature.
If you wish to read it in its entirety you will probably be disappointed. I'm not going to put anything witty or profound in here for a while. Any time you want to stop reading, be my guest. You won't find anything interesting here. I plan on adding something funny eventually, maybe when I can actually be original. Are you bored yet? Why are you even reading this?
If you skipped to this line you'll be disappointed.
There's nothing here either.

How do you know that the garlic doesn't also keep His Noodliness away and not just the rest of the vampires. Something or someone is coloring the meat sauce red!!?!!

Mmmmm....

Garlic us wonderful, and I grow my own. Three varieties.

<Elephant Garlic> is fine, but it is mild and actually a leek.

"Rev. Rowan Redbeard": those 'spring garlic shoots' are properly called 'scapes'. They are perfectly edible, and are a viable alternative to those who believe that garlic cloves are too strong. Excellent in won-ton soup!

I hope that the administrators don't frown upon this little bit of advertising :x , but this is where I ordered my garlic:
http://www.seedsavers.org/Items.aspx?se ... image2.y=7 . It comes with great instructions on everything you need to know about growing garlic.

I hope this is helpful to all those who read it! 8)

I once had an unfortunate garlic incedent in home ec. Our big project was a spaghetti dinner (well, lunch actualy) and we put a member of our group in charge of the garlic bread. when we sat down to eat, she picked up a slice and asked "eww, who put all this butter on the garlic bread?" response: "uh, Mary Cathrine, that was you." she took a bite, and then asked some thing along the lines of "who put so much garlic in this?!?" response: "that was you Mary Cathrine" I was the only one who could eat the stuff. (also, this is entirely random, but that home ec. group not only had a Mary Catherine, but a Mary, and a Cathrine, wierd huh?)

Garlic has valuable nutient properties.

Also, it is delicious.

Garlic bread has to be the greatest food ever conceived.
